If you are under the weather, there is no need to rush out to purchase an over the counter medication. Prompt relief can be found naturally with these two remedies that contain potent antibiotics and antiviral properties. Garlic in its natural form and oregano oil can stop a sore throat before it gets worse.
You can add 5 or 6 drops of oregano oil to a glass of water and drink it. Your flu will be gone in as little as 24 hours. Garlic on the other hand is known for it antibacterial properties. Two fresh cloves of garlic in a small glass of water will work wonders.
It should be noted that most children do not like these natural remedies as they are very strong in taste. I’ve found that spreading the oregano oil on the child’s feet works just as well as taking it orally. Women who are expecting should not take oregano oil and they should also limit their use of garlic cloves to one clove a day.
These natural remedies will help to knock that cold or flu out of your system. It is important that you also get the proper rest at all times so that your body can regenerate strength without getting rundown. If you happen to be suffering from the symptoms of a cold or flu, proper rest is important to permit the body to recuperate from the illness. Drinking lots of water will also help to flush the toxins out of your body.
Making sure that your body receives the important nutrients that it needs will also help it to resist disease and bacteria. Having enough of vitamins C & D in your body will also aid the body in resisting colds and the flu.
