6 home remedies to cure the flu naturally

Did you know that the flu can be treated with a number of popular home remedies that will help alleviate its symptoms? Discover 6 effective natural remedies.

What is the flu and what are its symptoms?

There is nothing more annoying, painful and feared than the flu. Every year the vaccination period begins, a campaign specially designed for those known as risk groups, which are definitely population groups in which vaccination is especially recommended, since they have a greater risk of complications derived from the disease in case contagion.

In any case, the flu is basically an infectious disease characterized not only by its acute symptoms but also by being extremely contagious. It is caused by a virus (usually influenza B viruses, more common than influenza A viruses), which is easily transmitted through the air and tends to enter the body through the mouth or nose.

Among the symptoms that most commonly appear as a result of influenza infection, we can mention a more or less high fever that usually lasts between 3 to 4 days, pain that is often strong, chills, fatigue and weakness, as well as headache, discomfort and chest discomfort, and cough.

In fact, one of the main differences between flu and cold symptoms is that flu signs and symptoms tend to come on suddenly, while cold signs are gradual.

How to treat the flu with natural remedies? 10 useful remedies:

Although the flu is certainly an inevitable evil for many people, there are a number of  home remedies and natural remedies that help us against the flu.

For both autumn and winter times and cold moments like the ones we are living in, real flu epidemics can occur that can affect the health of our body.

To help you in the treatment of the flu itself, we have collected below an interesting and useful list in treating the flu in a totally natural way; under simple home remedies to prepare that will help you in a healthy and healthy way.

1. Proposes

Proposes is really good against the flu, since it has a large amount of flavonoids, which promote the body’s defenses against multiple multiple aggressions, such as viral, bacterial and fungal. It is also very beneficial against respiratory diseases.

2. Echinacea

Echinacea also helps against the flu, since its many constituents act by improving immune defenses, while by containing polysaccharides; they protect cells from viral attacks.

But its properties do not end here, since it has alamedas with antifungal and antibacterial properties, and elements with anti-inflammatory effects.

3. Willow

If the flu has caused you a fever, willow has properties similar to those of aspirin, being indicated to relieve the symptoms of colds and flu.

4. Eucalyptus fumes

We have already talked to you about eucalyptus fumes in other moments. Although they are very interesting in case of flu, the truth is that they are tremendously useful for any respiratory condition that causes nasal congestion and mucus.

This is because eucalyptus has both expectorant and decongestant qualities, which will help positively when it comes to reducing the little mucus that tends to appear when we suffer from the flu.

To prepare the eucalyptus steam, we only have to put some eucalyptus leaves to boil, and being careful not to burn yourself with the steam, place your head on top, covering yourself with a towel. The key is to breathe the fumes. It is advisable to do it morning and night.

5. Ginger

Ginger is another tremendously effective natural remedy when it comes to curing ourselves from the flu, and reducing its most annoying and painful symptoms. In particular, ginger acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, which means that it is extremely useful in reducing muscle aches so common in the event of the flu.

Preparing the ginger infusion is actually very simple. We just have to put a few pieces of ginger in a saucepan or saucepan with boiling water, let it boil for 10 minutes, and after this time turn off the heat, cover and let it rest for another 10 minutes. It is also advisable to add a little freshly squeezed lemon juice, which will help you enjoy an extra supply of vitamin C, so interesting for your defenses.

6. Make a delicious chicken flu soup

Believe it or not, did you know that a few years ago a scientific study found that the traditional chicken soup that our grandmothers made when we were little provides incredible benefits against the flu and cold?

This is due to the fact that its content in chicken, onion, carrots, parsley and other natural ingredients provide natural anti-inflammatory effects, so that it is able to naturally control the activity of neutrophils.

And what are neutrophils? They are granular leukocytes that tend to appear in very large numbers when we are flu, since they are produced by our immune system in order to protect our body.
