There are several natural alternatives to medication for getting rid of the flu quickly. Among the most effective natural remedies we have:


Ginger infusion, an excellent natural remedy

Ginger is known for its toning properties. It thus helps to boost your immune system, which was considerably weakened by the flu virus. It also helps to relieve congestion in a blocked nose, but also to relieve the sensations of stiffness caused by influenza.

To prepare your ginger tea, you will need fresh ginger root. Cut it into slices and then simmer it over low heat, with a little water, for about 30 minutes. Then filter everything, before drinking.

You can also make this infusion with powder, but the result is a little less effective.

Tips:

- Sweeten your infusion with honey. Not only for the taste, but also to strengthen its properties.

- Add lemon. Combining lemon and ginger has many virtues.


Cinnamon tea with honey

Cinnamon is not only a natural pain reliever, but it also has antibacterial and disinfectant properties. Honey, on the other hand, is known for its antimicrobial and toning properties. Consumed together, the duo quickly lessens the effects of the flu.

To prepare your herbal tea, it's simple: add a spoonful of cinnamon powder to a cup of boiling water. Leave to infuse for ten minutes, filter, then sweeten with a spoonful of thyme honey. It is best to drink the mixture while it is piping hot.


The squeezed lemon

Lemon is a fruit extremely rich in vitamin C, known to boost the immune system. Plain lemon juice also has powerful antiseptic properties that help lower fever, but also fight other flu symptoms, such as muscle aches ... To get the most out of your lemon juice, drink it well hot, mixed with simmering water and thyme honey. You will see that the benefits will not be long in coming.


Eucalyptus essential oil, grandma’s most effective natural remedy for the flu

Eucalyptus essential oil has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and cough suppressant properties. It is indeed one of the best natural anti-inflammatory drugs.

As such, it is an extremely effective natural remedy for combating various ENT infections, especially the flu.


To benefit from its benefits, several dosages are possible: - For example, you can pour a few drops of essential oil on a handkerchief. Then breathe this handkerchief several times a day. - Another method is to inhale the essential oil vapor. To do this: Pour a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil in a bowl filled with boiling water. Then breathe in the steam given off by the mixture, with your head under a towel and leaning over the bowl.
