Healthy Living-Helping ease the flu symptoms


sick hand

During this tumultuous cold and flu season, isn’t it nice to hear of natural ways, some in the form of teas, to relieve some of the symptoms? Take a look:

Cold symptoms- Garlic, honey and lemon. Not the most enticing combination for a tea drink, but if you want to help relieve your symptoms, give it a try. Besides, if you have a cold, you can’t smell the drink anyway.

Nausea and Vomiting- Ginger is the remedy I learned in the Philippines. Take fresh ginger and grate about a teaspoon of it. Add to your coffee cup with boiling water. It’s harsh to drink, so put some honey and lemon juice in there as well. In about an hour, you’ll see results.

Indigestion- Believe it or not, cayenne pepper and peppermint are your relievers. Two extremes of the word pepper right? Which ever is your preference, add them to boiling water and drink. For Cayenne, 1/4 teaspoon will do and peppermint, go for a whole teaspoon.

Diarrhea- good times…Ok, cinnamon is a spicy, double-edged sword that can slay even food poisoning.  Cinnamon oils kill the bugs that cause the problem. It has compounds such as mucilage and tannins that dry diarrhea right up. Use 1/2 of a teaspoon in boiling water three times a day.

Gas- Go buy some fennel. You can find fennel seeds in the spice area of your grocery, or you can buy the fresh stuff and boil a couple stalks in water to drink. Drink one dose three times a day.

Constipation-Go pick up some Dandelion. Dandelion stimulates bile production, which in turn resolves constipation. Use one teaspoon in boiling water. You can drink this three times a day.

Cramps- This requires a trip to the health food store. It’s called Blackhaw (viburnum prunifolium). Blackhaw bark can make intestinal twinges disappear and it’s especially helpful for women with menstrual cramps. Tincture 1:1 10 drops.

Stomach soother- Yay! Marshmallows! They contain a soothing substance that makes upset digestive tracts feel a lot less upset. Great for intestinal flu or food poisoning. If you can find “old school” style marshmallows at the health food store, even better. The original marshmallow confection was called, “pate de guimauve” and contained marshmallow root extract.

Stress related ills- Chamomile is the ultimate digestive helper. Drink this three times a day. It really helps. Drink it before every meal if you can.

Stressed to the max- Valerian blocks the transmission of stress from the mind to the digestive tract. Use Valarian if you’re really stressed and have digestive problems. If you know a stress moment is coming, drink it before you step into the situation. These come in tablets- Follow the directions on the bottle.

Ulcers- Licorice is proven to speed the healing of digestive ulcers. Try and take the dried root form in a tablet. Keep in mind ingesting licorice over a long period  is actually not so good for you. ( water retention, sodium, lack of cortisone) So consult your nutritionist for details on that one.

Always be sure to do your own research or consult a nutritionist. Stay healthy! xo
