Or you could try hydrogen peroxide in your ears. I've used that at the first sign of symptoms and next day felt 100% better.

How do I do that

Caren Cameron 3 years

How long do I leave it in for

Caren Cameron 3 years

Use a dropper, drop several drops into your ear, leave it in for 10-15 mins. You'll know when because the bubbling will almost completely stop. Then drain into a cotton ball and repeat on the other ear.

Tana Green 3 years

Use oregano oil or fresh in your tea.

soak in a bath with baking soda and Epson salt. Onions on the bottom of your feet with socks all night long. Sip frequently on peppermint tea.

I have always been scared of Epsom salt baths due to the vaginal area, won't it effect my pH or burn?

Caren Cameron 3 years

Not at all! You can't tell a difference in the water at all.

Sonita Haywood 3 years

no, but if you are concerned with that you can add a little but of acv for balance. I just don't know if the angel will be too much with the nausea

When u do the neti pot keep your mouth open and breath through it. That keeps anything from running down your throat. Take EV coconut oil 1 tbs a day on toast eat a clove of garlic and up your vitaminc. That's what I did last time I had it and it was gone in 3 days plus I really didn't feel bad at all. EV coconut oil has properties that kill the flu virus. They gave me tamiflu also and I'm the same no way will I take it.

I think I am going to try a steam wassh cloth Instead of netti pot I can't even eat toast right now my throat feels like sand paper, I ha e been doing chicken broth

When I had the flu, I did oil of oregano in a glass of water. I believe 1 drop. It's pretty strong. I also crushed garlic and placed in a spoon and covered with honey and ate the whole spoonful and drank a glass of water after. And I drank lots of bone broth.. All mothers orders it took a little bit but I got over it with no meds.

Lindsey Cullen

Love bone broth so good for you

Do you have any essential oils on hand? Diffusing hot oils helps greatly with congestion.

Sonita Haywood

No I don't I wish

Caren Cameron 3 years

I put eucalyptus oil on my wrist too! Breath it in all day. I use a humidifier also. I like to eat really spicy hot foods too. Like hot and sour Chinese soup, Indian curry etc. Lots of water a natural decongestant. Rest.

Sherry Hilliard

Hot shower... Hit as you can stand it all on the top of your head and face. It will help the congestion in your head move. Also will help the congestion in your chest.

Melessa Schultz

That's what I want to do as well, but I had surgery on my meniscus and the shower makes me scared, I have to have my SO stand in it with me so I don't fall

Caren Cameron 3 years

I have a sinus infection right now and my head is whomping but the shower helped and it lasted quite a while. Maybe just steam? Boil some water and make a tent over your head and the pot (after you take it off the heat) Just sit like that for a few. Easier than putting 2 people in the shower

Melessa Schultz 3 years

Love that idea, going to try it ty

Caren Cameron 3 years

If you have it you can also add a drop or two of some eucalyptus oil to some coconut oil (Id start with 1) and rub on your chest neck and back. It will open you up. Careful.. That is STRONG stuff!!

Caren Cameron 3 years

Put a huge chunk of it in water with ginger peppercorns and cloves boil simmer drink. Also if you have powdered ginger make a ginger bath. As hot as you can stand. Soak for at least 10 min. Hop out get dressed and under the covers you will continue to sweat.

I haven't been sick since doing Organic Sulfur Crystals. This is an amazing element that is missing in our diet since the government has been allowing the use of chemical herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers. The body heals when given the right tools. Patrick McGean is the director of the Organic Sulfur Crystal Cellular Matrix Study. Do some research-you will be pleasantly surprised. His number is 1-801-290-2013.

Chop up some Ginger Root Tea and simmer it for 10 minutes in water... Strain it, let it cool a bit... Then add 2T of raw honey and the juice of an organic lemon or two... Drink this and an hour later drink another cup. This stuff works.
