I'm not going to talk about the WUFlu here, but I would like to discuss things in general
seen as folk remedies for the flu.
-Please note this is not medical advice, just things that have worked for me in the past that has been handed down.
I urge everyone to share what has worked for them.
#1 if you have the flu, do not lay on your back, at all, at any time. Seriously, sit up or prop up. I can't stress this enough.
I have had a friend die from the flu and it may have been caused from sleeping on her back. There is a lot of medical evidence
to support this. Some people fall in a deep sleep (or are medicated) and choke on their vomit or mucus, some will get fluid in their lungs. DONT LAY
-drink hot spicy liquids
-eat garlic, eat honey, ginger root, celery, lemons, oranges, any kind of pepper
-Chinese Hot and sour soup is one of the best foods for the flu, but since WUFlu has Chinese origins, maybe best to make homemade instead of
- Take hot showers and hot baths, lots of heat and humidity helps
- drink lots of water but make sure you are getting enough salt
Wash your blankets and sheets often
Spray & clean common household areas with peroxide
Keep your spirits up, watch comedies, get fresh air and light
Use essential oils or herb packets. I know some people think this is woo woo, try it before you bunk it.
