Well, you could eat foods that contain curcumin to help you not get the flu. Eating chili right before the flu season can help because of the curry.
Having sandwiches with mustard from that leftover stuff at Christmas and Thanksgiving can help also. Eating pickles helps also, curcumin is found in
cucumber, the Alum is an adjuvant, that will help it work. Saffron rolls are another thing that was eaten around this time of the year, real Saffron
has good antiviral properties.
People used to pay attention to their ancestors. The ways to not get the flu and colds were built into our traditions. By trusting in science
instead of observing our own relatives we have gone astray. Try Saffron tea, it will also help with the diarrhea. Remember to get electrolytes, when
fighting the flu we pee more if we don't get the runs. Mineral supplements will help and they will help reduce stomach acid also some times.
Sounds like people are having more than one thing at a time a lot, I had the stomach bug followed by a mild case of the flu. I fought it all right, I
noticed that I went through a lot of salt though, that made me feel weak. Eating Molybdenum containing foods can help to get rid of the muscle aches
and pains, a little cream of wheat or cocoa wheats works great. This helps us process the increased lactic acid that forms when sick. The lactic
acid makes muscles sore.
I don't know much about the herbs other than the ones used as spices in foods. I like the Chaga approach, that helps our body fight invading unknown
predators by creating a histamine reaction to fight things. Got to think of that a little. I have a lot of the weaker tinder mushrooms around which
also contain some of the Chaga chemistry. It also makes a tasty tea and isn't as strong.
