Body aches, fever, chills and nasal congestion, common symptoms of the flu, can stop you in your tracks, leaving you bedridden for days.

 

“Complications arising from these illnesses can become serious,” says Dr. Suhyun An (drsuhyunan.com), an expert on regenerative medicine and co-author of “Demystifying Stem Cells: A Real-Life Approach To Regenerative Medicine.”

 

An says there are ways to prevent the symptoms from reaching that serious point. To feel better and get back on your feet, she recommends numerous natural cold and flu remedies to alleviate your symptoms:

 

Vitamin C. Some studies indicate that vitamin C can shorten the lifespan of a cold and boost your immune system. “The best way to get it is through your diet; the fresher the food, the better,” An says. “Oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruits, leafy greens, and bell peppers are all good sources of vitamin C. Be careful with supplements because they can lead to upset stomach and kidney stones.”

 

 

Honey. Honey has natural antiviral and antimicrobial properties. “Drinking honey in tea with lemon can ease sore throat pain,” An says. “Research suggests that honey is an effective cough suppressant, too. Honey often contains Clostridium bacteria, so never give honey to a child younger than 1-year-old because infants’ immune systems aren’t able to fight them off.”

 

Chicken soup. This popular cold and flu remedy helps because hot liquids reduce mucus buildup and keep you hydrated. “Chicken soup, in particular, has anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce a cold’s unpleasant side effects,” An says. “Keep some in the freezer or even canned for flu season. It’s quick to prepare that way and soothing to eat.”

 

Aromas. “When you have congestion from the flu, applying camphor or menthol salve around your nose can help break up mucus,” An says. “Aromatherapy oils, such as peppermint and eucalyptus, can have a similar effect. Also, vapor rub can reduce cold symptoms, especially in children older than 2 years. It helps open air passages to combat congestion, reduce coughing, and improve sleep. It’s a good alternative to over-the-counter cold medicines in young children because of unwanted side effects.”

 

Probiotics. These are friendly bacteria and yeast found in the body, some foods, and supplements. “They can help keep your gut and immune system healthy, and they may reduce your chance of getting sick with an upper respiratory infection,” An says. “For a delicious and nutritious source of helpful bacteria, include probiotic yogurt in your diet.”

 

“Colds and the flu are threats to us every year, but they don’t have to get us down for long,” An says. “Natural home remedies can reduce symptoms so you can be more comfortable and get the rest you need to get better faster.”

 

Dr. Suhyun An is the clinic director at Campbell Medical Group in Houston and an expert on regenerative medicine.

My girlfriend ex had herpes and didn't tell her. Then she had a breakout, but we didn't know what it was until after it went away. We had sex a few days after that. I was itching all the time. I went to the doctor to find out I had herpes. My herbal doctor (DR JOE) gave me HSV HERBAL REMEDY, and I took two teaspoon daily for good one month and three weeks just as instructed. I haven't had a breakout yet, and My last test came out Negative. For more information about this remedy, visit: ww w. besthealthherbalcentre .c om

A lot of people are overdoing it on Vitamin C right now. Make sure you take something like a KSPtab that will help your kidneys. The last thing you want to be forming right now is a kidney stone!

HOW I GOT CURED OF HERPES DISEASE

I'm here to testify about what DR. OSO did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain,especially inside my body. During the first year,I had faith in God that I would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OSO on how he cured her from herpes disease. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help. so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well I never believed it, well after all the procedures and remedies given to me by this man a few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as DR. OSO assured me that I will be cured, after some time. I went to my doctor to confirm if I had finally healed Behold, it was TRUE,the test came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact DR. OSO for help.
