Natural Cures For the Flu - More Than Home Remedies

A half teaspoon of colloidal silver for kids and a teaspoon for adults can be swallowed to ease or eliminate flu symptoms.


At the first sign of a flu, put a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide into each ear, one ear at a time. Keep the solution in for 10 minutes or until the bubbling stops. Your temperature should start dropping within minutes, and your flu should be gone within 12 to 14 hours.

NOTE: Do not put liquids into your ears if you have a ruptured ear drum.


Diffusing Oregano Essential Oil will either keep the flu away entirely or at least dramatically decrease its severity and duration. To diffuse oregano essential oil, put some water into the aromatherapy diffuser, add five drops of the oil, and light a candle underneath. Once you see a mist rising from the diffuser, keep the mixture burning for at least 20 minutes, even if you have to replace the candle.


Sambucol is elderberry extract, and it gives remarkable results when taken for the cold. Taken early enough, it will stop the cold in its tracks. Taken after the cold has really set in, Sambucol can still shorten the length and severity of the cold. According to Dr. Andrew Weil, "A more recent laboratory study of three different Sambucus formulations, tested on blood from 12 healthy donors, showed that they increased production of inflammatory cytokines, which are immune system mediators. This finding indicates that Sambucus might help activate a healthy immune system. You can also get Sambucol for Kids (when they can keep it in stock) or Sambucol tablets. Or, you can give children half the dose of the regular Sambucol.

Another brand of elderberry syrup is Dynamic Health Black Elderberry Liquid Extract, although this one comes with honey so it is not recommended for children under 2 years old.

A variation on elderberry syrup is Apitherapy, which also contains raw honey, echinacea root extract, organic apple cider vinegar, and propolis extract. This combination may be even more powerful.


Replacement For Tamiflu

Tamiflu is an antiviral medicine that doctors can prescribe to prevent the swine flu or to shorten its duration and severity. Sambucol is a natural antiviral medicine that is available without a prescription.

Doctors may not agree to (or be allowed to) give you a prescription for Tamiflu if you or someone in your household does not already have the swine flu. But you can order Sambucol today. You can be prepared and save money. Each member of the family would need their own bottle for full protection.

Either Sambucol or Tamiflu should be taken within 48 hours after becoming sick - the earlier the better. Having the medicine on hand in advance will assure that precious time is not wasted.

Doctors recommend that neither medicine be taken to prevent the swine flu unless someone in your household already has the disease. Taking it before it is necessary can cause it to be less effective when you do need it.
