    Colds and flu are no problem, have a hot bath/shower and go to bed for a few days if necessary. Take anti-viral and immune-support herbs (herbal tinctures) like cats claw, olive leaf, andrographis, and a dash of ginger. Mix up a 2nd bottle of thyme and licorice to ease the cough. Don’t exceed maximum safe daily dosages; to be safe, consult a naturopath; Bob’s your auntie.
    You can also make up a killer hot drink of raw fresh ginger, garlic, honey, & vitamin-c powder (unsweetened) in good-quality hot water (not town tap-water). Add the honey and vit-c last when the drink’s cooled down a little.
    Stay as warm as you can and try to bring on a fever. Drink lots of good-quality water throughout the day. Relax. When it runs its course you’ll feel great.
    Adopt a healthy lifestyle before it happens so your body is able to safely handle it. Don’t get flu shots, or any shots, they’re a last-resort placebo that do more harm than good and are only for people who don’t take care of their own health.
