Herbal Remedies for Cold and Flu

Here we are in the middle of a deep freeze and cold and flus are rampant. With the addition of H1N1 to our concerns, the need for vaccines and other preventatives have never been higher. But if you are among those who are not high risk for swine flu or who refuse the vaccines for whatever reason you may prefer to use herbal remedies for the everyday coughs and sneezes as they come along. Personally I am always in favor of the most natural solution to any illness or everyday need.

Here are some of my favorite fixes for coughs, colds and flu. Depending on how bad your brand is, it will be up to you to decide which remedy might help and when it is time to run up the white flag and head to the doctor. But for most of us, a sore throat or cough usually just means Vitamin C tablets and Echinacea tea and this can often be good enough. But in case you are looking for more ammunition in your arsenal, here are some good ideas.

BREATHING DIFFICULTY / CONGESTION

The remedies work well for breaking up congestion and freeing up the airways. I suggest also washing your sinuses with salt and baking soda in warm water. If you continue to be breathless, heavily congested or unable to breathe, please go to the doctor and get treatment for the infection. Also, take some garlic. Lots of it. This helps the system fight it.

ROSEMARY STEAM

Ingredients:

Water
Dried Rosemary Leaves and Stems

Method:

Necessary Test: Test sensitivity to steam. Boil water and put it in a glass bowl. Put a towel over your head and hold your face at least 12 inches away from the steam. If steam causes coughing or wheezing, stop and do not make steamers for your Asthma.

Steamer: If you can tolerate steam, then proceed with steamer. Simmer 1/2 cup of dried Rosemary in 4 cups of water for 10 minutes. Strain hot water into glass bowl. Put towel over back of your head and hold your face at least 12 inches away from the steam. Breath deeply.

If you tolerate this well, then continue use. You may want to try this steamer with Peppermint or Thyme, as well. If you like, you try it with essential oils. Remember, though that essential oils are greater in strength than fresh herbs and only a small drop should be added to hot water and only AFTER the water has been removed from heat and placed in the glass bowl. If they cause coughing or wheezing, return to using fresh herbs.

HERBAL STEAM BATH

1 tbsp Chamomile Flowers
1 tsp chopped Eucalyptus leaves

Place a towel behind your head to catch the steam and inhale! You may also add the hot, steaming tea to a prepared bath and climb in! The aromatherapy will clear the air passages.

When cool, strain the Honey through a small colander or tight sieve, removing all of the flowers, herbs and seeds. When the Honey seems brownish and clear, you may bottle it in a glass, stoppered bottle and store in the refrigerator. Take a tablespoon at a time for coughs.

These recipes make great homemade resources for simple colds, coughs and flus. Remember if you think you have something more serious, you should to the doctor for the current medications like Tamiflu or to get a shot. I am leery of vaccines so I tend to make use of more natural resources when available. If you are like me, prefer to live a more natural lifestyle or have religious reasons for avoiding commercial medications, these natural remedies can be a godsend. Remember to stay warm, stay out of stuffy crowded areas and take care of yourself. Enjoy the winter.

    Loud snoring is often linked with sleep apnea, a
    typical disorder that can be hazardous. In sleep apnea, your
    breathing can grow to be really shallow or even quit. During
    sleep, insufficient air flows into your lungs as well as the amount of oxygen inside the blood
    may possibly lower. When regular breathing re-starts,
    a loud snort or choking sound may possibly take place.

    Hi, I believe your blog could possibly be having internet
    browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

    Other than that, wonderful site!

      Thanks for reading my blog and complimenting it. I appreciate it. However, the browser issue is not one I can do a thing about. This is the WordPress site and they control the technical end of the blogs they service. I cannot make it work with any browser and if it doesn’t work with one or the other, that would up to their webmasters to address. Perhaps you can leave a remark for them on the front page of the Worpress site? They have a link to contact them there. Otherwise, thanks for reading and I suppose you will have to read it in Safari. I use Maxthon and Firefox with no problems myself.

    These are great home remedies Thank you for this post …but one question ..where can one get theses ingredents?

    • 9

      spacecoaststargirl said,

      Most of the ingredients and common herbs and spices. Most natural food stores, co ops and herbalists will have a supply of the less common herbs like Coltsfoot, Elderflowers, Eucalyptus, Horehound or Mullein. But many of these use ordinary spices like Mustard, Ginger and Rosemary. Seriously. If you need help, go online and search for herb supply houses. None of these herbs and unavailable in America.
