Natural Remedy for Cold & Flu
The common cold has been rampant this season. We have got a simple remedy to clear it up quick! This can be used as a preventative measure or if you already are sick, you can do three to four times daily to boost your immune system and feel better quicker. Rather than taking OTC cold meds that just cover up the symptoms, why not treat the cold directly with natural antibiotics.
The medium chain fatty acids/triglycerides of coconut oil contain antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Raw honey contains bee pollen, which is known to provide allergy relief, ward off infections, and boost the immune system. Raw garlic contains something called allicin which is highly effective at killing microorganisms that cause infections such as the common cold and it's also anti-inflammatory.
Smash up a clove of garlic and combine it with a tablespoon of coconut oil and raw honey. EAT. Now, I will warn you...it will be intense. Raw garlic is powerful! But, your body will thank you, I promise:)
