Each fall I make a big purchase of all of the natural remedies I use to keep my family healthy through the colder winter months here in Georgia.
These are seriously my family’s secret sauce for prevention, quick healing, and avoiding the doctor since the birth of my first daughter in 2009. As with any natural remedy, they need other action steps such as sufficient rest and sleep, excellent nutrition, and consistency with use. But I bet you already knew that. 😀
The BEST Natural Remedies for Cold and Flu
(Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. See complete disclosure.)
🍏 For Everyday Wellness and Prevention:
Beta-1, 3D Glucan: This first supplement is my FAVE for all year prevention and wellness. I have been taking Beta-1, 3D Glucan since I began healing my cancer naturally in 2008 and attribute it to keeping my immune system strong and working properly. Phyllis and Kim at Ancient Elements offer excellent bundles for stocking up.
Beta Kids: Same awesome Beta-1, 3D Glucan product but just in kids’ dosing and a sweet chewable.
Dr. David Williams Multi-Vitamin: My favorite multi-vitamin. Quality ingredients, covers all of your bases nutritionally, easy to travel with. This also needs to be purchased directly from the company and you can get up to 25% off your order by using this link.
🍏For Treatment or Cold and Flu Infection:
I continue the preventative measures above and add the following when dealing with fever, cold, flu, cough, stuffy nose, etc.
🍏 For Adults:
ACF: You just can’t beat it. It has knocked out persistent sinus infection, bronchitis (even when the doctor said I needed an antibiotic) and helped shorten the flu. We buy 4-5 bottles at the beginning of winter. Buy at Amazon.
Colloidal Silver: Used as an antibiotic and antiviral and can be taken by all ages. You can buy well made but pricey colloidal silver, but there are also some really great generic colloidal silver, too. For name brand I recommend Sovereign Silver here Amazon. For generic colloidal silver go to Silverbiotics at Amazon.
Apple Cider Vinegar: As a preventative drink 1-2 ounces daily mixed in 32 ounces of water and stevia or honey. Drink throughout the day. This will dry up your sinuses, reduce headaches, and help with persistent coughs from drainage. Also helps with sore throat! Buy from Amazon.
Garlic: Great antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral. Simply chop 1-2 cloves and take with a spoon. Chase with water. Take 3-4 times daily for treatment.
🍏 For Kids:
ALJ: This is a helpful herb that babies as young as 6 months can take to help bring up mucous out of the chest. I love giving my kids ALJ to prevent infection when they have colds. I give 10 drop on a spoon 3-5 times daily. Buy at Amazon.
And of course a shout out to BREAST MILK (not for sale on Amazon….but you might find some on Craigslist!) 😆
