Homecare Treatment for Influenza

Recovering from influenza can be a miserable experience with the onslaught of fever, cough and sore throat. In many cases simple home remedies may be all you need to recover from mild to moderate influenza.

Here’s a list of natural remedies for flu:

Stay hydrated

Water, fruit juices and electrolyte drinks are the perfect solutions for a flu bug.

Add hot soup to your diet

Although not scientifically proven, the vapour of hot soup may help you feel emotionally better.

Get well-rested

Good sleep cycles can boost immunity function, so be sure to get that 8 hours of shut-eye.

Invest in a humidifier

Moisture helps ease nasal congestion and sore throats.

Get steamy

Add essential oil into a steamy pot of water, drape a towel over your head and breathe deeply for 30 seconds.

Take medications

Cough drops, throat lozenges and hard candy can be surprisingly effective.

Swish and spit

Gargling with salt water helps get rid of the thick mucus and ease a stuffy nose.

Try nasal irrigation

Pick up a saline squeeze bottle. Pour salt water into one nostril and let it run out the other.
