Itchy, runny, stuffed up nose...allergies wreaking havoc an your system. Just reading those words almost makes me start itching! You can't breath, your throat itching and sore...
What's the difference between a cold and a flu? We have a couple of things that seem to help us out and relieve some of the symptoms.
Maybe it's just my imagination, but I think I get to feeling better sooner. Of course, there's that old line about the guy who calls the doctor and asks what he can do.The doc says get plenty of rest and fluids and it'll get better in about 7-10 days, or you can come in to see him for $75.00 or $100.00, he'll give you some cold medicine and a shot, and you'll get better in about a week.
Fast Flu Relief Home Remedy
Here's some of what I do for my allergies and colds. I like to get a little Listerine or similar mouthwash, one with at least 15% alcohol, some very warm salt water, and of course, some tea tree oil.
The Aborigines used the tea tree leaves to relieve their colds by breathing in the steam off of the leaves and twigs in hot water, so we can imitate that with a little tea tree oil.
A vaporizer or diffuser at night can be used to fill the room with tea tree vapors, and may ease your breathing. Just add ten drops of the oil to the vaporizer or diffuser.
Thankfully God has given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, because with them we can help our body to heal itself. Among those herbs, there are several herbs for flu which are highly effective. I've prepared a page dedicated to explaining a few of them.
For allergies, several things besides salt water and tea tree oil can be very helpful. To aid in your bodies defenses, nutritional support may help. Specific herbs, probiotics, and a complete vitamin, essential oil, and mineral regimen may make allergies and the allergy season seem to go away.
I've discovered that nutritionally supporting your body as you go through the allergy season seems to help!
There are formulas that support healthy lung function and help support the body during seasonal changes. It also encourages the entire respiratory tract to gently cleanse itself and helps promote respiratory tissue health.
Airborne particles are everywhere. When particles enter the respiratory system via the nose or the mouth, the body turns on its cleansing mechanisms, and the immune system is put on active duty. Herbal nourishment supports a healthy respiratory system that can be challenged by inhaled irritants.
We recommend that you buy the best tea tree oil that you can find. We've been getting ours from the same place for years, and sure, we know we can find cheaper oil on the internet, but we have never found anyone who has better quality.
Get well soon. A lot of rest , fluids, supplements and eating right to build your strength go a long ways towards getting better.
