Climate changes, global crisis, collective exhaustion and depression lower our immune system and especially increase viral flu. We are on alert throughout the world right now.
The idea is to maintain our immune system strong and not get sick. If you do get sick, do not worry, there are home remedies that are very effective and can be prepared quickly without much effort but, like I always say, check with your holistic practitioner before. So here is are some new homemade recipes worthwhile checking out.
It is important to stay emotionally balanced too, because sadness, anger and other stronger emotions can easily make our immune system go down. Experts in metaphysics say that when countries are in crisis, disease and viruses increase or reappear. For example look to Haiti after the tragedy all kinds of diseases came back.
We have more than ever strange diseases in Venezuela, viruses like Ebola and others throughout the world. Metaphysics say the flu is a negative reaction to popular belief and fear. People tend to believe the statistics. Viral infections also mean a lack of joy, some bitterness. Seeing the big picture of the world, we should not be surprised at the increasing of these diseases again and outbreaks of viral diseases.
The idea is to strengthen the defenses of our body:
Whoever takes Zinc gets protection against influenza; 7mg (women) and 10mg (men)– oats, sesame seeds, liver, fish are foods that contain zinc.
The famous chicken soup contains zinc and it’s perfect for this time of out-breaking viral diseases! Add natural Garlic and ginger.
The fruit “mango” brings defenses up and also protects against influenza and by the way take cares of the skin and hair.
Ginger also raises defenses and raises the libido too. Prepare yourself a tangerine juice or “arepas” of rice with ginger.
Do some rubbing to raise defenses: Take a towel and soak it in cold water. Rub your body starting with the feet up to the head quickly. Start the right side and then left. Do not forget head and neck. Dress up warmly immediately or go back to bed. Repeat every 30 min for 6 times during the day. The body will detox and feel more relieved.
When you just feel the symptoms of any virus or flu, do the following:
Powerful home remedy: boil in 2 cups of water five stars of anise for 12 minutes, then turn off the heat and add a full cup of green tea leaves and let it cool. Every 4 hours take the exact measure of a cup of coffee, it is bitter medicine but highly effective. When the virus is stronger, do it for 3 days straight or more. This cuts the viral effect immediately.
Organic soy sauce is a great antiviral. Scientists have found that the flavor enhancer called “EFDA” (4′-ethynyl-2-fluoro-2′-deoxyadenosine) containing the fermented organic soy sauce, is an amazing medicinal antiviral, very similar to the medications given to patients carrying HIV, and it is not resistant to natural medicine, such as happens with drugs currently given to patients. This classic soy sauce is a powerful natural antivirus that is perfect to raise defenses and fight viral colds. When you have viral fever or flu, try this: Every 4 hours take a teaspoon of fermented organic soy sauce on the first day. Then 3 times per day. Do not overdo it because it can raise your blood pressure.
Ginger tea to soothe coughs and against phlegm. Prepare yourself a ginger tea and add black pepper, a few slices of lemon and orange and sweetened with honey—take a few cups throughout the day.
You can make your own natural antibiotic
If you have a big muscles pain, tension in cervical and headache massage yourself with warm olive oil and add some pure flower and plant essences as Lavander. (half cup of olive oil and 3 drops of lavender)
There are some joint care products which are perfect to reduce the swelling and soothe the pain in your body and headache. Try joint care containing Krill Oil with hyaluronic acid.
My holistic doctor recommends a wonderful French antivirus homeopathic medicine called L52 (Etats gripaux) in solution from Lehning Laboratories You take 10-20 drops in half glass of water. It is really amazing, although I take homeopathy only in emergencies.
And keep in mind, that taking green tea regularly raises the immune system and a good mantra in times of viruses would be:
“with love I let joy flow freely in my life. I love myself and I deserve to enjoy life. I accept all the pleasures that life offers me.”
