Ginseng- It looks like a “little straw man” and is prized for its whole-body benefits, but did you know that ginseng may also help to prevent and treat influenza according to one recent study?

Published in April 2014 by Sang-Moo Kang of Georgia State University, the study found that ginseng can help treat and prevent influenza and respiratory syncytial virus, a virus that infects the lungs and breathing passages.

Garlic- Just because it’s cheap and plentiful doesn’t mean it’s anything less than devastatingly effective.

Garlic is well known as one of the most potent natural antibiotics out there,and some people have even begun using it in soups with anywhere from 10-50 garlic cloves to knock out viral infections at the first sign.

Studies showing garlic’s flu fighting power include this one from June 2012 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which also reduced symptoms and the number of work days missed due to illness.

Garlic is one of the strongest natural treatments of its kind, and other strong anti-viral supplements like coconut oil and oil of oregano also show promise.

However you choose to treat the flu, be consistent with it, choose organic supplements when possible and be sure to consult with a trusted naturopathic doctor before making any major changes. Also consider taking a natural vitamin D supplement and getting plenty of trace minerals such as zinc, as well as the high quality natural vitamin C foods like oranges, kiwis, peppers, or even supplements like Camu Camu.

The flu can be serious business, but it doesn’t have to be, with the right natural remedies of course.
