A-CHOO!

Yep, Cold and Flu season has arrived.

And this year, for the first time ever, we have a totally new kind of flu… Covid-19.

So far, Covid isn’t really acting like the “usual” kind of flu. As of this writing, there is no vaccine, no treatment and no cure. None of the tried and true home remedies seem to do much but my doctor told me to go ahead and use them because they can’t possibly hurt me. But.. and here is the important part… none of these home remedies has any kind of proof of effectiveness and if you rely on them instead of seeking medical care if your condition worsens, you could do yourself some serious harm.

That being said, and presumably read, let’s take a look at some of those “home remedies”…

What are the main herbs used for Cold and Flu symptoms? Below we list our personal favorites. All have some measure of anti-viral properties, most of them taste pretty good, and as my doctor said, none of them can hurt you!

GARLIC
GINGER
THYME
