Learn how to treat a virus naturally through these natural remedies, herbs, foods and favorite products. Not not only will this list help you ward off cold and flu bugs this winter, but it will also improve your health and resistance to several other dangerous viruses that one can be exposed to year-round!
As y’all know (if you follow me on Instagram) I’ve been SUPER sick the last week or so. I posted a story asking for some natural remedies because I went to the doctor and they prescribed me Amoxycillin… which didn’t work. I learned from a follower that it’s because I most likely have a VIRAL infection, not a bacterial infection. Basically this means Amoxycillin isn’t going to do anything to help.
You all responded with SO many wonderful tips, tricks, products + remedies. I couldn’t keep all this goodness to myself, so naturally, I had to blog about it!
I hope this list can be beneficial to anyone else out there fighting a virus, sinus problems, congestion or a cold!
Let me know if I missed anything and I’ll be sure to add it to the list 🙂
HOW TO TREAT A VIRUS NATURALLY THROUGH FOOD:
The first way to treat a virus naturally is through diet by increasing your consumption of immune-boosting foods. This includes green leafy vegetables, which provide Vitamin A, and foods high in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits and capsicum.
Probiotics such as greek yogurt or fermented food and drinks such as miso soup or kombucha will also contribute to fighting the infection. Whole30 Stuffed Peppers
I also take a prebiotic and probiotic from BIOHM most days. You can find their products here and use code HELLOSPOONFUL for 20% off 🙂
TIP: Try drinking warm water with apple cider vinegar (WITH the mother!), honey and cinnamon first thing when you wake up. Black tea is also rich in a group of pathogen-fighting compounds that can protect against a variety of viral infections.
If you’re really feeling crazzzyy throw your ACV, honey, and cinnamon in some hot black tea for an even bigger boost.
HOW TO TREAT A VIRUS NATURALLY THROUGH THESE ANTIVIRAL HERBS:
The second way to treat a virus naturally is through the use of antiviral herbs to enhance the immune system and prevent viral infections.
In addition, they can be used to provide cardiovascular, digestive, and anti-inflammatory support. They can be used as infusions, teas, or herb-infused oils.
Incorporate ginger, garlic, elderberry, oil of oregano, licorice root, echinacea, calendula, and cat’s claw into your wellness regime to prevent + fight viral infections.
