Ways to Beat the Flu

There is nothing worse than feeling your body succumbing to the attack of a virus. Over the past several months there have been many reports of people suffering for weeks and months from the flu, and there have been numerous deaths. When the doctor visits and prescribed meds aren’t doing much to stop or reduce the impact of the flu, it makes one wonder if there is something more that can be done. I’ve learned there is. You are allowed and should ask to be tested for particular viruses such as Influenza/H1N1.

Stated by online flu news at http://drugtopics.modernmedicine.com: “2,600 hospitalizations, due to laboratory-confirmed influenza, have been reported from October 2013 to January 2014, which represents a cumulative rate of 9.7 hospitalizations per 100,000 individuals. The predominant virus this year is H1N1, the same virus that was responsible for the 2009 influenza pandemic.”

Recently, I had been attacked by a bug, wasn’t sure what it was but it freaked me out and made me believe that the flu may have gotten a hold of my immune system, and would begin to take my body by storm. I called my friend Organic Chef and Personal Trainer Minh Nguyen for some immediate advice. Along with doing my own research, I can successfully say I killed the bug in four days. Here was my regimen:

• A bulb of garlic, yes the whole bulb. Why? Because the raw veggie kills virus’ that are within your body by attacking them directly. I cut up the garlic bulb and mixed it in pasta. It’s not a great breath freshener, but let’s face it, you won’t be doing any lip-locking under these conditions.
• I drank ginger root tea to help with my sore throat. I also added it to my bath water for detox purposes.
• Wellness Formula, in pill or liquid form (which is available at Sprouts or Wholefoods), and take as much as it says, which is six at the first sign of an illness.
• Detox bath soak for 40 minutes. The first 20 minutes are to remove toxins; the next 20 to absorb minerals. The detox mixture includes Epsom salts (2 cups), baking soda (1-2 cups) and two ginger root tea bags added to a hot tub of water.
• Add aroma therapy to your health regimen: doTERRA makes great essential oils, Deep Blue helps sooth your achy    muscles or lavender for relaxation.
• Then immediately after these steps, wrap your body in a warm blanket and stay covered for the next few hours.
• Drink plenty of water or electrolytes, like Gatorade or Pedialite, to replenish your overall hydration.

I continued this routine for four days, and then I was good to go. And, as for going to the doctor, I wrote mine an email through Sharp. I told her of my symptoms. She gave me advice if the illness continued.

To learn more about proactive measures, visit www.doTERRA.com and get yourself an array of essential oils to prevent diseases, illness, promote sleep, and get rid of headaches and more. They truly are amazing and worth the investment.
