Swine Flu – Natural Remedies to Prevent Swine Flu

Swine Flu – Natural Remedies to Prevent Swine Flu

There are a few natural home remedies we can take to protect and prevent swine flu. Natural therapies have no side effects, unlike drugs and vaccines, and are good for our overall health. Here are four natural remedies for swine flu or other influenza:

1. Be sure to get enough Vitamin D and Vitamin C daily. Sunlight exposure is the most important source of Vitamin D, as well as dairy products, but many people will need to take a supplement to get enough. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and is important for good immune system function. Vitamin C is good to prevent and treat infections. It’s easy to get enough Vitamin C each day by consuming citrus fruits and juices.

2. Oil of Oregano is an extract from wild oregano plants, and has two compounds which may have positive effects on harmful bacteria. It’s a natural antiviral and antibacterial. It’s important to be sure the oil of oregano you buy is derived from Origanum Vulgare, and that the carvacrol concentration is at least 70%.

3. Liquid zeolite is another natural remedy. This tasteless, odorless and colorless liquid has no side effects and is safe for all ages. Liquid zeolite removes heavy metals and toxins from the body, and by doing so allows our immune system to do the job it is meant to do, keep us in optimum health. Just a few drops a day is all that is needed for detox.

4. Echinacea is an important herb used to treat different influenza and is also a natural swine flu prevention. It works by treating infections and increasing the body’s resistance against bacteria. It is only meant for short term use.

Also it’s important to avoid sugar. Sugar depresses the immune system, and because of this we can be more susceptible to swine flu and other illnesses. Sugar is present in so many prepared foods and in things we wouldn’t necessarily suspect, so it’s always good to read labels, and avoid processed food as much as we can anyway.

So those are a few simple natural remedies to help protect ourselves and our families from swine flu. I mentioned sugar because although it’s not one of the remedies, it’s very important to our overall health. When I visited a naturopath a few years ago for chronic infections, this is one of the first things she told me.
