Natural Flu Fighting Remedies

551 826 Melissa Mayer

Hey you guys! You might have seen on Instagram Stories that I have been pretty sick with the flu the past few days, so loading up on natural flu fighting remedies to help me feel better has been such a necessity. I know the flu is going around like crazy this year, and our doctor said it’s the worst one yet, so I wanted to write this in hopes to help any of you going through it. January and February are key months for picking up germs unfortunately, so I wanted to share my go-to concoctions to boost the immune system and fight-off any bugs that try to get you down + I am going to share recipes I received on Instagram that have been absolute game changers. I can’t thank you all enough for your amazing, holistic tips and tricks! Doing all of these things has the flu almost completely out of my system, and it is the morning of Day 3. I am still fully resting, though, and continuing these practices until I am back to one hundred percent.

I also want to state prior to that I am not a doctor; these are simply things that work best for me. The doctor prescribed me with two medications yesterday, and I almost caved because I felt so desperate. I am so happy that I believed in my immune system and stuck to the most effective methods of healing for my body. I have worked so hard to repair my gut health, and after endless research about how destructive antibiotics are to your gut, I avoid them at all costs, especially because 80% of your immune system is in your gut to protect from illness and disease.
