Flu Remedies

Well, after a week of living and dealing with sick people, as of Saturday afternoon, I am sick.

Fever, headache, congestion, runny nose, sore throat, stomach cramping, in other words, more than likely, the Flu.

We're all spread out enough to were we should have some unique remedies. Unfortunately for me, I'm relegated to Benadryl, as I have high blood pressure, and the majority of cold and flu meds make me feel like a basket case whose about to have a heart attack.

A neighbor of mine suggest lemon juice, whiskey and Tabasco, get under a blanket, and sweat it out. He's in his 90's. Alcohol seems to be his cure all.

What do you do when you fall ill?

Tea with honey and lemmon juice.
My cure for everything that ails me.
On another note, I don't think I've had the flu since I was a little kid.
I get a couple of bad colds a year, but the flu seems to stay away from me.
Hope you get better man!

Since I have been drinking my lemon juice and water on a daily basis for a few months, along with an annual flu shot, I hoping to avoid the nasty flu bug. Being retired and having the ability to avoid sick people who can't afford to be off from work certainly helps.

The juice of half a lemon in a glass of water, once a day is a good habit to get into.

The problem with lots of lemon juice is that after awhile, your teeth will make you look as if you were born and raised in England!

Fluids, lots and lots of fluids!

I drink about a gallon of water a day, when I feel down I add Green Tea to the mix with lemon and a smidge of honey.
