My name is Rachel Yanofsky and I'm a certified health coach and want to recommend some of my favorite natural cold and flu remedies. As the cold, cozy weather approaches we are all prone to getting sick easier than normal. We can prepare our bodies as much as possible but we can still get sick. Hopefully you won’t be needing these remedies this fall and winter but if you do I hope this helps.
Ginger/Honey and Lemon Tea
This is one of my favorite remedies and a very simple tea to make. Ginger helps with reducing inflammation, while honey helps soothe the throat and lemon is a great source of vitamin C. This is all great for when you're sick so I highly recommend grabbing a mug and boiling some warm water then adding fresh ginger, honey and a few squeezes of lemon and then you have a yummy fresh tea.
I love Akasha's Purple Sea Moss Gel because it contains elderberry which is great for boosting your immune system. Elderberry can help with headaches, sinus infections, and help fight cold and flu symptoms. Elderberry can be found in tea, gummies and many other supplements. I love to add 1 teaspoon of purple sea moss gel to my berry smoothies so I can make sure I get a little bit of elderberry into my body.
This one is a given but we often forget how important sleep is. It’s so beneficial to give our bodies the proper amount of time to sleep so it can start to repair and heal itself while we are sick.
Steam is a great way to open up your sinuses to help relieve you of any discomfort. It’s a great way to detoxify the body when you're sick. I personally love adding eucalyptus oil to my steam showers because it also helps clear any nasal congestion. Steam is great to add into your weekly routines even if you're not sick.
When we are sick we tend to forget to hydrate but it happens to us all. This is one of the most important steps to recovering from your sickness. If we aren't hydrated our bodies become fatigued and our immune system isn’t as strong as we need it to be to fight off any infection. An easy way to get a little extra hydration is to add chia seeds and some lemon to your water.
