I was around someone early in the week who thought she had the flu. 48 hours later I was experiencing early flu symptoms. Sore throat, malaise.
I immediately put hydrogen peroxide in my ears. (About a capful each ear.)
I gargled cayenne pepper water. (1/4 teaspoon cayenne in 3 ounces of water.)
I took 2 aspirin.
I repeated the hydrogen peroxide twice before going to bed.
I woke up not feeling the best and repeated the peroxide in the ears, the cayenne gargle and the aspirin.
By afternoon I felt completely fine and have ever since.
I think the earlier that remedies are begun the better!
