A substitute for this home remedy is to use whiskey or brandy instead of leftover mash. Consume the preparation 3 times a day, between meals, and immediately the cold or flu will return. Or take half a teaspoon of nutmeg powder with warm water 3 times a day.
Shaker Spiced Grape Juice Recipe
? This drink is a great alternative to hot apple cider and the closest to a Greek drink ?non-alcohol? called Tsiporou (or Raki) I can find. I've only had it once and got the recipe at Pleasant Union, one of the Shaker settlements here in Kentucky.
-3 cups concord grape juice (Welches is the best)
-3?4 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 pinch clove
-1?4 cup sugar (optional)
-3?4 teaspoon nutmeg
-1 tablespoon honey
Combine all ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain if necessary. Serve hot.
Yields 3 cups. Drink throughout the day.

I have switched to Oil of Oregano as my first defense against sore throat/cold and flu or earache linked to the throat. I used to do Cayenne pepper gargles (which DO work really well) but I find oregano oil even more effective and far simpler and less time consuming to administer.
I use 4 drops under the tongue (as per instructions on the label - different brands may have different dosing so do check). I leave the oil there for a few seconds then swallow in several small "gulps" making sure to linger on the throat as long as possible. It's potent stuff and not the most pleasant as it will sting/burn the throat a bit and makes me cough but that goes away very quickly.
Make sure to always do it on a FULL stomach (so as not to irritate the stomach lining) and repeat up to 3 times a day. I take it until I'm pretty certain it's killed the virus; usually, 1 - 3 times does the trick! I buy an organic brand from my local health and wellness store.

Using Turmeric, Garlic, Lemon, ACV, Honey, Black Pepper, n 1/2 tsp. coconut oil mix together, taking 1tbsp. daily helps fight off any cold, flu.
They have all that one would need to help keep some health, As through the past 8 years, I have been doing this remedy. I have yet been sick. I also started a page of my own to help others to help to get healthy with out Big PhArma. If we all learn to care for our own bodies from the Mother Earth. We wouldn't need. We all need clean running water, as the water supple is unhealthy. With all the Chemicals n toxic waste, staying health with the right food n herbs n spices is the best way to go. At one point I could pay for the medication that were slowly taking n eating my body from the inside is what brought me here eating from Mother Earth. I don't get sick from the pills, or sick from the colds, flus ECT... Thank you, this is my experience with my own body. I feel better now than I did in the past years.

"The simple remedy not to get disease during long distance flying is to take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 2000 mg of vitamin C before, during and after the trip. The negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) of a chemical of vitamin C is strongly negative in an alkaline solution of baking soda, which will counteract quite easily the positive charges of static electricity caused by the plane as it flies high in the clouds."

My friend from Guadalajara, Mexico swear by this herbal tea for general health and to prevent cold/flu virus?s in the body. She said this is what they are using there to prevent Covid19. They said it is to be drank everyday to prevent you from becoming sick. I just started drinking mine and already feeling better from a lingering head cold and fever. The Amish have a similar recipe.
As a preventive = drink 1x/daily
Currently ongoing sickness = drink 3x/daily
*1 pint glass mason jar or similar object with lid
*Boiling hot water
*2 cloves garlic (minced)
* 1 onion slice ?red, yellow or white your choice? (chopped)
* 1? ginger root fresh (grated)
* ? lemon (squeezed and add w/peel to jar)
* ? lime (squeezed and add w/peel to jar)
* 1 tablespoon honey

I am 71 yrs old, haven't had the Flu since I was 21yrs old. Never had a Flu shot, don't plan on ever having one, people I know get one every year, every year they get the Flu.

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!

Also, studies have shown that taking N-Acetyl Cysteine reduces the chances of getting the flu, and its severity if you do get it. It is good for liver, lungs and much, much more. Well worth a little research.

8 oz of hot water, 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 jigger whiskey, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 2 shakes of cayenne pepper. Stir and drink slowly. Enjoy.

We usually use a homeopathic spray to be rubbed in the skin (Spenglersan G = Haemophilus influenza comp) 3 x /day + 4-5 g Vitamin C (preferably Liposomal)/day and 500mg of N-AcetylCystein (alternatively 5 gloves of raw garlic), 2-3 Liters of purified water. Fluid, rest and proper sleep are essential for quick recovery.
Severe cases - can be accelerated by IV or rectal ozone + I.V. Vitamin C, Zinc and NAC.

I ended up having to stay up late...not by choice...but knew this would really do me in the next day and I'd be a wreck in bed w the flu. Knowing I still had to get up early for my 3 kids to send them off to school (single mom), I decided right before I got in bed, to take a couple pinches of Baking Soda in water--as I read this helped a woman wake up in the a.m. and not sleep in.
Not only did I wake up...but I woke up before my alarm, refreshed, full of energy, and NO FLU SYMPTOMS. It's like I never even had it. I am shocked.
I take a ton of natural things for illness but this has to be the fastest, most effective, and cheapest I've ever encountered.

My symptoms - fever of 101, slight headache, achy feeling, coughing, lethargy - this all happened within 1 hour. You have to hit it early.
1. Take 1,000mg (1 GM) of Vit c every 5 minutes up to bowel tolerance. For me, bowel tolerance was 40 GM (40,000 mg). Note - for some folks, this amount is probably too low. If you have questions, look up Dr. Andrew Saul on YouTube. He will set you straight.
2. Put 1 drop of peppermint oil under each nostril to keep the coughing down. It also helped with the headache. Did this about three times during the day.
3. Spread a quarter size dollar of magnesium lotion on the back of arms, feet, neck - to ease all the aches in body. Makes you more comfortable.
4. Take 2 tsp of colloidal silver 3 times a day.
5. Plenty of green tea. ( I drank about 4 cups the first day with lemon and honey).
Repeat the next day. I went to work the next day, had the Vit c tabs in my pocket, and my bowel tolerance was 13,000 mg. Don't put the Magnesium on till evening - it makes me sleepy.
This protocol is safe for kids and adults. You just have to get to bowel tolerance to make it work!

At any rate, sure enough exactly 48 hours later, I started getting achy joints and a headache. It was the middle of the day and I took 1/2 capsule of BHT in half a glass of water. My achey joints disappeared by evening. I took another 1/2 capsule of bht the following morning just to be safe. Symptoms COMPLETELY gone after that.
The h2o2 inhalation method used to be my "go to" remedy for viruses, but it didn't always work. BHT has worked for me 100% with minimal dosing (i.e., one at onset of symptoms, another 12 hours later).
Mama To Many (Tn) on 10/23/2017
I don't usually have fresh ginger on hand, but do right now. I have been using it in a warm apple cider vinegar drink. So tasty!
Mix together in a larger mug or to go coffee mug to keep you cozy when you go out in the cold.
I think I would especially love this if I had a cold or the flu.
