Ted's Remedies Feedback for Flu
Tg (Manhattan, Ny) on 01/15/2013: YEA!! The aspirin remedy really helps beat the flu! I just used it to beat the flu, along with Vitamin C and Olive Leaf extract and it really works! I find it best to take it just before going to sleep... 4 low dose aspirin (81 mg).
Renee (Bergen Co., Nj) on 01/14/2013: Thanks, Ted, for the aspirin suggestion. I had been trying many different remedies for 3 days for my flu (e.g. , ACV/lemon juice/baking soda/cayenne, H2O2, etc. ). Perhaps I kept it from getting worse, but it showed no signs of leaving. Had low-grade fever, headache/sensitive scalp, congestion, cough, aches. Aspirin made a big difference. (I had taken Tylenol before with no change, fyi) I took two 325-mg aspirin after eating last night and had a very bad but productive coughing spell along with a bout of sweating. Had less congestion throughout the night. Slept w/ vaporizer-also good. Took 2 more this morning and had the same thing to a lesser extent -sweating, then slept, then less congestion. Strange that taking aspirin made me sweat, but then I slept and felt better afterwards both times. I know after days of trying too many remedies to list here that it was the aspirin that helped me turn the corner. Now maybe I should go buy some lysine to knock this thing out.
Andrea (Seattle, WA) on 04/25/2009: Ted's Remedies: Thank you so much for this remedy. I have been taking the Lysine by itself 1500 mg 2x day plus a little extra (1000 mg) before sleep and it it getting rid of congestion that I have had from this flu for several weeks now. Everyone I know has come down with this - especially those who have contact with the public as part of their work. I have had to take Excedrin Migraine (4 tabs at a time) for the headaches I'm getting, however it's better than having the congestion. Don't have any peroxide at the moment, will get some soon.
