Try out these all-natural, home remedies for the cold and flu to stay healthy this winter.

Unfortunately, we are still in the midst of cold and flu season.  If you are starting to feel run-down and a little bit sick, the idea of taking medication or scheduling an appointment with your doctor might seem highly unappealing.  Fortunately, there are some all-natural solutions that you can try.  Here are some of the home remedies for the cold and flu that you should test out this season.

Oregano Oil

Historically, oregano extract has been used to treat respiratory issues such as coughs, colds, flu, sore throats, and bronchitis.  In recent years, research has proven that the oils found in the oregano plant have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.  Additionally, consuming oregano oil can also alleviate feelings of nausea and upset stomach.  All these benefits make oregano oil a great home remedy for cold and flu.  When choosing an oregano oil supplement, focus on ones that use P73 oregano as this is the highest quality and most effective version of the herb.

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract (OLE) is an immune booster and flu treatment.  This extract is loaded with compounds that have many health benefits including acting as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cancer fighter, antimicrobial, antiviral, and so on.  OLE can be found in capsules, oils, and teas.  For treating the flu, experts recommend the capsules or tea.

Ginger

Ginger root naturally combats nausea and vomiting, making it a wonderful flu treatment.  To treat the flu at home, you can buy ginger root capsules, powders, or extracts.  You can also buy organic ginger ale with no corn syrup or use fresh ginger to make tea to sip on throughout the day.
