I have such a bad flu right now and i thought to share with you some quackeries from my country (remedies known by old people).
They are natural so it worth a try . We have lots of good natural remedies but i tried to post the most efficient of them ,simple and accessible for everybody
For sore throat:
-apply cabbage leaves around your neck.The cabbage is popular for it's anti-inflamatory proprieties.Soak the leaves in boiling water or put a little oil on them and then apply them around your neck.
-make gargle with water mixed with lots of salt,it's very good for the sore throat(if you can...i can't make gargle because i feel like i have to throw up..)
For head aches:
-apply a few slices of potatoes on your forehead and tie with a scarf
-soak your socks in vinegar or medicinal alcohol and wear them for 20 minutes ,every half of an hour re-apply vinegar.The temperature will go down.
For stuffy nose:
-apply on your forehead 2-3 spoons of shaving horseradish but on a material,not directly on skin because the horseradish can seriously inflame the skin.Kepp it for 5-30 minutes and repeat the treatment 2 times on day day....it's very very good for sinusite and stuffy nose
-inhalations with camomile tea-it is also very good for the skin(but cover completely your head and the cup).
-make a hole in a black radish and put honey in it.Leave it like that all the night for pickling and then drink that syrup
-onion tea-cut the onion in 4 pieces(don't peel it) and add it in the water then leave it to boil.Let it sit for almost 5 minutes after boiling and add honey into your teacup.
