Top 5 Natural Treatments of Flu

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 10:34 PM EST

Flu is actually a viral infection that directly affects the respiratory tract, affecting the nose, throat, and lungs. Though many symptoms of influenza are comparable with the common cold, the flu is more dangerous and, if the patient does not undergo proper treatment, it can lead to hazardous diseases like pneumonia. The flu is very unpredictable when it begins and how it takes off. The best way to protect against it is vaccination. However, apart from this, the best natural remedies can actually lower the effects of various symptoms and provide relief.
When symptoms of seasonal flu appear, the need of best treatment and proper remedies is a high priority to remain safe and prevent severe health risks. Some of the best remedies for flu, which prevent symptoms like fever, fatigue, muscle pain, headache, cough, and sore throat, are natural. Let us note the five best ways to treat influenza naturally.

Green tea extract is effective in inhibiting growth of the influenza virus. This effective remedy is the best one possible because of the catechin molecules present in green tea that attack the influenza virus and provide relief from the symptoms.
Ginger is a crucial warming botanical that has been long used in natural healing science. It has remained very effective in treatment of many kinds of illness. Its use in the treatment of flu is also well marked. It treats most common flu symptoms with proficiency, and thus, it is considered as one of the best remedies for natural treatment. The warming nature of ginger helps produce sweat and thus helps expel the pathogens or viruses in the best possible way.

Andrographis paniculata is an ayurvedic medicine in the natural healing science. It is effective in treating symptoms like cough, fever, sore throats, and headaches. This is one of the best remedies for the treatment of upper respiratory infections and illness.

With the onset of influenza, the respiratory tract struggles to flush out the invading viruses through viscous mucus. This process can be aided with the intake of water to heal the harsh symptoms by thinning mucus and thus helping expel the virus. Taking herbal tea and steam baths are some of the natural treatments that use water as the prime effective factor.
Among the natural treatment procedures of flu, taking honey during bedtime is effective for reducing common symptoms like cough and sore throat.
All the above listed natural remedies help the treatment for flu and provide relief from symptoms.
