Natural Flu Treatment: 9 Proven Flu Busters

hey guys dr. Josh axe here welcome to ancient medicine today today we'd be talking about nine proven flu Buster's if you come down with a cold or a flu I'm telling you these herbs essential oils foods and natural medicines will work really really fast in helping you overcome a flu really really quickly and so also I want to start off the show saying hey thanks so much all of you that are watching this information I'm about to go through we need to teach the world about this so take a minute right now press your share button help us spread the word that food is medicine I'm going to dive right in here for you right now number one colloidal silver silver works and a fantastic way you know silver has been used for thousands of years in fact my grandma told me they used to take silver dollars and drop them in the bottom of milk jars to keep them from fermenting silver as antibacterial in nature silver works the same way in your body if you come down with a bad bacteria or a virus we actually know that silver can actually help kill off a virus a cold and a flu very very quickly so using colloidal silver typically about a teaspoon three to six times a day can be a very very effective flu buster number two is garlic now garlic contains a compound called allicin which is actually an antiviral now have you ever bitten into garlic and you felt that literally a burning sensation that's that compound Allison mixed with sulfur which actually kills off pathogenic microbes which can be causing that bug that's causing you to have those flu-like symptoms garlic targets it and kills it off so garlic again very very powerful for Allison so whether your flu is causing a sore throat vomiting diarrhea ear infection or any other type of viral symptom coming hot or cold garlic works very effectively what I would do is take some raw garlic crunch it up in your mouth and swallow it with a little bit of apple cider vinegar and water and honey it's a great natural treatment there as well number three thing you can do is oregano oil now oregano oil also known as oil of oregano Oh is probably the most powerful thing on this list when it comes to acting as a natural antibiotic now often times when people have the flu or cold what they'll do is they'll go to their conventional medical doctor they'll prescribe a synthetic antibiotic medication the problem there is that it not only kills the bad bacteria it kills the good bacteria in your gut in all of your probiotics oil of oregano on the other hand is more selective and then it kills more of the bad bacteria not as much as the good and so you're not going to have as many side effects and here's the truth according to medical research and studies oil of oregano is just effective if not more effective at treating a flu in a cold than other conventional antibiotics so oil of oregano is the key or I would call it the king of essential oils as a natural antibiotic and essential oils can be so beneficial oregano the best for killing a flu very very quickly and by the way if you have personally benefited from one of these whether it's silver or garlic or oregano hey take a minute right now and post that here online let me know what you've personally seen work for you at getting rid of the flu fast now number four here is cinnamon oil here's a great benefit of cinnamon oil it helps warm the body did you know most often when somebody comes down with the flu or often a cold in fact the reason they call it a cold is in Chinese medicine your body would become damp and cold when you have the flu so we need to warm your body and dry think about all the mucous production your body that means your damp okay similar thing if you're getting hot and cold and hot and cold your body is raising your temperature if you have a fever right now or if you know someone has a flu it raises your body's temperature naturally because it's trying to get rid of the flu virus here's the great thing cinnamon itself is a warming herb that can help you get rid of the flu it's also great for balancing hormones stabilizing those insulin levels but cinnamon oil just a single drop two to three times daily with some food can be beneficial getting rid of the flu another big one here is eucalyptus oil eucalyptus well works by improving circulation and actually expelling excess mucus from your body and actually has very powerful antiviral properties this is a medicine that's used often in Australia and eucalyptus oil eucalyptus oil rather than taking internally what you want to do is swish it around and garlic gargle with it so you can do some sea salt a little bit of warm or hot water several drops of eucalyptus oil you're going to gargle with that deeply and spit it out do that multiple times a day or put eucalyptus oil in a diffuser breathe it in or put it in some hot water and simply take deep breaths in and out but eucalyptus is great for opening up the lungs expelling and killing off viruses that are residing in your body specifically in your lung tissue number six here is elderberry now elderberry is powerful because it is one of the most vitamin C rich superfoods in the world it also contains specific antioxidants that actually can fight viruses as well but elderberry vitamin C itself actually helps support the body and fighting off viruses so elderberry gives your body the nutrients it needs like vitamin C to naturally fight off the flu fast number seven here is zinc you know zinc is powerful as well you know zinc specifically is known as your immune mineral so vitamin C is known as the vitamin for the immune system zinc is known as the mineral for the immune system and zinc is beneficial for so many things from athletic recovery getting rid of acne healing leaky gut but especially getting rid of viruses if you need to boost your immune system which you do if you have a cold or a flu specifically you've got to get vitamin C you've got to get zinc and the next thing you need to get here as well is vitamin D so vitamin D is crucial vitamin D isn't just a vitamin it's a prohormone and it's a natural immune booster here's an incredible thing I read in a research study they said when you consume vitamin D whether you're out in the Sun and getting direct sunlight which is the best or you're taking vitamin D in a capsule form as a supplement vitamin D your body starts producing over 200 antimicrobials and antivirals to kill it off so with vitamin D I would be getting about 5,000 IU's two to four times daily so anywhere from ten to twenty thousand plus IU's daily if you have a flu but I would probably do 20,000 IU's 10,000 IU's twice a day if you have a flu and with zinc I would do thirty milligrams two to four times a day of zinc to bust a cold or flu fast and the number nine here is steam now if you have an infrared sauna that's great or if you can get in a hot shower what I would do is I would take some of that eucalyptus oil I would also take some of that some of the other essential oils we talked about such as cinnamon I would do cinnamon eucalyptus with coconut oil rub it on the chest go get in the shower and take deep breaths in and out or if you have a steam shower but steam helps raise your body temperature remember the reason why you get a fever yourself or your child as a fever if they have a flu is because your body itself is trying to raise its temperature to kill off that viruses viruses die under heat the good news is by using things like cinnamon oil drinking warm bone broth tea or being in a steam shower those things are naturally raising your own body's temperature helping your body kill off the virus even faster than it's causing your flu-like symptoms also I want to mention this ideally when you have the flu you want to be hydrating yourself the best diet to follow if you have a flu is going to be drinking lots of herbal teas and bone broth throughout the day so bone broth is actually high in potassium and sodium both of those electrolytes also herbal teas like chamomile can help calm the stomach but I would drink herbal teas and drink bone broth soup like a bone broth chicken soup and that's how you should be hydrating yourself that's what you should be doing that's what your diet should like when you're suffering with a cold or flu so guys remember these nine steps and tips to overcome a flu fast number one use colloidal silver I would do a teaspoon five to six times a day garlic okay crunch and bite down on that Allah just whether you throw it in a meal in a soup or just bite it or swallow it raw a great thing to do oregano oil a couple drops fry three drops three times a day cinnamon oil similar thing eucalyptus oil remember rub it on your chest breathe in inhale it or gargle it with some what some hot warm water and sea salt elderberry extract I would do a black elderberry syrup a tablespoon five to six times a day zinc thirty milligrams two to four times a day vitamin D 5,000 IU's four times a day and get your body warm with steam shower infrared sauna these things will help you kick a flu really fast and by the way if you've benefited from any one of these things when you were sick hey post that right now online I'd love to see from you or if I miss something that you think can help beat a flu let me know that right now on the next time I cover a cold or flu I may include one of your topics as part of our broadcast here as well and remember there are a lot of people today who are struggling with immune system issues like a cold and flu and they

  16. Oil of oregano has proven to me time and time again to quickly get rid of chesty coughs/flu

  17. I will try t try this been sick with flue 2 weeks ty for sharing

  18. The eucalyptus oil & steam can really help, Zinc too.

  19. We drink tea made from cinnamon.

  20. A probiotic, as soon as the sickness hits. Oregano oil on the bottom of my feet. And you mentioned black elderberry syrup. I used that too. I now made my own elderberry syrup.

  21. This has been a horrible flu season in February 2019. I brought many supplements into this, had elderberry syrup, colloidal silver, zine, ecanacia tea, but what helped me most of all was the oil of oregano that I had taken. The oregano oil completely cleared up my ears and my lungs, bronchitis, so I ended up feeling much better afterwards but it lingered for a couple weeks.

  22. Oil of oregano and grape leaf TINCHURES take all these remedies a level further. I use a dropper of each with honey, vinegar, red hot pepper, fresh ginger and raw garlic. Lemon works too. Do it AS SOON as you feel it coming on! The sooner the better.

  23. Shared this with a very sick person

  24. You are the man Josh. Thanks.

  25. Dealing with flu now using colloidal silver and gargled with a couple drops of oregano in water…totally knocked my sore throat out! Also for a cough used a drop each of peppermint, lemon, lavender and ginger essential oils in a tablespoon of honey! Really works!

  26. Oregano Oil. Do you put it on your tongue? Should I dilute it too?

  27. Honey, pomegranate, limes ,onions, green tea ๐Ÿต,๐Ÿ sider vinegar are very helpful…get well soon!๐Ÿ™๐ŸปโœŒ๏ธ

  28. i got the flu last thursday, i felt better the following monday and tried going to the gym, but almost passed out within the first half hour. Rest for at least two weeks after the flu.

  29. I personally would add Mustard oil which has nothing to with the mustard on your hotdog. It comes from

    Nasturtium and horseradish and it is a very powerful remedy especially in the onset of the flu. its antibiotic properties are very powerful and totally underrated in fact research has shown that it even kills the bacteria and viruses traditional prescribed antibiotics have been useless because of resistance. Big pharma does not like the fact that this 2 together are so much more effective, but not having the bad side effects of chemical antibiotics. there is plenty of research but they are not publishing it well. Do your own research. Anyway, I personally take by the first symptoms of flu these mustard oils, in Europe they sale it under the name ANGOCIN 3 times 5 tablets 1 capsule of wild Oregano oil but be very careful when swallowing this oil is so concentrated it burns like hell when it touches your mouth worse than chilly. So be super careful when you fill your own capsules. Also make sure you use the real oregano essential oil Origanum vulgare I put 12 drops in a big capsule and best taken with food. (donโ€™t bite on it when you swallow it) it will burn like 100 chilies. At last taking a CDS Solution 20 drops (chlorine dioxide) has nothing to with bleach chlor. please research! It is the solution of the MMS from Jim Humble ready to use and no need to mix the two components that could actually be a bit harsh on the stomach. I recommend to take it early in the morning on empty stomach or at least 2 hours before and after food intake. Colloidal silver is a must have and must take in any way of flu symptoms. I usually get flu free within 48 hours complete and feel alleviation already after the first dosage of the 4 remedies within 8 hours. that's my take but please feel free to research first on your own. Btw I have not seen a doctor in over 30 years and not taking antibiotics in the last 25 years. I read a lot on medical research and herbal medicine since I fight for 30 years Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) and thanks god I still walk straight and not crippled.

    So I wish you all the best out there, do your research and donโ€™t be fooled by all these medicine promises, God had made a garden of Eden so learn how to use it. There is so much hidden treasures to explore. God bless you all.

  30. DOES SILVER COMES OUT OF YOUR BODY? I heard it doesn't and some people turned blue taking it too much and stayed blue skin forever.

  31. Oil of oregano , ginger shots (by Rescue), vitamin c, hot tea and eucalyptus oil in a vaporizer knocks it out in 24 to 48 hours. I tried bone broth today. Nice.

  32. I love oregano oil!!!

  33. Josh, great post. Another great way to bring up your core temperature is a hot water bottle held against your chest while sleeping or resting. This goes right to your heart and warms up your whole circulatory system. Magic.

  34. Bruh acerola cherry, elderberry must have another benefical active ingredient, because it's vitamin c doesn't seem high at least in the brand I bought? also oregano extract and mushrooms boost the body temperature like wow.

  35. Awesome dude!

  36. You mentioned apple cider before

  37. Dr.Axe you are Right On with all your suggestions! Harvard Medical School Newsletter said to lie on your side and fill ear canal with hydrogen peroxide and wait 20 min or until bubbles stop. Will clear plugged nostril on that side then turn over and do other ear canal. Harvard said infection moves from ear canals to sinus, lungs throat, and gut. Harvard said all relapses come from infectious agents hiding in ear canals. Hydrogen peroxide is Fast to stop Flu and cold and Strep infections. My Dad was taught hydrogen peroxide in ears every night prevented infections and before antibiotics were pushed, Medical Students were taught peroxide treatment of ears is like brushing teeth– should be done regularly. If no infectious agents are present in your ears they don't bubble or tickle when you put hydrogen peroxide into canal.. Just feels like water. If you are getting sick, will bubble like crazy!

  38. my grandma told me to boil oregano when i am sick does boiling oregano work as good as the oil?

  39. Omg garlic kills everything for me!!!!!

  40. What to substitute bone broth I dont eat meat.
