A friend just forwarded an e-mail with the following natural remedy for flu (note: Original author please contact me so that I can credit you for the article).
A fast non-drug remedy for flu:
Before onset of flu, and while experiencing pre-flu symptoms like headache, running nose & sneezing, drink 2 to 3 cups of hot water. Wait for 3 to 5 minutes, then drink a cup of hot coffee. You would want to urinate in 2 to 3 minutes. Surprisingly after that, all flu symptoms will disappear. Coffee is a diuretic. It removes water from the body, and in the process, flushes out all the virus trapped inside the body.
If anyone has tried this and found that it works, please…let’s hear from you!
