Chandler Wellness Care: FLU BE GONE

FLU BE GONE! Natural Alternative Remedies for Flu

Flu and flu-like viruses have pounded us this season, and the CDC agrees. It’s even hit my family hard.

High fevers, chills, headache and body aches, nasal and sinus congestion, sore throat, cough, OH MY!

The works!

Tips from Dr. Khayriyyah Chandler, D.O., integrative family physician at Chandler Wellness Care in downtown Haddonfield:

1. Umcka (pelargonium) – decreases sore throat, cough, and respiratory tract symptoms,

shortens duration of symptoms

2. Zinc spray or lozenges – help fight viruses, decreases duration of symptoms when used at the onest

3. Oscillococcinum – helps to relieve flu like symptoms, especially body aches

4. Thieves (or similar) oil blend – helps cough, congestion, and opens the sinuses

5. Nasal sprays – saline, xylitol, eucalyptus, capsaicin, or blends to help with congestion

6. Foods:

a. Cold: pineapple (juice or fruit) and honey – cough and sore throat

b. Hot: Chicken broth, bone broth, miso soup, and multiple teas

7. Sleep, Rest, and Lots of fluids
