Dr.s will tell you this is not true, but I don't take their word for it.
I use common sense and my own experiences to teach me the truth.
Below, I have posted a FANTASTIC Natural Flu Shot recipe that is new to me. At first I didn't know if it worked, or not, but it sounded like a good one! Trust me, it WORKS!
Hopefully you will never have to try it...but if you do....here it is.....
Over the last few days, (against my better judgement about going to the store to pick up very important non-related prescriptions that were very much needed and almost a must), I again picked up another yucky Flu virus from those who I ran into and they were coughing all over me!! Uggggg! (figures)
Yes, the news on TV for weeks have warned people everyday that this year the U.S. is having an epidemic of flu viruses on the rampage which are killing even healthy middle age people and children.
Age groups that are not known normally to die from these dangerous viruses!! Yikes!
I took my chances in public, and why am I not surprised that I caught the Flu again.
This time I was aware of the possibility and prepared of what I was experiencing or what to look for.... and so was much more ready to fight!!
So, this is what happened.
I first felt a bit of a soreness in my sinuses, a day after my day around sick people. So, I immediately used my 'Netti pot' to flush out my sinuses with saline water. That helped.
The next day came a bit of achiness, so I knew that I was brewing something!!
I came back to my own advice online and found several things that appeared to be good recipes to fight the flu. But which one?!?!
One in particular stood out that I had never tried before and so I was willing to give it a 'shot' (play on words) since I was curious if it worked and now was my chance to test it out. THE SOONER THE BETTER!
The Natural Flu Shot! (posted below)
I had all the ingredients at home. (most people do) However, it is also easy to substitute these things for similar stuff. Trust me, as long as you have the main gest of it...it will work. It only take a minute to whip up. (Easy Peasy)
It calls for 3 cups of Pineapple juice. (Make sure it is the REAL stuff...not sugar flavored juice) I had a big can of Pineapple tidbits on hand (without sugar) and I just opened it and poured it in the blender.
It asks for dry ginger. I happen to have a small fresh nub of Ginger root so I threw it in the blender. (I could easily used my ginger in a squeeze bottle that I have)
It asks for garlic.
You can use dry, diced in a jar, or peeled fresh, just don't use garlic salt in your cooking shelve (not quite the same thing). I always powdered and have a jar of diced garlic in the fridge, so it was easy to throw in a small spoonful into the blender.
It calls for 6 lemons juiced. Fresh is always better, but hey just use 3/4 C. of your all ready made lemon juice in a bottle, which should always be in your fridge, anyway. If not, go buy it at the store. No need to buy and juice lemons since they are expensive and time consuming.
(This is a MUST ingredient or juice in a bottle, for any kitchen for home remedies period!!)
The honey and cayenne is self explanatory.
Mix all together.
Turn on the blender for 5 minutes and let it all blend very well.
Because I threw in a can of pineapple, liquid and all, I had to strain this blended recipe once it was done blending.
I just used a metal strainer I had on hand.
I could have easily just drank it just like it was, but, I decided to strained it.
At first I thought this might taste bad, but when I tried it, it was very nice. Easy to drink.
It says take 'a cup of this' 4 times a day but I just take a small juice glass of it, whenever. About every 3-4 hours.
I even add a bit of water to my glass after I pour about 1/2 cup of Natures Flu shots, in my glass. It is watered down, but I am still taking it, right?
I like this, since that way I am making sure to get my plenty of water fluids at the same time.
OK, here comes the kicker!
After an hour of taking this concoction I found that I was feeling MUCH better. NO WAY!! How cool is that?
So, I thought that I would know better throughout the night since night time is when most people (myself) feel much worse when fighting a virus.
Low and Behold!
I felt MUCH better throughout the night! Yes, I have normally have very difficult nights sleeping anyway, due to my chronic back pain, but hey....the flu was NOT effecting me!! Wow!
It was as though the flu was leaving my body and quick!!
Seriously....it was amazing. I did notice that after so many hours after taking these 'Flu shots' I could tell every time that I had to keep up the shots....that it was time to take more...but it is kicking this Flu bug in the BUTT !!!
(and FAST) 😄
I am pleasantly surprised, but really I should not be, since I am a BIG FAN of doing and keeping things as natural as possible.
I am just SUPER grateful that this worked well, (didn't taste bad) and that I was able to catch it fast !
This awesome recipe fights a very NASTY bug that has the potential to kill. 😱
