Grandmother’s tips for the flu

Granny knows

Having a cold or the flu? Grandma knows what to do. Your A.Vogel flu coach Krista has put the best tips together. Please see the “flu tips” below from our grandmother’s days.

Good luck,

Krista, your A.Vogel Flu Coach

 

Granny’s flu tip 1: Cut an onion

One of the granny's most useful tips for nasal congestion. Cut an onion in half, and place it on a plate next to your bed. I bet more air is going through that nose! 

Flu tip 2: Ginger tea

Ginger tea gives warmth and is soothing for the throat. Ginger is traditionally used to support digestion and deal with nausea and tummy aches.

Granny’s flu tip 3: Chicken stock or soup

Indispensable if you have the flu...a hearty, healthy chicken soup. The steam that rises from the soup alleviates nasal congestion. The stock answers the body's liquid and salt requirements. Very nice. We may not realise it, but we do lose a lot of liquid when we have a fever.

Grandmother’s 4th flu tip: Gargle with sea salt and sage

Maybe your throat needs a little soothing? Try gargling with salt and sage: pour boiling water in a glass with 2 teaspoons of dried sage and half a teaspoon of sea salt. Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes. Then strain the sage out of the water and gargle a few times during the day.

And flu tip 5: Water with lemon juice

An orange for the much needed vitamin C is good. Lemon is better. The yellow fruit supports the liver. Not everyone, however, enjoys eating it by itself. You better squeeze the juice in a glass of water or add a slice to your tea.
