The first thing you should do is avoiding this disease as much as possible, because once you get it, it will be difficult to get rid of it. There are many ways to prevent this disease but the most important and easiest way to do is being careful about oral health. You can gargle with sage tea to keep your mouth clean and fresh in addition to brushing your teeth. Boil a bunch of sage within a cup of water for 10 minutes and let the tea cool before gargling.
Another way to do that is getting enough vitamin C. You can take a great amount of vitamin C with citrus fruits. If you notice, flu and cold are generally seen in winter or autumn and nature gives citrus fruits in these seasons, just at the right time we need. Broccoli is also a good source of vitamin C.
Another important thing, flu and cold can be spread through the air so lavender, which is antibacterial (for bacteria) and antiviral (for viruses), might come in handy. Boiling lavender is protecting you from harmful bacteria and viruses while its sweet scent making your living environment comfortable. You can boil a bunch of lavender in 2 cups of water and then put the cure wherever you want. While it evaporates, it disinfects the air and makes it fresh. You can repeat that 2 times a day.
Also, it is important to keep your immune system alive and alert. You must stay away from fried foods, all of them. Fried foods make your liver tired, they are difficult to digest and weaken the immune system. Another thing; try to avoid being in closed areas because viruses and bacteria can spread easily in such places. Another winter fruit comes right on time; nature never produce garbage, do not ever toss pomegranate peel out because it is a great source to prevent cold and flu and protect your immune system.
