Legends Report Health Special: Facing the Flu Season
By Sukh Singh, Mentorship Coach & Lighthouse International Associate
According to reports, Britain is seeing the worst flu season its faced in 7 years. In the USA as well, they are facing a horrible season and sadly children and the elderly are most vulnerable to the flu. Many children have already lost their lives - and dozens of adults too, many of whom were fit and healthy.
It is dangerous and easy to think this can only happen to someone else... recently 18-year-old Bethany Walker suffered pneumonia and lost her life after contracting a strain of the flu. This is why we are sharing this special report with you to provide you with some insights to do what you can to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy and safe.
Here are four incredibly powerful and impactful natural remedies that you can get online or in your nearest health store to help you during this season and in fact throughout the year...
1. Immune System Booster and Prevention: Allicin
This extract from garlic can be used as a preventative supplement as well as a response to any cold or flu symptoms. As the video above mentions, it can even tackle a deadly bug found more recently in hospitals known as MRSA. This is an amazing discovery and you can get it easily online.
For more info on the benefits of Allicin, check out this LIVESTRONG article.
2. Alakining Your Body: Apple Cider Vinegar
"Creating an alkaline environment helps kill bacteria and viruses. Start drinking it at the first sign of illness and repeat several times a day until the symptoms subside."
- Fox News
Our bodies usually, as a result of our diets, have too much acidity in it. Basically, too much acid = not enough oxygen = an unhealthy immune system. Apple Cider Vinegar is a great natural resource to counter that. If you are especially hit by a cold or flu, try taking a small shot of pure Apple Cider Vinegar.
PS - Be sure to get organic ACV that contains a vital ingredient known as 'the mother'. Here's a quick link to help you find what you need.
3. Anti-Inflammatory: Turmeric and Redbush Tea
You may know turmeric as a common ingredient in curries, but the powder itself can seriously help you stay healthy! Here is what LIVESTRONG has to say about it...
"Curcumin [the key ingredient of turmeric] possesses strong antiviral properties that have a direct effect on influenza [flu] infections, or their prevention. According to a study published in a 2009 edition of “Emerging Infectious Diseases,” curcumin can reduce viral replication by over 90 percent in laboratory cells infected with influenza varieties. Curcumin decreased viral replication in infected cells, but also seemed to protect other cells from becoming infected. The researchers suggest that curcumin-rich turmeric is a viable candidate for treating influenza naturally, as it can interfere with the replication process in viruses and other microbes."
Here is a fantastic recipe to optimise the effect turmeric can have on your immune system... just by adding a bit of pepper and lemon!
If you don't have any turmeric handy or aren't sure where to get it, a much more common cure is Rebush or Rooibos Tea. A South African leaf, here is what California Tea House has to say about it for keeping a healthy body...
"The tea has a high level of disease-fighting antioxidants and is caffeine-free, so you can drink a cup or two to ease your symptoms without needing to worry about losing sleep (source). Additionally, this soothing tea has bronchodilator and anti-inflammatory qualities, making it a great choice to provide some relief to anyone suffering from an upper respiratory infection (source). Of course, anyone with a cold or suspected case of the flu should go to their doctor for treatment right away, but a cup of rooibos tea can certainly help you suffer less in the hours leading up to your appointment."
4. Energising and Restoring the System: Magnesium
"Magnesium helps to control hundreds of chemical reactions in the body. It also helps regulate blood pressure, strengthen muscles and bones, keeps the immune system strong and supports cardiac and brain function.
While too much magnesium is rare, too little magnesium in the body can interfere and or decrease the functioning of the systems and organs we need to work smoothly –namely the heart, brain, musculoskeletal, digestive and circulatory systems. Low magnesium levels can manifest itself in any number of unexpected ways, contributing to muscle cramps, PMS, memory problems, heart irregularities, asthma, allergies and diabetes. - Dr. Frank Lipman, BeWell.com"
This vital ingredient is best absorbed through the skin. And you can get it in the form of an oil you can spray on your skin, or a body cream. If you'd prefer, you can also find it as a powder to take with water. Here's a link to some of the oils available.
Whatever You Use, Make Your Health a Priority!
