Easy Home Remedies For Cold & Flu Season

January 19, 2014

Feel like you’re catching a cold, and can’t get in to see the acupuncturist right away? While I have many herbs and acupuncture treatments that will work powerfully to kick that cold out of your system, here are a few home remedies that may help to calm down the flu until you can get in for a full treatment:


Sore Throat and Cough Protection:


Slice up 1-2 Pears (Asian Pears work best, but bartletts will do just fine)

mix with a few slices of fresh ginger

steam the fruit for 5-10 minutes

mix with 1 tablespoon of honey (and take out any large chunks of ginger)

Eat the fruit 2-3 times per day to improve throat and lung health



Common Cold Relief:

Symptoms including: itchy throat, body chills (more chills than a fever, not much sweating), body aches/headaches, thin/watery clear mucus, runny nose, sneezing



3 tablespoons of cinnamon

1 piece of green onion/scallion/spring onion (chopped)

3 slices of licorice root (dried)

3-5 slices of fresh ginger


simmer all the ingredients in 2 1/2 cups of water for about 20 minutes.

Strain, and drink the liquid as tea.

I teaspoon of honey may be added for flavor
