Home Remedies for the Seasonal Flu

Hydrogen Peroxide in Bath Water

The following is a partial and updated reprint from the 2008 edition of the Journal of Immunity. The H2O2  treatment in bath water has worked effectively for measles, chicken pox, influenza and numerous other conditions when a systemic infection is present. ONE TREATMENT IS USUALLY ALL THAT IS NEEDED. 

Go to the store and buy 12 pint bottles of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. Fill a bathtub full of hot water. Add all 12 pints to the water. Stir and get in. Use a watch. Sit in the water for 20 minutes. Get out and dry off. You are done. Now go rest and drink plenty of liquids. The hydrogen peroxide in small amounts is absorbed through the skin into the blood stream where it kills off viruses and bacteria and other pathogens.

I have talked to many people where this one treatment has eliminated various serious chronic conditions. This treatment is powerful and turns on the immune system. The treatment can be repeated once every two days if needed. If your problem is not gone after two treatments, you need to see a health care professional.

Notice: Anyone with an organ transplant should not use this treatment as it could lead to an organ rejection. Anyone with a pacemaker should check with their physician.

Optional – Oral Use of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)

One teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide (drug store variety) in a glass of water taken once every 4 hours. Use on an empty stomach only. Repeat up to 4 times a day. Be sure to consult with your doctor and have him monitor your use of hydrogen peroxide and other home remedies.

Del-Immune V and Beta Glucan

A highly effective product for colds and flus made from Lactobacillus Rhamnosus (broken cell wall or Lysated). The cell walls of L. Rhamnosus instantly turn on the immune system. Del-immune.com Beta glucan is also used to activate the macrophages, a type of white blood cell that engulfs bacteria and viruses. Del-immune reduces the duration of a cold and flu.

Safe Flu Remedies

Many of the remedies listed for the common cold also work for the flu. Fasting is imperative for recovery from the Flu. Rest and drink lots of water.  Eating the wrong foods will prolong the flu. Avoid all milk products and all wheat products. Eat only if hungry.

Consider raw onions on rye crisp or raw garlic on rye crisp, sauerkraut, chicken rice soup, Wakame in chicken broth, Leek soup. If body temperature is low, use an electric blanket.

2. Stop eating – let yourself go hungry.

Chest infections/pneumonia

Sees-2000 (one capsule every 4 hours) or LDM-100 – roots of lomatium dissectum extract (20 drops in water once every 4 hours)

Pleurisy root tea – drink for chest pain and congestion. – reduces water in the chest area.

Raw garlic or garlic oil ointment over chest area. Inhale the aroma of fresh garlic cloves to clear the sinuses and lungs.

Avoid immunosuppressive treatments like Aspirin for the Flu

Aspirin should be used only if the fever is really high (103° F or higher). When you lower a fever you are also suppressing the immune response. Of the dozens of remedies for the cold and flu that are advertised, most relieve symptoms but also suppress the immune response. If a fever is broken by suppressing the immune response ( e.g. aspirin etc), that is bad as it will lengthen the time for recovery. If the fever if broken because the treatment kills the infection, that is a good treatment since it gets to the cause of the problem and is not just a palliative. This is why hydrogen peroxide, ozone, neem and garlic are so effective as treatments for various infections including colds and the flu.

Remedies for Clogged Sinuses

Here are a few personal tidbits for clogged sinuses –

Peppermint oil. It works fast and can be used as often as you need it. Buy a one ounce bottle and open it directly under your nostrils and inhale deeply.

Lemon juice – fresh squeezed – mix half and half with water. Use a dropper and with your head back, place several dropperfuls into your nostrils. Inhale until it comes out of the back of your throat.

Salt water – add one-half tsp of sea salt to 1/4 cup of warm water and use this as a nasal wash as you would the lemon juice. Salt water can also be used as a gargle.

Garlic clove aromatherapy – take a fresh clove of garlic and poke it with a fork – place it close to your nostrils and inhale deeply. Garlic odor kills most viruses and bacteria on contact.

Eucalyptus oil – spray some on your pillow before going to bed to keep your sinuses open while you sleep.

Inhalation therapy with steam -Bring a pan of water to a boil. Shut off heat and place a towel over your head and place your head over the pan of steaming water. Add a few drops of Vicks Vaporub or Eucalyptus oil to the hot water and inhale deeply.

For asthma, bronchitis, wheezing

Magnets; Wheezing and tight bronchial tubes caused by allergies or inflammation can be relaxed by placing the north pole of a magnet over the bronchial tube area, between the base of the throat and the heart.

Wild cherry bark tea – relaxes bronchial tubes

Guaifenesin – expectorant.

On a personal Note

C LeBeau. I have a sensitivity to milk products and almost a food addiction to them (cheese and ice cream) so I can rarely avoid them completely for more than 4 or 5 days. Then when my guard is down, I eat more and it weakens my humoral TH2 defenses and I get a cold or sinus infection. I can tell you from personal experience that I have tried every cold remedy listed here and they all work, some better than others. Depending on the severity of the cold, you may need to try several remedies at once to get satisfactory results.
