This article is going to be a series of tips and advises on how to recover from influenza (flu ).

Personally I have already recovered from a severe flu that affected my family and me .

I am not a doctor myself,but I feel that my experience has reached such a level so that it makes me feel sure enough to provide people with health tips.

This experience is a fruitful outcome and combination of various medications used in my country ,Greece.

Many of these medications happen to be health tips applied in the province by old women who represent the practical healers in small, rural areas away from big cities.

Influenza has been an pandemic now-days and affects thousands of people,including citizens in my country Greece.

However ,this disease has not been a new one in our world;actually,we've been suffering from flu almost in winter,but also on Spring and Autumn.

And we've been suffering over centuries in periods where no medicine was discovered by doctors .

The disease is quite different than cold and it is a respiratory illness.

It is caused by a virus that uses a code, a genetic information that is released upon cells.

Like many virus or all of them as soon as it uses the bloodstream an inflammation takes place in the human body.

Drink a lot of water,juices and hot tea

Water is an immediate means to cleanse the infected body and get rid of toxins.

Hot tea also helps the body and relieves congestion,soothes the throat and sustains body in order not to get dehydrated.

Juices especially the orange juice supports the human organisation with Vitamin C

Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables give an extra support and balance on the human body and refines blood during flu infection.

The vegetables could be more beneficial when related or combined with chicken soup.

Saltwater gargle

In Greece,old people use a lot a certain remedy that relieves the sore throat.

Salt water with lemon gargle twice a day is a great remedy.

Put a little clear water in a small glass.

Add a bit of salt and two spoon lemon.

Mix them and use this cocktail for gargling .


Nature remedies

Many herbals are useful to offer relief to flu symptoms and protect human body from severe complications.

Eucalyptus could be used for inhaling and it's the perfect herb for athma and rinitis.

Ehinachea to use it for defense against cold and flu

Chamomile for stomachaches, headaches and vomiting
