Hi, I have managed to the the flu off my little darlings I teach. I don't like taking any synthetic drugs but was wondering if anyone had some paelo friendly remedies they use.

Thanks in advance.

Some high grade manuka honey is a gem to have in the medicine cabinet. A teaspoon in the morning may help relieve some symptoms and kill off bacteria. Love me a warm cup of freshly sqeezed lemon, ginger and honey as well on those mornings when nothing seems to be functioning.

Chicken soup with garlic, onion and carrots. Make sure to use the whole chicken.

Lots of Ginger in tea or soup and raw garlic with meals. Vitamin C never hurts.

Being on a paleo diet tends to prevent most colds. I've gotten no worse than just feeling a bit tired, and sleepy to just a sore throat for a few hours, never a full blown flu.

If you do get bit by a viral infection, you might want to try some elderberry extract (sambucus) as it's a potent anti-viral. You can find it as both pills (dried herb), or syrup (useful for sore throats).

Sometimes, people get infected by bacteria that have the same symptoms as a flu, but it turns out to be bacterial - typically happens with smokers, and then they infect others in the office. For those, regular coconut oil consumption will give you some immunity, though stuff like oregano oil can help a lot more if used correctly. (i.e. a couple of drops in melted coconut used to gargle a sore throat.)
