Paleo remedy for cold/flu alongside fasting?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 23, 2013 at 11:40 AM

Its been a late winter here in the UK, it should be spring but its snowing, i haven't had a cold for years but this weekend i've been struck with the nastiest one ive ever had

I can barely move so number one is staying in bed as my body is telling me to rest rest rest, im also going to fast as ive read so much about the benefits of fasting for all kinds of disease, even though im fasting are there any compliments i should be taking apart from lots of water?

Maybe coconut oil? Lemon Juice?

Thanks in advance for any advice, i'm one sick puppy right now!

Vitamin D mega dose. I can't remember the exact number, but it works for us every time.

Cook up some bone broth, and sip on it or make some soup with it. That always has me feeling better.

If it's warm enough outside, spend a little time in the sun (natural vitamin D!)

Oranges or grapefruit taste especially good to me when I'm sick, and are a good source of vitamin C.

If you are feeling up to it, eggs and avocado are easy on the stomach and delicious.

Feed a cold, anything. Eating boosts certain cold fighting immune cells.

is it an actual flu or a stomach bug..? I just had a 24 hour bug - weirdest thing ever. I got ill and vomitted then the next day i was so weak and exhausted and extremely thirsty too. I didnt feel like eating and just drank tonnes of water with lemon and crushed ginger. I rested and slept that entire day and next day i was fine. Hope you feel better. I would say eat if you feel like it-listen to your body. But dont force yourself though. If youre feeling nauseated just keep hydrated. Try ginger-lemon-dash of salt solution in water. Feel better soon- :)
