 Cure for the flu

there is no cure for the flu!

but, you can remedy the symptoms. as mentioned above, drink plenty of fluids and stay warm. not too warm though, or it will make you uncomfortable. the best meds i found are Theraflu, Tylenol Flu and Cold, i think its called, and Nyquil/Dayquil. those work the best for me. and sleep!!

Mama42, didnt god say like "Thus not posion thee soul with drugs of Satan" or something? Lmao, kidding ofcourse.

Yeah try and keep warm and drink alot of fluids. I always drink orange juice when I have the flue. My mom use to always wrap me up in a tight blanket to have me sweat it out.

Feel better. :D

 Cure for the flu

Just dang, Mike! :^)

But relly, warm is the key. Flu is viral. Your body develops a fever in an attempt to kill it. I remember a nasty flu as a kid.....(Yeah I know, I had been outside, chipping out a stone wheel...yeah, that was me that invented that) My Mom feed me Hot chicken soup, aspirin, and covered me in a couple blankets. Man, did I get WARM! but in a short time, that extra heat helped kill it and I was on the mend. I do the same now, anytime I get the flu, which is not often.

I think it is scared to come visit me.

 Cure for the flu

i’ve only had the flu one time in my life and it was last year. i thought i was literally dying!! i don’t know how you’re even at the computer. i am a smoker and i didn’t even smoke for 2 days because i was in bed, lol! my doctor told me for the fever and aches to take tylenol, 2 hours later take aspirin, 2 hours later take tylenol and just keep repeating. the directions on these say take every 4 hours, so technically you are taking each one every 4 hours but you have something in your system every 2. it helped me out a lot. good luck

 Cure for the flu

Take Goldenseal. It doesn’t do anything about the virus itself, but what it does do is harden your snot, so it isn’t running out all day or dribbling down your throat and choking you. I used to get very, very sick every winter. Breathing cold air is sort of my Achilles heel, healthwise. A year or two ago I discovered Goldenseal, and I’ve been fine ever since. During any "danger" seasons, I take two tablets a day, and that lets my body’s natural filtration system do the rest.

If you’re really clogged right now, you’ll also want an expectorant to force some of that stuff out. I suggest Tussin. If all you’re getting is the dribbles, then Goldenseal alone will do the job, but there are two other things that help. One is Claritin. The other, less obvious thing, is Neopsporin. Constantly wiping your nose chafes the skin, and having chafed nostril rims causes your nose to keep running, to keep the skin from drying out and cracking. Rubbing a little bit of ointment on and trying to keep it there will stop that reflex. Meanwhile, the Goldenseal will turn the contents of your nose into a solid, rather than a liquid.
