NATURAL DIY REMEDIES – PART 1

Criz’s Sanctuary

With the sudden change of weather, quite a large number of people are having some sort of flu symptoms, namely cough, cold, sore throat and dizziness. Thus, most people will just pay a visit to the doctor for treatments. The medication provided may contain antibiotics for speedy recovery. Sometimes, with a heavy schedule, we tend to forget to consume the prescribed medication. This will result in boosting the viral infection to be immune to the medication in future.

What is the next best precaution against this problem? Well, natural products are the best as it does not contain any chemical compounds. Here are some of the few recipes that have been taught to me by an older generation. Maybe by sharing these simple recipes, it might be of some use to you.

PREVENTION OF FLU (WHERE THERE ARE SIGNS OF FLU)

Slice one yellow pear. Add 2 bowl of water and some rock sugar. Bring to boil until it becomes a bowl. Add some lemon juice before drinking.

NATURAL CURE FOR FLU

Slice 25g ginger and one yellow pear. Add one bowl of water. Bring to boil, then lower the fire and boil until left half bowl. Consume while hot.

or

Pour 50 -100cc of red wine into a pot. Bring to boil. Add in one egg and stir. Drink when it cools down.

NATURAL CURE FOR DRY COUGH

Remove the seed of 2 pears. Add in some rock sugar in the pear. Double boil. Consume the pear and the liquid.

LONG TIME COUGH (SOMETIMES KNOWN AS 100-DAYS COUGH)

One carrot, 12 red dates. Add in 3 bowls of water. Boil with slow fire until left one bowl. Drink 3 tablespoon, 3 times a day for 4 days.

SORE THROAT
Note: Whenever there is any sign of an ulcer, stir one teaspoon of kitchen salt with half a glass of warm water. Gaggle the throat with the mixture at least twice a day.

Brew a cup of green tea. Add in honey when cool. Slowly drink. Drink a few times until the sore throat recovers.

or

For flu related sore throat: Blend 50 green beans. Add in a glass of water, some rock sugar and tea leaves (preferably Chinese or Green Tea leaves). Brew for 15 minutes. Drink until the sore throat recovers.

NOTE:
This is just some alternative suggestions to the above illness. If the sickness became worst, please visit a doctor immediately. The author is not responsible for any outcome that may arise from any other complications.
