7 Natural Ways To Avoid the Flu

avoid the flu

Need to know how to avoid the flu? You’re in the right place.

It’s the holiday season, and although the nation is full of Christmas cheer, there’s one very big downside to this time of year: it’s flu season. Alas, every year thousands and thousands of people will get hit with the nasty flu virus, inducing irritating symptoms like fever, cough, runny nose, body aches, chills, and headaches (among others).

And, although many people get over it in a few days, the terrifying fact is that many more don’t.

Every year, over 36,000 people die because of the flu.  What appears to be an annoying but otherwise uneventful disease causes thousands to lose their lives, all across the nation.

And, unfortunately, those that are most susceptible to these fatalities are often the very young (less than a year old) and seniors ages 55+. Because their immune systems don’t tend to be as strong as those in other age groups, these demographics tend to get hit hardest by this virus.

Nobody wants to be sick on Christmas, but you especially can’t risk being sick with the flu (for obvious reasons). Not to mention, if you think the death rate for this virus is high now, just wait until an SHTF occurs, and we no longer have access to to the doctors, medications, and pharmacies that are so convenient today.

Luckily, even then, we can help treat the flu and increase our chances of survival with the help of natural remedies. That’s why it’s crucial you learn about these…

7 Natural Ways to Avoid the Flu

The Get-Well Drink

One of the best treatments to help get rid of flu symptoms is the all-natural “get-well drink.” This beverage includes four simple ingredients: hot water, cinnamon, honey, and lemon. The water will help hydrate you (a MUST when you’re sick with the flu), and the honey and cinnamon will work to prevent mucus from building up. The lemon juice also provides a nice burst of vitamin C to boost the immune system.

Essential Oils

Peppermint and frankincense essential oils can work wonders when treating flu symptoms. Rub these oils onto your neck and the bottoms of your feet to help support your overworking immune system.

Clove oil can also be very effective when treating the flu, as it helps prevent infection and speeds up recovery time.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for easing flu symptoms. That’s because it can dramatically boost your immune system, while supporting white blood cells. However, you need to make sure you’re consuming enough of it to gain the full benefits. Take 1,000 – 4,000mg of this vitamin every day to combat flu symptoms.

Fruits (especially citrusy ones) and vegetables are an excellent source of vitamin C. However, you can also buy Emergen-C and other vitamin C supplement powders at your local supermarket.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D primarily resides in sunlight, and greatly supports your immune system. Unfortunately, thanks to working in offices and staying primarily indoors every day, most Americans are significantly deficient in this vitamin. In fact, studies have proven that there is a direct link between low levels of vitamin D and higher rates of flu.

Physicians recommend you take in at least 2,000 units per kg of body weight every day for at least three days. However, nobody that’s sick wants to go walk around outside.

So, to keep your immune system healthy, invest in vitamin D supplements instead. This way, come rain or shine, your body is on its way to better health.

Echinacea

Many people know of echinacea because of its popular presence in tea. However, not many understand how many health benefits actually arise from this powerful herb.

Echinacea helps your body by fighting off infections – however, it’s most effective when taken at the first feelings of sickness. In fact, it’s so good at fighting respiratory infections that research has proven it’s just as effective (if not more so) as Tamiflu.

Echinacea is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, and is a killer of yeast and other fungi. As a result, this powerhouse herb is an essential to have with you in an SHTF situation.

For best results, take 1,000 mg two to three times every day. Some of the best ways to get your daily intake consist of:

  • Echinacea extract tablets (6.78 mg each – two of these tablets 3x per day)
  • Echinacea root tincture (900 mg daily)
  • Echinacea tea (5-6 cups the first day of symptoms, 1 cup per day afterward)
Elderberry

Elderberry is a powerful herb – so powerful, in fact, that many people believe it has the ability to “deactivate” the flu virus. It does this by increasing your body’s immunity to illness, and relieve flu and sinus symptoms.

Elderberry is also a wonderful herb to have you in times of crisis, since it attacks flu viruses at the source and decreases bronchial inflammation. Studies have shown that, when taken at the first sign of illness, elderberry decreases both the severity and longevity of the flu virus.

Zinc

Zinc has is a very effective antiviral, and also boosts your immune system. It can greatly decrease symptoms of the cold and flu, allowing you to feel better faster.

However, zinc is at its most beneficial in small doses. When taken to excess, it can actually harm the body.

In addition, zinc pills and sprays have not proven to be very effective, so make sure to consume about 50-100 mg of zinc every day in the foods you eat. Some of the most zinc-rich foods include:

  • Spinach
  • Beef
  • Shrimp
  • Kidney beans
  • Flax seeds
  • Oysters

Here’s some more helpful tips to help prevent you from getting sick this season!

SICK: Migrant Invader Filmed His Rape of 13-Year-Old Girl

juarez-mexico-11152022-venezuelan-migrants-cross

The appalling case of Christian Inga, a 25-year-old migrant from Ecuador accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at knifepoint in broad daylight in Queens, New York, lays bare the catastrophic consequences of President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies. Prosecutors allege that Inga even filmed the attack, adding an unimaginable level of horror to this already heinous crime.

Inga, who has been arrested and charged by the NYPD with numerous offenses including rape, sexual abuse, robbery, kidnapping, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and unlawful imprisonment, approached two 13-year-olds near Kissena Park in East Flushing, Queens. When the children initially refused his demand to follow him into a wooded area, he brandished a machete, forcing them into compliance.

Once in the woods, Inga allegedly tied up the children and proceeded to rape the 13-year-old girl, admitting to filming the brutal attack. The New York Post reports:

“The Ecuadorian migrant charged with raping a 13-year-old girl he bound and gagged in a Queens park told cops he recorded the attack during a sickening taped confession, prosecutors alleged Wednesday.”

This chilling admission during a hushed court hearing has sent shockwaves through the community. Inga first crossed the United States-Mexico border with his three-year-old son in June 2021 near Eagle Pass, Texas. Despite being ordered deported by a federal immigration judge in February 2022, he was released into the U.S. interior with a Notice to Appear (NTA), showcasing the glaring failures of the Biden administration’s immigration enforcement.

Inga’s criminal record extends beyond this appalling incident. He has had three summonses in the past — for having an open container in December 2022, jumping a subway turnstile in March 2023, and trespassing in May 2023. Additionally, NYPD officers were called to break up a fight at a residence in Queens in January, resulting in a domestic violence report, although he was not arrested.

This is just the latest incident of horrific, sickening crime committed by one of Biden’s illegal migrant invaders. The blame for this crime can be laid squarely at the feet of the Biden Administration and their lax policies at our Southern border, where known violent criminals arrive by the thousands every day.

California Senate Allows Schools to Trans Kids Without Informing Parents

sacramento-caus-june-10-2018-unidentified

The California Senate’s recent approval of a bill that would bar school districts from informing parents if their child decides to go by a new pronoun at school is a brazen and outrageous assault on parental rights and family integrity. This shocking legislation strips parents of their fundamental right to be involved in their children’s lives, placing the state in a position of unwarranted authority over deeply personal family matters.

This bill is a blatant and egregious attempt to undermine parental authority. It forbids school districts from enforcing policies that require teachers to disclose a student’s gender identity or sexual orientation to their parents without the child’s consent. Proponents of this bill claim it is necessary to protect students who might face hostility at home. However, this sweeping, one-size-fits-all policy fails to recognize the critical role that parents play in guiding, nurturing, and supporting their children through complex and challenging issues.

More disturbingly, this bill opens the door for schools to covertly influence or even convert children’s gender identities under the radar and without parental knowledge. It grants schools unchecked power to make life-altering decisions about children’s gender identities, effectively sidelining parents and keeping them in the dark about significant changes in their child’s life.

Greg Burt, vice president of the California Family Council, forcefully criticized the bill’s flawed assumption that parents are inherently unsafe. “You don’t assume that all parents are unsafe,” Burt declared. “That shouldn’t be the assumption.” His stance resonates with countless parents who believe they have an inherent right and responsibility to know what is happening in their children’s lives, particularly if their children begin identifying as “trans” or experiencing gender dysphoria.

This bill, now advancing to the state Assembly, represents a profound overreach by the state into family matters. Attorney General Rob Bonta’s lawsuit against the Chino Valley Unified School District for its parental notification policy further illustrates the radical lengths to which state officials will go to keep parents in the dark. This aggressive legal stance is an affront to every parent who values transparency and their critical role in their child’s upbringing.

The potential passage of this bill would be a disaster for parental rights and family cohesion. It sets a dangerous precedent, effectively telling parents they cannot be trusted with information about their own children. This is a gross overstep by the government and a betrayal of the trust and authority parents rightfully hold.

The fight to uphold parental rights is far from over. Advocates for transparency and parental involvement must continue to push back against this overreaching legislation. Parents deserve to be informed and involved in all aspects of their children’s lives. Anything less is an unacceptable infringement on their rights and a disservice to the children who depend on them. This bill must be stopped to protect the sanctity of the family and ensure that parents retain their rightful place in their children’s lives. Schools should not be allowed to covertly influence or change children’s gender identities without the knowledge and involvement of their parents. This covert manipulation is an affront to family values and the sacred bond between parent and child.

Illegals, Non-Citizens Voting in American Elections

female-voter-bulletin-hands-comes-voting

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is sounding the alarm on the scandalous reality of non-citizens voting in American elections. Appearing on Breitbart News Daily, he tore into the deeply troubling issue, calling for urgent action through the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act to restore the integrity of the U.S. electoral system.

Roy didn’t mince words. He exposed the shocking evidence of non-citizens voting, whether they are here legally or illegally. Studies have shown that such illegal voting has potentially swayed elections, like the highly controversial election of Al Franken in Minnesota. Just last year, Virginia had to purge 1,500 registered voters who had no right to vote. This isn’t an isolated problem; it’s a widespread epidemic infecting cities like Oakland, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and New York City. These jurisdictions are recklessly registering non-citizens for local and state elections, creating a dangerous loophole that could easily allow them to vote in federal elections.

Roy lambasted the federal laws that cripple states’ abilities to verify citizenship, forcing states like Arizona to juggle two separate election systems. This bureaucratic nightmare is an affront to every American voter who expects and deserves a fair and legal election process.

The Motor Voter Act of the 1990s, Roy argued, has only worsened the situation by making it nearly impossible for states to ensure that only citizens are voting. The federal forms may ask individuals to declare their citizenship, but there is no real enforcement or verification, leaving the door wide open for fraud and abuse.

The SAVE Act is Roy’s proposed solution, demanding proof of citizenship for anyone registering to vote. He acknowledged the unique challenges of states like North Dakota, which do not have voter registration, but insisted that the bill is adaptable to different state needs while maintaining its core mission: protecting the vote of American citizens.

Roy made it clear that this is not a partisan issue; it’s a matter of national security and democratic integrity. He cited a recent vote in Washington, DC, where 52 Democrats supported ending the registration of non-citizens for elections, showcasing the broad support for this critical issue. However, he also highlighted the fierce opposition from many Democrats who refuse to ensure that congressional seats and allocations are based on citizenship.

In a powerful conclusion, Roy condemned the Biden administration for flooding the country with millions of non-citizens, exacerbating the crisis. He called for immediate action to stop the outrageous betrayal of American voters and protect the democratic process from being hijacked by those who have no right to participate in it.

This is not just a policy debate; it’s a battle for the very soul of American democracy. The time to act is now, before the right to vote is further eroded by the influx of non-citizens and the reckless policies enabling them.
