Number 1 make duaa, ask Allah to make this illness easy for you and to give you shifr, purify your sins ameen
First thing in the morning on an empty stomach have a glass of water with either echinechea or golden seal tincture these are two roots that are great for boosting the immune system golden seal is for asthma exzema, hayfever types and the echinechea is for the rest, however if you can get one take the other for now from health food stores you can get a grapefruit seed extract called Citricidal, its really sour but cold viruses run a mile, dilutes in cool water.
First have herb tea or chai made with fresh ginger, cloves cardamom and cinnamon, boil, with water, I have with red boosh tea not Indian tea and I mix with soya milk and honey,
OR mint/ginger tea with black seed oil and honey, no milk
OR apple cidar vinegar, honey in boiled then left for 5 minutes then poured with vinegar, otherwise boiling water destroys some of the goodness
Fresh fruit or juice
Boiled egg dry toast and tomatoes salad, etc.
In the morning after breakfast 1 vegan multi vitamin and 3000g of vitamin c tablets
Cut out meat and dairy y as much as you can, drink chai or ginger tea all day and glasses of fruit juice
Make veggie food, I had curried beans chop onion fry add curry powder and tin of beans have with toast of rice, I had beetroots raw onion and vinegar salad, apple cider vinegar is a star remedy for flu, put some over beet root and onion, I bought some today in the morning first thing Inshallah I’m having cider vinegar honey and warm water
After lunch more vitamin C, another 300o g I do this
Spices are good
Made paste of turmeric and honey and slowly swallow
Dry fry carom/ ajwain seeds in small frying pan , as they are browning lift pan to your open mouth and inhale smoke, it will “kick “ the bad of your throat, add to soya milk or nut milk in small saucepan and cook low and slow with turmeric /haldi, when hot add to cup with honey before bed
Still not going, buy friar balsam tincture , before bed or after bath, boil kettle and get an old large bowl, put one boiled kettle of water in and add 2-3 table spoon of friars balsam, cover head with towel and inhale, it’s not as abrasive as eucalyptus and will lift tickly phlegm off your chest, spit it out
Rub black seed oil mixed with olive oil and Olbas oil over your chest and throat, I f you can get someone to rub on your back too.
REMEMBER TO HAVE SOME MANNERS AND PLEASE COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSEY, IDEALLY WITH A HANDKERCHIEF WHEN YOU SNEEZE OR COUGH
