10 Natural Remedies for the Flu

Humidify

Some research shows that flu germs survive and spread more easily in dry air conditions. Therefore it is recommended to maintain indoor humidity levels during flu season. Using a humidifier can help achieve this.

Plus, inhaling moist air also eases nasal congestion and abates discomfort associated with a sore throat. One effective strategy is to take a hot shower inhaling steam or to use a steam vaporizer or a humidifier.

Steamy showers can ease moisturizing the nasal passages while also helping the individual to relax. When using a humidifier, make sure to keep it clean and free of mold and mildew growth. The damp air created by a humidifier can really be very helpful at night and help ease breathing.
