tulsi herb tea

Drink Tulsi Tea 

Tulsi is considered one of the most purifying Ayurvedic herbs. Tulsi can help reduce headaches and fevers, relieve congestion, and support digestion. It is also known for soothing the nerves, supporting healthy emotions, and enhancing mental clarity. 

Tulsi tea is great when going through rough times in life. Drink one or two cups of tulsi a day to fight a cold. Note: avoid tulsi during pregnancy or high-pitta conditions like acid reflux or hot flashes.

turmeric herb

Honey & Turmeric Paste

Turmeric is an immune-boosting spice. It’s the best herb to amp up the immunity needed to fight off a flu, as it boasts natural anti-viral properties as well as energy, mood, and digestion properties. 

At the first sign of the flu, simply mix together equal parts of raw honey and turmeric powder. Take 1 teaspoon of the paste every few hours. You can also add a little bit of black pepper to make it even more powerful in case you are feeling very bad.

Ashwagandha Ghee

This adaptogenic herb has been shown to reduce stress and boost the immune system. It helps restore the endurance, energy, and stamina we need to fight the flu. Ashwagandha is an herb with overall nervous tonic benefits, energizing the body when it needs it during the day and calming overactive nerves for easy and restful sleep at night. 

To help fight the flu, use the Ashwagandha Ghee. Note that it’s always wise to check with your doctor before taking any supplements. Besides the immune support, Ashwagandha Ghee can also help in different areas, like hair growth, digestive system and others.
