Getting rid of the flu or a cold naturally

Updated: Aug 9, 2019

The wonderful man I used to live with got the flu, but he had decided he wouldn’t take any medication. Fair enough; I made him drink slow juices for about 3 days, and it worked like a charm!


I’m a firm believer that nature has everything we need to treat ourselves; actually, medication should be the alternative, not the other way round.  Food has super powers; fruit, vegetables and herbs have therapeutic effects – more than you will ever know!
