Ways to Prevent Colds and Flus Naturally

We’ve been surrounded by sickness over the past few weeks. If you’re seeing people drop like flies around your area, you may want to apply some of these 5 natural cold remedies that are known to help kick a cold before it starts and even help alleviate an existing one.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

This incredible oil is rich in antioxidants and contains lauric acid. Both contain anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Coconut oil can be used to help prevent colds by boosting the immune system. Once the cold is set in, coconut oil can help reduce the length of sickness and can be therapeutic when added to warm honey-lemon water or tea.

Raw Honey


Honey has powerful anti-viral and anti-microbial properties. In clinical studies honey has shown to be just as effective in alleviating coughs as over-the-counter cough medicine. Honey is also known to help alleviate allergies. According to this article, taking a few teaspoons of local raw honey a day prior to pollen season can be very effective in boosting your immunity to pollen.



Garlic is naturally anti-fungal and antibacterial. Taken raw, this potent super-food can help kick any cold to the curb! Plug your nose and swallow 1-2 cloves the moment you feel a cold coming on.

Elderberry Syrup


Elderberries have been used in traditional folk medicine for generations. Elderberries are high in antioxidants which help stimulate the immune system. A compound in in elderberry, anthocyanins have also been found to have an anti-inflammatory effect making it an effective medicine for aches and pains.

Fermented Cod Liver Oil

Update: After reading Dr. Kaayla Daniels report on Fermented Cod Liver Oil, I no longer endorse the use of this supplement. Read her report here: Hook, Line and Stinker!: The Truth About Fermented Cod Liver Oil

High vitamin FCLO is a super food everyone should have in their cupboard. The naturally occurring levels of vitamins A and D boost the immune system. Vitamin D is also know to be an antimicrobial agent that battles bacteria, viruses and fungi.

    This is great, thank you! One thing about the garlic, I have heard that mincing and letting it sit for a few minutes allows the healthy alliicin to form. And I’ve also heard that nutrients are more effective when they go through the salivary process of eating. Are these things true? So when I’ve eaten it for health, I mince then wait a few minutes, then take a teaspoon of peanut butter and dab the garlic onto it and eat. The peanut butter wraps around the garlic, making it more tolerable.

    As an added thought, the only thing you’ll ever need to kill a cold is Oil of Oregano. This stuff is amazing! I take 5 drops 3 times a day, and within 24 – 36 hours, your cold or bacteria or whatever is ailing you is gone. You don’t want to take it for more than 5 days tho as the liver does not like it. I never have to worry about colds or bugs again.
