This year we seem to be subjected to one virus after another. Nearly everyone I know was sick over the Christmas with a virus of some kind. We had 3 varieties going in our house.
So how did our ancestors deal with viruses? Well they turned to nature, they used knowledge that was passed down from one generation to another and each culture had their own remedies depending on what grew naturally in their environment.
Herbal remedies historically used for viruses:
The more I see conditions and diseases that were less severe or common 30 years ago, the more I am convinced that our diet and lifestyles have a large part to play. We all have those conversations about how everyone that comes down with a flu is wiped out for 3 weeks now rather than 3 days. Maybe part of the reason for this is that we cook so little from fresh anymore and use so little of these herbs fresh anymore that we are not building our natural defenses enough.
Even if that’s not the case, why not add some of these common kitchen herbs into your diet and cook more often from fresh ingredients, at worst you’ll have a scrummy meal, at best you will feel better!
