Round off the drink with a strong dash of ground black pepper. The effect is sharp and intense, because the peppered piperine stimulates the metabolism, leads to increased perspiration, pathogens have nothing to laugh about!
Sleep is the best medicine
Sleep was considered a cure-all by the ancient Greeks. A long-lasting sleep cure, by means of which the sick could sleep soundly in the temple of Asclepius, is hardly possible today. Nevertheless: Quiet night sleep without major interruptions helps the body to regenerate. a few drops of eucalyptus oil or lavender oil, piled on the pillow, support the therapeutic sleep.
Necklace from nature
Sore throat is one of the most unpleasant side effects of feverish diseases. An old home remedy eliminates this pain in no time: Slice a radish (Rettich) and thread it on a string. Wrap the “chain” around your neck overnight and wake up painless!
Freshness cure for the blood
Blood cleansers excrete a lot of pollutants before they settle in the connective tissue. This helps to prevent infections and febrile diseases. Watercress, to harvest in late autumn on streams and wetlands, acts like a fountain of youth. A handful of it, steamed in water with a little salt and butter, has the same effect as a tea made from dried leaves. It stimulates the entire metabolism. Another useful herb for this is dandelion. Like many spring plants, dandelion has a pronounced blood-purifying power and is therefore excellently suited for a spring cure and to purge the body. Use three fresh or dried flowers for a cup of tea. Let steep for 10 minutes, then drink in small sips.
