Onions By The Bed Can Help You Survive The Cold And Flu Season?
Note the question mark. It may be a true statement, but personally I'm not sure. I'm thinking a flu shot may be best. However, Lauren Feder, who is a medical doctor and the author of "Natural Baby and Childcare" has some other ideas. The Dr. says some time-tested treatments can lessen the cold or flu bug's symptoms and speed recovery for both adults and children.
Some of her recommendations are: Get plenty of rest. Avoid sweets, daily and junk food. Wash your hands often. Eat plenty of garlic. Place a sliced onion on the night stand to act as a decongestant and assist breathing while you are sleeping, and drink lots of warm fluids. They seem like common sense things to do. I may avoid the garlic, but an onion or two in my room at night? Why not?
