  2. My advice to everyone is this :
    If you start feeling sick and have itchy throat start gargling with warm water and salt every day bc the virus will stay there for 3 to 4 days .. by doing this it will kill the virus before it gets to the lungs.. another thing to do is to boost your immune system by taking vitamin C and eat a lot of oranges .. also you can do is boil a cup of water .. squeeze one lemon and cut a small piece of ginger.. put them in that hot water and let it sit for a couple min .. then drink it while is warm .. do this every morning..
    at night you can eat one tea spoon of honey or chop one glove of garlic and swallow it with water .. all the thing I mentioned it will boost your immune system and kill all the germs in your body….good luck to everyone and may God and Jesus keep the world save ..!!!!

  3. Steam inhalations are a very important natural remedy when you are cold and a true medicine for inflamed and congested mucous membranes. Steams moisten the airways, fluidize the secretions and stimulate their elimination, and by combining with medicinal slopes and essential oils destroy pathogens, disinfect the airways, and soothe the neck irritation.
    Inhalations are recommended in case of runny nose, sore throat, headache, dry neck, viruses etc. It is usually in the evening, before bedtime, after the room has been previously ventilated and heated. Water is put on the fire and when it starts to boil add dried herbs. The most suitable are the chamomile, thyme, sage and basil. Cover the bowl for a few minutes, then put on a towel and sit 10-15 minutes above the bowl that emits healing steam, with emollient, soothing, anti-inflammatory effect. You can also inhale by placing up to 10 drops of eucalyptus, peppermint, thyme, lavender, cloves, which have a decongestant, expectorant, anti-infectious, antiviral effect in water.
