5 Herbs That Cure the Flu

Ever get a flu shot and then wind up sniffling, sneezing, and sweaty anyway? That’s completely possible, according to new research published in The Lancet.

With more and more evidence coming out of just what’s in vaccines, people need to realize that it’s not about the money, it never was- vaccines of any kind are designed to be a bio-weapon and depopulation tool. It’s wise not to inject substances into your body without truly knowing what’s in the vile as the syringe breaks the rubber seal at the top.

It’s always good to have a plan B. Herbal flu preventives and flu treatments have been around for centuries, explains Eric Yarnell, ND, assistant professor of botanical medicine at Bastyr University in Seattle, and they’re easy to get without a prescription. Even some of history’s most virulent flu strains have been tamed by herbs, as detailed in herbalist Kathy Abascal’s book Herbs & Influenza: How Herbs Used in the 1918 Flu Pandemic Can Be Effective Today (Tigana Press, 2006). Through her research, she found that those treated with herbs in the flu pandemic of 1918 had a much higher survival rate compared to those who didn’t use herbs.

Below are some suggestions from some of the country’s leading herb experts for bolstering your immune system and treat flu symptoms with herbs.

To prevent flu infection: Yarnell recommends taking immunomodulating herbs, especially Panax quinquefolius (American ginseng), because there are clinical trials showing it can prevent both colds and flu.

Sambucus spp. (blue or black elderberry). Take as a syrup or glycerite (a vegetable glycerin-based liquid extract)—1 to 3 teaspoons, 3 times a day.

Echinacea angustifolia root. Take as a tincture (an alcoholic extract from a specific part of a plant)—5 milliliters (ml), 3 times a day; or as a capsule—1,000 milligrams (mg), 3 times a day.

Eupatorium perfoliatum (common boneset). Take as a tincture—3 ml, 3 times a day.

Andrographis paniculat Take as a tincture—3 ml, 3 times a day; or take a capsule—500 mg, 3 times a day.

Yarnell notes the above herbs have not been shown to interfere with Tamiflu, the common antiviral drug that most doctors dole out. “I’d say people really need to contact an herbalist or naturopathic doctor [ND] to be monitored,” he adds. To find a licensed ND, visit the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians at naturopathic.org. Find an herbalist through the American Herbalists Guild.

Try an herbal mix. “I spent a significant amount of time researching herbs that were used to treat the difficult flu strain in 1918 and came away convinced that herbs can be highly effective,” says Abascal. “I personally would not be without boneset, black cohosh, and pleurisy root. I would mix equal parts of these three herbs and take about 30 drops of the formula every hour or two if I thought I might be getting sick.” You can buy the herbs in tincture form and mix the liquids. Do your own research before using herbs in any amount. They are not drugs but they do work; some may interact in a negative way with other prescriptions you may be taking; so do your own research and if you feel it wise, check with your physician first if you have one.

Note: Some physicians are “paid” to speak against herbs and discredit them. Again, do your own research and keep in mind, it’s YOUR health not theirs that’s in question.
