10 Top Cold and Flu Healing Foods

Each of these 10 foods are fantastic choices to help you to heal from a cold or flu. And if you include them year-round or during times of increased exposure to bugs, they’ll help you prevent catching colds and flus.

When you feel the first signs of a cold or flu, try basing your diet mostly on these 10 foods. A diet that is all or mostly healing liquids such as fresh fruit and vegetable juices will help you to heal as quickly as possible, especially if you have a fever.

These foods are not only important for preventing and recovering from colds and flus, but also for strengthening and building up your immune system, healing from chronic illness and symptoms, detoxifying your body, and much more. The more you include them regularly, the more you’ll heal and the better you’ll feel over time!

Celery Juice kills off pathogens, including flu viruses. It’s unique form of vitamin C doesn’t need to be converted by the liver, which means it instantly strengthens the immune system. Drink 16 ounces or more of plain celery juice on an empty stomach. Read Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide for more information on how to use this herbal medicine to heal.

Cucumber Juice has anti-fever compounds and agents that help calm a fever like water on a fire. It’s also deeply rejuvenating and hydrating. Drink 16 ounces or more of plain cucumber juice on an empty stomach. Or drink it anytime you have a fever.

Lemon Water is excellent for the immune system, detoxifying the liver and body, rehydrating, and even helping with nausea. Squeeze half a lemon into 16 ounces of water every morning first thing. Make more to drink throughout the day. 

Ginger Water helps prevent colds and flus and helps alleviate fatigue, nausea and sore throats. Ginger also has its own signature variety of vitamin C and helps bring the body out of a reactive state when you’re sick. 

Thyme Tea and Water are anti-viral and help soothe coughs, relieve fevers, and fight colds and infections. 

Turmeric Ginger Shots are a potent combination of just fresh turmeric and ginger juice, or try the recipe with oranges and garlic too. These shots boost the immune system and can be sipped on all day when you have a cold or flu or anytime.

Fresh Fruit, Leafy Greens & Vegetable Juices offer a plethora of different nutrients and antioxidants your body needs to heal. In juiced form, they allow the body to heal as easily as possible. Try juicing apples, oranges, cucumbers, asparagus, melons, pears, celery, cilantro, parsley, dandelion, spinach, kale, radish greens, and more.

Healing Broth is healing, cleansing and nourishing all at the same time. It’s rich in minerals that need replenishing when you have a cold or flu. Check out the Medical Medium Healing Broth recipe. It’s best to strain out the vegetables and sip on just the broth when you have a fever.

Raw Garlic is antiviral and antibacterial, killing off only unproductive bacteria. It’s also immune strengthening. If you feel like you’re coming down with something like a sore throat, cold, or flu, mince one raw clove of garlic and mash it into half an avocado, banana, or some cooked potato. Repeat this three times daily until you feel better.

Raw Honey assists your body in keeping a strong first line of defense by strengthening neutrophils and macrophages so they can fight off pathogens. If you feel like you’re coming down with something, take a teaspoon of raw honey before bed. Add raw honey to lemon water to enhance the honey’s bioflavonoids and give the drink an additional immune boost.

For further support, consider some of the top herbs and supplements for colds and flus.
