Home remedies for treating influenza and a cold

The home treatment for influenza consists in drinking fruit juices rich in vitamin C and teas with anti-inflammatory properties that can help fight a sore throat. It is also important to drink plenty of water to fluidize the secretions and eat soft foods so as not to irritate the throat when swallowing.

It is also important to avoid drafts, not to stand barefoot, dress appropriately for the season and drink plenty of water, juice or tea to fluidize the secretions, facilitating their withdrawal.
