Natural Flu Remedies? No Milk???

Hi Guys... I'm new here. But i figured that you'd be the ones to ask.

So i read about natural ways to cure a flu and it makes sense. BUT it also says "no milk!"

I always give my kids hot milk when they are sick. Is that really bad? Are they right???

Re: Natural Flu Remedies? No Milk???

Milk has a tendency to cause more mucus. Your better off with some tea and honey. If it's a sinus problem look into doing sinus rinses, it does help. Gargling with some salt and water helps as well.

Hope this helped..JJ...

It's not bad and won't hurt them to give milk (if it makes your kids feel better, that's great), but it does lead to more phlegm.

Peppermint tea sometimes helps with nausea, just put some honey into it. I have heard that ginger tea is helpful as well, though I've found its taste a little, well... not good. If I remember right, it had a kind of meh woody flavour.
