  • #1 are you sure it's the flu?

    #2 the flu is a virus and all you can do is let it run it's course.

    You can however look up home remedies for the individual symptoms you are having and treat those.

  • By far the best thing for treating the flu is Vitamin D. Lot's and lots of it. Once you get the flu, take 2,000 units per kg of body weight as one dose daily for 3 days.
