8 Natural Remedies to Beat Colds and Flu

Cinnamon

This aromatic herb has secret powers besides flavoring oatmeal and cookies. Because of its anti-fungal and analgesic properties, Dr. Fratellone uses it to treat bronchitis. It tends to be warming for the body and it dilates your blood vessels, he says.

It also lowers blood sugar concentration and improves insulin sensitivity, which is why cinnamon is also being used to treat people who have diabetes. If you’re fighting a bug, create a cinnamon tea by pouring boiling water over the herb into a cup. Dr. Fratellone recommends one cup two or three times a day. You can also sprinkle it on your food or in your latte.
