4 quick remedies for Freshers’ flu
It’s that time of year again and every other person is coughing and spluttering. Lectures are never silent, and seminars are a cesspit of mucus. You had a good time during Freshers but now you’re suffering for it – and it isn’t the hangover that’s the problem. Here are four quick remedies for the notorious Freshers’ flu:
Eat lots of citrus fruits. Vitamin C is known to help boost your immune system, especially when it’s run down. So, get a bag or two of tangerines and get peeling.
Gargling saltwater has been proven to soothe a sore throat. It may only be a temporary solution to Freshers’ flu but isn’t everything? Bang in the table salt and try not to gag.
Honey has a variety of antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and drinking it in tea, especially with lemon (good old vitamin C again) is commonly known to perk you up and make you feel much better.
Now I’m not saying that eating cheesy garlic bread for a week will help you feel better but buying a bulb or two for some pasta definitely isn’t going to hurt. It often reduces cold and flu symptoms and according to some research, it might even help you avoid becoming ill in the first place.
