Getting rid of the flu or a cold naturally

The wonderful man I used to live with got the flu, but he had decided he wouldn’t take any medication. Fair enough; I made him drink slow juices for about 3 days, and it worked like a charm!

I’m a firm believer that nature has everything we need to treat ourselves; actually, medication should be the alternative, not the other way round.  Food has super powers; fruit, vegetables and herbs have therapeutic effects – more than you will ever know!

Check the nutrients and vitamins you can find in fruits and veggies.

The green juice

  • Limes, 2 (peeled)
  • Green apples, 2
  • Cucumbers, 2
  • Kale, 5 leaves
  • Coriander, a handful

Run all ingredients through a (slow) juicer – start and finish with the apples. Serve over ice and enjoy!
