The best way to get the most out of this natural “medication” is to take it first thing in the morning- on an empty stomach.

2. Mix With Honey To Fight Your Flu
Honey and lemon is the oldest remedy in the book. When I was little I remember my grandmother telling me to boil hot water and mix them with honey and lemon to fight coughing, headaches caused from flu and other cold related symptoms. As infections are treated with antibiotics, viruses can only be treated for their symptoms. The anti-bacterial ingredients in the lemon would make sure that your oral environment is sanitised, while the honey would help with the pain in your throat.
