We told you about flu and allergy and their home remedies in previous posts. In this post we continue the topic with other remedies.
Did you know turnip is so good for flu? turnip is hot and dry, it acts like an anti-biotic, and scrapes the phlegm and undigested mucus out of the lungs.
Imagine your lungs are a pot full of phlegm and undigested mucus. Every time that you eat turnip it is like kindling a big fire underneath this pot! This fire burns the mucus and cleanses your lungs and respiratory system!
Nevertheless many people hate the taste and smell of it! How can you make it delicious!?
Chop 2 turnips and 2 apples in small pieces. Pour some olive oil in a pan and add ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder + ¼ teaspoon rose powder (or coriander powder) + 2 pinches saffron (or nutmeg) to it. Heat the spices in the oil for 1-2 minutes; then add the turnips and apples to them. Add 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup and some fresh lemon or lime to the pan. Put the lid on and let the ingredients cook slowly.After the turnip/apple mix is cooked pour some honey on it and eat it 2-3 daily when you are suffering from allergy or flu!
Chew on a clove bud or a cardamom pod like a gum and swallow it at the end!
