In this video, I’m going to tell you how to get rid of your infection symptoms naturally. To combat an infection, try to determine if you’re dealing with a viral infection or a bacterial infection.

Viral infection symptoms will be more systemic. If you have a viral infection, you’ll notice more body aches and chills. Bacterial infection symptoms will be localized. Fevers are typically higher with a bacterial infection.

A sore throat associated with a viral infection is often accompanied by a runny nose and a cough. If a sore throat is caused by a bacterial infection, you’ll feel more localized pain without a runny nose.

A dry cough is associated with a viral infection, while bacterial infections are associated with a productive cough. Respiratory infection, the common cold, flu, bronchitis, and infections involving the sinuses and lungs are generally viral. Pneumonia can be both bacterial and viral.

A viral infection typically lasts 1 to 2 weeks. A bacterial infection will probably last a bit longer, but this depends on your immune system. Mucus associated with a viral infection is usually clear or white and green or yellow with a bacterial infection.

The best viral infection remedies are elderberry and olive leaf extract. For bacterial infections, try garlic, oregano oil, and echinacea.

The following remedies for infection work for both viral and bacterial infections:
•Take a hot bath or shower/dress warm
•Get more sleep
•Take zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin C
•Fasting
•Increase sea salt intake
•Improve emotional state
•Get more sunlight (UVB and infrared rays)
•Take cod liver oil

Stress, age, and poor gut health can increase your susceptibility to infection. Refined sugar and other refined foods deplete zinc and vitamin C, also increasing your susceptibility to infection.

    I was sick a couple weeks ago and a long, piping hot shower made me feel better than anything else. Don’t sleep on hot showers, people! Sleep IN them. Not literally, haha, but I love to just close my eyes and meditate as the hot water falls on me.

  • @triciaolson1879 says:

    When I feel something coming on, I get into my sauna. It especially helps when you have the chills. I also will go sit in the sun no matter the temp outside. Homemade bone broth with some added carrots, chicken and herbs to hydrate and feed myself. I freeze the bone broth and roasted chicken pieces so I always have some on hand.

  • @mariecurie7491 says:

    I am 70. Got a classic flu on New Year’s Eve. Sweated it out and recovered well. Then last Sunday, wham! High fever. I have an idea that it is an opportunistic bacterial infection. The fever has gone down but I am very fatigued. Interestingly, I have had no refined sugar since New Year’s Eve. I prepare fresh seasonal vegetables from the market, with a lot of garlic and onion (purple when I can find it). I eat a fruit salad made from fresh straw-, blue- and any other berries I can get, with seasonal oranges. I live in Sicily, with plenty of sunshine. On the other hand, I still suffer from shoulder tendinitis from a bad fall at the end of October when a car cut me up on the cycle path. I take acetylcisteine and (for the last two days) antibiotics. Getting really fed up
