#1 Home remedy : Oreganol
A fellow teacher said, "Hey, have you tried Oreganol (this is strong oregano oil in a pill capsule)? I feel God helped me discover this."
I gratefully took one Oreganol pill with water and within (I"m not exagerating) 3-5 minutes my stomach pain left. I still felt like I had to fight-off other symptoms such as tiredness, but it eliminated the worst of the viral symptoms. We now keep Oreganol in our Herbal Medicine Cabinet and have, for the last few years had consistent results - after a few minutes the worst of the viral symptoms leave.
Does this work on all viruses? I have no idea, but it does work for the stomach bug and most other "cold-type symptoms" for our family.
#2 Colloidal silver
I have not used this, but it is known to fight virus and bacteria. A friend of mine uses it. You should research its benefits, uses, and safety. Use caution as this is not herbal.
Let us remember that God is our healer! Let us remember to love and pray for one another. Jesus died so that we can come to the Father. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and (by) his stripes we are healed. -Isaiah 53:5
