How do you contract the influenza virus? Well, it is mainly if you happen to be near an infected person, if he or she sneezes or coughs. You can also get infected if you use the handkerchief of a person with influenza.
Let’s look at some home remedies that provide relief from flu symptoms.

Stir in a tlbsp of honey, till it blends well.
Have this 2-3 times a day.
In a cup of water, add 2 tsp of methi or fenugreek powder.

Add this to the water, and simmer for about 7-10 minutes.
Strain the liquid.
Now add in 2 tsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp of honey.

Crush a clove of garlic and add some honey to it. Have this 3-4 times a day. You can even chop a clove of garlic fine and swallow with water.
