hurray this is all fantastic! I am the same and will spend hours trying to learn about the natural remedies....
I recently used some leaves from the Muscadine grapes to keep my cukes crisp... I read that the leaves contain tannins that will do the trick and it really did work! I made some old fashioned pickles with just salt, water, cucumbers and a couple of leaves from the grapes. My first time trying this but won't be my last.
Three scientifically proven herbal remedies for Colds & Flu:
Echinacea, Echinacea purpurea, E. angustifolia taken at the first hint of a cold or flu symptoms, supports numerous bodily systems against the side effects of stress and fatigue & directly boosting the immune system.
Goldenseal, Hydrastis canadensis is remarkably high in berberine; a yellow-colored alkaloid, that is one of the most powerful plant derived antimicrobial agents in existence. Native Americans used the rootstock practically as a panacea, using it fore everything from ringworms to cancer & heart disease.
St. Johnswort, Hypericum perforatum used as a mild expectorant for the respiratory system, this is an extremely effective medicine for the treatment of influenza, HIV, and acts as an antibacterial against staph, strep, E. coli, and others. It is also used as a nerve tonic.
