In order to understand who you are dealing with, I confess to you that I'm the seasonal disease spreader - even the most harmless virus sticks with me, wanting to be friends, and my low immune system says, come on! Well, you get it!
That is why, most of my money during the cold season, is spend on pharmaceuticals. Pharmacies will envy my doctor cabinet for sure, but I'm done with drugs, because I have to build a strong body, and we all know that drugs have side effects, and I decided to recall to natural remedies.
And these are the remedies that caught my ear since I was a little kid, when my grandmother or mother treated my flu and other cold symptoms.
Onion tea - if you want to get back on your feet the next day
Let's make it clear: if you're only troubling yourself about the taste you should know that you're not wrong at all - it's terrible. But you don't have to enjoy a warm 5 o'clock cup of tea you have to get rid of influenza, so you need it.
When in a stubborn cold or immediately after it passes, a nagging cough installs, your chest hurts and even the throat isn't very happy.

Boil the onion in water for 5-8 minutes, and then let for another 10 minutes to infuse in the pot with a lid over it.
Now, you can enjoy the onion tea by drinking it while is warm.
