QUESTION: Dear Jamaican Herbalist,
Hi Anthea: What is the course of treatment for colds and flu? Thanks!
Several herbs are great for flu such as guinea hen weed. However here is a quick recipe:
Boil a crushed peg of garlic with beaten garlic and orange peel Guinea Hen weed brew may be added to the boiling mixture. When everything comes to a boil put it to simmer.
As soon as you are ready to remove it from the fire, squeeze lemon juice just before serving and sweeten with honey only if necessary.
