This year will be different. This year, you’ll walk the corridors of the office with your head held high, fearless, between November and March. This year, you won’t be in that 10-25% who catch the flu! That’s because this year, you’ll know all about traditional Japanese home remedies to protect yourself from flu and the common cold.
When you look at food, do you immediately think of how many calories it holds? Or maybe you think to yourself how delicious it will be. But do you ever wonder how medicinal it is?
For thousands of years, Japanese cold remedies have focused on eating healthy, nutritious meals instead of swallowing endless pills and bottled liquids. The basic idea is that healthy food is its own natural medicine.
In Japan, this type of medicinal food cooking, called Yakuzen, is simply a way of life. Japanese men and women live longer and healthier lives, and many scientists believe this is due to diet and lifestyle, which keeps their blood pressure low, their immune system resilient, and their bodies strong.
Nutritious Japanese cold medicine and traditional home remedies can soothe flu symptoms and shorten the duration of a cold or a flu, without having to resort to store-bought medicines full of additives, sweeteners and synthetic compounds.
