DIY Detox Bath [HOME REMEDIE]

2. Add three pints of hydrogen peroxide (3%). This oxygenates the body and helps purge toxins. It’s also antibacterial and antiviral.
3. Add two ounces of ground ginger, a natural anti-inflammatory that increases blood circulation and helps promote the elimination of toxins through sweat.
4. Soak for about 30 minutes.
5. Drink lots of water; You need to replenish what’s being pulled out of your system.
My experience on this detox bath
Within 5 minutes of soaking in the tub, your body body felt like it had turned into a faucet.
Sweat started pouring down my face and out of every pore.
Afterward, I drank two large glasses of water and crawled into bed.
I slept like a baby that night, and to my surprise, woke up feeling more energetic and less achy than the day before.
Miraculous! I only need that one soak to feel vastly better, but my aunt suggests repeating the bath for up to three days if symptons persist.

Some More Remedies that works
Water, juice, clear broth or warm lemon water with honey helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration.
Avoid alcohol, coffee and caffeinated sodas, which can make dehydration worse.
Your body needs to heal.
Soothe a sore throat.
A saltwater gargle — 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt dissolved in an 8-ounce glass of warm water — can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat.
Children younger than 6 years are unlikely to be able to gargle properly.
You can also try ice chips, sore throat sprays, lozenges or hard candy. Don’t give lozenges or hard candy to children younger than 3 to 4 years old because they can choke on them.
Over-the-counter saline nasal drops and sprays can help relieve stuffiness and congestion.
In infants, experts recommend putting several saline drops into one nostril, then gently suctioning that nostril with a bulb syringe.
To do this, squeeze the bulb, gently place the syringe tip in the nostril about 1/4 to 1/2 inch (about 6 to 12 millimeters) and slowly release the bulb.
Saline nasal sprays may be used in older children.
For children 6 months or younger, give only acetaminophen. For children older than 6 months, give either acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Ask your child’s health care provider for the correct dose for your child’s age and weight.
Adults can take acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or aspirin.
Use caution when giving aspirin to children or teenagers.
Though aspirin is approved for use in children older than age 3, children and teenagers recovering from chickenpox or flu-like symptoms should never take aspirin.
This is because aspirin has been linked to Reye’s syndrome, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, in such children.
Sip warm liquids.
A cold remedy used in many cultures, taking in warm liquids, such as chicken soup, tea, or warm apple juice, might be soothing and might ease congestion by increasing mucus flow.
Add moisture to the air.
A cool mist vaporizer or humidifier can add moisture to your home, which might help loosen congestion.
Change the water daily, and clean the unit according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Don’t use steam, which hasn’t been shown to help and may cause burns.
