Ever since I was little, my mom takes care of me when I have the flu. Now that I am an adult also, it hurts to see that my mom is the one down with the flu. I want to take care of her the way she takes care of me when I am sick. I already bought some Paracetamol and vitamin C for her to take. I am planning to buy cough medicine and antibiotics later. Any other suggestions for her fast recovery? I also believe in herbal medicine but I do not know which herbal medicine to take when a person has the flu. Your response will be much appreciated. :)

She can have water therapy. Take some supplements of Vitamin C or citrus fruits. Take a load of rest. Good day!

if she wont mind soup,boil meat and then just give her the soup that you should put lemon juice,freshly squeezed and some fresh pepper,it would help clear her airway and also relieve the throat of soreness.or boil water with fresh crushed ginger,fresh garlic and lemon juice then add honey this also works well and keep her warm.hope she gets better soon and let her sleep and rest alot.

She'll feel relieved after taking antibiotics. But you can also try letting her take Lagundi leaves boiled in water. It can soothe her throat.

She's taking antibiotics. Haven't tried Lagundi though. I know Lagundi has been approved as herbal medicine for cough. Thanks for the response. :)

make her take lots of vitamin c, especially fruits that contain vitamin c like oranges. also, honey will be good for her. rest also will help her recover fast.

Yes, I'm making her take Vitamin C, 1000 mg. I also told her to rest and give her body time to recover. Thanks for the response. :)
