Natural Foods Market in Midland has some remedies to help you fight off the flu once you get it and to prevent you from getting it too.

According to NewsWest 9, the flu virus has caused more than 2,000 deaths in Texas, so prevention or getting over the flu is essential.

Natural Foods Market in Midland owner Larry Satterfield says to try natural remedies if the drug store remedies are not working.

Items that you can use can be found in your kitchen like garlic, oregano, and elderberry. If you don't have any of these you can find them at Natural Foods Market at 2311 W. Wadley Ave. in Midland.

Your best bet is to make sure you have gotten a flu shot, if you haven't yet this season, you can still get it at your doctors office or any pharmacy in Midland or Odessa.
