LOL. Yes. It's been in the press that sauerkraut/kimchi is good for the flu. Sales nationwide are up 350% and 800% in some areas
I've kept a list of all the things that have been reported to have anti-viral properties:
* Star Anise
* Grape juice
* Elder berries
There are probably others that 'got by' me before I started keeping this list.

I think kimchi would be worse than death but my wife can handle it.

I forgot to mention Borage oil also; thought to reduce cytokines. I have started taking it for other benefits.

site I just linked above recommends against using Elder berries, saying they increase, not decrease cytokines, as do many of the anti-viral herbs usually recommended for the flu.

Have you ever looked into colloidal silver?
Some swear by it others think it's bunk...
