How to treat Cold


Since my wife and older son are having a cold,  so I decided to do some research on how to treat cold and share what I found. Feel free to leave me comment if you have more suggestions

  • Drink lots of fluids. Water and green tea
  • A mixture of honey and lemon will boost the immune system and sooth irritated throats.
  • Gargling salt water – Warm salty water helps break away nasal congestion and particles of bacteria
  • Steam Salty Water – Warm salty water helps break away nasal congestion and particles of bacteria. Pour a pint of warm steamy water with a mixture of salt. Allow the water to be steamy for effective results and then breathe in the hot steam or squirt the salty water into the nose using a bulb syringe or anything similar and watch your nasal passages unblock.
  • Eat food rich in Vitamin C such as:
    • citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruit, etc)
    • cantaloupe
    • strawberries
    • tomatoes
    • broccoli
    • kiwi fruit
    • sweet red peppers
