Effective Remedies for Cold Symptom Relief
Homemade Garlic Soup
If you don’t like garlic, this may not sound very pleasant, but drinking garlic soup is perhaps one of the most effective ways to overcome a cold. Garlic has been used for years because of its great medicinal power and health benefits.
Garlic helps to clear up the respiratory passages and the soup also helps to flush cold-producing toxins from the body. Here is a garlic soup recipe to tackle those cold symptoms.
- Boil three to four cloves of chopped garlic in just one cup of water.
- Drink once daily until the cold subsides.
- Drink the mixture once a week thereafter to prevent the symptoms from resurfacing.
If you don’t like this idea, try eating a clove of garlic chopped on a piece of toast. It really does taste delicious! My husband chews on a clove regularly to fight off colds…he never gets a cold…and luckily he works at home! 🙂
Homemade Ginger Soup
Ginger is also a great natural remedy for colds…and it may be a taste you prefer. It has some of the benefits of garlic and can help with those annoying cold symptoms. Here is a simple recipe to follow:
- Cut a piece of ginger root into small pieces and boil in a cup of water.
- Strain and add honey to sweeten if necessary.
- Drink the mixture twice daily for cold symptom relief.
Add Turmeric To Your Meals
Fresh turmeric is wonderful for many health problems, including inflammation and it could be the answer to your persistent cold. It helps if you are suffering with other symptoms like throat irritation.
Other Remedies You May Have At Home
Vitamin C Rich Foods – Or Supplements
Vitamin C is a common remedy, so make sure to eat plenty of vitamin C rich foods. Vitamin C is found in oranges, lemons and other citrus fruits. Alternatively, you can simply purchase some vitamin C tablets. Vitamin C intake helps keep your immune system healthy and strong. I take vitamin C powder every day!
Vitamin C is one vitamin that should not be ignored. It increases the body’s resistance to colds and flu and decreases the toxicity that can prolong a cold.
Or if you need a natural medicine, you can use a homeopathic medicine, especially if you don’t like the sound of these home remedies!
So if you are experiencing the symptoms of a cold, include plenty of healthy, nutritious foods and drink plenty of fluids…lots of freshly squeezed juices full of vitamin C.
Once you’ve totally recovered from your cold, maintain a well-balanced diet thereafter. Aim to eat natural food items as opposed to processed foods. Pack your diet with healthy, cold-fighting foods like fruit, vegetables, seeds, and nuts.
Natural remedies for cold symptom relief are excellent!
