Ways to Fight the Common Cold

Google

Over the past week, I have had come down with a cold. I had a stuffy nose, sore throat, etc.
Here are the things I have done this week to try and fight off this cold:

  • Eat Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Drinks lots of fluids, such as Orange Juice, Tea, Water, etc.
  • Takes lots and lots of Vitamin C! I recommend Emergen-C Super Orange
  • Take Zinc when you start feeling sick, it helps support your immune system
  • Use a Humidifier when you sleep to help aid in your congestion
  • Take a hot bath or shower, the steam will help open up your sinuses
  • Rub  Vicks Vaporub on your chest and below your nose, it helps you breathe better
  • Rest! The number one thing you need when you have a cold is rest!
  • Only see your Doctor if the symptoms last more than seven (7) days, you may have a sinus infection or something worse that may need to be treated by antibiotics

Hope this helps if you are currently fighting the common cold
