It’s that time of year when cold and flu viruses spread like wildfire!
There may not be a cure for the common cold but there are certain steps you can take to reduce your chances of catching one. Here are a few natural remedies to keep in mind:
- Sour Puss – A tsp of apple cider vinegar in ½ cup of water will help keep a cold at bay.
- Powerful Pepper – A cup of hot water with a ¼ tsp of cayenne pepper will help soothe a sore throat.
- Cold Cry – Onions have been used for centuries to ward off and relieve cold symptoms. Cut up and boil an onion to make tea. Adding a little lemon juice will help the taste.
Hopefully the nasty viruses will pass you by this season but it’s always good to be familiar with as many remedies as possible to help snuff out the sniffles. Here’s to your health this holiday season!
