natural ways to get rid of a cold?!

Question: Natural ways to get rid of a cold?
I have a really horrible cold and I've been off school with it for days now. I really hate using mint spray etc because they make my eyes water which makes it worse haha. Do you have any suggestions to speed up recovery? Like things that I can do, that I don't have to go out and buy? Thankyou :)


If you're really stuffed up and coughing a lot, breathe some steam - a warm shower or a soak in the tub is ideal. Drink plenty of fluids. Some light exercise is fine but don't push or overexert yourself, and get plenty of sleep. There are no tricks, it just takes time and all you can do is relieve the symptoms. Standing on your head, spinning around in circles, or taping a penny to your forehead will not magically make the cold go away any faster.

If you have a really bad cold, just go out and buy Cold-Eeze. They are like cough drops, but sweeter. If you take them daily it helps get rid of the cold quicker than usual. Only one daily. If you get a lot of sleep and eat the proper foods that helps, too. Soup is also something else that helps. If you ever feel or notice the symptoms of another cold, just take a Cold-Eeze and it will prevent the cold/infection from getting any worse than it is at the time.

This works for me: (although you may not like it but it works quickly)

Before going to bed, rub the flat of your feet with warm ( warm, not hot)
olive oil, and after, just rub a garlic opened in half. Put your socks
and go to bed. It works.

Hot soup and hot drinks certainly help to make you feel a bit better but as yet there is still no cure for the common cold. See the link below.…

drinking lots of water is super good. it allows drainage to dissolve.
try vick's vapor.
cough medicine? cold medicine?
salt water.

The two responses I just read will not provide the benefits you seek. Your own body has the capacity to kill the flu bug that has entered your body eliminating all its symptoms in just 2 to 3 hours. It is a truly natural technique that does not involve having to take anything. There are two websites I've come across that understand the importance of one key component that aides the body in killing the flu or should I say virus. But neither of them understands what actually takes place nor what it is that they may be doing that helps them to knock out the flu in 2 to 3 days. If they understood that information and knew how to take advantage of it, they they could knock out their flu symptoms not in 2 to 3 days, but in hours. I also know that with the adaptive feature which is the only item that entails cost--the simple natural technique requires no expenditures--one could terminate (kill) their flu bug in 1 1/2 hours. That is preferable b/c the the application of the natural technique is somewhat uncomfortable and some are unable to endure it. Since one would cut that uncomfortable factor in half, I would prefer adapting the adaptive feature. All you are doing with this natural technique is aiding the body to attack and kill the virus at its weakest point. It's that simple for those who prefer to save themselves from days of misery, and the costs that go with it; costs that over a lifetime would entail thousands of dollars going to pharmaceutical corporations and their investors making them billions. When this technique takes off fully, they will lose those billions which is the result of their greedy fruits that they will reap. After all, they have known for years what will easily kill the flu once it has infected the body, as do most doctors. Now whether they know how to go about doing that is a question no one but they could answer. My point is that, they know as do doctors how easily flu can be killed. But because it translates into guaranteed income, they will not give the public this information for free. Why should I. Visit my site. I can not offer it here because of this sites regulations, but you have sufficient information to be able to locate it, if you want to know how to safe money and misery. In fact, the two web owners I'll include here utilize an important component that they understand aides in killing off the flu virus. However, because their techniques take days over my own that only takes hours, it leads me to surmise that what they are able to accomplish, they do so accidentally otherwise they would be using the same technique that directly targets the flu viruses weakness and kills it.

Check out these sites: "Do Not Kill a Fever: Fever Kills Viruses"
and "Cure the common cold or flu Using 102 F Fevers" Their success occurs within 2 to 3 days
Search for my own site that does that in 2 to 3 HOURS
