It’s that time of year again. No, I’m not talking about the holidays, I mean cold season.
As the cool weather settles in and you start all the cleaning, cooking, shopping and running around that seem to go hand-in hand with the holidays, you can start to feel stressed out and run down.
It’s the perfect formula for catching a cold.
But if you’ve been blindsided with the sniffles and sneezes and you want to feel better fast I’ve got good news. Nature has provided us with some amazingly effective cold-fighters that can slash your symptoms and put you onto the road to recovery.
Common cold basics that make a BIG difference
I’ll have more on those potent cold fighters in just a moment, but first let’s get started with some common cold… common sense… basics.
When you’re under the weather your immune system is working overtime to get you well. You can lend a hand by following mom’s timeless and effective cold advice…
- Get lots of rest.
- Load up on plenty of liquids.
- Give chicken noodle soup a try (studies confirm this old-fashioned cold cure REALLY works!)
With the basics underway it’s time to bring on the big guns, natural cold-slaying supplements.
Feel better fast with nature’s medicine cabinet
One sure fire secret to beating a cold is to combine the potent natural antibiotic colloidal silver with a few of the best cold fighters on the planet:
- Vitamin C
- Olive leaf extract
If you’re suffering with a cold, loading up on vitamin C can help turn the tide. For the first six hours you are going to want to load up on this potent cold-fighting vitamin taking 1,000 mg an hour. You can then back down to three 1,000 mg a day moving forward.
Eat one to three cloves of fresh minced garlic daily. Allow the garlic to sit for 15 minutes before eating. Fresh garlic can be strong, so feel free to mix the spice into some food to make it more palatable.
To effectively fight your cold symptoms triple or quadruple the dose of Echinacea that’s recommended on the label of the product you buy. Look for an Echinacea extract if you can find one. The extract can be used as a soothing gargle to relieve a sore throat. Swallow the extract when done gargling.
Olive leaf extract:
Take the olive leaf as directed on the label of the product you buy.
Take the zinc as directed on the label of the product you buy.
The sooner you get started on this simple and powerful cold beating plan the better. If you stick with it your cold should be nothing but a bad memory in a few short days.
