Top 5 Treatments for the Common Cold

By A. Devia

Well, it's that time of year again - Cold and Flu season.  Cough, sniffles and general ick.  So, here are some of my favorite treatments:

Netti Pot - Like washing a wound to prevent infection, using a Netti Pot wash the sinus cavities help to reduce congestion and infection.
Chest Rub - An ointment or cream containing ingredients such as camphor, menthol and eucalyptus help to relieve cough and chest congestion.
Honey - Sweeten tea with honey rather than sugar or spread some on toast with cinnamon. Honey can kill germs - bacterial and viral! It also helps to sooth and coat a sore throat on its way down.
Hot Herbal Tea - Hot tea can go beyond a nostalgic comfort when you are sick. Herbal infusions can have a wide array of germ fighting, immune boosting, symptom relieving effects. Try our Rose Hips & Hibiscus blend for an extra dose of vitamin C or our Peppermint tea to ease an upset stomach. Chamomile tea is calming and can help to reduce a mild fever.
Chicken Soup Deluxe - Chicken soup can deliver much needed nutrients and fluids in a gentle way but adding our Chicken Soup Booster Blend can give it an added germ fighting punch.
