Eat fresh garlic mate .... mixed through your vegies and salads ...... the raw unprocessed unpreserved version of garlic ......... also eat other foods and condiments that are powerfull natural antiobiotics to bolster your immunity and health and dramatically reduce cold symptoms ~ onions, leeks, shallots, radishes, fenugreek, fresh gingerroot, chilli and plenty of raw salads and fruits and their juices......... ifyou find it difficult to eat hot spicy things try eating them with plenty of food and even small amounts of these things can help to expel infected mucous from your body and bolster your immune system ....... try grating raw garlic or expelling its juice in a garlic press or chop it into tiny pieces and mix through cooked foods and salads thus a little easier to tolerate...... or add some fresh garlic juice to your vegetable juice cocktail.......... raw garlic and other plants from the onion family are superb powerful naturall antiobiotics and can help to eradicate and control infections from any part of the body.... even in cases where there is resistance to antiobiotic drugs....if you absolutely hate raw garlic and its odor then you can use the garlic capsules which aren't as effective.

garlic is good for boosting immunity, is an antispasmotic, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure and also works as an anti inflammatory .......... wonderfull stuff, particularly if you can tolerate it crushed and raw ....... raw garlic works best as a powerfull antibiotic that fights bacteria, parasites and viruses ... garlic is also good for heart disease (two or three cloves a day lessen the chance of heart attacks) and stroke and it contains many preventive, anticancer compounds and antioxidants (raw, cooked, or aged at best). Garlic is also good for colds (decongestant and expectorant) and works as an antidiarrheal...... it helps relieve gas, is estrogenic and works as an antidepressant too ..... fabulous stuff hey.

Just start off slowly as the taste is quite strong ....... work up to 2 or 3 cloves daily as that much all at once if you're not used to it may disturb your digestion.

squeeze fresh orange juice and drink up ........ oranges are rich in vitamin C which is also a very powerfull natural antibiotic and is loaded with antioxidants ....... vitamin C will effectively reduce fever and is also a natural anti inflammatory and is a powerfull remedy for nasty coughing.......... squeeze those oranges.

protect your precious supplies of vitamin C too ...... if you're taking lots of aspirin you're losing vitamin C........ cut right back on caffeine containing drinks such as coffee and tea and eliminate sodas and soft drinks and pop as they will all dehydrate you terribly and rob you of your precious water soluble supplies of vitamin C........... drink 8 glasses of water daily and hydrate yourself properly to help your body function at peak levels and eliminate any germs.

Ditch processed sugar as bacteria will literally feed and multiply on it.

Ditch the milk and dairy products also as they are mucous producing and will only inflame a stressed body.

Other things that will rob you of your precious supplies of vitamin C are stress, alcohol, processed sugar, aspirin and otc counter cold and flu meds, antiobiotics, sleeping tablets, laxatives and diuretics, the oral contraceptive and eostrogen supplementation (if you are female) and smoking.... Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin and as such our bodies can neither store or produce it and we need to ingest it on a daily basis.


peace baby

Zycam is good. It's a homoeopathic remedy which cuts cold symptoms down to about 3 or 4 days. Get it at grocery store. It does not require a prescription.

For the sinuses, put a hot damp towel across your sinuses.

For you chest congestion, dampen a paper towel.

Spread mustard powder and cayenne pepper on the wet towel. Put another damp paper towel over the top of that.


Put some saran wrap over that to keep the moisture in and then, finally, put a regular towel over that to keep the heat in.

Leave it there for 20 minutes and it will loosen up the tightness in your chest.

This works. It will not burn you, so don't worry about it when it starts getting hot.

It you are coughing up coloured phlegm, go to a doctor. Bacterial infections do not clear up on their own, so you may need an antibiotic.

Are you running a fever.? Yes.? Go to a doctor.

Drink plenty of fluids, take vitamin C.

I almost always take vitamin C and Zinc. also drink plenty of water, or drink a lot of orange juice. I've also taken Echynacea tea which boosts your immune system. For the stuffy nose you can use Afrin. For the cough I've used honey bee and lemon, or simply Robitussin.Health Question & Answer
