how do you get rid of a cold?
i feel like im getting a cold..my throat kinda hurts and mi nose is sometimes stuffy. is there a way i can make it "go away" before it really comes?

The best way is echinacea, vitamin c, yin chao, or a bath with lavender essential oil. If you develop a cold, lemon and honey can soothe a sore throat with a cold or flu. You can also gargle with salt water for a sore throat. Salt water is also great for irrigating sinuses if you have sinus congestion. Cinnamon is highly anti-viral and most people have some in the spice cabinet. Essential oils of lavender and eucalyptus are highly anti-viral and can be used diluted for children with colds. Peppermint essential oil can also help to break a fever and clear congestion.
Here are some more ideas:

Lemsip sachets with boiled water and honey...sleep lots, blow your nose lots, eat healthily :) :) xx

Try to convince yourself that you're not getting sick. It always works for me. Do everything normally, but make sure to drink plenty of water and get enough sleep.

drink lots of water. sleep as much as you can. consume as much vitamin C as possible.

Infectious Diseases Today
You can however do the following to relieve the symptoms of the cold:

• Bed rest
• Drink plenty of fluids
• Gargling or using throat sprays/lozenges
• Taking Tylenol for headache or fever

cod oil tablets

It all depends on how your body reacts. If you're system is weak, you could get a doozy of a cold and have to stay in bed and suffer with the sniffles for a while. Besides all the home remedies (ginger tea with lemon and honey, chicken soup... the homemade kind, not out of a can which has been proven to be helpful... something about something that comes out in the broth from the chicken bones... so just broth is fine too) you can help mask all the symptoms you have with over the counter meds (sudafed etc, which will make you at least feel human again). But the best thing is to isolate yourself for a few days, until the chance of being contageous is over. No one will thank you for passing on your cold to them :-(

Modern Man
Keep warm and breathe warm air for your nose, rest if you can but don't take long naps during the day, it will ruin you nights sleep. Good luck

vitamin C. Not the supplement but the singer. what ever happened to her anyways???

eat crushed ice
take medicine
take hot showers
get lots of rest
drink lots of fluids (water and sprite mostly)
blow your nose a lot
eat cough drops (halls are the best if you can get them)
i know that being sick is no fun. get better soon!

Cheyenne Richards
Get some rest, stay warm, drink cold medicine and have crackers and ginger ale it will help the stomach
