It may just be a lousy head cold, but it sure can make you feel miserable! For most of us, the moment we feel the sniffles coming on, accompanied by that nagging discomfort in our throat, we reach for the nearest cold or flu medicine we have on hand.
Perhaps though, nature could also provide us with a few great remedies for cold symptoms (just like how life insurance companies provide us life insurance rates by age). Let’s take a quick look at three of them.
Lemon And Honey
Both renowned for their healing properties, a warm lemon and honey drink will not only comfort you in your pitiful state, but will also help your body to naturally heal from the inside out. Simply place a generous teaspoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon in a nice big mug and stir in hot water, after that put your feet up and enjoy!
Stay Warm And Rest Up
Sometimes all our body needs to recover from a cold is chance to catch it’s breath. So cancel your calendar for the next 24 hours, put the heating on, stay in your pajamas and put your feet up. Tomorrow morning may very well have you feeling well on the mend!
Enjoy A Hot Steamy Shower
Feeling completely bunged up makes for a miserable mood. Taking a warm shower can provide moisture for your nasal passages and help your body to relax.
Granted you may choose to reach for your cold medicine anyway, but the above three tips may also play their part in having you as right as rain in no time!
