    Do you know of any natural remedies for the common cold?

    Yes, I do.There is an acupuncture point on the lateral side of your leg that will increase the amount of the white blood cells,thus increasing your immune system ability to fight infections.
    Just massage the outside part of your leg and your cold will be soon history.

    My favourites are hot honey and lemon and a good amount of rest. Also whiskey in the drink if you drink alcohol.

    My impression is that people get colds when they are stressed or run down, so it could be the bodies' way of asking you to rest?

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Love and blessings,

    Drinking plenty of water and taking vitamin "C".  I never have colds because if I feel the slightest evidence of a cold starting to come, like a sore throat or runny nose, I squeeze organic lemons in my water and eat the pulp.  And just like that there are no more symptoms. 
    For those who waited until they have a full blown cold.  Eating lemons all day and drinking plenty of purified water will take your cold away.  I've done and people I recommend this to tell me they can't believe how much they feel better the same or next day.
    Try it - you'll feel better, I know!

    The common cold is nothing to take lightly, yet in most instances it is not a life or death condition. Despite it is not a dangerous condition, you still want to find home remedies for common cold. The older generation used to concoct “hot toddies,” which is a mixture of lemon, honey, hot tea, and whiskey as home remedies for common colds. The solution worked, yet as the years went on, people started thinking they were drinking mixed drinks. The hot toddies are tasty, but they are designed to treat the common cold and not to drink as a cocktail. If you mix a hot toddy, lie in the bed under heavy blankets so that you can sweat out the cold. Get plenty of rest. This is one of the best common cold cure.

    Another great remedy that I have used and works is Frankincense.   Depending on your symptoms its a really great way to get rid of colds and help breathing especially when you are finding it tough to sleep.  Here is hub to check out for more information.


    Check it out and if you have any of the symptoms it might be worth a try.

    Chicken soup has been shown to aid in cold recovery. Be sure to include lots o' garlic.

    Rest, Rest, and Rest - elevate your help to help with sinus drainage annoyances

    Lots of fluids

    Use a humidifier by your bed at night if your house is dry from heat. Colds thrive in dry warm conditions.

    Multi Vitamin

    and lastly rest some more.

    Well the common cold is caused by a virus. Virus' and bacteria thrive in an acidic environment. The best way to get rid of a cold is to get your body alkaline. Which means your body is oxygen rich and bacteria and virus' cant live in this environment. Cayenne pepper, lemon juice, a sweetener,(not sugar) ginger should help. Xylitol is probably the best Its kills a lot of bacteria, you just cant take too much because it will clean you out.

    Yes, I do.Turmeric is the best remedy for common cold and my favorite remedy for cold.I take powder directly.But if you can't take you can mix it with honey or jaggery.Mix half a tea spoon of turmeric powder with little honey and take twice in a day.This should be taken once in the morning on an empty stomach and second dose before going to bed.It acts like an antibiotic.
    If you are used to take allopathy medicine often,then you have to keep patience before getting result,otherwise cold goes within a day or two.I prefer Ayurvedic medicine over allopathy due to lots of side effects of synthetic drugs.I take turmeric powder in fever,cough and cold.Turmeric powder is useful in tonsils problem and diabetes also.So,try this kitchen spice to get rid of many problems.
