    What are the best remedies for the common cold?

    A great remedy I came across recently is using apple cider vinegar.  You put 2 tablespoons of it in 6-8 oz water, with 2 tablespoons of honey, and you can heat it up in the microwave.

    I've had a bad cold for a week now and couldn't shake it off, but this drink helped clear my sinuses and really took the edge off my cold. I've started having one cup of this a day, (I'm sure you can have more if you want), and feeling much better.

    A remedy that i use and is very effective is, in two cups water add 1 tablespoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder, pinch cardamon powder, small piece of menthol crystal. boil for 3 minutes, drink hot. try atleast thrice a day.

    I've always been a fan of good old vitamin C - As soon as I feel a cold coming on I up my OJ intake. As a rule, if I do get sick it's usually at least a day or two shorter than those around me.

    Drinking plenty of herbal tea when you first begin to catch a cold and it will knock it out in 1 to 2 days if you just drink a lot of it.

    A very effective remedy that I always use to cure common cold is to boil in a cup of water a cinnamon stick and a clove. Leave the tea to brew about 10 minutes. Then mix the tea with a fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey. Drink this 3 times daily. I usually get rid of the cold in 2-3 days.

    i hope you are already well! the hotest cayenne you can get has been a mainstay for myself and family. you can get 160,000 heat units from azure foods. we have had an amazing "hot sauce" remedy from Doc Joey, the former executive director of research from the WNHO-it cures everything. i will see if i can find it and email it to you. drmichaelfitzpatrick@gmail.com
