    I never get sick, this is my first time being sick in about 5 years.

    How do you get rid of your colds?

    I took some thing called Orange-C, which is some kind of vitamin c or mineral supplement.

    What works for you?

      What works for me is mead mixed with lemon juice and pure honey simmered like mulled wine, head cold cleared

      I eat garlic.  Bits of it raw, or else cooked garlic.   And although I still get colds sometimes, it seems to work for me most of the time.  Just takes days of time and tooth-brushing to get rid of the bad breath.ha.  (I've taken it in pill form before, but it doesn't seem as effective).

      Unfortunately there is still no cure for the common cold. Vitamins will boost your immune system but be careful. Some vitamins can be toxic if taken in large quantities. Vitamin C is safe. Your body excretes all amounts that are not needed with no more ill effects other than frequent urination and possibly diarrhea. Good health to you.

    Place your head very carefully one side of the rail and your body the other and wait for the 10:32 to Ohio.  The only certain cure.  Everything purchased is a paliative to keep the business big.  Vitamin C to boost your immune system is the only way - the Nobel prize winning expert in that field said to take loads and loads and had his rep destroyed by the Chemical cold cure industry.

    I will mega-dose Vitamin D3 (50,000 IUs p/day, once in the morning once in the afternoon for two days) mega-doze Vitamin C and consume 3-4 TABLEspoons of virgin coconut oil throughout the day.

    Coconut oil is a unique type of saturated fat which is made up of Medium Chain Triglycerides which are actually anti-microbial in nature.  The body processes these fatty acids differently than other fats and oils as well in that it's used as a direct energy source by the liver upon uptake instead of being processed into the in/out energy management system that is comprised of the rest of the body's fatty tissues.  Good stuff.  Read "The Coconut Oil Miracle" if you don't believe me.

    If you don't want to get the book, visit SuperHuman Radio and search for "Coconut Oil" and you can hear an interview with the author.  The stuff is like magic.  But don't tell Big Pharma!  They'd rather you be scared of it because it's a "saturated" fat.  OOOOOOOhhhhhh.

    take some Kiwi it's the highest form of natural vitamin C, not oranges.
    take some vitamin E capsules
    get olive oil - good fats will / (let's say possible) transport the mucus from the cold downwards so you urinate it out as you are drinking lots of water.

    good luck

    Ziccam works great for me.  Does not cure, does shorten the duration.

    Garlic can boost your immune system, making you less susceptible to colds. If you start getting sick and catch it right away, try taking Boiron Oscillococcinum. It's sold in most drug stores and works to shorten the duration of both the cold and flu. Usually, though, you just have to do what your mother used to say: get plenty of rest, drink lots of liquid and wait it out.
