5 Cold-Conquering Natural Remedies!
Achoo! Sniff! Honk!
You now have the “common cold” and these sounds are more familiar than you care to hear. Commercials air on television advertising the next best chemical concoction or slimy syrup promising better health. Your conscience tells you there must a better way. And, there is.
The Earth was designed with a wide variety of healing remedies that have powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antibacterial capabilities. When ingested alone or in combination with each other, any one of these items assist your body to begin its natural cleansing process. Each remedy helps strengthen your immune system and soothe your symptoms.
While these remedies give you relief in the short term, remember to focus on your nutrition plan to include fresh fruits and vegetables, mineral-rich alkaline water, and moderate exercise to help your body prevent illness.
The 5 Cold-Conquering Natural Remedies are:
1. Mineral-Rich Alkaline Water
Staying hydrated with clean water is essential. By treating your water with X2O, you infuse minerals that support thousands of chemical reactions in our bodies that promote immune health, vitamin metabolism, and even bone metabolism. An alkaline body fights off pathogens that cause disease, reduces inflammation, and helps the body eliminate wasteful acids. Drink at least 48 ounces of mineral-rich, alkaline water to effect healing.
Turmeric is the leading crusader against disease. It has been shown to protect and improve every organ of your body, owing its preventative and curative skills to its active ingredient curcumin. Turmeric relieves headache and serves as a decongestant to clear nasal passages. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric in your favorite tea or blend a Golden Milk healing tonic.
3. Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar has antimicrobial properties that help fight infections. It creates an overall detoxification effect in the body with naturally occurring antibiotic and antiseptic properties that fight germs and bacteria. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a half cup of water and stir. Optional: add one tablespoon of honey.
4. Mineral (Sea) Salt Gargle
A sea salt solution draws moisture out of the inflamed areas of the throat, primarily the tonsils, and cleans the area of bacteria. It also prevents harmful bacteria from growing further. Mix one half tablespoon of Celtic Sea Salt with 8 ounces of warm water and dissolve. Gargle with it for 10-30 seconds and spit out. Repeat 3 times daily.
Ginger soothes the mucus membranes of your larnyx and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that surpass modern synthetic medicines. It improves absorption of essential nutrients in the body and strengthens the immune system. Steep 2 tbsp. of freshly shredded or chopped ginger root in hot water and add honey to enhance flavor.
