Conquering the Common Cold


By: Mari Peckham

What do we know about the Common Cold?

So, what do we do? Lay back with a box of tissue, pop a couple of cold tabs and wait it out? Not necessarily! Doctors who specialize in self-care medicine say that there is a lot more that we can do to get through a cold comfortably, and possibly more quickly! Here is some of the best advice that experts have to offer on the subject.

Studies conducted at the University of Wisconsin found that cold sufferers taking 500 milligrams of vitamin C four times a day suffered from about half as many symptoms (coughing, sneezing. etc) as those not taking the vitamin.

Best way to get it? Drink it! Orange, grapefruit, and cranberry juices are excellent sources of vitamin C.

Looking for alternatives to drugs? Try these herbs and teas that contain special properties that are natural antagonists against colds!

A cold may be something that we have to live with, and through, but finding ways to make the best of it will help you get back on your feet in record time.
