.Natural cold remedies;
The main focus for not getting sick should be on getting yourself as healthy as possible all the time. A healthy immune system can defend itself against most invaders. If you maintain a healthy eating plan, you should be giving your immune system the support and nutrients it needs to do that job.
Ginger Tea with Lemon and Cinnamon; Ginger is excellent for colds and sore throats.Take it regularly and as soon as you feel the symptoms coming on.. I love to make a tea with a few slices of fresh ginger, a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of cinnamon to keep me healthy, especially through the winter. These ingredients also help to stimulate the digestive system, so this tea is helpful any time. If the ginger and lemon are too tart for you, try adding a tiny bit of splenda, maple syrup, brown rice syrup or another unrefined sweetener.
Garlic; Raw garlic is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and an all-around health superstar. The best way to get its full power is to have a clove raw every day.add it to salads. homemade hummus or salsa.
Sugar can knock your immune system out of commission because it drains your body of nutrients and artificially stimulates you. The same thing is true of alcohol and caffeine, so if you have either on a regular basis it would be a good idea to cut them out, too.
Anything healthy you do to boost your immune system is negated if you keep eating lots of sugar or other unhealthy foods.
Tumeric; I love this herb. I cut a piece of the dry root, about the size of your little finger nail and keep it in the back of my mouth and lightly chew on it for as long as I can. Tumeric is a natural antiseptic. Helped me a lot with a dry cough too, the one that keeps you up at night. I usually chew it with a pepper corn and some cardamom seeds if I have a bad cough.
