10 Ways To Fight The Common Cold

Spray to breathe

Bunged-up noses are the worst cold symptoms. A nasal spray contracts enlarged nostril veins to open your nose for breathing.

Add spices to breakfast

Antioxidants promote immunity and reduce inflammation. Due to their antioxidant properties, scrambled eggs with cumin, garlic, turmeric, and chilli make a healthy breakfast.

Hot showers and face steams are key

Steam can reduce nasal congestion by loosening mucus.A hot shower or bath before bed might thin mucus and relieve congestion.

Exercise if you can

Exercise may temporarily relieve nasal congestion, and is the best natural, nasal decongestant

Drink sugary cordia

Make a hot blackcurrant and orange cordial and drink it all day.Sweetness activates the reward center in the brain, producing opioids that lessen coughing.

Keep the fluids flowing

Avoid dehydration by drinking fluids regularly to assist your nose and mouth clear bacteria and viruses when coughing, sneezing, and breathing.

Cold proof your bedroom

Nothing keeps you up at night like a scratchy cough or plugged nose. Propping your head up on a few pillows may help you cough by reducing mucous pouring down your throat.

Serve soup to your cold

Fill your soup with vitamin A, D, and zinc-rich vegetables to boost your immune system.

Stock up on great tissues

When your nose runs, you may grab a tea towel, sleeve, or kitchen roll. Instead, buy many balsam-scented tissues for each room.

Take your medicines with a double espresso

A typical cold makes you sleepy and sluggish without being sick. To combat fatigue, take ibuprofen, aspirin, or paracetamol with a double shot of espresso in the morning.
