The best way to remove symptoms of a cold is to remove the infection causing them.
For some immediate relief, suck SLOWLY on a teaspoon of honey.
The human body is capable of fighting infection on a much higher level than is normally possible. You access the normal level of resistance when you have an orange that contains some vitamin C. You access an additional (and more effective) level of resistance when you choose to supplement more vitamin C than the body would normally be able to get from food.
The more vitamin C you give your body during an infection, the more effectively the body fights the infection; excess is excreted. You need to be fairly strict in taking the vitamin C since the body cannot store it!
Ensure the vitamin C supplement you get contains "Bioflavonoids", which is needed to enable the vitamin C to be absorbed.
You should continue such treatment even when you start to feel better, until about 2 days after symptoms have gone, because some infection remains unnoticed by you within the body for a while, which can start to grow again. The third day that you feel a lot better, end by slowly reducing the dosage over some days.
For a significant infection, take 6 grams of Vitamin C per day (2 grams 3 times a day), but reduce the dosage if you encounter any diarrhoea.
Also take the herb “Echinacea” (but only if you are taking the additional vitamin C), which boosts the immune system - but do not take for more than 5 days.
Garlic will protect against bacterial infection. The best type of deodorized garlic is Quest Kyolic Liquid garlic, a quarter teaspoon measure (1.25 ml) three times a day.
Keep yourself warm, since when the body gets cold, this causes the immune system to become less efficient.
I hope you feel better soon.
