Natural Ways To Fight the Common Cold




In the past few years, people have become more aware of what they’re putting in their bodies. Even in children, foods and chemicals have been linked to physical and mental disabilities. Many mothers have started paying a lot more attention to what their kids are eating. Harsh medicines are no different during the cold season. Sometimes picking up a medicine at the drugstore can feel overwhelming because of all the foreign ingredients. Here are a few natural remedies you can use to help you and your children recover quickly this cold season.

Echinacea Purpurea
Echinacea is flower that is manufactured in pill form and can has been found in many studies to help prevent colds and shorten the duration of them. You can buy echinacea purpurea online and take it as a daily supplement to help prevent illness. If you do get sick, it has been shown to lessen the duration of sickness by about 1.4 days. If your kids don’t like taking pills, consider smashing one up and mixing it into a smoothie. The vitamins in fruits and vegetables, as well as the liquid of the smoothie will also help you heal faster. You can even throw some extra nutrition into it, like an all-natural protein powder and some spinach, if you don’t feel like eating but need to boost your nutrition. 

Take Your Vitamins
The age-old adage still stands -- if you’re sick, take your Vitamin C. If you’re feeling too ill to drink juice or eat oranges, take some Vitamin C supplements. Be sure you’re also getting enough iron and protein, which will help keep your body strong even when you’re feeling weak. While fruit can sound more appetizing to eat while you’re sick, it’s important to get some of the nutrients contained in vegetables. Antioxidants help with cell renewal, and broccoli and sweet potatoes are both full of them. 

Drink Tea, Not Coffee
While it may be tempting to drink caffeine to help you feel better -- especially if you have to get back up on your feet sooner than you’d like to -- it’s better to drink hot tea. Add some lemon and honey to help soothe a sore throat. Typically green tea is a better option than black tea. In addition to the natural nutrients in tea, and the soothing power of a hot beverage, drinking plenty of liquids will help your body fight the infection.
