So, while we take our prescribed medicines, it will soothe us well if we take natural remedies to complement or replace the medicines if possible. Here's the list:

  • Salt water or vinegar gargle with water. 3 - 4x a day of lukewarm water with salt or vinegar can ease that itchy sore throat.
  • Hot tea. To ease the congestion, a steam from hot tea will surely help.
  • Ginger hot drink. This serves the same effect of hot tea.
  • Vitamin C. Taking vitamin C can help prevent you from getting the cold virus but should you caught it, the cold duration can be at least reduced.
  • Body massage. For a more relaxed body, a nice body massage can help you rest well.
  • Bed rest.Your body to recover better must require due rest. So, free yourself from work or other stressful stuffs and doze well.
  • Liquid. Keep hydrated when you are sick. Keep your load of water or juice handy.
