If you’ve already been bitten by the cold bug, no worries. Simply start eating raw garlic to overcome a cold in half the normal time.
Drink green tea. Good-bye coffee, soda, and lemonade. Hello green tea. Drink green tea daily during cold season to give your immune system the boost it needs to avoid the cold bug. You’ll be surprised by how well this works for avoiding or overcoming colds.
Boil your toothbrush. If you even have a hint that a cold is coming on, boil your toothbrush, and continue to boil it daily during cold season. This way you will destroy any cold germs that get trapped between the bristles making it easier for you to overcome a cold.
Open the windows. There is nothing like being confined in a room with cold germs lingering in the air. Whether at work or home, open the windows so the air can circulate and fresh air can enter the room. Otherwise, you’ll be forced to inhale all the germs from the coughing and sneezing of people around you.
