  • Also ginger is fantastic when you have a cold,it helps your immune system!

  • Agree with lots of the comments. Getting some rest, plenty of fluids and ensuring you are getting plenty of nutrients. I use organono oil and eucalyptus to ease symptoms.

  • I was coughing for a long time and colds took long to get better when a friend my mine asked have you tried the black liquid Echidnhea which is potent but works instantly especially for respitory tract infections . Tried it once and never looked back . I got my brother to get a bottle of the Blackmores one for half price this year for the cupboard when they had vitamins on sale.

  • Honey and lemon, with an actual slice of lemon rind in there as that’s where lots of the good anti microbial properties are.

  • l have lots of garlic in my meals when l have a cold and that seems to work,along with Vitamin C.

  • I know everyone has their one. Personally I find when I start to get a symptom I increase my intake of Echinacea this works for me.

  • healthy food, lots of vitamins. garlic and horseradish help. Vitamin C.

  • Make sure you get all your vitamins, get enough sleep, eat from all areas of the food pyramid and getting out in the sun for some exercise will help. honey and lemon in hot water helps.

  • Garlic, horseradish and vit c supplement tablets are good for colds.

  • Vitamin c and garlic are the two best natural products to help with this

  • Vitamin c lots of oranges

  • Vitamin D, so lots of fresh air and exercise. Fruit and veges too.

  • Fresh fruit and veggies are good to ward off colds

  • Wear socks and use vicks The cold has to take its course

  • Oh, ginger is great too!
