Hey Brother Kweli, I hope you're feeling better.
Ten drops of olive leaf extract and oregeno oil on the tongue will get a rid of a cold fast. Also drink plenty of water
and SUGAR-FREE orange juice
. Drinking liquids, preferrably water, rids the body of toxins, bacteria, and other unnecessary waste.
But as I always say, the the best medicine is preventive medicine. Eating a well-balanced diet (loading up on fresh fruits and vegetables) everyday prevents colds. Also, eat an orange, lemon (you can squirt lemon juice on your food and in your water), or a grapefruit at least once day. Citrus fruits are nature's natural astringents.
Other ways to prevent colds:Wash your hands before eating or drinking.
You'd be surprised at how careless people are about washing their hands before popping things into their mouths. I once saw a cashier at the grocery store eating potato chips out of the bag while handling people's groceries and exchanging money in the cashier line. YUK! She was really putting her immune system to work.
When outdoors, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
Use your arm, rather than your hands, to cover a sneeze or cough, because we use our hands to greet people.
Keep hand sanitizer handy.
