Natural Cold Remedies That Work
Natural cold remedies have grown popular as cold sufferers and caretakers seek treatments that are gentle and inexpensive. Some natural cold remedies can provide common cold relief by easing symptoms while you’re sick. There’s also a natural cold medicine that’s been proven to reduce the duration of the common cold.* Let’s address some symptom relievers first before turning to how to shorten a cold.
Natural Cold Remedies: Soothing Herbs
Some of the more popular and effective natural cold remedies are herbs that you can add to food or make into teas. Examples of herbal treatments for a cold include:
- Garlic, which has antiviral and antibacterial properties that can help fight infection.
- Ginger, which can ease inflammation and settle an upset stomach.
- Cayenne pepper, which can clear stuffed sinuses and aid circulation.
Natural Cold Remedies: Gargles and Rinses
Gargles and rinses are other types of effective natural cold remedies. For example:
- Gargling with warm salt water soothes a sore throat.
- Rinsing your nasal passages using a saline spray helps to clear out mucus and irritants so you can breathe easier.
