The Common Cold

Catch a cold? Let it go faster by following these tips:
  • Rest
  • Drink a lot of fluids, stay well-hydrated
  • Up your vitamin C: take 1-4 grams per day to help make your cold less severe and not last as long
  • Echinacea: take 3-5 ml (milliliters) in juice or tincture form every 2 hours as soon as you feel the cold coming on
  • Zinc lozenges: use lozenges that provide 13-25 mg of zinc gluconate, zinc gluconate-glycine, or zinc acetate every 2 hours to help stop the virus you have and lessen the amount of time you have the cold.
