How to Stop Colds FAST!

Here it comes. You can feel it.

That achy feeling, sore throat, headache.

A cold is on its way.

As usual, colds pick the worst time to show up.

They always strike right before the holidays, or before an event like a wedding, or when you are scrambling to get something done.

Fortunately, there are some easy ways to shave days off your cold, so you can feel better fast.

Here are some of my favorites. 

Here is how you kick a cold:

Eating Before You Are Sick: Add more protein to your diet to get the extra amino acids to boost your immune system. As always, kick sugar out of your diet: it ruins your immune system. Both Chinese and Indian cultures place high emphasis on "tonifing" soups. These, like your grandmother's chicken soup recipe for a cold, act to increase the body's ability to fight disease.

Choose fresh vegetables, with emphasis on garlic and onion, chicken, or fish to boost protein content. Add plenty of spices: turmeric, thyme, and basil, all have antimicrobial properties and help to support the body's own healing mechanism.

Eating While You Are Sick: When you are sick, I recommend that people don’t eat when they are not hungry. This is part of trusting your body and what it is telling you. Fasting is a time-honored way to get rid of a cold fast, but it is not for everyone. If you feel like eating, then choose simple foods like soups and broths.

Slow Down: Being busy and stressed weakens your immune system. That makes you more susceptible to colds – and it allows colds to linger for longer. Especially in winter, try to slow down and cut your stress levels where you can.  

Sweat: As the weather turns cold, take advantage of any opportunity to enjoy a steam-room or sauna. Not only does this help with detoxification and shortening colds, it also allows you a chance to relax and take time off.

Sleep: With more nighttime and less daytime it would make sense we sleep longer in the winter. Sleep impacts health in so many ways. Getting the right amount of sleep for you is essential to your health and your body's ability to fight disease.

Herbs and Vitamins: There are many herbs such as echinacea, turmeric, olive leaf and others that promote healing and make colds shorter and less painful. 

Health and Happiness,
