Cold remedies are almost as common as the common cold, but are they effective?

Nothing can cure a cold, but there are some remedies that might help ease your symptoms and keep you from feeling so miserable.

Here’s a look at some common cold remedies to speed up your recovery and keep the cold away!

Arbonne Herbal Tea, Citrus or Pomegranate Fizz Stick, with a stick of Cinnamon and a slice of lemon.

If you catch a cold, you can expect to be sick for 7-10 days.  That doesn’t mean you have to be miserable. Besides getting enough rest and hydration and these remedies might help you feel better:

  • Stay hydrated. Water – warm lemon water with honey helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration. Add a hydration sachet to your water bottle as these contain electrolytes. (see info below)
  • Avoid alcohol, coffee and caffeinated sodas, which can make dehydration worse.

  • Rest. Your body needs to heal.  Turn off the phone, step away from the lap top.  Set your alarm to go off at 9.30pm.. start getting ready for bed.  Read a book and get in night time sleepy mode!  It really helps.  If your favourite TV programme is a must to watch then record it and chill out on your day off and have a back to back session of catching up in your favourite programmes!
  • Soothe a sore throat. Gargle warm soluble paracetamol.  It gets in the system quicker and has a better effect than a tablet.  If you can’t stand the taste then try Tesco’s own!  It’s got a sweeter taste to it.

This was really easy to make, I roasted two small sweet potatoes (you could use one medium), peeled off the skin when they were cooked and whizzed them up in a blender with 1/4 can (100ml/3/4 cup) coconut milk, 1/2 pint of vegetable stock, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes and 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.  A perfect portion for one person.

Just add more of each ingredient if making more for the the family!
