Do you suffer from acute viral nasopharyngitis, or acute coryza?
What cold remedies have you tried?
Yes, I am talking about the “Common Cold”; a highly contagious, infectious viral disease of your upper respiratory system.
Some of the common symptoms consist of:
Although these symptoms are usually mild and limited in duration most people resort to over the counter drugs for relief. Some even resort to professional medical help and may miss school or work until the symptoms pass.
The cost of the common cold in terms of money spent on cold remedies as well as hours of work lost can be considerable but there is a cheaper way; a natural way.
There are several different natural home remedies that can be tried using food ingredients commonly found at home.
Apple Cider Vinegar can be used as an effective cough remedy, sinus remedy, allergy remedy, flu remedy and overall cold treatment.
Apple cider vinegar can go to work almost immediately when taken internally. Initially it works by thinning the mucus in your body which can be a very welcome effect as I am sure you will agree.
Secondly, as I am sure you are aware, the cold virus like most maladies, will put your body into a slightly acidic state (see my pH Balance page for more information) which will compromise your immune system and slow your recovery.
Apples cider vinegar has an alkalizing effect on your body which is needed to bring it back to its normal healthy status; a healthy body is slightly alkaline by nature and performs best in that state.
ACV is also known to help kill bacteria and viruses.
Try taking a tablespoon of vinegar and some honey mixed in a hot cup of water or tea to soothe your cough, your sore throat and other cold symptoms you may be experiencing.
You will find suffering through a cold easier and quicker by adding some vinegar to your "treatment".
