Head cold

OK experts. How do you get over a head cold?

I got a head cold this last week. I kicked most of it. I still have a little bit of the sniffles. Any brilliant way to kick it?

Vitamins, light exercise, drinking epic amounts of water, and sleep.

Immediately resort to chemical warfare. Hit back hard with pseudophed to dry out your sinuses to deprive germs of a place to fester. Lots of water, rest, vitamin c, Zicam and then nyquil before sleeping. Zicam zinc treatment helps clear crap out of the back of your throat, but just before you do that first gargle w 120 proof knob creek bourbon. Just half a shot glass, the alcohol whacks the germs. I've actually cured a sore throat with it. Regular aspirin, as an antipyrhettic to hit fever. And the usual, feed a cold, starve a fever.

As mentioned above, but try 2tbs of organic Apple cider vinegar and 2 tsp honey in about 8oz of water a couple times a day for the throat and head

Blazing hot salsa in chicken noodle soup with tortilla chips. Clears the head brilliantly. Add all vitamins, mild exercise, lots of water, etc.

Prevention with these



Personally I have started to line my nares with either petroleum jelly or vick's vapor rub. It seems to work for me. I read somewhere that the guy that developed petroleum jelly would eat a teaspoon or a tablespoon everyday.
