| | Re: Home remedies for a cold
I am a RN and have found that supplements do help boost the immune system. It just takes a little time and dedication. It doesn;t happen overnight. My son has had numerous bouts with strep throat and he was at the point where surgery was highly recommended. He has a few things, always on stock, in his dorm room and he has become an avid believer. He knows as soon as he starts with symptoms of cold or soar throat. Take a good multivitamin 2x daily, cellwise or other antioxidant with A,C and E to fight free radicals...1-2x daily, and Zinc losenges, Vitamin C lozenges. Regular exercise helps build up the immune system, too! If you get a fever than you need to get to the doctor for antibiotic but- supplements and a multi-faceted approach is the key to strenghtening your immune system. Cut out the junk in your diet....infuse with healthy soups, vege's, fruit and high fiber. Also, a good Probiotic is highly recommended with high fiber to clean out your intestine...this is key to absorbing all the healthy nutrients!
