Cold Weather

So, I live in the MidWest & we just got hit with that terrible snow storm. I woke up this morning with drainage and a "somewhat" sore throat. Its the feeling of soreness that means..watch out, its only going to get worse!.. What kind of precautions should I take? Or do you think its just the weather making my sinus's go nuts? Since Ive been feeling like this I took a Multi Vit and Garggled Salt water & also just mouth wash to take away any other germs. Anything else i should do? Btw, Im a hair stylist.. so I CANNOT get sick!! Time is MONEY!

Re: Cold Weather

There's not much you can do once you actually catch a cold other than stay hydrated and well rested. Chicken soup has been proven to have some good antiviral properties, as does garlic (I take the pills) and cayenne pepper can help ease congestion. I think the trick is to keep your immune system strong through good nutrition, regular exercise and there are some alternative therapies that have shown promise with boosting immunity such as yoga, meditation, hypnosis, acupuncture, massage and alternating hot/cold water when you shower.
