The common cold is a virus, or rather, lots of viruses-over 200, to be more specific. As a virus it is not curable, and since there are so many strains there’s not a way to make a vaccine like there is with the flu.
When your body tries to fight off the virus the symptoms pop up, like coughing, sneezing, a sore throat, general congestion and mild fatigue.
With no cure in sight for the cold or the flu, over-the-counter treatments can at best bring symptom relief or shorten the duration of those symptoms. Or you can take the natural approach. The home remedy below may help you feel better along the way.
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 2 cups of water
- 1 onion
- Boil water in a pot.
- Cut the onion into small pieces and then put it on the boiling water.
- Remove the pot from the heat after 15 minutes of boiling.
- Let is sit for another 10 minutes then strain the resulting mixture before adding the honey.
- Mix it well and add the lemon juice.
