10 Ways To Combat A Cold Before It Takes Hold
Don’t buy over-the-counter cough medicine
Save money and purchase a bottle of honey. It works just as well, if not better, than the over-the-counter stuff. Mix about one to two tablespoons of honey into a cup of tea or eat it straight. This is all you need to soothe a cough.
Take a day off of work if you can
As soon as you feel the cold starting to come on, stay home and rest. This will help your body fight off the cold, especially within the first six hours. If you have to go to work, bring plenty of alcohol-based hand gel with you to disinfect your work area and yourself, stay away from co-workers and wash your hands.
