4. Think Herbal Tea

Hot herbal beverages are the best thing ever for helping your body fight off a cold. Teas are easy to digest, many have anti-viral compounds, and don’t stress the digestive system. Some of the best teas to drink to beat a cold are:

  • Peppermint
  • Ginger
  • Schisandra
  • Echinacea
  • Garlic
  • Turmeric
  • Pau d’Arco

 

5. Avoid Upsetting Your Stomach

Some types of foods only cause your body to work harder and when you have a cold, and this is not a good idea. To be sure that your body devotes its strength to kicking the cold, avoid the following while you are sick:

  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Meats (except for fish)
  • Dairy
  • Wheat
  • Corn
  • Soy
