Upper respiratory diseases, such as colds and the flu, account for nearly a quarter of all doctor visits. Of course, the best treatment for cold symptoms like a sore throat and a stuffy nose is always rest. But while you’re lying on the couch watching the soaps grab a bottle of REAL apple cider vinegar and take it with you into the bathroom. This potent vinegar is a natural antiseptic with the power to zap cold germs and unstuffed your clogged nose.
HOW-TO: mix 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a glass of water and gargle it.
Note: It’s important to use real apple cider vinegar and not that junk in the store that has no life properties whatsoever. Braggs Natural Cider Vinegar is the real thing and I know for a fact that it is available in both Publix and Kroger grocery stores. Check your favorite grocery to see if they have it or order it on trusted sites like Amazon.
A Swedish study indicates that folks who took probiotic supplements for two months were 42% less likely to call in sick with colds and stomach flu.
