Cold season isn't over yet - don't let it ruin your Valentine's

As I (Charlie) sit working from home today with a horrible cold, I thought it would be fitting to share some natural ways to ward off that nasty little bug:

  • Gargle once a day. Japanese researchers found that a daily gargling with water reduces your cold risk. People who gargled with water were 36 percent less likely to be struck down when compared with non-garglers.
  • Drink your liquids. Hot tea, cold tea and simple water keep your body hydrated and able to better fight unwanted infections.
  • Take a sauna. A recent study in Germany found that people who took a sauna twice a week were 50% less likely to get a cold.
  • Wash your hands!!!!!
  • Get plenty of sleep. It is important to get enough sleep to maintain your normal routine. That means you need even more to keep your immune system at its best
What do you do to keep that nasty bugger at bay? Let us know........ We all want to make it through to spring, cold free. Till next time AAACCCHHHHOOOO!
