Have you come down with the dreaded common cold during the holiday season? While it is always recommended to rest your body, drink a lot of water and eat chicken soup, some of the less common home remedies listed below may also help expedite the recovery process.
If chicken soup isn't really your thing, how about a bottle of kombucha? Adding probiotics to your diet is good for your health anyway, and consuming probiotics during a period of sickness may help give your body the immune system boost that it needs.
For other common cold home remedies, try ground black pepper, coconut oil, and fermented cod liver oil. If you have a raw red onion and some honey lying around, you can also create some onion honey syrup to soothe your sore throat and treat your other cold symptoms.
