This always works for me without fail. When you ever feel a cold starting to creep up on you (i.e. when your throat isnt really sore yet but is kind of scratchy and on the way to sore, and/or when your body feels fatigued like it does when you have a cold, or any other "a cold is on its way" symptoms), do this and you will hopefully defeat the cold/flu before it takes full hold of you:
chop up 4 - 5 large garlic cloves, drizzle on a little olive oil, then pour yourself a large glass of organic oj, take spoonfuls of the chopped garlic down with big gulps of the oj until all garlic is finished, then wear some warm pj's, set the temperature of your room to comfortable -(not too cold or hot), crawl under your blankies and get a good 10 hours of sleep.
I guarantee that when you will wake up you will have kicked that cold's ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This never fails for me
. But the trick is to do this when you feel the cold coming on, not when you already have a full blown cold. If you wait until you have a full blown cold, it may not bee as effective (though I am sure it will still help your immune system fight the cold).
