Everybody gets cold. Treating them isn’t always
yummy, but I can show you a way that will work really well. I’m Lauren Roy from Sugar
Hollow Farm in Phillipston, Mass. If you feel a cold coming on, that’s the best time to
start taking care of it. When you get that little feeling and you think you’re getting
a cold, you’re getting a cold. The first thing you want to do is boost your body’s immune
system. You can do that with garlic. Garlic is the strongest antibacterial, antifungal
that has ever been created. You’re going to take a couple of cloves of garlic and put
them in your teacup and steep them for ten minutes. To that, you’re going to add the
juice of one lemon, as well as two tablespoons of honey, which also have antibacterial and
antifungal properties. It also helps mask the taste of the garlic. But nobody said everything’s
going to taste good. If you’re getting that chill you can add some ginger to it because
ginger has natural heating abilities. Put that all in your cup and let it steep for
a good ten minutes and drink it down. You’re going to have to repeat this a couple of times
during the day, and you’re going to have to drink the whole thing, you can add as much
honey as you want to mask the taste of the garlic, but the garlic is very important.
You have your antibacterial properties, you have your antifungal properties, your vitamin
C, you can add something like chamomile tea and catnip tea if you’re having trouble sleeping.
You do this at the very beginning of a cold and it will shorten the duration of the cold.
