Garlic, ginger, or lemon balm normally work well

Garlic and onions. Lemons, limes, and other citrus fruits are also excellent which is why people always recommend fresh lemon juice in tea with raw honey. I prefer the taste of limes to lemons.

Nonsense! Citric acid is full of Vitamin C. It is used in a great many medicines for the common cold. Citrus fruit is practically essential for health!

I was not being rude to you,Winterleaf. So let me explain.Not all Acids work in the same way. Aspirin is an Acid, Your very DNA is an Acid! That's what the A stands for; Acid.

I was suffering from a bad cold a couple of weeks ago, a very knowledgeable member of this site who I shall not mention the name of in case she doesn't want to be flooded with mail (but who has my eternal gratitude) recommended sage tea.

I can honestly say it flushed out my illness, whilst it tasted awful, it worked!

As for citric acid being bad for you; just one piece of advice. If you are drinking it in the morning, brush your teeth first and ensure not to brush straight away afterwards. It can erode the enamel, ensure (like you should anyway!) to brush at least once mor ein the day after suffiecient time has passed.

Tea made of with any combination of the following; cinnamon, ginger, clove, peppermint, yarrow, elder flower, hyssop, rose hips, or chamomile. You can also try a premade cold teas found at many markets and retail stores.

Adding honey to tea is great however I suggest eating it raw to get the full healing properties. You can use it as a topping for toast.

Lemon and other citrus fruits are also helpful to boost your vitamin C intake, so consume as much as you can.

Broth soups with lots of veggies, sage, basil, and garlic also help to boost the immune system and keep the body hydrated.

Use a warm salt water rise to cleanse the mouth and throat as well as to sooth a sore throat.

Lastly consume a mixture of 1 table spoon baking soda in 4-8 ounces of water. Consume at least 4 servings a few hours apart the first day you feel sick. Then consume 2 servings the second day followed by one serving each day until you are better. A healthy body has an alkaline pH and often when the body is sick it is due to an acidic pH. Baking soda is a natural way to bring the body's pH back to the correct level.
