A cold is a messed-up virus caused by certain germs that enter your body. Mostly, you may get this cold from somebody else, or you may simply get it by not properly observing the weather.

It can mess you up in many ways. So, today, I’ve managed to come up with a way to suppress or get rid of the effects of a cold.
This will be a mixture of honey, a lemon and ginger. What you will do is, put 3 cups of water in a boiling pot. After that, cut two slices of the lemon and add it to the boiling water then wait for one minute. After that, add a teaspoon of honey into the boiling water then cut a small piece of ginger and put it in the boiling water. Wait until the water boils entirely. After it has finished boiling; you need to take out the pieces of lemon and the piece of ginger. In this, you will have formed the honey concoction. All you’ll need to do is take this every day, and it will kill the effects in one-week maximum. What happens is that the concoction opens your throat and part of your sinuses allowing you to get some air into your system. On the first days, it will stop the coughing.

Place your head on a pillow and tilt your neck backward. This will force you to face up. This helps in the clearance of the sinuses by allowing it to flow down to your throat.
