How To Treat Cure Common Cold Quickly

Here in this article Let's look at 5 natural and effective ways that may assist in curing Common Cold quickly.

1. Drink Warm Liquids

Warm liquids like chicken soup, tea or simple warm water helps in relieving stuffiness/ congestion and enables mucus to flow easily
 
2. Take Steam Treatment

Inhaling steam works as a great remedy in loosening up your stuffy nose. Just Hold your head over a pot of boiling water and breathe slowly through your nose. But be careful not to burn yourself. 

Once done, you can cover you face with a towel so as to gradually decrease the face temperature.

3. Blow Nose Often (the right way)

Runny nose is one of the most common symptoms of common cold, hence It's important to blow your nose regularly rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. 

The more you'll blow out, the better you'll feel. But avoid blowing your nose too hard as the high pressure force can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, resulting in earache. 

4. Take Vitamin C Supplements

Vitamin C is featured to boost immune function in our body. Some studies show that taking vitamin C supplements may reduce the duration of colds

"A 2013 review of studies noted that regular supplementation (1 to 2 grams daily) reduced the duration of a cold in adults by 8 percent and in children by 14 percent. It also reduced the severity of colds overall."

5. Give Rest To Your Body 

When we keep working, our body distributes it's stored energy to properly perform all tasks that we're involved in. Staying warm and proper resting helps your body to direct all its energy towards the immune battle against the common cold, and may assist in quicker recovery.


Conclusion

Common cold can be extremely taxing for anyone and all of us wants to get rid of it as quickly as possible. 

If you take vitamin C regularly, your cold symptoms may disappear earlier. In addition to that drinking warm liquids, taking steam treatments, blowing nose often and taking proper rest can may help treating the symptoms of common cold like pain, coughing, congestion, stuffy nose, quickly.
