- Cayenne: Cayenne pepper has a high vitamin C content (making it a natural choice for a cold), as well as vitamins A and B, calcium, and potassium. Cayenne also increases the circulation in the body. You may take it in capsule form, taking two 40,000 heat units (950 mg.), or as a liquid, taking four drops of the 200,000 heat units. Place a few drops in water and gargle with it every 15-30 minutes to make a sore throat disappear.
- "Good" bacteria: Increase "good" bacteria, such as acidophilus and bifidus, which can be found in yogurt or kefir.
- Go green: Eat dark leafy green vegetables like kale, Swiss chard, and spinach that provide vitamins B12, folic acid, potassium, and vitamins A, C, and K, which supports a healthy immune system.
- Acid and alkaline: Keep your internal acid/alkaline chemistry balanced by squeezing a half lemon into a cup of hot water to break up congestion, stimulate digestion, and create an alkaline or healing pH chemistry in the body.
