I think I can feel a cold coming.. I feel like I could start sneezing at any minute, where my throat and nose meet it sort of burns, my eyes are real heavy, and it burns to breathe in my nose a bit.

So what can I do to chase this cold off? Or at least minimize it's length?! SD bday party is in 2 weekends and I have a TON of stuff to do for it this weekend! Help :(

Vitamin c. Airborne has worked well for us. There is another know that is similar but I can't remember the name it comes in a pink packet.

Vitamin C and D, one time I had a horrible cold and my husband made me this garlic lemon honey tea with cactus and my nose was clear in 15 min and my throat felt better. He said it was a homemade Mexican remedy. Mexicans have the best home remedies lol.

We use neem.  It is antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial.  Your local health food store should have it.  I usually buy the Natures Way brand.  I also have a spray bottle with lugols iodine and colloidal silver as a throat spray when someone gets a sore throat.

Start taking 4 neem capsules every hour or two.  It should prevent it from taking hold and you should feel better in 24-48  hours.  Keep taking neem as long as you have any symptoms.
