It seems like everyone in Rockford has some sort of a cold right now - a runny nose, dry eyes, or scratchy throat. How about trying a home remedy that works?!

The highly reputable and highly knowledgeable Nashville Kat not only has the inside news on everything Nashville, she also has a plethora of home remedies.

Nashville Kat called me after finding out I was having voice issues to share a this "always works" trick to beating a cold. "Usually you would do this when you feel a cold starting, but these will definitely kick its butt", she added.

 

First of all, forget about over-the-counter medicine options. This is 100% safe and easy to do.

You'll need baking soda, and water for the first step.

Basically, you're going to guzzle down a combo of baking soda and water a few times a day for as along as it take.

 

According to LivingTraditionally.com,

Day one: Take a total of six doses of half a teaspoon of baking soda in one cup of water. Take at two hour intervals.

 

Day two: Take a total of six doses of half a teaspoon of baking soda in one cup of water. Take at two hour intervals.

 

Day three:  Take only two doses — one in the morning and another at night.

 

Continue taking one dose in the morning until illness is cured.

 

Nashville Kat also said to apply Thieves Essential Oil to your feet. (Sorry, feet haters.)

When you feel that cold coming, pop by a pharmacy or a big box store and you'll surely find Thieves Essential Oil.

Put a few drops on the bottom of each foot right when you feel a cold starting. You can also do it daily as a preventative. Both of these things really work, the key is to not wait until the full blown cold sets in. Do it a.s.a.p.!

Go buy some baking soda and Thieves Essential Oil right now and show that cold who's boss!
