A bowl of hot soupEat well. Researchers have identified certain foods that help combat colds. You should include the following in your diet: broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, garlic, onions, tomatoes, peppers, citrus fruits, berries, wheat germ, whole grains, seafood, and meat.

A cup of hot teaDrink fluids. Drinking a lot of fluids helps to flush the germs out of your body. Avoid fluids that contain alcohol, caffeine, excessive sugar or salt - water is definitely your best bet. Fluids help to keep mucous membranes moist, allowing them to trap the virus and dispose of it.

A steamy showerMake steam. Turn on a humidifier, run a hot shower, or lower your head over a bowl of hot water and breathe in that moist air. This will counteract the drying effects of indoor heating.

A bottle of medicineUse an appropriate medication. If your cold is affecting your life, use one of the following Buckley's® cold remedies to help you through the day.
