This cold won’t take me down!

You know when it’s coming… can feel it… are left wondering where those little germies where when you came into contact with them……at the grocery store while pushing that sticky cart, at the post office when you held the door open for that stranger, actually, maybe it was that stranger!!   It doesn’t matter now, those little germs have invaded your body and are trying to start a war!

Are you ready to fight?

Are you armed with the proper weaponry???

Does your body have what it needs to win?

Here are some great tips to help fight off those germs the next time they come around!


Take a clove of fresh garlic and dice it as small as you can…..

then mix it with a spoonful of raw honey

swallow and repeat!!

Garlic is a wonderful way to boost immunity in your body!  It contains allicin, which has shown to have antibacterial and antifungal properties.

A great tip is to buy organic garlic in bulk.  Peel and seperate each clove and place in a ziploc bag and place in the freezer.  When you need a clove just let it thaw for about 5 minutes!


Take some fresh ginger root and slice it into small chunks.  Place in some water and boil for 10 minutes.

Cover and let steep for another 10 minutes.  Strain ginger pieces out and drink the ginger tea.  Optional: add fresh lemon and honey!

Ginger tea is also good to use for pain and nausea as well as helping to fight off a cold!

You can also buy organic ginger in bulk and slice into small pieces and freeze!


Oranges are a great source of vitamin c and when you are sick you need lots of fluids so fresh squeezed orange juice is perfect!


Green tea contains antioxidants plus the caffeine helps with the lack of evergy you feel when you are sick!

Try it with a little almond milk and some stevia!!


 Probitotics should be taken each day but especially when sick.  Oregano oil is a great immune booster-dab a bit behind each ear.


These are full of nutrition, and are a great addition to help strengthen your immune system when it is compromised.

Oh, and remember they say you cannot CURE the common cold so I am not claiming that any of these will cure your ailment, rather, they may help to alleviate symptoms. 😉

    • how did that taste?? I like doing it with the honey because it sticks into a ball and I can swallow whole and not taste the garlic….although doing that a few times before my husband came home from work caused me to smell like garlic bread when he walked in the door!!!

  1. Ok, Samantha, I’m trying these today. Pinned this a while back and have been fighting a sore throat yesterday and through the night. Think I’ll wait ’til after my son’s basketball game this morning to do the garlic one though. 🙂 Thanks for the tips.

  2. Samantha, this worked! Thank you! I did the garlic and honey, the orange juice and the green tea. I didn’t have raw honey but used regular, local honey. I had a sore throat on the right side for several days prior to trying this and my right ear was starting to hurt, too. I ate the garlic and honey one time, drank several cups of the green and two cups of o.j., rested a lot, and the next day I was totally fine. No more pain in the throat or ear. Thanks so much! This is my new go-to plan for fending off colds.

    • awesome!!! That garlic is some serious stuff!!! It will fight off so much! Ginger is really great too…I cut off a big hunk and boil it and then drink the water…it helped me a lot!!
