My mom awoke out of the blue the other night with a terrible cold. With her sniffly nose under a tissue, my mom asked, "Lauren, what can I take that will actually make me feel better?"
Western medicine teaches us to rest, stay hydrated, and wait! There are not a lot of pharmaceutical medications that can truly make you feel much better when you have a virus, so as doctors we often recommend none. As patients, we get frustrated that nothing seems to speed that healing process along!
So, I did some research into complimentary and alternative medicine options for healing that nasty cold.
