No one likes a cold, and various colds of one origin or another are going around this winter season. One of the worst parts of the common cold is that it's unpleasant enough to make daily life annoying but mild enough to force you to still go out into the world and maintain a normal schedule. But you don't want to have to do that. You don't want to get anyone else sick, and you want to feel better—fast. How do you do it? How can you speed up your clearance of a cold, whether through actually expelling the virus from your body, getting rid of the symptoms, or both? Let's talk about that. How to Feel Better Quickly When You Have a Cold These are the basic, research-backed things to do when you have a cold and want to get over it fast. Get enough selenium Get enough zinc Eat a bunch of garlic Drink raw golden milk Try nasal irrigation Try povidone-iodine gargling and nasal rinsing Drink bone broth Eat spicy food Get Enough Selenium Almost every upper respiratory tract infection I've ever studied has selenium deficiency as an enhancing variable. Most viruses, for example, sequester selenium and utilize it to replicate and to weaken the host, leaving them wide open for further, deeper infection. The common cold is likely no different. Eat Brazil nuts (one to three per day) and oysters and wild salmon. It is possible to overdo selenium, so don't go overboard with supplementation. Just eat selenium-rich foods while you're experiencing symptoms. Get Enough Zinc Zinc is the most important mineral for immune function, especially regarding upper respiratory tract infections. Depending on the virus, zinc has been shown to inhibit replication, lower binding, and block various physiological processes many viruses use to attack and ingratiate themselves with the host (you). And this isn't just theoretical or based on cell culture studies. The best evidence we have shows that zinc supplementation reduces the duration of common colds in adults. Eat Lots of Garlic Garlic is a potent super food lurking in plain sight. Garlic and its components can improve immune function, reduce the occurrence of common colds, and block viral entry into host cells. If I feel a cold coming on, I'll crush and dice up an entire head of garlic and lightly simmer it in a big mug of bone broth. I find I am usually able to ward off whatever's headed my way. Of course, that's just an anecdote and the available evidence is more equivocal. Drink Raw Golden Milk Ayurveda is the traditional Indian system of medicine. Although talk of chakras and levitating gurus lets rational skeptics dismiss it entirely, modern science has vindicated many Ayurvedic therapies, herbs, and concepts. Golden milk is one, and it's really simple. Add turmeric and black pepper (plus other spices) to milk and it turns gold. In Ayurveda, golden milk is used to fight sore throats, colds, and flus. Does it work? Well, turmeric is absolutely rife with potent pharmacological effects. … Continue reading "Have a Cold? How to Feel Better Quickly"
