Whether your sniffles and pounding head are from the neighbor’s kiddos or your exposure to germs during the holiday travels, having a cold doesn’t have to mean misery until it abates. Here are three ways to manage your cold symptoms.
Whether your sniffles and pounding head are from the neighbor’s kiddos or your exposure to germs during the holiday travels, having a cold doesn’t have to mean misery until it abates. Here are three ways to manage your cold symptoms.

1. Zinc up

A popular natural remedy for colds, zinc has anti-viral properties and can significantly reduce the duration of  your cold. Studies have shown that zinc ions block the cold virus from attaching to the cells in your throat, helping you get back to your favorite winter activities faster. Try Cold-EEZE Oral Spray, an easy-to-do, on-the-go option for anyone wanting to maximize their winter activities. Just two sprays and you’re good to go! 
 
2. Be winter green

Studies have shown that vapor rubs may improve nasal air flow and sleep for children and adults. Make sure you pick one up that’s safe for you and your kids and be sure to avoid petroleum, as it is a by-product of oil. We love Maty’s All Natural Vapor Rub, which uses wintergreen, eucalyptus, lavender, chamomile and coconut oils to provide soothing relief while boosting the immune system. 
 
3. Get humidified

With your heater running indoors and the cold air outdoors, it’s no wonder that your nasal passages feel like the Sahara Desert. Dry sinuses mean easy-to-bleed tissues and difficulty breathing. Having a humidifier helps keep moisture in the air and prevent nasal passages from drying out. Keep one running while you’re sleeping. Try Crane’s Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier.
