Common Cold Natural Remedies & Home Remedies



Cedar Wood Natural Cold Remedy

For a chest cold, boil cedar wood to make a tea and add lemon and honey.  Drink this four times daily.


Onion Sugar

This one I got from my grandmother and works great for a cold that has settled into the chest.  Start with 2 large yellow onions.  Peal these and then quarter them and put in a small cooking pan and cover with water.  Put in 2 cups of sugar.  Bring this to an active boil and stir until the sugar has all dissolved.  Then simmer without a cover until the onions turn to mush.  The liquid will have a thick syrupy viscosity.  Remove from the stove.  Mash the onions as much as possible and put it all into a glass jar.  Give one or two tablespoons of this every two hours.  This works great for deep chest colds where there is a lot of coughing and mucous. 


Raw Garlic

At the first sign of a cold or flu start eating raw garlic.  But don’t do this on an empty stomach.  They must be raw to work.  If you start this before the cold has got its talons in you, it will usually banish the cold.  Cooked garlic won’t work.  This is one of the best home remedies ever for curing a cold.


My home remedy for a cold is to drink a lot of hot green tea.  It will get rid of your cold.  Drink 3 to 4 cups every day for a couple or three days.


To break up chest congestion, make yourself a plate of sautéed onions with curry added and eat this on rice.  It will break up the phlegm in your chest.  Saute two sliced onions with one teaspoon of curry in two tablespoons of olive oil.  Do this until the onions are softened.  Onions have the compound qurcetin and the mineral sulfur.  These loosen phlegm and invigorate circulation.  Curry also breaks up mucous. 


Pour honey over slices of a sour orange or grapefruit.  Eat this and within a day or two your cold will be history.  My wife is Laotian and this was commonly used to cure colds where she grew up.  It is amazing!
