Why Are Colds So Scary?

A regular viral cold is nothing to be scared of – it usually is contracted when you get in contact with someone who is carrying the virus or recovering from it. Now with modern medicine and evolution, all you have to do is relax at home for a week and the cold resolves on its own with over-the-counter medicines for fever, sneezing, or cough.

However, because of the similarity of viral cold and novel virus symptoms, people have gotten extra paranoid and cautious. So, if you think you are coming down with viral flu, you need to isolate and make sure it’s not a more serious threat.

Once you’ve tested negative for the novel virus, these tips are here to help you recover from viral flu in 24 hours.

1. Hydrate Yourself

It doesn’t matter if you are not thirsty – drink lots of water. Keeping the body hydrated helps in regulating bodily functions, allowing your cells to continue working against the viral infection, and keeps your throat lubricated. If you get tired of water, you can try throat-soothing teas like ginger tea or peppermint tea. but

2. Vitamin C for Clean

If you don’t know then you’ll be surprised to hear that Vitamin C is great for your immune system, as it strengthens it. You can include Vitamin C by eating fruits like berries or oranges. Your immune system will thank you.

3. Grab Your Humidifier

During a viral infection, your nose gets clogged and your throat dries up. The best way to tackle this problem is to give your body some steam. When the steam from either hot water or a humidifier is inhaled into the body, the lubrication of the nasal airways helps ease congestion.

These tips may sound simple or even ineffective but paired with a good diet and rest, they lessen the intensity of your symptoms and make you feel a whole lot better.
