Cure A Cold With Saltwater
Got a cold? Gargling with saltwater can soothe away symptoms like a sore throat and sniffles, reducing the odds of that cold turning into an upper respiratory infection by 40%.
Gargling removes microscopic viruses from your throat and airways, which is key for keeping them from triggering a serious illness, researchers explain. At the same time, gargling with saltwater loosens mucous and soothes irritated throat tissues, so you feel better faster.
ALSO: Be Kind Too!
Simple acts of kindness, like running an errand for a homebound neighbor, makes your immune system more robust, a study from Bishop’s University in Canada reveals. Acting with compassion releases a cascade of protective hormones and immunity improving chemical messengers the study authors say.
