There are many issues that we may face on a regular basis and sometimes, those issues can crop up without warning. When they do happen, they often leave us feeling miserable and although it may be somewhat short-lived, we want to do everything we possibly can to get out of the uncomfortable situation as quickly as possible. One of those issues is when we have a cold or the flu and it certainly can be a miserable experience.
Both the common cold and flu are caused by viruses and once they get a foothold in the body, it can be very difficult to get rid of them. Some colds may come and go with only mild symptoms but sometimes, we may get hammered by a cold that just seems to hang on for quite some time. That isn’t even to mention how poorly we can feel what we have the flu.
Over the years, there have been a lot of attempts at curing the common cold and the flu but the results have been less than stellar. Often, the primary focus of any medication that we take is not to cure the common cold but rather, to address some of the symptoms that we may be experiencing. Those symptoms are familiar to all of us and they include coughing, stuffy nose, feeling weak and watery eyes. If you are ready to overcome those symptoms, this little DIY project is the solution you have been looking for.
