There’s never a convenient time to get a head cold, but it always seems to come at the worst time, doesn’t it? Like when you have a big presentation coming up at work, and you manage to catch your kindergarteners’ cold, the one that comes on fast, is really messy and lasts and lasts.
First you feel a little nasal congestion, and then, before you know it, you have a miserably stuffy nose and are so congested that you can’t breathe, nor, as a consequence sleep.
You need nasal congestion relief, and you need it to work fast, so that you can get some sleep (and be rested for that presentation). So what can you do to help speed your recovery and make the suffering go away fast?
If you are like some people, you probably turn by default to oral decongestants or nighttime cold medicines for nasal symptom congestion relief. But did you know that oral nasal decongestants take up to 10 days to take full effect (and that’s at maximum dosage)? Who has that kind of time to wait for relief?
In addition, nighttime cold meds contain alcohol, which makes you feel drowsy, but alcohol has been shown to reduce REM sleep (the deepest and most restful stage of sleep), so you may not get the rest that you need to feel better or get better. Not optimum for peak performance.
What you may not be aware of is there is a non-drug solution that has been shown to work immediately to relieve nasal congestion that is 100% natural to leave you feeling and looking well-rested by morning.
1 – Load up on vitamin C.
It’s a natural antihistamine, which will help reduce the “histamine”, nasal congestion, response to your cold virus.
2 – Drink lots of vitamin-enriched or antioxidant-infused water, hot herbal tea, and/or, orange juice
Why not give your body a fighting chance? Stay clear of sugar, caffeinated, artificially sweetened, or stimulant rich drinks. Your body craves care when you’re sick, baby yourself keep your drinks healthy.
3 – Order up a hot bowl of chicken soup
There are some special enzymes in chicken soup that help fight off viruses, plus its very soothing, which will make you feel better and sleepy.
4 – Wear two Sinus Cones.
They increase nasal airflow by 110%, which will help clear nasal congestion faster and aid the antihistamine effects of the vitamin C. Plus, Sinus Cones are clinically shown to provide as much breathing relief 10 days faster than oral decongestants! By relieving congestion from the inside (at the source of the problem), Sinus Cones gently open nasal airflow immediately so that you may breathe in deeply and freely all night.
5 – Put in some extra bedtime.
There is nothing like a good night’s sleep to help your body fight off a virus or flu. And, because Sinus Cones help you breathe well, you can get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Used together these are killer apps for fast natural relief of head colds, so that you’ll be better by morning.
Instead of waking sick and exhausted, take vitamin C, drink up, wear two Sinus Cones, and get to sleep so you can feel and look like new by morning.
No waiting! Feel better faster, naturally, with Sinus Cones.
