Cold & Flu Care : How to Get Rid of a Cold

November 11, 2019


You have the sniffles again huh? I’m Dr. Savage.
I’m an osteopathic family practice physician in Tampa. You’re wondering how to get over
a cold. If it is just the common cold try over-the-counter medicines such as decongestants
without any contraindications of course or expectorants. One of my favorites is Guafenacin
that helps thin out the snot in the nasal passage. In order to get that out also you
have to be well hydrated so drink lots of fluids, get plenty of rests and another thing
that can help is nasal saline spray. It might seem a little funny at first but getting the
saline spray in the nasal area will keep the mucous membranes there well hydrated and will
allow that nasty stuff to get out and that will make you feel better much faster. That’s
pretty much it. I’m Dr. Savage and I wish you the best of health.

    Actually, it isnt good to do cold meds over the counter. I actually supresses your cough, ext… so it will take longer to get rid of, and will always make you sicker by weakeniing your immune system by putting all those toxins in your body, all the added chemicals in the meds. Take echinasia, vitamin c, acidophilus, and drink spearmint tea to conqur the couch. Problem is, is everyone thinks theyre dieing when they have a cold. Its not a big deal.

    Nobody wants a bunch of drugs. That's not natural. People want to hear things like- green tea, honey, exercise, water, fresh air, fruits, and vegetables. "Doctor"s should think of natural remedies.
