How to beat back a cold

I have a cold. I don’t get them a lot, but when I get them, they kick my ass. I have found that, for one reason or another, I can’t take any cold medication. They all mess me up in one way or another, so I just suffer through them, hoping that it will not last long.

Yesterday I decided to try something new, I was tired of waiting, so I took what I knew about natural cold remedies, and mixed them together. And then I felt better.

So, this is what you do:

Get a pot, and a couple of cups of water. Begin boiling it.
Add a couple of tablespoons of honey.
Add a shot of lemon juice.
Add five or six thin slices of fresh ginger.
Heat for 5-10 minutes.

This will make you feel better.
