Fight the Common Cold by Drinking Water

Are you feeling miserable? It’s the cold season, and a bug or two is sure to invade. There are several natural remedies to cure the common cold. Eat chicken soup. Drink tea with honey. Use a humidifier. All of these have one common element: water. Who hasn’t been offered “the drink plenty of fluids” advice when they’re sick?

There are many theories behind this. Some say that the extra vitamin benefits of juice is best. While some experts will say that the water is more effective way of replacing fluids lost from a high fever. It is said that water also loosens up mucus and helps with respiratory tract evaporation.

Normally, you should drink at least 8 to 10 eight-ounce glasses of water a day. When you are sick and experiencing a fever, drinking water can help break up your congestion. If you drink water or juice when you’re sick, you are less likely to become dehydrated, and your throat will remain moist.

When the temperature drops and the winds begin to blow, the air becomes drier. This means that our bodies are not getting as much moisture. When the winter months begin, it should serve as a good reminder to up your water consumption. If you are like most people and don’t care for water during this time, opt for some nice warm tea.

Things to Drink When You’re Sick:
1- Water!
2- Herbal teas
3- Fruit drinks
4- Sports drinks
5- Ginger ale
6- Your mom’s chicken soup

You should also limit your intake of Coke, alcohol, and coffee. Sadly, caffeine acts like a diuretic and may dehydrate you. However, the best and most effective thing to do to feel better is to stay warm and get plenty of rest.

Water can not only help you fight a cold, keep you hydrated, but studies have shown that it can help you lose weight. This is great news especially during the months we avoid the gym.
