My Secret Cold-Fighting Home Remedy!!

You're feeling great, hitting your workouts hard and excited about your progress!!  All of a sudden you're hit with a cold and it takes you down like a ton of bricks!  Being sick SUCKS!!  There is nothing more frustrating than having a cold or flu interfere with your health and fitness goals! My advice?  Don't let it!!!  If your first instinct is to grab some OJ, STOP right there!!   The high sugar content will do more harm than good because sugar suppresses your immune system!!  Plus, the typical over-the-counter remedies only address your symptoms and don't actually help you recover any faster!  So save your money and skip those too! Instead, try this home remedy and minimize any downtime!!  Sore throats, nasal congestion, bacteria and viruses are no match for this concoction! Hot and Spicy Cold Fighting Tea 1 cup filtered hot water 1/2 organic lemon 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar "ACV" 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (more if you can handle it!) Directions: Juice the 1/2 lemon and mix it with the hot water, ACV and cayenne pepper.   Gargle with this as much as possible and let it slowly slide down your throat.  Repeat as necessary and sip the rest.  This tea will reduce pain and inflammation, increase flow of mucus (get that gunk out!) and speed recovery!!  Use this at the first sign of a tickle in your throat or congestion in your chest and you may even be able to stop a cold in its tracks!  I know I have and so have many of my clients!
