How I'm Going To Fight Off Colds This Winter

Or at least try to fight them off! With natural remedies, of course. It's pretty much inevitable that you will suffer from at least one cold during the long winter months. I'm putting together a plan of action to help ward off any nasty colds and help ease the ones I do encounter. So far, it's worked a treat!
For pain and symptom relief, I'll be turning to Viridian Organic White Willow Bark 400mg Capsules and Viridian Organic Wood Betony Tincture*.
To boost my immune system and keep vitamin levels high, I'll be taking Multivitamins + iron tablets and eating fresh fruits and vegetables in abundance. I can also add the Minvita Aguaje Superfruit Powder* to some dishes, which will also boost vitamin and fibre intake. I will also ensure I increase my water intake, to reduce the chance of becoming dehydrated.
Eucalyptus essential oil will be used for steam inhalations and Badger Sleep Balm can be rubbed on sore, irritated areas and used as a relaxing sleep aid. Handmade Naturals Calendula Care Jelly is also great for applying to sore, irritated skin. Having hot baths will soothe aching, tired muscles and the steam will help with de-congestion.
I'll also be wrapping up warm when outdoors, as it's good to get some fresh air, and drinking hot, herbal teas which are warming and have many beneficial properties. Extra sleep is also a good idea, helping your body to rest and recover. I'd also try to reduce the use of computer and phone screens and instead turn to a good book!
I'll be careful not to restrict myself too heavily from treats such as chocolate, because if your body is craving something in particular, it probably needs it! Look to the most raw forms of these craved foods, as they will hold the most nutrients.

How do you help ward off colds during winter?
