What's a good fast acting way to get rid of colds without medicine

Report as

well if you insist of not using medicine I would recommend that you drink green tea where I think it can boost your immune system and wakens you up :P and eat not like a sick person what ever you do don't its not gonna help if you eat normal you will get better nutrients instead of eating low on nutrient food which wont benefit hope I helped :)

Rest works best, haha. A day off to sleep will help kick it, but I find herbal tea, and vitamin C works best for me (I didn't mean for that to rhyme,honestly)

Drink plenty of warm or hot water and sleep more than you usually would. Don't yell or be too active.

Mix a half teaspoon of ginger in a lukewarm cup of tea and drink it straight down. (Don't sip it.) The ginger will help sweat the cold out of your body.

OTC cold medications treat only the symptoms, not the actual cause. So they'll help you feel better, but not get over the cold any faster. In fact, I suppose they could make it last even longer since feeling a little better might mean you get less rest than you should.
Drink lots of fluids, but avoid citrus juices which will irritate tender throat tissue; blow your nose instead of sniffling it back up; wash your hands a lot; get as much extra rest as you can so your body can heal; gargle with warm salt water to keep the germs in your throat. If necessary to break up chest congestion, take an expectorant cough syrup. And spit out any phlegm you cough up.

Your immune system is the only thing that can cure a cold and there is nothing you can do to make it work faster.
