Natural Cold Remedies Do Work

By Analiese Paik

Even the kids' version of this tea was enough to help me get some relief and rest.

I’ve been sick since Sunday. Really sick. I’ve had no voice for three days and am hoping it comes back before Christmas. One evening, desperate to stop the coughing so I could get some sleep (coughed right through Robitussin the night before), I remembered I had bought Cold Care tea for my kids. It tasted good, especially with some Red Currant Honey from Red Bee stirred in. Better yet, it worked. My nose turned off, which shut off the cough, which let me get some rest. I slept without a cough until 2:30 am, rose for a second cup to quiet it again, then went back to bed and slept until the 7 am alarm clock woke me. Ditto for the next night.

If you’re ever in need of a natural cold remedy to help your kids sleep at night, reach for Traditional Medicinals’ Organic Cold Care Just for Kids. Happily they make an adult forumla called Organic Cold Care PM. Exactly.

Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season.

  1. Glad you are feeling better. The honey and tea treatment is well recognized but the ingredients in the patent medicine (elder, yarrow) don’t seem to have been found to have much effect as far as I can determine.

    • Thanks for the well wishes. Ah, there’s so much we humans don’t know about plants. We have studied a fraction of the nutrients in them and are only just beginning to understand how they work together to heal or harm us. The good news is there are natural remedies that work.

    • Feel better Kate! This tea is available at Whole Foods Market but I’m sure health food stores carry it too. Don’t forget to get the $1 off coupon on Traditional Medicinals’ Facebook page.
