Here’s how to get rid of it ASAP, according to lung specialist Dr. Neil Schachter:
First, take a HOT shower when you wake up. Lying down causes virus-laden mucus to drain to the back of your nose and throat, making it harder to breathe. But hot, steamy air loosens mucus, helping you clear it OUT by coughing or blowing your nose.
Next, the more water you drink, the faster your body can flush out viruses.
And even a 5-minute walk slightly raises our core temperature, like when we have a fever, which can literally bake our cold germs away.
