When has chemistry ever brought us anything positive? In the world filled with genetically modified everything, steer clear of over-the-counter medications and shoo prescription drugs away! Who needs the latest advances in pharmacology and pharmacy when you have centuries old holistic natural remedies? There is nothing more potent than natural treatments, especially when it comes to the common cold.

Here's how you fight high fever: soak two washcloths in egg whites, place these on the soles of your feet, and cover with socks. Yes, paracetomol is faster and more effective, but is it as creative?

To cure a sore throat, try an astringent gargle. Apple cider vinegar mixed with lemon juice and chili powder should do the trick. There's a chance this concoction will burn off the membranes in your throat, but hey, what do you need your voice for anyway? To speak up against herbal medicines?

Been sneezing and wheezing? No need to consult your doctor. Simply boost your immune system with dark leafy greens. Sprinkle some kale with grated ginger, drizzle with eucalyptus oil, and you're good to go. (To the bathroom. Fast. And then to the doctor.)

Next on our list: garlic. This powerhouse natural antibiotic, anti-fungal, and antibacterial, garlic can tackle almost any illness. For the best effect, finely mince 1-2 cloves of garlic in a small glass of water. Drink quickly - if you are sick enough, you won't even notice the taste. Oh, who am I kidding. You will. Everyone will. In fact, you'll stink up the whole room with this one.

If you've got a cold, the most natural remedy for that in the 21st century is to google the nearest pharmacy and get some anti-flu drugs. You can wash them down with herbal tea, if you like.
