To clear out your sinuses:

Vitamin A Vitamin B Vitamin C C C !

To get rid of a nasty cold it is important to get alot of Vitamin C. Therfore you should get one single vitamin c pill. Then you should crush the pill with a bottle or something heavy but not too heavy like a hammer. Then you should put the grains of the pill into a glass of orange juice. That way you will get double the c. It worked for me so I hope it works for you.

Hot Grapefruit Toddy

This is an old family remedy that works every time. Fresh washed grapefruit(unpealed)cut in quarters, water to cover. Stew the fruit until tender. Strain and add pure honey to taste. This will taste bitter because of the acid. Sip as hot as you can. Wrap up in your favorite blanket and sweat the cold out of your body.

Just pop a zinc supplement (50 MG) at night when you go to bed, every night. Keeps colds and allergies away. Our bodies don't produce zinc, so whatever you eat that contains it, gets peed out. so you need to replace it. Zinc is great also for clear skin.

Honey and honey soap

You can take honey by itself and you can use Honey soap like Honey I washed the Kids from Lush which works really good for overall general health and for long lasting health in general. But the key is Honey. It's very very good for you. Everyone should use lots of honey and not underestimate how good it can be for your health and mental health and body health

Take a grapefruit (ruby red works best) and cut it in half. Put the halves in the mircowave for 3 minutes each. (warming them up releases antioxidants or something) Eat both halves with a spoon and drink the juice. It tastes quite bitter, but it works! The cold is gone almost instantly.

End the cold

Juice 2 ginger roots and lemon and boil it. Then, after it has cooled a little add 1 tablespoon of rum. After that mix it all together. Then get a shot glass and take a shot of it about every hour. Remember to stay warm and only drink orange juice for that day. This remedy should end the cold in about a day.
