Proper Nutrition
The most efficient method to increase the resistance to cold and boost the immunity is a proper and balanced nutrition, with many fruits and vegetables as these offer necessary energy to fight with viruses. It is important to avoid fats that expose keeps the liver extra busy and we are exposed to more diseases.

Consume lots of honey

When our body is busy with processing and transforming sugar in fats, it fights hard to keep up with the maintenance of the immune system. Honey contains over 400 nutrients including vitamin C and B, that boost immunity and keep us away from colds. Lavender honey relieves caughing and throat pain. Lime honey relieves fever, fir tree honey is helpful in case of respiratory diseases, and flower honey is antimicrobial.
