With an end-of-summer illness turning our office into a petri dish of doom, Name.com staff, our Facebook Fans and random people have pitched in their thoughts on how to fight a cold. Warning: some of these may kill you.
Checker at Whole Foods: Apple Cider Vinegar.
Tom Salzer: Best one I never tried: buy a gallon of cheap red wine, heat it on stove to as hot as you can stand, drink the whole thing, and when you wake up, your cold will be gone 😉
Ashley, Name.com Marketing something or other: VITAMIN C or Emergen-C and some sunshine to dry things out. Sambucol is pretty rad too and mushroom tea (kombucha) because the probiotics help to flush out your system. And tons of water.
Dregond Rahl: Antihistamines everyone 😛 and get a nasal de-blocker like nasonex. And coffee haha.
Caroline Temple, Name.com Domains Concierge: TIME.
Bonnie Stone: Buy Cold Snap and take that. It’s incredible stuff. From the same company that makes Stomach Chi and Ocho Motion.
Bogdan Storm: Sex.
Tom Salzer: Seriously, all you can do is treat the symptoms as best you can, take extra good care of yourselves…and wipe off those keyboards and doorknobs!
Ryan, Name.com CS: Show up at work take it like a man and cry like a girl at home.
Katie of Name.com CS: 11 hours of non stop hot yoga with an hour of headstands…followed by lots of coconut water.
Mark Ursus Veritas Mina: Bucleys. Take shots of it :p (bloggers note: I have no idea what “Bucleys” is.)
Justin Schwartz: Eat some spicy food! Trust me.
Bo Bergstrom, Name.com Product Manager: Brutal workout so you are tired enough to sleep through the sickness.
Abdulmohsen Almansour: Ginger for cold = win
Jared, Name.com Community Evangelist: Eat something crispy, like burnt toast, and then gargle with hot saltwater. Sleep.
Elizabeth Campbell: Zinc. Cold-Eez drops.
Prashant P. Patil: Ok guys first buy some coal from market. Wood coal .. now take out one power supply fan use some old power supply to powerup it. Now use some fuel to burn coal and use fans to keep coal burning. Now keep such hotspots in well ventilated way.. keep windows half open to keep your office warm. Natural way to keep home warm…. Dont buy beer wine which may cost u much.
Thank you Name.com Facebook fans and office fiends, these tips should help you fight a cold and, I think, just plain cold in general.
