I’ve had a cold for almost 4 weeks.
I went to the doctor after week 2. They asked me some questions about my symptoms, took a chest x-ray, determined I didn’t need antibiotics and sent me on my way with a prescription to help suppress my cough. He told me that these things can last 3 or 4 weeks, and I’d just have to ride it out.
Fine, but can’t you help or hinder the healing process with lifestyle habits? He didn’t give me any tips on that.
Take care of your body so that it can fight the virus.
Better yet, avoid the cold altogether by living a healthy lifestyle! I probably could have beat it faster with more sleep, less stress and healthier food.
