7. Allow your body to detox

 

This is what it's all about. The remedy you were given is probably to help decongest (horseradish is awesome for this!), as well as rev up the circulation with thermogenic herbs like ginger (which is great to either help with chills or induce sweating, which further releases toxins).

If you are not taking any cold remedies, you will not suppress the healing crisis and rid your body of the excess mucus. This is really the best way to go, IMO. When I was a kid I was always given cold tablets (to stop runny nose and bring down fever) so the mucus just went deeper into my bronchial area and I would have horrible coughs lasting weeks. It's better to allow the body to detox fully (while also eating very light, non-mucus-forming foods like fruits and veggies, for example).
