When most of us think “Cold” we think winter and fall. Chillier days, darker weather, and a warm cup of tea. The truth is you can catch a cold any time of year if your immune system is not working full force.
Summer colds, despite our best efforts, still happen. Many in Southwest Florida are reporting symptoms right now at the end of June. While there is not a “cure” for the common cold, there most certainly are ways you can naturally boost your immune system to help fight it off in the shortest amount of time possible. Don’t just let that cold linger.
