Unlike a winter cold that is caused by the rhinovirus, summer colds are often caused by another group of viruses known as the enteroviruses. The infection spreads when you come in contact with an infected person or object, or when you consume water that has the virus in it. The most common symptoms are sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, scratchy and sore throat, coughing and congestion. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been used to help naturally alleviate the symptoms of a summer cold. Here’s how to try this home remedy:
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
A glass of water
Mix the vinegar and water and drink this mixture. You can add some honey for taste to this
Drink 1-2 glasses of ACV water every day until the cold clears up.
