This is something I’ve used in the past to stop a cold dead in its tracks and it worked pretty well. It’s not the best experience for the senses, but it’s much better than sneezing, coughing and laying in bed for a couple of days or more.
This method works best if used at first sign of a cold. You’ll need ginger, garlic, green onion and some reishi powder (or any medicinal mushroom). Take a bit of ginger, a whole scallion and one big or 2-3 smaller cloves of garlic. You’ll need to take these raw, besides the mushroom, and that’s why you wouldn’t want to do something like this on a daily basis, but just on special occasions when you feel you’re coming down with a cold.
All of these taken in raw form should help burn the virus and help prevent a cold, but prepare yourself for an intense experience. After this dose up a bit more than usual on any medicinal mushroom, like Reishi, Chaga or Cordyceps to help boost up the immune system and you’re good to go.
