Common Cold Cure

Looking for a home remedy for a head cold? Hot feet and Cold socks are just the cure you need for relief from a common cold.

When you are ready to go to bed for the night, try this remedy.


Nylon Socks: socks like dad wears to go to the office
Cotton Socks: athletic socks
Wool Socks: big, fluffy, warm, ski socks are perfect

*The socks you chose should come to the bottom of your calf but not cut off your circulation. They can be snug, but if they leave an impression on your skin after removal they are too tight. Stretch out the socks so the fit comfortably. The socks pictured above are not good examples, but they looked pretty ;-)


Step 1: Prepare for bed.

Step 2 (Optional): Soak your feet in a bucket of hot water for 10 minutes.

Step 3: Remove your feet from the hot water, soak nylon socks in cold water, wring them out so they are not dripping and put them on your feet.

Step 4: Cover the nylon socks with your cotton socks.

Step 5: Cover the cotton socks with your wool socks.

Step 6: Good to bed and get some sleep.

When you put all the socks on your feet you should go to sleep. When you sleep, your body will start the 'cook' the wet socks (and your cold) and dry them out. If you can't get to sleep, don't lay in bed with cold socks on your feet (this will not help your cold).

The next morning your cold will be gone. Congratulations! If you feel sniffles by the end of the day, perform the procedure each night until you feel relief. Key to Happiness Workshops and Retreats
