#GoneGreen2016 | Day 231 | Cold Season | Cold Sock Treatment Immune System Booster

Day 231 / 365

My mama's medicinal treatments for cold season have been keeping me healthy for the past 32 years, so as a part of this eco-friendly cold season series, I thought I'd share my least favourite / but most effective cold curbing trick she passed down. It's called the 'cold sock treatment' and will usually nip the cold in the butt if you're quick on the draw. The process speeds up your circulation, hyper-activating your immune system and allowing it to flush your body. 


COLD SOCK TREATMENT

1. Before you head to bed, soak 100% organic cotton socks with cold water
2. Put them on (super uncomfortable for the minute before you) then cover them up with dry 100% wool socks 
3. Sleep the whole night with them on. then spend the night asleep in them. The process speeds up your circulation, hyper-activating your immune system—and if you’re lucky—enables you to skip the cold all together.
