Basically is to take an Ibuprofen every day to keep good control of any bad cold. mainly throat infection due to the cold air.
To thin the blood?, nope, Coca tea for the altitude every morning at breakfast and late afternoon/evening is the best to control the altitude thickness.
FYI: FYI, most old farts like me in USA take one 81 mg aspirin(coated & extended release is recommended) to thin blood & to prevent heart attacks. I'm sure no doc but there is in fact NO cure for the common cold... Not being exposed is the best way to prevent getting one. Coca, I'll take you at your word.
