Ladies everyone around me has been sick, I have tried to keep it off with anything I can take to help.My luck is I kept it off until last night and woke up with really sore sinuses, anyone have any advise for me? I cant believe I am going to be sick for my own Bridal shower.. Can’t reschedule either.. Please help…

OJ, tea, chicken soup… lots of fluids and vitimins. Hot showers or a Neti-pot to help with congestion. And SLEEP. Drug yourself with benadryl if you have to.
I’d stay away from the OTC symptom relief stuff, personally, because that just seems to slow my colds down. But something like zycam might work too.

Recipe from my naturopath for staving off a cold:
- Grate (I just peel and chop) at least 1″ of fresh ginger. Boil in 2 cups of water for 20 minutes. The longer you boil it, the stronger it gets.
- Remove ginger and add in fresh juice of 1/2 lemon, and honey to taste.
- Drink 2 cups/day. I could drink it by the gallon, it’s so tasty!!!
Works like magic for me and DH 🙂

@bakerella: I forgot about that recipe, I did that last time I was sick and it is very tasty and does help. Dont have any ginger though and have to go to the mall tonight for wedding stuff.. This is the worst month for a sickness, its my last month before my wedding and I have so much to do.

Oh no! That sucks! try drinking as much oj as possible and get as much rest as possible. My grandmother always tells me to my garlic in my socks and wear them over night LOL although you might not smell the greatest. Hope you are feeling better soon!
