Whenever I chug OJ (A LOT), I kick whatever is about to take me down to the curb. For some reason, it’s failproof for me.

@allisonh:  Find a doctor who specializes in holistic medicine. Get a session of IV vitamin therapy (Meyer’s cocktail). That’ll fix you right up!

Maybe some Emergen-C? It’s powdered vitamin C that you can just mix into a bottle of water…or maybe Zicam? I hope you feel better ASAP!

Mix cinnamon and raw honey together and take a few spoonfuls a day. Best before you start to feel the sickness coming on but it works for me!

vitamin C–lots and I’ve heard that rubbing vicks on your feet and wearing socks while you’re sleeping works though I havn’t tried it.

Hope you feel better.

definitely second the vitamin C

Hot water with lemon in the morning and at night

COLD FX!! Like, 3 or 4 a day!

Also, spoonfuls of maneuka honey are supposed to be good, as is eating straight up garlic (although I’ve never tested that theory myself)

 

AAANNND, Hot/Cold remedies. If you can get access to a sauna, sit in a hot sauna for 10 minutes, then jump into a COLD SHOWER. Do this a few times. It’s supposed to kickstart your immune system or something awesome.

Every. vitamin. known. to man. in natural form of course. All those supplements and pills really aren’t as good as the real thing.

When I get sick I drink orange juice around the clock, eat lots of fruit + vegetables, and drink lots of water. Also, sleep. for. forever. I’m usually better in two-three days like that.

Zinc for sure!  Not such a fan of Zicam, but up the supplements!

@winstonchurchill:  +1 on the orange juice tip. But beware OP, if your head cold turns into a stomach thing and orange juice is involved…let’s just say it won’t be pretty.
