Oh no!

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 Darling Husband 🙂

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!
