@sheepandbear:  Douse yourself in garlic..for real it works

 

ETA: put a clove between your cheek and gum leave it in for as long as you can take it.

@sheepandbear:  Yes you can if you can take it…I’m Italian/ Sicilian and have been doing this forever I usually follow it up with a glass of wine or two:)

I love garlic too but it is strong some people can’t eat it raw, if you can then by all means chomp it down but be prepared you will smell for a day or two. Dont stress you will be fine for your wedding day:)

this is brilliant. you dilute it with water and gargle at first signs of a cold. do it a few times a day and it kills the bacteria. often it stops the cold taking hold or makes it far less severe. i alternate with salt water.

also soluble vitamin c  tablets (as fluids are good so youre getting vit c + water)

herbal teas

also on first day of feeling like im ill i take one of these before i go to bed

maybe sleep apart from your fi for next few days? and wash hands a lot

ooh another thing i do (im paranoid, any sign of a cold and i get out the big guns)

a nasal saline rinse – again, first signs or even as a preventative measure. neti pot if poss or normal jug. distilled water

id do all these and try the garlic¬!

Get zinc lozenges from pharmacy or health food store, suck on them as much as you can.  Also make sure to multivitamin every day and get your rest

Oh no, this is my worst nightmare!!

When I feel a cold coming on, I have one zinc and vitamin c tablet in the morning, and one at night.  And drink litres of water! It always helps, and even if I’m already full-blown sick, it helps me get over it in 2 days max 🙂
