Extra vitamin C, keep washing those hands, chicken soup, alka seltzer & a couple of shots from the doctors, Johnny, Jim, or Jack. That's Walker, Beam or Daniels, whomever you have handy for a house call.
Also, forget the style points & just sneeze into your sleeve. Be well, hugs & kisses, everyone!

Yep - vitamin C everyday! Yes - wash hands a lot! Wear gloves in public - pushing shopping carts, etc. NEVER touch the magazines in doctor's offices. Don't touch any part of your face unless you have washed your hands. Plenty of rest. Hey - and if your sick stay home so not to spread it to everyone else!

Go HEAVY on the Virgin Coconut oil and Grapefruits for a couple days. Works esp great for lipid enveloped viruses.

Last winter I tried a folk remedy I'd read about but never actually used before. It didn't cure the cold but it really did an amazing job with the symptoms.

A jigger and a half of bourbon mixed with a heaping tablespoon of honey and then slowly sipped. Took care of the scratchy throat and congestion in my chest and head. I was skeptical but it really did work.

usually if you take lots of vitamin c, use cold medicine and rest it will take about 7-14 days to go away, if you don't take care of yourself it takesabout a week-2 weeks to get over it.

A shot of Jack Daniels kills a cold dead.

Red onion sliced thin with sugar sprinkled between slices. Press between 2 glass plates and drink the juice. Works as well as bourbon and honey.

I'll stick with bourbon and honey. It's pour and mix and way less work. When I have a cold just making toast exhausts me.

Huevos ranchero with hot salsa to clear the sinuses in the a.m. and Jack Daniels Black Label with honey later in the day. Of course if you have a bad sore throat, substitute hot tea and honey for the huevos rancheros. And, drink lots of water.

Chug a small bottle of Power C Machine by Naked and do a sinus rinse with saline water. Not at the same time...
