    try boil ginger in hot water with some honey, really warms up the body (don't know if it 'heals' the cold). I usually just take ColdFX for a quick fix though.

    You can try a singers elixer. I always gargle with it twice a day when I'm sick, helps it clear up much quicker.

    8oz warm water
    Juice of 1 lemon
    Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
    Tbsp Raw/Local Honey

    Also try Manuka Honey. Exported from New Zealand, it's made exclusively from the nectar of tea tree blossoms - A natural antiseptic

    Getting an iPad?

    Get a remedy that matches your symptoms: head congestion, cough, sore throat, fever, whatever. I had all of the above except the fever 2 months ago, turned out to be severe allergies, not a cold at all. So I took an anti-histamine, a decongestant, and a cough suppressant, worked pretty good.

    So tell us Apple fans what you're getting, and afterwards what you think of it.

    That ginger tea always helps me when I get a cold.

    If you have no problem taking meds, take an anti-inflammatory (e.g. Tylenol, Aspirin) to make you feel better and if the nose is starting to run an Anti-histamine to dry you up.

    Usually a cold is over within 48 hours if I stick to this regimen.

    I'm getting an iPad 64 3G and hell or high water, potential death from internal freezing will not keep me away from that store at the alotted time I have given my self to be there, I don't care if it's a two hour trip into the city at 1am friday morning, damn it, I'm going to be there!

    But until then I'm going to be pathetic and want snuggles and drinks and food and I've no one to do that for me.. I gotta look after my self which shits me cause I'm useless when I'm sick icon_sad.gif

    I need a man for a few days.. anyone wanna take the position? it's completely sex free and just requires snuggling, bringing warm drinks (and flat lemonade) and making soup...

    What works for me is a lot of vitamin C..........hot liquids, hot soups, and I eat oranges & grapefruit. There is no real cure, but these things help me feel better. Theraflu (sp?) is good as well.

    Feel better Tanky!

    Perhaps if your mouth was out of the gutter for a change you might not have caught a cold to begin with.......

    I have real time remedies that heal and cure with out fucked up chemical prescriptions or antibiotics that really do more harm than good and don't cure...just mask it over....and then what? A second round of the flue?

    Hey Tank, wish I had a quick fix for you bud, but I usually let it work itself out.

    Let me know what you think of the iPad when you're feeling better.

    Get well soon bud!

    went to the store, got ginger, also got cold and flu tablets, it's mainly just a combination of painkillers to ease the headache and body aches, so I'm happy with that, also, had some food, got some M&M's and biscuits cause there aint no use counting calories today and I also got a coffee (cause i like coffee and it warmed me up icon_biggrin.gif ) oh and got a big bottle of orange juice icon_smile.gif

    Right now I"m drinking orange juice and that ginger and honey tea and OMG that tea is just tasty, I'd never had it before but it's not to sweet, the ginger smells sooooo goood and it tastes awesome, plus it's nice and warm.. as it my notebook...


    Mystic when the hell does anyone ever expect my mind to be outta the gutter? *snorts* me outta the gutta is like a fish outta water

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidGet some fresh lemons to squeeze some fresh lemon juice into your ginger concoction. If you have a sweet tooth buy some unpasteurized honey and add it to the mix. Don't buy processed honey, it's just garbage. You should be able to find some at a health food store.

    This is good to drink on a regular basis, not just when you're sick. The ginger and lemon really seem to burn out germs from the mouth and throat.


    Plus it's tasty. icon_smile.gif



    mmm I might do that with the next batch, I also got some oranges, was thinking some orange rind allowed to steep might give it a nice little something extra too, but I got some lemons and limes in the fridge.. actually, that might make a really nice healthy cordial too if I let it boil off enough and reduce to a syrup icon_biggrin.gif
