If it's already hit -- drink lots of fluids. Teas and water seem to be the best, flush it out of your system -- and Nyquil / booze to make sure you sleep well.
I think Airborne was proven to be a hoax and the creators were under investigation for fraud. Can't remember where I heard it though.

Re: Post your cold remedies

Basically there is no miracle cure. Nothing beats getting plenty of rest and fluids and some good ol' chicken soup.

Re: Post your cold remedies

I remember in college when I would get a headcold I would down a pitcher of OJ in the course of about an hour. I doubt it actually did anything to get rid of the cold but it usually had a nice placebo effect.
Hot showers are also a must.

Re: Post your cold remedies

DAMN! I've probably bought 20 or so sleeves of that stuff. At $6 - $7 a sleeve, I want my money back!! Unbelievable.

Thanks for posting that, otherwise I would have continued to waste my money on a hoax.

Re: Post your cold remedies

I'm bumping this thread again for a few reasons:

1) because it's Cold/Flu season again

2) We have new members since this original post who may have their own holistic/home remedies and I'm always willing to try new things (as long as they don't cost an arm and a leg)

3) Because I swear to God I have the swine flu.

Re: Post your cold remedies

One thing to do -- cut down on sugar intake. Sugar depresses the immune system. (something to keep in mind as flu season arrives)

Click this link, then scroll down to the subheading which reads "How Sugar Harms"

SUGAR

Re: Post your cold remedies

I used to just keep enough alcohol in my body so that nothing else could possibly live there and I would never get sick; unfortunately, it was getting to the point where I couldn't live there either.

Re: Post your cold remedies

I had a summer cold a few weeks back and I slept it away. At least 12 hours a night and you're good to go in no time.
