    Default post your home remedies for colds

    I took dayquil but I'm still sneezing like crazy (and it's worse cuz it flies out my nose but then swings back around and lands in my face) and my throat is sort of sore. I know lemon honey tea for the throat, but I still need to stop sneezing

    plus this might be a good reference for people in the future.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I tried this yesterday and today and the symptoms haven't progressed so this might actually work. I felt pressure in my left sinus and my left eye yesterday morning and my right nostril started to run, so I began taking 1 gram of Vitamin C each hour every hour. I ended up taking about 12 to 14 grams of Vitamin C yesterday; today, the symptoms have improved but they're still there. I've continued taking 1 gram of Vitamin C each hour today.

    I don't know if Vitamin C will help if you already have the cold but if it's just starting, it might work.

    CHINESE BALM. On your tissue before blowing your nose.

    It also works pretty well against headache on your temples. And on (almost) all muscles after some intense activities/sports.

    Menthol, Eucaliptus, pinus pinaster oil, limonene, camphor.

    Try it ! All natural and unblocks your nose straight away.

    But be careful, if you don't wanna be like on the picture , only use a small amount of the product.

    You can get it in a Bio/ Beauty or Health Care Shop.

    Benadryl will help the sneezing.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I drink emergen-C/store brand version when I can feel cold symptoms/sore throat coming on. That plus a couple solid nights of sleep seems to work most of the time for defeating them before they take hold.

    I also like to drink boiled ginger with lemon for a sore throat.

    Emergen-C also works great for a hangover. Drink one before bed and one first thing in the AM.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    And it has occurred to me that it could be a placebo and that it's really just the good nights sleep, but, in these instances, I'm happy to use the placebo if it works!
