    It's that season where people start catching the flu. I just caught it. I usually have a spoon of honey twice a day, sometimes I gargle salt water and the best thing that works for me is having some quantity of cold & cough syrup. I'd like to know how you guys deal with it and maybe you can recommend me some other effective home remedies based on your personal experience.

    DayQuil/NyQuill is your best friend. Stay hydrated throughout the day.

    trick is to literally overdose on vitamic c when you first notice a sore throat coming up. If you're already there just stay hydrated don't smoke and sleep a lot

    Agree. Ascorbate Vitamin C is known as an anti viral.

    Many don’t realize the difference between ascorbate and ascorbic ( standard over the counter) Vitamin C.

    Half a cup of Lemon juice with a teaspoon of honey. Heat it up. Drink it.

    Then drink at least 3 cups of tea with cough drops dissolved in it daily. f--- that flu.

    get a fuckton of sleep, most restorative thing you can do to yourself when you get sick, at least in my experience. when i get regular 7-8 hrs a night & im sick, the cold/flu/whatever lasts like a week. but if i get like 12 or more hour sleeps the cold goes away in like 3-4 days.

    You just gotta eat well, fruits, veg (home soaked) beans should be your main daily intake. Lots of water. I aim for 3L a day. I haven't been sick/ caught the common cold in at least 3yrs (but has to be more like 5).
    Working in a hostel, so meeting hundreds of people a day, so I should be getting ill, my co workers will get sick, but I dont.
    Unfortunately living in the western world, with our ease of food and addiction to tablets (for s--- as simple as a headache) to our consumption of meat (antibiotic resistance) means colds are just a part of life unless you switch your s--- up and make lifestyle changes.
