Home-Made Remedy for Cold

+3 votes

Currently using NyQuil + Whisky + Whisky.  Seems to work well...as far as I can remember anyway.

Any other recipes?  (Sorry, I know people have an aversion to recipes around here, but it is a medially important matter)

See you guys later!

It's a virus, so it has to pass. Nothing can get rid of a virus but time. To ease the symptoms, Flo Nase and good old fashioned pseudophed...if you're coughing, Robitussin DM.   I normally just ride it out, because you only have one liver.  Unless there's an infection, then see the doc.

Sleep, Vitamin C (lots of it), Nyquil + plenty of liquids. Whisky is a diuretic, and gets you dehydrated.  So water, juices, Green Tea, and OK a blended barely product sterilized and bottled.  I think it is called Glenlivet

Glenlivet is nice, but it's a waste of single malt to put it in a toddy to treat a cold.
Straight up Tabby, kills more germs that way

I just had a bad cold...used dayquil, alternating days with Robitussin DM for cold and congestion,  Had a hot toddy,- bourbon/honey/lemonjuice/hot water at night.

Hope some of this helps...and hope your cold goes away soon.  Regards...

Some people take Lemsip for lurgy; I take Lemmysip.  In a mug, put about 1.5cm depth of honey, enough lemon juice on top of that to cover the honey, couple of cloves, good shake each of cinnamon and black pepper, double measure of JD.  Top up with boiling water, stir well and enjoy.

You should try a natural remedy and it helps.
