Sorry to hear you're under the weather. Colds are more annoying than anything. Personally, I drink tea with echinacea, and vitamin c in it, with some organic honey. I believe in the homemade chicken soup fix. So, I keep frozen stock on hand. I thaw and heat to drink from my convenient soup mug, or if feeling up to it I may add fresh vegetables of choice. I, also, turn up my Aprilaire for added humidity. Pretty much the old staples; plenty of fluids, which includes pedialyte, broth/stock, water, juice, tea, rest. Over the counter cold remedies, and/or throat lozenges, only if absolutely necessary. I try to avoid taking any medication if possible!
I hope you feel your best again soon, Amy.
