|I thought this might be appropriate since I'm setting at home with a cold. What are your favorite remedies and concoctions? For years now I have used Thera Flu powders in some Sprite or Mt. Dew and a jigger of bourbon. Just mix it, and heat it up and drink. Best thing I have ever found for a cold and sore throat. Now you just about can't find the stuff, or even the CVS or Walgreen brands either. The plant shut down that made all of them? Hopefully it will be back on the shelves shortly. But what do you use and do?|

|My high-school football coach(many moons ago) told be that right before bedtime to heat a tall glass of orange juice - as hot as I could stand to drink it - take 4 or 5 aspirins and use enough cover so I would sweat all night....worked like a charm - 80% better the next morning and completely recovered by a second night of the same.|

|If your having drainage and waking up with a sore throat all you have to do is chew up 3 or 4 regular generic brand asprin. The taste isn't as bad as Bayer or Bufferin. |
It coats your throat and it won't be sore.

|Better late than never but...Elderberry. You can buy a bottle of Black Elderberry Syrup at most any Walgreens, CVS, etc. It's proven to shorten the duration of flu symptoms by as much as 50%. It works and it tastes good. |

|A friend of mine was tested positive for the flu. I was amazed that she was not given any prescription meds but was told by her doctor to pick up elderberry and it has been working better than tamiflu!|

|best defense is a strong immune system, eat healthy and drink lots of water |
elderberry syrup!!!! vit C and lots of clear fluids! treat symptoms as needed but its a virus and must run its course but elderberry syrup has been shown to help!
as stated above: DONT GET THE FLU SHOT!!!!!! and stay away from folks who've recently gotten the flu shot if you can help it (has been shown/proven that recently vaccinated folks actually "shed" the virus for a period of time
