Eat lots of spicy food it will clear you right up and some believe it will make you get over your illness faster

also drink lots of warm tea with lemon or honey

I hope you are feeling better soon

Soup! I'm sick right now too. I made some soup and I spiced it up with a ton of garlic, onions, and I put whole peppercorns in it. After a bowl of that, I'm ready to go curl up on the couch and nap.

My gramma always rubbed vicks chest rub on me when I was sick. It seemed to help clear my head.

Hope you feel better soon.

Re: grandma's remedies

I second the soup idea! My family was sick over the weekend and soup and saltine crackers seem to work. Also make sure to drinks LOTS of fluids!
Sorry that you aren't feeling well mama!

Re: grandma's remedies

I have to second the spicy food. When I start to feel sick my dh makes me his "cure what ails you" salsa and it always seems to help! It's just any salsa with some extra hot sauce. If you have OJ drink that while eating it and it cuts the spice!
