  • When I have deep chest colds, I make a large batch of tea with honey and cinnamon--I can then reheat it and breathe in the hot vapors....honey and cinnamon have wonderful healing properties.

  • Simple Vick's vapor rub helps so much! I put it on before bed and it really does help you to breathe better so you can get some sleep. My hubby swears by Breathe Right strips. Hot tea is good...I like lemon and honey in mine. OJ is good to keep on hand to make sure you are getting your vitamin C, in case you don't have much appetite. I keep the reduced fat/sodium chicken noodle soup on hand for emergency situations. It's a good easy dinner for everyone and good for colds too!
