I can feel a cough/cold coming on..

Anyone know of any natural remedies that would help it? Like not antibiotics/cough medicine or anything. Thanks.

  • I've been using echinacea tea. Also orange juice. and I've also been using a neti-pot- you mix the salt and baking soda into warm water and pour it into your sinuses and spit it out. Before I had a neti-pot, I mixed a little salt and warm water into a small glass and sniffed it up and spit it out. In general, drink lots of fluids, especially warm liquids, to help the mucus flow.

  • Rinse your sinuses like Bmat suggest. Also, put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in each ear and let it clean out the gunk.
