My 7 Home Remedies for Cold and Flu

The past few days I have been fighting being sick and every time I do get sick I end up completely useless and unable to do much. Thankfully I only get sick a handful of times a year but even with me usually feeling like all around death I need some way to help me get over whatever my body is fighting. Cold and flu medicine doesn't help me much so I turn to other things to help get me through it this is a list of things that personally work for me when I'm sick.

  1. Take a shower- I take very hot steaming showers when I'm sick it helps clear my sinuses and helps me to be able to breathe a little easier. I usually do this in the morning to help make my mornings less miserable.
  2. Drink water- I drink so much water when I'm sick  it helps keep me hydrated.
  3. Green tea- Absolutely the best thing when I'm sick is green tea with lemon and honey it does wonders to soothe my throat when its sore and a nice warm mug to hold is always more than welcome.
  4. Soup- Soup is invaluable to me when I'm sick there's something unbelievably comforting about eating a nice hot bowl of soup.
  5. Sleep- My #1 favorite thing to do is always sleep and obviously sleep is the best thing you can do for your body when you are fighting a cold or flu.
  6. Hot spicy foods- my dad's side being Hispanic when I would get sick around them they would give me hot spicy foods telling me it would help me sweat it out. I'm not sure if it helped much but now anytime I'm sick I always want spicy foods.
  7. Warm water with lemon- i know i already put water but this kind of water is completely different. Other than just plain water this is the majority of what i drink when im sick its very soothing to drink.
