Right I've got a terrible cold/flu from yesterday morning!
Tried everything (well the most i can)
Parcetemol, Asprin, Cough stuff, Gotta wait till 12 and ima try some Lemsip..

Plenty of fluids, a hot toddy and an early night works for me. An antihisthamaine should dry up your nose, and cough medicine is rubbish.

Echinacea is good but its not going to help now - get strong dose of vit c into you - none of this RDA crap thats nothing - get a super dose and make sure its a time released one also.

I am so into alternative heath therapies - used to be a manager with Holland & Barrett (money is so bad there!) and I am a strong believer in it all.

I take echinacea every few months for three weeks - also give it to my son. I havent been off sick for 11 years as my immune system is strong.

Good luck and hope u feel better soon

p.s rda in case u are not sure is recommended daily allowance

Go to Holland and Barrett if there is one near you as always great deals - but def get some strong vit c (TIME RELEASE!) as it slowly releases all day rather than a big dose instantly lol

Thanks peeps,
You know your stuff! =D
There is a holland and barret near me, but the thing is, im like fasting aswell (ramadan),
I won't really be able to take anything in the morning so hence why i was wondering whether the supermarket ones would be good enough?
so i could just have some now, and well early in the morning (well depening on how the dosage would work..) before my fast begins!

no wonder you are feeling yuk, echinacea is an immunity building solution rather than a cure, you could try some berroca ...that does make you feel a little better.

Echinacea will reduce the time your cold lasts as well as being preventative. Drink plenty of water :thumbsup:
#20
Berroca ...it's available in any chemist or supermarket where all the other vitamins are. It's every vitamin you will need in effervescent tablet form. Have a hot bath or shower, pint of water and rub your olbas oil on your chest and get in bed. If you are aching make a drink of hot water, lemon and honey or sugar with the paracetamol in.
#21
Oh and if you are fasting tomorrow have some fruit with your breakfast, take the Berroca again and have something that is a slow burning energy breakfast like porridge.

You didnt mention a cough but I read somewhere that putting Vick on the soles of your feet at bedtime apparently stops/reduces nighttime coughing. Google it. Theres quite a few references

Keeping the immune system as strong as possible helps to fight any possible infection you might pick up hopefully reducing the severity. Garlic is a natural antibiotic - as well as keeping people away from you if you indulge too much. Hot and spicy foods seem to help in some way as well if you can tolerate them.
