hydration, rest, vitamin c, zinc, chicken noodle soup, and lemon and honey tea are my go to cures. the tea might not help a whole lot, but it is tasty.

if you smoke or drink, it's best to quit while sick. those activities will make your cold last longer, if not make it worse.

I've taken Zicam the last two times I had a cold and I feel like it worked. I know some people think it's bullshit but I don't really care. I also do drink a lot of water so I guess that probably helps.

a friend of mine swears by drinking orange juice like non-stop. it seems to work for her. I know that she buys a half gallon of OJ as soon as she feels symptoms and downs it in like a day or so and the cold pretty much disappears.

Get sleep, drink water, go vegan. I haven't had more than a stuffed nose during the past four years.

yep i am a more recent vegan and sickness has not been a faculty in myself thus far.

I've heard conflicting things about OJ...

Obviously the Vitamin C is gonna help your immune system, but I've also been told that the OJ will thicken your mucous making it harder to cough/sneeze out... idk

I recommend a multivitamin, as they generally help strengthen the immune system. I hardly get sick anymore
this. you'll soon not get sick at all. And if you do, just pop a few Vitamin C pills and keep downing water to flush your system and you'll be better before it even fully catches on

I'm in the same boat as you. Developed a cold/sore throat 3 days ago so I'm gonna be skipping out on NYE festivities this year- it kind of fucking blows.

Try gargling salt water, drinking lots of water and tea w/ honey and cook up some soup. Happy New Year everyone! Have several drinks for me.

Just like people to know im feeling better. Tried a lot of shit and all of it probably helped. I also sucked on a couple tablespoons of Manuka honey which has helped in the past. Mucinex Fastmax seemed to have the quickest effect. Sucks I still had to miss New Years fun.

Thanks for all the suggestions though.

For future people who have colds heres a comprehensive list for treating the cold:
Water
Sleep
Multivitamins
Vit C
Vit D
Zinc
Citrus Drink (just cut skins off Oranges, Grapefruit, Lime, blend them, add ice and some club soda)
OJ
Hot Tea
Manuka Honey
EmergenC
Water fast
Gargling Salt Water
Mucinex (FastMax)
Advil Cold & Sinus
all the other billion pills which are terrible if you have too many
Whiskey
Going Vegetarian/Vegan
Masturbation
Viagra
Blanket
Anal.

Perfect.
