I figure since it's that time of year, it would be appropriate to start a thread for cold and flu remedies, 'cause nobody likes to have the flu or a cold. I'd like to hear which remedies have helped you guys.

i will never take a flu shot. last time i did that i had a mild flu. i would never subject myself to getting it for sure. and i know it can help keep the flu level down if you've had the shot.

I recommend C.O. Bigelow's Cold&Flu Soak, Herbal Formula(I think you can order it on-line from C.O.Bigelow). Its a wonderful product you pour into a very warm tub and then soak and breath in the vapors(it has eucalyptus oil in it)...it really helped with the congestion and muscle aches when I had the flu last year.

Check out Umcka Cold Care (http://www.seacoastvitamins.com/topic.php?health=umcka). It's a great natural remedy that works really well. It comes in drop or chewable form, and Umcka makes a cough syrup (http://www.seacoastvitamins.com/product_info.php?products_id=1051) and Cold and Flu (http://www.seacoastvitamins.com/product_info.php?products_id=2427) product as well. I think it works really well, and have heard a ton of other people absolutely rave about it. Good luck and I look forward to seeing what other people use as well.

My favorite one: 8 hours of sleep.

I know it sounds cheesy, but hey - it works!
