With the cold and flu bug sweeping across the US, here is a reminder of some remedies you can use to fight it.

  1. Gargle with plain water. 
  2. Have some chicken soup.
  3. Get plenty of rest. 
  4. Try a Zinc supplement or lozenge.
  5. For aches and pains, acetaminophen (Tylenol or Advil) may help.
  6. Use honey to soothe a cough.
  7. If your nasal passages are blocked, try a decongestant and skip the Vicks.
  8. If your stomach is also upset, ginger can provide some relief.
