Yes,good old Vicks Vaporub brings relief,also eating a clove of raw garlic twice a day (if you have an ulcer problem,eat the clove after breakfast and
dinner,else it irritates the ulcer.Thats what ive found anyway) Lots of fluids,100% orange juice (NOT the reconstituted stuff,or anything with
preservatives) If there are any South Africans reading this,Liquifruit is the way to go.
A cup of tea with an aspirin,or 2 if you feel realy grotty.And buy fresh ginger,then you use a piece the size of your pinky,make a few deep slices
into it,steep it in boiling water with a thick slice of lemon.Add a teabag,and add honey for a bit of sweetness.Honey is always exellent for
sore,scratchy throat. Chicken soup,made from scratch.If you are feeling too sick to stand by a stove for long,then dice a chicken breast with sone
finely chopped ginger and a clove of garlic,also salt+pepper,of course,and seasoning of your choice.Stirfry in a bit of olive oil,and add water when
browned,and add a packet-soup,chicken flavour.Its still good that way.
Im just recovering from the worst,most brutal cold ive had in years,lasted almost 2 weeks.In the town some miles away,the MediClinic is full of very
sick kids.I took my l'il son to the doc on Tuesday,cus he woke up Monday night with a horrible croup-sounding cough.Turned out to be bronchitis,and
then the doc told us there's a bad flu going around,many kids are down with it.Bit early for flu,here in South Africa,its only beginning of March.
