For the flu, I swear by Oscillococcinum, a homeopathic remedy that even our local grocery store sells. Best taken when symptoms first appear, but it
still works if you have the flu. If what you have is NOT the flu, then it won't have any effect and won't hurt you either.
For bronchitis and fever, the pot of steaming water with oregano oil in it with a towel over your head thing works well to loosen the congestion and
helps get it out. I've also had excellent results with raw garlic. I was young when I tried this one, and I didn't know the difference between a
bulb of garlic and "a clove." So I chopped up 8 or 9 cloves before wondering how all that was going to fit on a piece of toast slathered with
butter. It did, and I got through about 2/3 of the toast before breaking out in a massive sweat from heat to toe. Lasted an hour or so, I fell
asleep, and felt much better when I woke up. Sure did stink for 3 days, though. Silly me.
A chiropractic adjustment has also helped break up the congestion in my chest.
There are some good tips here in this thread. Been meaning to do the Epsom salt bath. Neti pots require meticulous cleanliness to prevent
re-infection. Tamiflu reminds me of Dick Cheney, so I won't use it.
Hope you get to feeling better soon.
