cold remedies

from nowhere a cold has struck. only my left side is affected (nose, throat, ear, jaw, shoulder and back) which is quite bizarre. my last cold - if one doesn't count the runny left nostril issue soon having a one year anniversary - was in late november so i would have appreciated not having to deal with a new one already. but i guess it's that time of the year alas.

trying to beat it with this (international stylee);

:: ginger chews (indonesia)
:: herby mints (old recipe from a pharmacy in wittenberg, germany)
:: ginger tea drink (thailand)
:: black currant medicine (finland)

spicy pumpkin soup and garlic bread for dinner.

i really don't feel like losing the whole weekend to the cough and snivels. fingers crossed.

what's your best cold remedy/ies?

Hot lemon drinks, sleep and time. I am always appalled at how miserable a cold (which is really quite a minor ailment) makes me feel. I hope you get better very soon.

Zinc lozenges work all the time!

I swear by echinacea--I double or triple the dose as soon as I start to feel under the weather.

Failing that, a shot of *good* whiskey. But not with any cold medication. LOL.
