for colds and flu!

What are your tried and true remedies that make you feel better when you have a yucky cold/flu?

I believe in fresh ginger and lemon tea with a little honey.

Been taking C forever and ever.

Believer in Airborne when I feel one coming on or take it as a preventive measure when I am going places that I might be susceptible.

Vitamin C and if I even suspect I've come in contact with someone who has a cold, I double up on it.

Hand washing and keeping your hands away from my eyes works for me.

Hand washing and vitamin C. Change the hand towels frequently, or just put out paper towels too.

Vitamin C for sure and flu shot.

Flu shot -- pneumonia shot too if you haven't had one before. Wash your hands often -- ALWAYS, first thing when returning home. Don't touch your face.

I think it is unproven that vitamins aid in a medical sense, but if you believe they do...they do!

I've sometimes chewed a bit of candied ginger to settle a sick tummy. Tea is always good. Honey...not sure about that. If you're taking any antibiotics, counteract them with some probiotics to restore the good bugs.
