  • Garlic and lots of it
  • Homemade chicken noodle soup
  • Put Vicks Vapor rub on the bottom of your feet covered with wool socks when you go to bed
  • Chew on ginger
  • Echinacea (not so crazy)
  • Gargle with salt water (for that sore throat)
  • Take Vitamin D
  • Elderberry
  • Spicy foods
  • Yogurt
  • Slices of onion in your socks will draw out the toxins

Some swear by these remedies others say they don't work, at the end of the day it boils down to what works for you and plenty of fluids and rest. If you're sick, get well soon and if you aren't Lucky Duck! :P
