I think everybody has own way to help yourself, when you are sick...

Traditional russian remedy for a cold is to drink hot milk with honey or vodka with pepper :shock: But it doesn't help me :cry:

Some of the old remedies are brilliant. My mother says if you feel that you are getting a sore throat; boil some water and add one tablespoon of salt. Let it chill and keep it in the bathroom. Every time you go in the bathroom gargle some of it and spit it out. It works; I know it sounds strange but I have done this for years and it definately fixes a sore throat.

Another old family remedy is for bee stings. You pull the sting out with tweezers and then you make a paste from bi-carb soda and water (thick) and you apply this to the sting area. It stops swelling and reduces the pain from the sting. 8)

When I am sick, my mother world just asks me to go to doctors, ask me to sleep more, to take a rest, etc. I always get sick; my mother said that may due to the fact that I have no traditional Chinese soup to drink and have pressure. Therefore, I believe that traditional Chinese soup can make us healthier.

Nevertheless, Chinese people have some drinks with traditional formulas in order to make our body back into a good situation. However, those drinks with traditional formulas are different in different shops or by different people as the traditional formulas are not unitary formulas.

Hello.
If you have cough ,you can use Tee with honey.A spoon honey in a cup of Tee.you can add some fresh limone joice too.
If you have sore throat , boild water with salt for gragle (after get cold) is a good choice.
you can use vit c, in some fruits like orange , tomaten ... to decrease the sickness period.
and the onion soup is very good for common cold. :wink:
