I haven't been feeling well for the last few days, and my symptoms seemed to triple overnight, so I took a trip to Student Health this morning. An hour and a trip to CVS later, and I'm on penicillin for the week. As long as I feel better, I'm happy, but I figured it might be nice to make a post where we can discuss home remedies. Click on my suggestions if you want a more in depth explanation about how these scientifically work.
- Gargling with salt water. Mom, I want you to know that I listened when you told me this would work, and have been gargling all week long.
- Chicken noodle soup. The Jewish Penicillin.
- Keep drinking. While you can't "flush out" a sickness, your immune system will operate much more efficiently and effectively to fight back if your body is hydrated.
- Put honey in your tea. Tastes good, and has benefits, too.
What are some of your home remedies? Any I've forgotten?
