Elevate your body temperature. Sleep with plenty of blankets. Sweat it out. It works for me.

"Umka" drops. Put them in your food, drink, or take them straight. You can find it in health food stores. One ml 3 times a day. It always shortens the duration/lessens the symptoms for me.

Feel better!

try drinking lots of water, sleeping a lot, and RUN. For some reason running always helps me feel better. It doesnt have to be that long..maybe just 1 mile. It also makes u sneeze more, getting a lot of the infected snot out.

You know what fights off common colds? Your immune system.

Think of vitamins that are immune boosters: Vitamin C, r-ALA (since it increases levels of vitamin c in the body), and zinc.

If you choose vitamin c, use "ester c" - it is lipid and water soluable, which is not the case for ascorbic acid.

If the going gets really tough, you can take psuedophedrine on occassion to relieve runny nose.
