Thank god I have no classes tomorrow, but by Friday, I don't want to be sick anymore!

I am eating chicken soup and drinking lots of water and tea.

What else can I do?

"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!

When I have a cold I usually sleep more, drink lots of water, drink lots of tea, eat chewable vitamin C and lastly I have echinacea 4 times a day... (that stuff rocks)

I just came back from the store, got vitamin C, Echanecia, Sudafed 24 hour. That's what the pharmacist suggested.

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.
