I always reduce my intake of oil, wheat and dairy products at such times. It seems to help.

For a yucky tongue drink water or hot water with lemon juice. Add honey if the throat is sore. When my nose is really bunged up, (more than usual) I use Sterimar.

Old fashioned remedies are really good. Vicks menthol vapour rub is really good. Some people put a little on the soles of babies feet when they are unwell. I do that as well as applying it more conventionally


When I start to feel the sore throat coming on and my glands swelling, I immediately take vit c and zinc daily. Clears up in a couple of days. I think that is if its just swollen glands and slight sore throat. I find that it works when I am run down and start to feel unwell. I stop as soon as I feel better because I try to keep that balance of not too much immune support since we are autoimmune...hope you feel better..overnight has some great ideas..honey and such..


Personally I reduce dairy produce as it makes me produce more pheglm and catarrah. You could try goats milk products. I also try to have fresh vege juices including more raw garlic, raw ginger and cayenne pepper all of which I put into my juicing machine. The vampires will certainly stay away! Hope this helps.
