I'm coming down with a cold are there any good remedies that don't involve popping pills?

get plenty of rest.. drink plenty of fluids... have some chicken soup... and in about 7 to 10 days you will feel better....

Oh em gee. It's me.
Drink plenty of fluids, Get lots of rest, Eat a bowl of nice and warm soup (Chicken Noodle soup), Stay warm!

drink lots of fluids, have some vitamin c products (fruit juices, fresh fruit and vegetables...) and wrap up warm so you feel kind of hot... that seems to work for me.

seriously the best thing yo can do is eat and drink well. I felt a cold coming on me last week so i just stayed away from the pub even though my friends were going, made sure i ate plenty of oranges to get vitamin C and ate healthy(ish) meals. it worked for me

Zinc lozenges. Like Coldeze. Look up the research. They work to shorted the length and severity of cold.

i always find if i drink lots of fluids i dont suffer as much lots of orange juice it works for me....get well soon,

Lots of fluids, waters best, and a duvet day or 2...

drink hot water with honey and fresh lemon in it.

Say what?
avoid ice water.

Drink hot tea mix with honey. Drop a few mint leaves in the cup. Mint leaf also eases breathing.

Or u can also mix ur tea with brewed ginseng.

sorry to hear you are getting a cold,,here are some remedies that are wholly homeopathic,, but for now drink a lot of water or juices that don't contain a lot of sugar, also take Vitamin C herbal,, there are two items I consider very useful,, the first is Andrographis ( can be found at many herbal stores and the other is Echinacea with Goldenseal. I have used both for, but not together, for years and have not been sick since I started using either of these.

spiced rum ! in coffee ,tea , hot coco ,warm milk .etc...
hot shower and gargle . soup sounds good . cranberry juice . YAHOO HEALTH . COM

Rest, plenty of fluids (non alcohol) steam inhalation with something menthol in the water.

Yeah! try taking some fruits that are rich with Vitamin C (Oranges) and have some real chicken soup with lots of hot sauce.

Echinacea is a natural immune booster (you can get the drops or tablets at most health shops or Boots etc) or Goldenseal is also a good choice
Also Vitmain C,A & E .Also make sure you eat healthily so your body gets strong & can fight illness.
I found this info on this site,which gives really good advice on natural remedies etc..(please see link for more info)
"....Poor nutrition is the most common cause of a weakened immune response. Foods that are good natural sources of the immune-boosting antioxidants include kiwi fruits which contain more vitamin C than oranges, Chinese cabbage which is an excellent source of vitamin A and avocado, known as nature’s own superfood because it provides the optimum healthy ratio of fat, carbohydrate, protein and vitamin E. Foods that are rich in vitamin B6, which boost the production of antibodies to fight infection, will also help. These include bananas, carrots, lentils, tuna, salmon, wholegrain flour and sunflower seeds. You also need to step up your intake of dietary zinc by eating more seafoods, eggs, turkey, pumpkin seeds and crabmeat...."

What also helps me if I ever get a cold is taking a really hot shower (not bath as the water get cold), then immidiately go under the covers (in a warm room) & I sweat out the toxins by morning.

Oranges !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

minostrone soup or chicken soup for the soul

yes a good hot toddy,and plenty of fresh air,as heat breeds the germs,so sleep with windows open

Try a hot cup of Country Time Lemonade with a teaspoon of Honey. Drink as often as you wish. This helps me and others and was recommended to my in-laws by their family Dr. Hope you feel better SOON!!!

Soak your feet in warm water with salt dissolved, for about five minutes at a time, a few times during day, and before going to bed: rub your palms vigorously, followed by finger tips, a few times. The cold will vanish!

In chinese medicine views, cold should be treated according to the presentations. Here are some folk and food cures:

You and me both, got up this morning with a stuffed up head, sneezing, coughing and the aches and pains. Natural honey and lemon juice in hot water, the humidifier, Vicks on my chest and my hot water bottle just for comfort. I'm also drinking water and more water, fluid is important.


Squeeze a lemon into a small bowl and add two tablespoons of clear honey. Then add two tablespoons of white vinegar and 4 fluid ounces of hot water. Mix together thoroughly and sip. This will soothe the throat and keep the virus going on to your chest.

Stay in the warm Ruth. Don't be tempted to to shopping
or work!! (Many people go to work when they have a cold
then they spread it around).
Drink plenty of fluids (I think you already know that though)
Warm Lemonade., soups and also have you heard the
saying 'feed a cold - starve a fever'. So eat as well, but
don't overload. Not too much telly. Plenty of rest. And
ask the hubby and kids to BE QUIET! Hope you're feeling
better soon.

Take a bottle of whiskey and a hat and go to bed. Put the hat at the foot of the bed. Drink the whiskey until you you see two hats. You will sweat out the cold and have a massive hangover to deal with in the morning.
