Y! Canada News Editors
What's your favourite home remedy for beating a cold?
'Tis the season for the country to get sick ... share your best home remedies with us.

What causes a cold? Surprisingly, it isn't the actual cold ...

At the first sign of a cold I take garlic supplement tablets, 3 or 4 times a day. This usually limits the symptoms to 1 or 2 days.

humidifier, heat pack (magic bag) on the chest,
lots of tea and honey

If you catch it when it's starting rather than waiting until it's a full-blown cold, you can usually take the homoeopathic remedy "Aconite" and it will help to stabilize your body and reverse the symptoms. It's important, however, that you take it in the early stages -- 3 pellets, 3 times a day. You can always consult a homoeopath first. If you regularly visit with a homoeopath, chances are your immune system will be in top shape, therefore decreasing the chances of you succumbing to a cold in the first place!!!!
Your chiropractor is also a great defense against a bad cold, as aligning your spine will help your immune system to return to a healthy state.
I've also personally used eucalyptus oil, rubbed into the soles of my feet and covered with cotton socks before going to bed and noticed the congestion in my head cleared quickly!!

Kari M
Warm water with honey and lemon. I find it works well for sore throats when there is a lot of congestion I will add a few chopped up mint leaves. I find the mint helps open up the airways. Kids love it and you don't have to worry about overdoses.

First thing to do is to cut out sugars as they break down the immune system. Secondly, take echanacia from the onset of symptoms. Thirdly, get some chicken soup into ya! Chicken broth if you have the flu. And, fourth, take some extra vitamin c and d.

When my daughter starts to get congested in the chest...I rub her down on her back and her front with Raleigh Sauve. (vicks vapor rub). Sometimes it has actually stopped the cold from developing if you get it early enough.
Also doubling up on vitamins and juice works.

I myself use Cold FX, or Aerobic Oxygen drops in my water at the first sign of a cold.
Peralandria drops are also effective.

I bought myself a Neti Pot after watching it on Oprah: http://www.oprah.com/health/oz/oz_20070426_350_105.jhtml

I haven't had a cold for the last six months after I bought mine!!!

Yeah, definately the vicks on your feet thing. Very helpful for a bad cough. Also a vaporiser in the bedroom at night helps with stuffed up noses.

Jennifer S
I learned something new for coughing at night. Put Vicks Vaporub on your feet and cover them with socks. Gets rid of coughs 100% of the time. Not sure how it works, but my 2 year old sleep through the night even when he's sick!

Joy B
My Naturopathic Dr recommended EchinaSeal, a herbal tincture combo, manufactured by St Francis Herb Farm. It has Echinacea, Golden Seal, Wild Indigo, Myrrh, Bee Propolis, and Cayenne Pepper...Quite 'spicy'! 30 drops in water every hour or so, it is an anti-bacterial, anti-virus and anti-fungal remedy!! My family has avoided many colds with this in combination with at least 2,000 mg of vitamin C every 2 hours (max 10,000 mg/day).

homemade chicken noodle soup
hot lemom and honey drinks help if you are of age
a little shot of the spirits in that hot drink goes a long
ways the hotter the better and lots of rest

I usually give make orage juice and gingerale mix half and half that helps, leaving the window open a crack, to allow fresh air in and lots of rest, oh and wahs the bedding and clothes daily. My kids are usually fine within two days.

Elizabeth B
Lori L was right: Xango juice. My kids had a nasty cold for an entire month; nothing helped. Xango juice had them cleared up in two days. When taken regularly, it greatly reduces your chances of getting sick in the first place. The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota actually conducted a study that found that orange juice (or high(er) levels of vitamin C) don't do a thing to help a cold.

This works for coughs
take a spoon full of hoeny and add a dash of grinded black pepper then eat it
it doesn't even taste bad!

ok lets see...
-halls vapour action for clearing your sinuses (as needed)
-1 redoxon vitamin B - magnesium effervescent tab (in the blue tube)
-1 1500 mg vitamin C tablet
- 1 ea echinacea and garlic extract pills
- 1 centrum complete
have a nice hot bath, drink a glass of orange juice with about 2-3 oz of brandy, and get about 14 hours of sleep. you wake up feeling like a million bucks.

Not a cold remedy but help to stop the coughing especially at night:
soak a pair of socks in cold water and put them on your feet. Cover them with a pair of woolen socks to keep your bed dry.
It's amazing how quickly the coughing stops and you can sleep. Once the socks are dry you can re-wet them as you will likely start coughing again. Laugh if you will, it really does work.

When my throat starts to close up, I drink Tabasco sauce. It tastes awful that way but the pepper helps to loosen the coating on your throat.

Foodwise, lots of spicy food and curries. I also drink lemon water and peppermint tea.

Darlene S
chicken soup ///-neo- citran hot tea and rest

Crush two 50 mg tablets of ZINC between two teaspoons. Add crushed ZINC to a half glass of orange juice. Stir and slowly drink. Repeat this again before retiring. Keep this up for three days. It should cut your cold from 10 days to three

ale c
make a infusion boil milk with 3 o 4 garlic cloves + honey and cinnamon. drink is excelent for a bad cold.
ale from mexico

salt water!!! yes....its better if its sea salt but if you snort salt water up your nose you can kill nasty sinus infections ect, when gaggled with it will kill a sort throat. a few drops in your eye will kill pink eye in no time too!!!

Best remedy's that I've come across that work are;

1) Ginger ale and fresh lemons cut up and boiled on the stove for 1 min. It's an amazing drink if you like lemons and seems to losen everything within a day.

2) White Rub!!! Chest, Neck, Feet and socks and lots of blankets to heat you out. :)

3) Powdered Mustard, Flower and boiled water. Mix everything together until it's pasty and put it between paper towen then wrap in a towel to avoid direct heat to body(Will burn), Put it on your chest for 10 minutes, 10 on your upper back, 10 on front again and 10 on back, then load up with White Rub and snuggle into bed. If you feel like your ready to die because you just can't break it...this works wicked!!!! (Also a good remedy for people who suffer for Arthritis)

Hot water with lemon juice and honey. As often and as much as you want. It works with children and adults of any age. (Take an over the counter pain med if you wish.)

Alright and being a country girl and remembering to what worked for us then does work for us now. Raw garlic as much as u can stand to eat with a slice of toast. Take garlic and slice thinly and place on toast and devour quickly. Sure no one will want to kiss u for a few days but that the hey you will feel better. Drink also some hot lemon tea with honey. Also boil some ginger root until it is mush. Strain and drink the broth it is very strong so add plenty of honey and drink while it is hot . Repeat for 3 days and guaranteed better. I had pnuemonia once and it worked like a charm

My opinion on cold remedies is lots of rest;such as sleep, the old remedy of chicken noodle soup and drink non-alcoholic beverages,such as water[lots of water] and Ginger Ale. The way I hear this isn't good for you and that isn't good for you.I'm not going to make the cold remedy companies rich off my cold.Our ancestors didn't go to the local store to buy cold medicines,they just dealt with it, why can't we? If it works for people then great,I'll stick with the old fashioned.To each is own,whatever works for people.

lukewarm water therapy..and home steaming...it melts the phlegm, and somehow lessens the clogged nose.
