Collective Cold Remedies
Well, the month of May might not be considered the height of cold season. But I am just getting over the grandmother-of-all-colds. I can’t really complain, though, because this is the first one I’ve actually had in years. Usually my favorite home remedies ward them off.
Which got me thinking…
I bet we are a collective treasure trove of ideas for home remedies for colds. Whether what works for you is a mainstream product or alternative, maybe we could all be more armed for battle with a list of favorite personal remedies stored here on this website to consider. If the ones we usually use don’t work against a particular bug…maybe another one on this list will!
Of course, I’m not a doctor (although I’ve played one on TV…well, a nurse, actually…but that’s beside the point). What I mean is, I certainly can’t endorse any remedy as being medically sound. But…even some “old wives’ tales” have earned merit over the course of the centuries. So, why not keep a list of things that have personally worked for each of us. And each of us can be responsible for using our best layman’s judgement as we read through them.
