I hate colds. I woke up with a sore throat, and now I've got a runny nose/nasal congestion.

Can I do anything to keep this cold from worsening?

50mg of Zinc, and pop vitamin C like it's candy

You can't OD on vitamin C, but it can give you diarrhea...so stop when it gets to that point :P

I don't use OTC meds. I prefer vitamins and herbs and whole foods.

But growing up my mom would give us zinc lozenges and lots of vitamin C when we began complaining about feeling ill. I don't think I've ever had a cold last more than 2 days.

I get really sick about once every 3 years.

Vape some sage if you can, heard it helps the throat. Make sure you dry it though.

In addition, viruses can only reproduce in a very narrow temperature range. A fever is a way your body fights viruses (although it does "go overboard" sometimes and the fever does more harm than good).

So turn on your electric blanket, grab yourself a cup of hot tea and drink it while taking a hot bath! Give yourself a "fever" in effect. After your bath, get in bed, have a few puffs, and sleep as long as you can!

Hahahahaha you're obviously just kidding but in the rare case you're not, take the hot bath while drinking tea, then get high as f$&k and sleep with an electric blanket for as long as possible :smoke:

Well what I usually do, but it's not recommended at all. I'll take like twice the suggested dose of nyquil, drink apple cider vinegar (diluted with water) take a bunch of vitamin c and go to bed. Works most of the time.

Usually I get a head cold first, then it moves into my chest, but this is the first time I've smoked while sick, and it hasn't moved into my chest at all. I think by tomorrow I'll be healthy.
