So please don’t expect a miracle at the doctor’s. We don’t have any.

Fluids, rest. Tylenol, Ibuprofen. Take a bath with some epsom salts. Eat some chicken soup. If you like drugs, take some-over-the-counter ones that you think may help your symptoms. Buy Kleenex. Smear on some Vicks.

If you want to spend some more money, then take some things that are supposed to boost your immune system. Try Umcka, oregano oil, Echinacea, garlic. Take some high dose vitamin C.

If you want to get better fast, try a homeopathic remedy. If the symptoms are just starting try oscillococcinum which is even available in drugstores. Otherwise, look up your symptoms here and get a better remedy at Sprouts, Whole Foods, or some other health store near you that carries homeopathic remedies. It’s the closest thing to a cure you are going to find.
