Cold/flu/viral infection tips wanted
« on: April 17, 2018, 12:02:47 PM »
After a very very stressful time involving hospital vigils, berrvement, etc. I have come down with what thr doctor says is a viral infection. I need tips to survive! I have had to leave work twice for symptoms (bye bye money ...) and I am being forced to take it easier.

O Yes I HAVE been to the doctor, twice.
O Taking Lemsip max cold and flu day and night
O Was taking Benelyn Mucus max, now out of it. Also taking Corvonia Chesty, tried Corvonia Cathhr but didnt seem to do muh and the warnings are scary.
O Had chills and fever. Sneezing not so much. Nose clear now. Biggest worry is a lump feeling in the throat and chest and crackling sounds. Doctor listened and said my lungs are clear
O Have had oesophagal retching, its harsh and violent and my biggest worry
O Tried honey and honey in hot water. Hate ginger and green tea. Try steaming kn and off.

Any other tips?

One thing I have found that help me is Apple Cider Vinager with Mother. It fights viral lung and nasal infections. I use it for both me and my cats as it also clears up kennel cough. Another thing, and it may just be because I have a compromised immune system, but eating yeast makes every flue and infection worse. I would try cutting that from your diet and maybe seeing about a cleanse.

Seconding the apple cider vinegar with Mother (here it's sold in the health food section). My go to sore throat remedy is 2 tbsp each of the vinegar, lemon juice, and honey and a small dash of cinnamon mixed in a mug of hot water. Doesn't taste great but it helps. Really hot steamy showers may help with the chest crackle (that part worried me when I read it as that's what happened when I had pneumonia but the doctor said your lungs are clear, phew!).
Chicken soup/broth, hydrate and stay warm are the only other suggestions I've got, hope you feel better soon!

Drink tons of water. When the body is producing mucus we tend to dehydrate
