I thought I would try to keep this going in Kristie's absence. I think we all should, actually.


Anyway, from reading FB statuses, many of my friends are battling summer colds. I am battling summer allergies. What are some of your tried-and-true cold / allergy remedies?

I pretty much try to take as little medicine as possible. Lots of lemon juice and steam. Lol!

Haven't been around in a while but thought I would pop in!

I swear by lots of sleep, NyQuil, hot tea with lemon and honey and chicken soup. And if I feel a cold coming on, I'm usually drinking lots and lots of AirBorne.

My son is also very sick at the moment and doesn't take his meds!!! I can't take any meds (because of allergies), but I swear by lime-tree blossom tea, honey and lemon juice. And a few cats under the blanket in the winter!

I love my Neti Pot. It helps a lot with my pesky allergies. When I'm feeling a cold coming on, I try to take some Echinacea and drink lots of raspberry tea. At night, NyQuil works wonders! ;)

That sounds like my cure for everything! When I'm stressed, I'll take a hot shower, wash my hair and then have a nap for about an hour.


I figure, whatever it is, is not going anywhere and I can battle it clean and well rested. If I lose, at least I'm clean & well rested.


Love the sig!
