Remember that any type of drug may help with the symptoms you FEEL, but they do not fight the infection. So, you are better off taking a couple of warm baths a day, you can add eucalyptus oil to it. It is naturally antobacterial and antiviral and your body will soak it in and eventually will go into your blood stream where the infection is and fight. You can find these essential oils at bath and body stores in the mall. Use a humdifier and you can also add some peppermint oil to that for congestion. You can also boil a pot of water on the stove and throw a towel over your head and inhale the steam for 10-20 minutes. Drinking a lot of tea and taking 3,000mg of vitamins C will also help. We get sick when we are not healthy. Your body either has too many toxins or you are not eating a proper diet with the essnetial vitamins and minerals and that causes your immune system to be down and allows for sickness to enter, I hope this makes sense and helps. Most people believe that these medicines help, but they do not, in addition, they contain chemicals which is bad for the body and the immune system. It is best to fight it naturally. You can also add some lemon to your water too!
