Home Remedies that help with cold or flu

When I have a cold or flu there is almost nothing worse... and my wife will tell you that I can be a big baby when I am sick.  Well in the last two weeks or so we have had a few people sick in our building with the flu.  And at home the wife has been coughing and stuffed up, plus my youngest Emma hasn't been feeling well.   I would rather not get sick.  So I take extra vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D, and plenty of water.    

There are some other suggestions out there to help. 

Below are a few things you could try from healthline.com

  • Chicken Soup
  • Ginger, a few slices raw in boiling water
  • Honey at bed time
  • Probiotics
