Natural Cold Remedies--NO MEDICINE? I need recommendations.

I cant take cold medicine b/c for

1--I've tried too many and they dont work for me

2--they make my heart racey which I hate that feeling

I've been taking Airborne for 2 days and its letting me down......

Besides food and lots of liquid anyone else have their own natural remedies to rid a nasty cold.......?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you try coriciden (sp?)? They make special ones that don't affect your heart--my mom is on heart medication and the dr. told her to take that.

Sleep - and lots of it! Always works to beat a cold out of me. And with a recent cold, I fell in love with the healing ways of Ricola drops.

Re: Natural Cold Remedies--NO MEDICINE? I need recommendations.

How about those zinc lozenges? I think they're called 'Coldeez.' They've worked for me in the past...

Feel better!

Coldeeze is good, also Zicam nasal swabs...they are about $8, you can find them in any drug store or supermarket.
