Cures for the common cold


#1

Obviously “the man” and “big pharma” would like us to believee that there are non, but seeing as we’re more woke than your average internet discussion forum, I wondered what home remedies and routines you have to stave off the inevitable seasonal scourge. A few good DiSers have already been struck down and it’s time to change that.

For me:

  1. cut out diary immediately
  2. daily fruit smoothie
  3. run if i’m up to it, or a long walk if not. sweat it out!
  4. no booze

wbus?

I rely on being too fucking hard to ever get a cold.

Early Paul Young song titles needed some work.

if i feel a lurgy coming on, i generally try and have an early night, wrap up warm, and sweat it out. maybe have an orange or two as well.

Obviously if I say the right answer in this thread they’ll kill me, so just keep buying your over-the-counter remedies everyone!

Ha. Fairly impossible to create a cure or vaccine (science reasons)

Would just take plenty of vitamin c (in proper fruit format, not supplements). Prevent colds in the first place by avoiding getting cold/wet.

This is about the best you can do.

stand next to a lava lamp


#15

Paracetamol, sleep, and if I can, physical exercise when it’s in my nose. No physical exercise when it’s reached my chest.


#16

please tell me this isn’t a real thing


#17

you stooge!


#18

Is this true, or an old wives’ tale?


#19

Bed rest. In a place of consistent temperature.

Absolutely nothing else will help you get better quicker than this.

Lots of water and lots of sleep. Get well soon chief, I think I’m coming out the other side of mine now but it’s lasted a good couple of weeks.

N.B. this is actually the sound of me rubbing the maxillary sinus under my right eye: Guess the sound (it's nothing dodgy)
