Get well soon Iris! Drink lots of strong green tea + hot miso soup (with loads of seaweed/tofu). It really works.
If you've a nasty/persistent cough, I suggest: boiling Coca Cola with lemon slices. Yeah, it sounds gross but I've recommended the remedy to my friends and it worked every time (according to them anyhow).
I don't know about you but I never take Western medicine for small things like the 'flu or the common cold. Consequently, I've had the 'flu twice in the last two decades and I rarely get a cold, too. Only once last year.
Jen, Thank you very much for the cure. Sounds like what I would have done, too. I like all natural stuff. I never really take medicine for a cold, either. Strong green tea with miso soup? I dig it! Will try that.
As to cola...Mm...let me think about it more. Ha ha...not too sold on that one!
I wish I am as tough as you are, only got sick once a year? How do you do that? ( ;
