Good foods for a cold? I'm in that congested phase where my nose runs like a waterfall and I feel like I'm going to sneeze every 5 seconds but nothing happens. Goddammit!
spicy ramen with 2 types of garlic: raw garlic, and sautéed garlic and eggy
-make ramen and add as toppings:
add a pat of butter (non salted if possible)
1 hard boiled egg
about a WHOLE garlic (use half for raw and half for cooked) (use at least 3/4ths if you want to get over your cold)
something to make it spicy-it must be spicy in order to cure you you know, sweat out your toxins, burn off your infection (thats what fevers do)
drink lots of water and mineral (sparkling) water
remember the meme:
starve a fever feed a cold
also if u brown asian just get spicy pho add garlic
There are much better ways to provide relief for cold symptoms that don't suppress your immune response and with a much lower diuretic effect.
You might as well tell the guy to 420 blaze it, because that's basically what you sound like, but for your booze.
less fun is less better
you can make a citrus tea with herbs and dose it with a small amount of liquor that isn't going to have a large effect on fluid digestion or immune system response and will help quite a bit with many other symptoms
over all - fuck off prudewaddle
It didn't become a folk remedy for no good reason, and really, though I drink like hell and never get sick, if I ever did, I would have a hot toddy or some whisky, just like all the generations before me who know the relief and comfort it can provide.
You can Google whatever you like and find something to corroborate your beliefs with science. The weekly pop-sci toss up, what a fucking laugh.
Drink your cough syrup, or whatever. Tiny doses of powerful dissociative drugs mixed in with garbage to make kids throw up if they try to have fun with it. Godspeed.
spicy food and bland carbs, friend, as much fruit juice as you can keep down two for your vit c game
remember to elevate your head when you sleep too! it'll help your sinuses drain
i always huff vaporub from a bowl full of boiled water with a towel over my head when i'm horrible stuffy, it makes you smell like a grandpa but you probably cant smell much right now so it doesnt matter that much.
i was you on monday, and tonight i can breathe through my nose enough to sleep fine and the cough is almost passed
I was feeling like shit in the midst of a busy week and asked a guy from Burma for something good when sick that I could pick up on my way home one night. I got some white fish and shrimp soup - light broth, but a little salty and heavy on garlic, basil, citrus, and chili pepper - with rice. It did the same trick as chicken soup, maybe a little better with the garlic, citrus, and chili. Anyway, it is now one of my favorites in order to vary things up when I feel like crap, though I typically leave out the shrimp. A typical Thai hot and sour soup would be close.
One of these with a bottle of Franks clears me right up
