I have a miserable cold too. 3rd day, Afrin nasal spray helps for about 4 hours. I should have taken cold eeze when it started.
Nasty tight cough too. Thanksgiving is that time of year.

We can't even get Cold-EEZE here. Taking zinc tablets doesn't have the same effect, trust me, I've tried.
We have several OTC sprays with Afrin's active ingredient oxymetazoline, but that stuff carries a risk of rebound congestion caused by overuse and, for some people, a vicious cycle of overuse and dependence that feels like an addiction. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/14/health....html?_r=0
I know first hand, it's happened to me in the past. Breathing normally again after using it for a week was probably as bad as the cold.
Guess I'll tough it out on that, but there is cough syrup with codeine OTC that helps you to fall asleep.

You have no right to go to sleep if you don't have preps in the home.
No sympathy here.
I suggest chicken soup.

Bicarb soda.. Works everytime..

Quote:Day 1: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water, six times a day, at about two-hour intervals.
Day 2: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water, four times a day.
Day 3: take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water in the morning and in the evening.
After this initial period, take ½ teaspoon of baking soda diluted in a glass of cold water every morning until your symptoms are gone.

Strange, I made a pot of refried beans with lots of Chipotle... was pretty spicy and I took some baking soda for indigestion last night, so I guess I've already started the program eh?

Hey NM! Happy Thanksgiving! Sorry to hear it, that's far worse than a cold, and generally requires spending a lot of money for a root canal or worse, getting it pulled gaah.gif
I feel for you, hope it works out as inexpensive as possible, and you have the best turkey day possible under the circumstances.

There used to be a thanksgiving of sorts here, but the church nixed it as pagan. From what I recall it was around September, harvest time, time to cut down the hemp.
There was a lot of THC in that wild hemp, so it wasn't really hemp at all. A friends grandmother used to work at the factory where they made rope from it, it was real sticky and made good rope.
She stood over a big vat of hot water and stirred the hemp in it to soften it up. She said she LOVED going to work. lmao.gif
Essentially she stood over a vaporizer all day.

Thanks and yes... sea buckthorn - mega does of vitamin c.

[Image: tyrnimarja.f10a2a9f-143e-4671-b307-b350a..._image.jpg]

Sea buckthorn is an herb. The leaves, flowers, and fruits are used to make medicine.

Sea buckthorn leaves and flowers are used for treating arthritis, gastrointestinal ulcers, gout, and skin rashes caused by infectious diseases such as measles. A tea containing sea buckthorn leaves is used as a source of vitamins, antioxidants, protein building blocks (amino acids), fatty acids and minerals; for improving blood pressure and lowering cholesterol; preventing and controlling blood vessel diseases; and boosting immunity.

Sea buckthorn berries are used for preventing infections, improving sight, and slowing the aging process.

The seed or berry oil is used as an expectorant for loosening phlegm; for treating asthma, heart disorders including chest pain (angina) and high cholesterol; for preventing blood vessel disease; and as an antioxidant. Sea buckthorn oil is also used for slowing the decline of thinking skills with age; reducing illness due to cancer, as well as limiting the toxicity of chemical cancer treatment (chemotherapy); balancing the immune system; treating stomach and intestinal diseases including ulcers and reflux esophagitis (GERD); treating night blindness and dry eye; and as a supplemental source of vitamins C, A, and E, beta-carotene, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids.

Some people apply sea buckthorn berries, berry concentrate, and berry or seed oil directly to the skin for preventing sunburn; for treating radiation damage from x-rays and sunburns; for healing wounds including bedsores, burns, and cuts; for acne, dermatitis, dry skin, eczema, skin ulcers, and skin color changes after giving birth; and for protecting mucus membranes.

In foods, sea buckthorn berries are used to make jellies, juices, purees, and sauces.

In manufacturing, sea buckthorn is used in cosmetics and anti-aging products.

How does it work?

Sea buckthorn contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and other active ingredients. It might have some activity against stomach and intestinal ulcers, and heartburn symptoms. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplement...0buckthorn

It has some crazy good health benefits - I did not know it was an herb puffpuffpass.gif Just considered it somewhere between a fruit and a berry.

I made some warm blackcurrant juice with honey. That really helped me get over this cold.

Quote:Per 100 g serving providing 63 calories (table), the fruit has high vitamin C content (218% of the Daily Value, DV, per 100 g) and good levels of iron and manganese (10-20% DV, table).


Phytochemicals in the fruit and seeds, such as polyphenols, have been demonstrated, with ongoing laboratory studies assessing their potential to inhibit inflammation mechanisms of heart disease, cancer, microbial infections or neurological disorders like Alzheimer's disease.[45][46]

Major anthocyanins in blackcurrant pomace are delphinidin-3-O-glucoside, delphinidin-3-O-rutinoside, cyanidin-3-O-glucoside, and cyanidin-3-O-rutinoside[47] which are retained in the juice concentrate among other yet unidentified polyphenols.[48][49]

Blackcurrant seed oil is rich in nutrients, especially vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid and gamma-linolenic acid.
