Welcome Wednesday: Successful Home Remedies for Illnesses

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Mar 24, 2021

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday!

In the part of the world I live, we are entering the season where it is still very cold at night, but it gets quite warm during the day.

This also has the side effect of a number of people getting clods or the flu around this time. When I was younger, my Mom always did specific things to take care of me many of which are things I will continue to do even today to get better. 

For me, watching old 90's cartoon (thanks to Disney+) and eating grilled cheese sandwiches always seem to help the recovery process. I'm not sure if there is scientific proof of that, but at least it puts me in a better mental state.

What are some of the rituals that you perform to help speed up the recovery of a cold or flu?

Please share in the comments below!


Preferably the Honey One  :-)

For cold or flu with sore throat, my mom used to follow some of the below home remedies, which I also follow till date:

- To drink warm liquids like tea, coffee.

- Drink plenty of water per day.

- Drink honey mixed with ginger drops for sore throat, twice a day.

- Take steam at night before bed time.


That's what I remember.

All of those sounds great @Taranjeet Singh!

Thank God I have never had the FLU; and I have had very little cold symptoms, but some. To avoid the cold we would drink Orange Juice the 100% and it managed to work for me. I barely get colds.

For anything that made us stuffed up, we would get a hot toddy like tea drink and a grilled cheese with tomato soup. I still think that the grilled cheese with tomato soup is the magic cure to most ills.
