This post is basically an open thread: how do you stay healthy? And how do you combat common illnesses like a cold or flu?
Too many bloggers posting illness:
On the link called Flu, you can see Batya posted my “get well concoction”. It’s not for major illnesses, just for viral ones like the common cold. She also suggested horseradish for me. I should try that one. I’ve been sneezing on and off all week, and it doesn’t seem to be the common cold, after all.
Here’s a good idea from Frumhouse (from Batya’s flu post):
Inhaling steam in the bathroom from a hot running shower cleared up a stuffy nose and eased a cough
My father suggested I get some sunshine today, so I did that, and I took down all our sukkah decorations in the process (the rest of the sukkah is coming down as I type, via husband and Eldest son). The sunshine did seem to help. Fits with all the new evidence that Vitamin D is important.
OK, your turn.
