    There's such a thing as 10-12 hours sleep??

    Bone Broth (recommend organic bones). Turn it into a soup for something more delicious. You will be surprised! And whole chicken broth turned into soup (I usually go an Asian style soup so you can pack it full of garlic & ginger).

    Regular hot showers where I sit on the floor and just breathe in the steam and cough/blow the snot and mucus out as much as possible. As soon as you get out it gets all blocked again but at least you have cleared a heap whilst in there. I have like 6 showers a day when I am sick like that.

    I agree I love a hot hot shower when blocked up, or any kind of sick actually!!

    I also second the cold and flu tablets.

    Yes it does. If I feel like I'm coming down with something I drink it every few hours. Have fought heaps of things off or only gotten a mild version of whatever it is plenty of times. It's a staple in our house.

    Great tips, thanks! I was planning on trying the olive leaf oil so will get onto that.

    I am going to try these now. I suffer with horrible sinus issues (takes nothing for them to get blocked) and if I can take something to try and ward if off, even better.
