Oscillococcinum By Boiron is amazing. If you can start taking it wen you feel it coming on it can arrest it’s progression but if underway it will like the cold FX help shorten the duration.
Another home remedy … DO NOT DO if you have heart problems or low blood pressure. And best if some one else is at home to help. Great if your affliction is bacterial - not as good for virus - that take time
1. Make a pitcher of home made lemonade with honey (no alcohol)
2. Before you start the bath set up your bed by layering a couple of layers of blankets and on top 2 - 3 sheets.
3. Draw a bath of moderately warm to hot water and add 1 tablespoon of ginger, 1 tablespoon of Ginger and a tablespoon of dry mustard.
4 In your sink put a sheet in cold (very cold) water
5 Sit in the tub for 20 - 30 minutes and drink the lemonade. With the mustard, ginger & ginger mix it will feel quite hot. The lemonade will make you start sweating.
6 get out of the tub. This is where you need to be careful as you are going to wrap yourself in the cold sheet. This will assist in getting you to sweat off but will lower your blood pressure quickly.
7 Now go lay on your bed wrap yourself with the sheets and blankets and go to sleep for 30 min. This will elevate your temperature and if it is bacterial infection it will assist the body in burning off the bug.
8 go have a shower wash off the spices and relax or go back to bed.
