We all fall prey to bugs every now and then; perhaps one was lying dormant and got kicked into high gear after a night of partying, or maybe a sick friend got too cuddly and slimed you with their love . This list is meant to address what to do now that you've fallen ill, and want to be on the road to recovery that much faster - the plant based way! Especially if you rely on a certain amount of caffeine on your non-sick days, I would recommend sipping on organic teas with a bit of caffeine in them so a headache does not add to your sickness and completely crush your soul.
