It's been so long since I've been this sick. Does anyone out there have any special HOME remedies that they use?
I absolutely hate prescription or over the counter medicines.

Symptoms:

Can't breathe
Runny eyes and nose
Coughing
Headache

Try this...Boil some water, add a tea bag and a piece (the size of your thumb nail) of Ginger root. Let it steep a while, and then drink the tea (But not the ginger root). It will help at least three of your symptoms.

I don't have any ginger here. My moms nanny used to broil an onion and then add brown sugar. It made a cough syrup and actually tasted pretty good.

I like the sound of the ginger!

Let's see.
In your place I'd try feverfew, and lemonbalm. But try this.

Raid your spice cabinet. get some rosemary (anti inflamatory) thyme (expectorant) and some sage (another expectorant) boil some water, and steep the herbs for about 7 minutes. Sweeten with honey and add some lemon. That may help. Good luck.

The sage is also anti-viral, so if it's just a virus--it'll help with that too.

You can also, just inhale the steam to clear your sinuses.

I took a really hot shower and the steam worked great for about 30 min. I was in the wind and cold this last weekend. I went to Vegas and it was in the 50-60's and when I left here it was in the 80's. I'm sure all that wind didn't help!

I'm not used to getting sick!

Can't understand the objection to medicine. Whenever I have a rotten cold, I eagerly take a couple of those jelly bean sized 'nighttime' cold capsules (usually dirt cheap version Walmart sells), and crawl into a bed piled high with quilts.

A day or two of that and the cold will sweat itself out. And the crazy dreams the meds induce are quite fun.
