Geez, Im not sure how to shake this. Voice gone, Im coughing throat sore, feel like crap. Keeping going. Doing the hot drinks, soup, (I put turmeric in it, tarragon, herbs, spices). Just taken some flu tablets, whether they work or not - don't know. I have got to shake it, kids go back to school monday, which means I m back driving on the road between 8 and 9.30 in the mornings, and then between 2 and 5 in the evenings! Ive gotten freezes, hands and feet getting cold ! No jokes about menopause - Im getting there (42) Ideas everyone - what do you do?

sounds terrible, I would suggest some ginger&lemon tea sweetened with some honey (gentle on your throat) and pinch of cayenne pepper if you are brave (for circulation to get the tea remedy to travel faster to the ailing parts of your body as well as warm you up from the inside) hope it helps it has worked for me&my partner from time to time!

I generally rely on a hot lemon and honey mix as it seems to work. Try this one :- 6 lemons cut into sections, squeezed into a large jug and all the lemon pieces added. Top up with boiling water, plus several large spoons full of clear honey, and stir until the honey dissolves and the lemons infuse into the hot water. Add a few cloves and leave the jug to cool down a little. You can also add brandy or whiskey if you wish ;-)
