Somebody please remind me what a good natural remedy horseradish is for congestion. I have not wanted to eat, and have not felt like eating for several days. I have had a temperature up to 102. I have taken mucus relief medicines, antihistamines, fever reducers, pain killers, decongestants, and I have slept a lot. Drank plenty of fluids. Had hubby go get me a Coke, as that is a remedy the doctor would prescribe when I was a little one, Coke syrup from the drug store soda fountain. After drinking that, I got hungry. I ate some hot dogs with horseradish mustard and some baked beans. First things I could actually taste in days. Boy, that horseradish opened up my sinuses.I have been chewing on candied ginger to stop my cough when I could not take any more medicine, but I think it is time for me to go eat horseradish on something else now. I guess I forget what to do because it has been a long time since I had a bad cold or ran a fever. I know I have seen a lot of my friends complaining of colds, I guess it is just that time of year. This one will probably last at least a week, Do your colds last that long?
