I have noticed there are alot of discussion about being sick but no one has posted a discussion about remedies to fix them!! When that's what i need... My son Is very sick at the moment I have just put on some broth to make some delicous chicken soup with galic and vegtables to go in later, this is what my mother and grandmother did when i was sick.. but it's never enough. What do you do to help your children combat a cold? or your selves when your sick even? I would really like to try anything. i t brakes your heart to see your children sick, especially when they look like they expect you to be able to make them better.

At the first sign of getting sick the best thing to do is drink plenty of fluids. This flushes out the toxins and germs. This works for me. I also like to drink ginger tea when I'm stating to feel sick. Ginger is good for congestion as well as it helps circulation. Slice some fresh ginger and boil it in a pot of water. I used to add brown sugar but now I just add lemon and honey.
