When illness overtakes you, I've found that the best remedy is sleep. (The secret behind cold medicine? It makes you drowsy so you're forced to take a nap.) But when you're not asleep, what can you do to make that stifling cold a little more bearable? 

To cure the sniffles, use soft tissues. Once I was hit really hard with a fierce cold and went through several tissue boxes to stop by nose from running away. You can imagine what it did to me! I was Rudolph x100 with a really sore nose. So I highly recommend using soft tissues. It will make sickness all the more bearable.

To cure the cough, take Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa. If you're not Asian (I'm half), then you're probably thinking what IS that?! Well my friends, it's about to change your life and put Buckley's to bed. Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa is a Chinese natural herbal remedy used to relieve coughing, sore throat, hoarseness, and voice loss. Basically magic in a bottle. And guess what else? It actually tastes good. 

To cure the sore throat, gargle salt water. The salt will kill any bacteria loitering in your throat and I promise you'll feel the difference. (Just don't swallow it. That will just makes things worse.)

Also drink Iced Honey Lemonade. Honey and lemon act as disinfectants and carry a load of other healthy properties as well. And why the ice? A lot of people drink warm honey lemon tea when sick but hot beverages can make your throat feel worse. So drink it on the rocks.

Here's my recipe for Iced Honey Lemonade. It's also super tasty and healthy to drink when you're not sick (I'm drinking it right now!).
