We all know about the chicken soup. All singers are into the lemon juice/honey/etc. Eucalyptus mint tea is pretty good, too. I believe I’ve posted before about my strong allegiance to hot and sour soup as a Chinese cold and flu remedy.
Now, here’s another good one, from India of all places: turmeric milk. Thank you, Indian foodbloggers!
I do not advise just drinking hot milk with turmeric in, either though this is apparently the approved Indian grandmother way. Most of us just don’t like turmeric that much. I do the modified version: make chai tea, add a bunch of turmeric, add milk. Not quite as good as regular chai, but still pretty good.
And the turmeric is really good at stopping that down the throat nasal drip. Not forever, but for a short while.
