Remedy

September 5th, 2013

Since Sunday, I've come down with a semi-mid-head-cold. I know, wat da heck is dat? Well, basically no fever, barely an infrequent runny nose, sore throat and just felt junky. Aftah some sleep, Monday was much bettah but still had sore throat. Tuesday was da same and Wednesday got a little worse as flem started to enter da picture.

Today, no mo' sore throat but it's irritated from all da kkkkkaaaaaagggghh-phtew dat you gotta do to help clear it out. No fever, no junkie feeling but I sometimes gotta cough cause of da irritation. I got some Halls action going on but it's just not cutting it. Plus, too much of dat makes it a laxative (bet you nevah know dat eh?)

So wat kine remedies you got besides gargling with Hawaiian salt and watah? Wat kine OTC (ovah da countah) kine medicines you guys take? Or you just suck it up.... literally?

Wat sucks da most is dat I no can hug and kiss Da Keiki or hold Da Baby and my hands are so frickin' dry and cracking cause of da choke hand washing I've been doing....

Wassup Wit Dat!

    :cool: Good Morning Everyone!!! :cool:

    ... hey Braddah Lance ... I get that once in a while too ... not a full-on cold or flu ... but just a few symptoms ... usually passes in a few days ... but here's my self-remedy ...

    ... I drink lots of water (and OJ because of the vitamin C) ...
    ... eat vitamin C ...
    ... just sleep, lots of rest does wonders ...
    ... if I have sore throat, I'd eat salty stuff (li hing mui kine stuffs) ...
    ... I I have congestion, I do my home version of steam inhaling, haha ... hot water in a bowl with my head over it and covered with a towel ... good to loosen up da congestion ... and moisten up the dry throat and nasal passage ... at least I like to think so ... if it works in my mind that's good enough for me ...

    ... OTC stuff ... hmmm, I sometimes try Airborne or Zicam ... stuff with lots of vitamins and echinacea ...

    ... hope you get better soon ...

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!! ...

    Got this Chinese herb thing called "Yin Chao". Echinacea plus lots of other stuff combined to fight the gala-galas and the yucks. Comes in glass vials with 8 pills in each. First dose take all 8 with hot tea, then 4 more every 8 hours. Should clear you up pretty fast. Miraculous stuff. Get 'em at Chinatown, stores that sell herbs, Chinese seasonings. If you go to internet, also available, but 5X more expensive, plus shipping. Good stuff!


  3. Bowling Buddy:

    For sore or scratchy throat try gargle with hydrogen peroxide and water(3 oz. cup - 1 oz. hydrogen peroxide and 2 oz. water). I also suck on "Fishermans Friend" cough drops. Strong but effective. I also take vitamin C daily. Afrin works for the stuck nose.


  4. M:

    I would just suck it up... :)


  5. GA Bows:

    Eh BL, I've been going through that same thing for a little over a week now.
    I just ride it out, drink lots of fluids and try to get as must rest as possible.

    Hope you get to feeling better soon!


  6. cojef:

    Sorry no kan help. nevah had something as bad as wat you describe. way back in the late mid 20's my mother used Vicks vapor rub on our chest. If in your chest, "rayboyjr" remedy with steaming hot water with towel may help clears chest of all the gunk in the chest.


  7. wafan:

    Uh-oh. I hope you feel better soon.

    Really? A laxative?!?!


  8. NKHEA:

    Howzit BL,

    Da best is drink couple tree cold ones with couple tree mo.....garens ballbarens make u feel betta :mrgreen:


  9. Glenn D:

    Sorry to hear that you not feeling so good. What used to work for me for scratchy and irritated throat was Cepacol lozenges. Those used to numb my throat and make me not feel da irritation. Pain medication like Tylenol works to numb da throat too. Da Alka Seltzer Cold and Cough works real good too. But really best if went to go see a doctor. You can get da doctor to prescribe "tesalon pearls" that makes the esophagus numb so that you don't try and clear your throat so much and promethazine for the phlegm. Take kea.

    First off, be careful. Three people this week told me they have/had bronchitis... one now has pnuemonia.

    My remedy for galas is this:
    1 chunk of ginger
    1 chunk of hasu (lotus root)
    Grate 'um. Squeeze out the juice into a mug. Pour in hot water. Drink.

    Hasu has mucin, which helps with the galas. (Think: Mucinex)
    Ginger is a miracle herb in Chinese and Hawaiian medicine.

    First time I tried it I figured if it didn't work I was only drinking hasu and ginger. No medicine. Buggah works, BL! I can sleep thru the night and feels so good.


  11. sally:

    My second remedy is ...you going laugh... that email remedy about rubbing Vicks VapoRub on the bottoms of your feet.

    Again, I figured if no work then I just gotta wash my feet. So I rubbed it on, put on socks, and guess what? NO COUGHING!

    Amazing! Fo' realz!


  12. Ynaku:

    My boy had da same thing and he went Dr. She no give him medicine that would cost me $5. He tell him go store and buy Alegria D I dunno why she no can just perscibe dat buggah. Expensive and he neva feel any bettah for awhile. Gave him Cepecol to relieve his throat pain. Drink plenty water, juice and Hot Tea.

    My friend says to take raw garlic and whiskey. Going chase da vampires and your family away :lol:

    My oddah friend made me Natural Apple Cider vinegar (Bragg Brand) and honey. That seems to help.

    Fell better soon so you can play with da keikis.


  13. Ynaku:

    Eh you work Hospital yeah? Go ask for samples :D


  14. sally:

    But wait! There's more! LOL LOL LOL!

    When I feel even a shmall hint of a cold (like a tingle in my sinus) I load up on Vit D and Elderberry. I take a 5000 mg Vit D 4-5 times in the day and as many Elderberry capsules.

    Yah Yah Vit D is a fat-soluble vitamin, but your body is in a state that is going to use it up and you're only taking it for that short time. Research Vit D, you'll get more info than I care to go into on this comment.

    Elderberry is an anti-viral.

    I have not had a full blown cold in 2 yrs.
