Top 6 cold remedies from NJ 101.5 listeners
It's cold season. Whether you have a perfectly working immune system or you have health issues, there's a good chance this year, or any year, you'll get some of the symptoms of the common cold.
Although I haven't been sick in a few years, the streak ended this weekend.
Friday night into Saturday, I came down with about every cold symptom you can imagine.
You've seen all the ads that show people hours before the big presentation battling the worst of a cold, and then magically they're better after a tablespoon.
For me, none worked. What did work was a good old-fashioned "hot toddy" recommended by my mother-in-law.
It's simple, one shot of juice from a freshly squeezed lemon, one shot of honey and one shot of bourbon. Heat for a bit and sip like tea. Tasty and helpful.
So what's your go-to cold remedy? I asked our audience and here are three more suggestions that stood out.
Hot Chocolate and Brandy
Smell the sauce from a hot order of wings
Drops of oregano oil
Vicks VapoRub to feet and put on socks
Alcohol on a Q-tip and swab your nose
