    So I've got a respiratory infuction. Last night I took 2 Benadryl to help me sleep along with Zinc and a multi-vitamin to try and knock the shit out of this cold.

    Around 1AM I woke up tossing and turning until 5am, when I finally rolled out of bed. I had a HUGE Migraine sinus headache and I can't afford another lost nights sleep before next week.

    Anybody have any home remedies I can try tonight to get some decent rest?

    I ran out of the Nighttime sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, so you can rest medicine.

    honey fresh ginger tea. add a lil booze. ya are sleepy and breathing easier.

    horseradish or tabasco sauce. anything hothothot will clear your sinuses on the damn quick.

    fresh ginger mixed with any moisturizer is better than any store bought vapor rub. relly great in combo with a hot shower.

    finally cough tea.


    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 Tablespoon honey
    • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    • 2 Tablespoons water
      Mix and take by the teaspoon
    tastes like refried ass but really works. mix about 3 teaspoons into a glass of OJ to kill the flavor if ya need to.

    To cough, or not to cough?
    That is the congestion.

    Two things:

    Drink elephant piss (recipe below)
    Take some Nyquil


    Elephant piss:

    1. Put in your blender:

    -- One big (or two small) cloves of garlic
    -- Juice of one fresh lemon
    -- Some zest (skin) from the lemon
    -- 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey
    -- 6 - 8 oz very hot water
    -- Dash of cayenne pepper or Tabasco sauce

    2. Blend well

    3. Drink up

    If it's not too late, run out and get more medicine.

    also, chicken soup w/ lots of garlic does wonders...
