The Flu Bug Bit Me
I'm anti-antibiotics and OTC stuff when it comes to the common cold/flu, with the exception of a little Advil to ease the head pain (which I think by now - a record 4 days in a row without coffee - has turned into caffeine withdrawl headaches - but that's another self-diagnosis/blog post altogether). No NyQuil, DayQuil, or other pretend to make you feel better meds for me (plus, they give me really weird dreams, so I prefer to not to take them in general.) I usually stick to the bedrest, fluids, and vitamin C routine (I'm sure that's recommended somewhere...and I am feeling mostly better.)
So I thought there may be some eco-friendly flu remedies out there (of course I'm checking AFTER the fact...) - and as I expected Ideal Bite had a couple of things...
On the prevention end:
A few hand sanitizer solutions so you're not caught off guard without some good ol fashioned soap'n'water.
For a little relief:
Some herbal cold remedies
I think I'll go get a little hand sanitizer - the subway is an awful germy place....
