I try to eat nutrient-dense foods, particularly fermented foods like miso soup, to build my immune system. Lemon and ginger tea with honey and cayenne is a great help to soothe the throat, and hot peppers like cayenne actually have more vitamin C than citrus.

I mostly just complain, and there is no way I would take time off. Only if I was dead.

I take a hot shower, and wear sweats to bed and sweat it out. It works most of the time.

Eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink a lot of water (even though I do anyways), take cold medicine if I need it, and rest a lot.

I take medicine if I can't stand it, suck on cough drops constantly, drink water if my throat doesn't hurt too bad and try to rest as much as possible.

Vitamin C, stay hydrated with electrolytes, and rest.

But I rarely get sick ever since I had my tonsils removed. When I had my tonsils, I had continuous terribad tonsillitis and strep for years.

I picked like half of the things on the list. I try to rest and drink fluids and pray that wards it off. I always look up my symptoms online too. I don't know why because it always tells me I'm about to get the black plague or cancer...

I make ginger lemon tea. It actually works really, really well. If you'd like, you can see my recipe here.
