Suggestions on what to eat, drink, and/or do when feeling a head cold and body aches?
What are your thoughts on saunas when ill?
Looking forward to some speedy recovery suggestions.
Bone broth. All day, every day.
It is just occurring to me that the old folk remedy of chicken soup may have more to do with bone broth than chicken.

I don't really try to shorten the duration of colds only because I have this old fashioned idea that if you conquer the whole cold by letting it run its course, you strengthen your immune system. But I often think completely bass-ackwards on things.
I like broth with a little lemon juice and some black or cayenne pepper in it. Lots of water.
And a lot of sleep.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
Thanks for the healthy tips.
Takes so much out of a person being sick, I just can't wait to be active again.
Cod liver oil might help. On more than one occasion I felt a cold brewing so I took CLO and also ate some caviar and the cold didn't materialise. Maybe gelatin as well? And I think generally whole foods and low sugar.
