      Great! I got a cold..

      ...which made for a great weekend. Does anyone know of a way to get rid of a cold without medicine?

      I don't know if you count this as medicine, but if taken within 24 hours of showing symptoms of a cold, start taking vitamin C supplements (like the vitamin C drops in citrus flavors), and you will reduce the duration of the cold. Eat a ton of them. I've even started taking them after 36-48 hours of showing signs, and the vitamin C drops really helped get rid of it fast! The drops are good and your cold won't last long.

      Oh, and drink water all day long. That helps, too. Good Luck!

      Fresh-squeezed hot lemon tea with honey and bourbon.
      Lemon = Vit. C.
      Honey = soothes the throat
      bourbon = helps you sleep

      That's an old family favorite and has helped me since I was a kid (use just a splash of bourbon, though, if you're young and your parents approve). And I second what everyone else has said about Vitamin C and Zinc, although there is a limit to the amount of Vitamin C your body can hold and use in a day, so once you exceed that, you'll just urinate out any excess.

      Get some extra strong mints or something, it'll keep your sinuses (sp?) clear so you wont even know you've got a cold.

      Hey, thank you for that advice. I haven't thought of mints, but it seems simple enough to give it a try.

      Eucalyptus oil also works well to clear the senses. Just put a few drops on a piece of cloth and tie it around your neck or hold it to your nose and breathe deeply whenever you're feeling stuffy.

      Obviously there are worst things than having a cold in this world. There are more important things in the world than having a website for discussing lucid dreaming, etc... So what? I posted the question here because I wanted to get some advice. Those who wanted to contribute to answering my question, did. I appreciate the responses I got and I tried some of what was reccomended and I feel better. Everyone is willing to contribute their opinions to help someone get a LD, OBE, etc. I don't see how asking for advice for a health related issue is of less importance.
