I have a friend who uses lots of herbal and natural homeopathic remedies for her family. I bet she'd have lots of ideas for me to get rid of this yucky cold. I know I remember her saying she uses Astragalus all the time and that it is great for the immune system or something and keeps them healthy. I don't know why I never think of these natural remedies when I'm sick though, probably cuz I have a hard time thinking at all while I'm sick lol. I don't even remember to take any kind of medicine unless someone like Hubby reminds me.
