Yikes! Sorry to hear you're so sick Amanda.
My parents had quite a few home remedies while I was growing up. Can you believe my dad would make me snort hot salt water through my nose and spit it out my mouth whenever I was congested? Um...I wouldn't recommend that...it's just as unpleasant as it sounds. I always liked it when my mom made hot lemon and honey water though. Good stuff.
I had a friend in college that would only eat oranges and steamed onions when she was sick. She swore by it, but I've never tried it because it sounds almost as bad as snorting hot salt water.
Good luck and get well soon.
