I try to stay away from over-the-counter medications so, I think that my recovery has been a little more gradual than normal. I have been drinking a honey and lemon mixture throughout the day. I also eat fruits rich in antioxidants and vitamin C as much as possible. My faves are grapefruits, raspberries and blueberries. Also, some of my mom's homemade soup really helped when I had no appetite.
I also had some echinacea tea almost every night. Echinacea is a plant that promotes T-cell activation while it increases the activity of the immune system. Essentially, it makes your body more ready to fight off illnesses and infection. This stuff is the truth! I tell anyone I know who is sick or feels like they are getting sick, to pick up some echinacea tea.
