I don't know too much about homeopathy but it just makes sense to stick to natural remedies for something as minor as a cold - no reason for heavy pharms

I like this idea of trying something first at home with limited to no side effects as opposed to jumping right into conventional medicine! Def great info to keep in mind!

think you should always check with a real doctor that knows you history.

Thank you for the info. The most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands

Great information. I have always been interested in homeopathy. I want to start doing this for my family. I hate that my kids have been given so many antiobiotics.

These are great tips with Flu season just around the corner! I never thought to look for homeopathic medicines for my son's allergies!

I have always seen homeopathy as more of a mental thing and less of a chemical thing, but as someone who believes in natural remedies and avoids most pharmaceutical remedies, I like to see it when people talk about alternative medicine rather than shun it.

We don't even bother with drugs anymore, homeopathy has worked really well for us every winter and all year long! We take something at the onset of symptoms and it usually doesn't even take hold. We also take a lot of herbal remedies and garlic with honey when we know we will be exposed to lots of people.

It's interesting that although homeopathic treatments have no active ingredients, it somehow makes things better! I'm all for it!

I just started using homeopathic meds this year. I love Arnicare Gel. I was surprised that it works so well. My dad is in the medical field, so I grew up in a household of Big Pharma meds. I love discovering herbal remedies such as Oregano and Thyme tea to help relieve a cold.

Wow, I am not overly surprised by all of the ignorant comments to this post. I have used homeopathic treatments for many things for my children and I. I was skeptical at first, imagining that these might be placebo. But I have had amazing results with many of these treatments. That's not to say I use no doctor or prescription chemicals because I do. I do not however, run to the doctor for every little thing and take dangerous and harmful medicines for every ailment. You can all go pump yourselfs full of man-made chemicals and toxins. I guess you would rather put your health in the hands of a human being rather than the perfection of God and nature. You people are so co-dependent it makes me laugh.

i love all the suggestions. Since there isnt a real "cure" for the common cold, its great to find things that help with symptoms that are natural and may help keep immune system up to fight them off

I haven't tried many homeopathic treatments for the common cold, for example. I'd consider trying it for preventative measures, but if I get a cold or flu, I'd need to make sure I get back on my feet ASAP!! :)
