I Feel Terrible

in every possible way. Hope this helps:

Some flu experts believe that cold drinks increase congestion, whereas warm drinks loosen secretions and are more flu-friendly. Try sipping a hot toddy before bed to help you sleep and clear your stuffy head.

1. Boil a cup or two of water and pour into a mug.

2. Place an herbal tea bag or a decaffeinated tea bag into the mug and steep for 5 minutes.

3. Add 1 to 2 tsp. honey to the tea.

4. Add one shot (approximately 2 oz.) of bourbon, whiskey or rum.

5. Stir thoroughly.

6. Breathe in the steam from the hot toddy as you sip.

One hot toddy a day is plenty. Too much alcohol is bad for mucus membranes and will be counterproductive.
