drink vitamin C.
REST
Take orange juice or lemonade (without sugar.) wherever you go.

Personally, I agreed with Mamma. And I also agree with the above answerer when he said with what ever your religion is it it give you a pissy attitude. How can you NOT care about others getting sick???? Get the vaccine and quit banishing those that disagree with you. You asked the question. Deal with it.

Have you had the flu shot yet and if you are currently sick ask to get the mist. and wash your hands a lot through out the day, and maybe go see your doctor.

Hot and Sour soup from a chinese restaurant. Can't explain why it works, but it does. At least for a few of us.

You have to take it within 12-48 hours of the onset of symptoms but it can cut the duration of the flu down by 1/2.

Otherwise, lots of vitamins, fluids, and rest is about all you can do. And Tylenol for the fever of course.

PS. Whatever religion it is, it sure is pissy :P

You can go to the doctor and get a rx for tamiflu, it lessens the severity and life of the influenza virus if taken within 48 hours of symptoms. I comes in pill form, not a "vaccine", but i don't know if it conforms to your religion. That is the only proven way to actually control the severity of the flu.


MamaSmurf
You don't get vaccinations because of a religious thing. But you don't mind infecting those that are around you or causing someone with a chronic illness to become extremely ill or even die from what they caught from you. But you will go to the hospital cause you had the flu so bad.....get vaccinated....No debate...don't feel like it. ....Enjoy your case of the flu and stay away from others......
