Many, none I trust: If indeed your condition is due to a viral infection your immune system will eliminate the virus. There are countless home remedies, herbs and spices that reportedly help people recover from illness but I have no convincing evidence that they work. The best advice is to rest and let your immune system eliminate the infection. Get well soon. http://bit.ly/1hKZ4wy
