An Alternative to Yakapsule and Kisspirin

, , 10 comments
I've got a cold three days ago. I already had that feeling that night that by morning I will have a cold as my throat is starting to get itchy and I feel like I'm restless. So I immediately ran at a nearby store and grab myself a pack of Plus Orange Drink. Whenever I have this cold, I don't regularly opt for a medicine or water therapy. Instead, I just buy packs of Plus Orange Drink for my own treatment. 




Hubby is not around so I don't have my usual "yakapsule + kisspirin". LOL! And since I am pregnant, I am not allowed to take medicines unless my OB Gyne advices me to do so. I asked a friend what I need to do and she just recommends me a water therapy but I am not really into "water therapy" thing. So I have to stick with my own treatment, drinking "Plus Orange Drink" to lessen my burden. Yesterday my cold was really bad that I have to rest for a while. I asked mom to buy some drinks for me to start my meditation quickly. After drinking 5 packs of it for the whole day, I got a good sleep and I was able to continue my work. Today, I feel relieved and my cold was gone. Great right? I've been doing this method for the past five years whenever I got colds. This is the quickest way and it always works for me. You might wanna try it next time you got colds and tell me if it will work out for you too.

  1. Nice alternative you have in there sis. You can also try Gatorade, or Del Monte pineapple juice. It's effective too. You can choose between sweetened and unsweetened. I also advise if you drink it pure, not with water so the effect will occur faster. I hope you're doing good now as well as the baby :)

    1. I haven't drink Gatorade ever since also not an avid fan of pineapple juice but I drink it whenever I dine out since I am not allowed to drink softdrinks. :) Colds are gone and I'm doing great. Thanks Genzel!

  3. Hi sis! Nice blog of yours. Well, Plus Orange Drink is good for you since it contains Vitamin c. Just try Calamansi juice to boost your immune system. Followed you and hope you follow me back thanks :)

  4. This is the first time I have heard of this therapy. I really prefer home remedies too than medications because I don't want my body to become immune with medications plus, home remedies are cheaper and way more effective. Whenever I have colds, I gargle with warm water and salt and drink lots of warm calamansi juice with honey. :)

    1. You should try this sometime Jenn :) Oh btw, a friend of name, actually you have the same name, a nurse told me to drink warm calamansi juice with honey but there's no honey in the ref so I just stick with my own remedy.

    3. Ever since di talaga ako mahilig uminom ng tubig kaya my OB kept on reminding me to drink drink drink lots of water, stubborn lang talaga ako kasi nahihirapan din ako pabalik balik CR if madami ako naiinom.

      Our little princess will arrive by October. Don't worry I'll definitely share that precious one with you guys. Hoping that I can also write up a blog post just like what I read on others. From water break out unto delivery.
