Drink up:

Make sure to take enough fluids if you suffer from flu. Sometimes due to flu vomiting and diarrhea can cause dehydration.

Sip Some Soup:

“I believe that chicken soup does help with symptoms,” says Reid B. Blackwelder, MD, professor of family medicine at East Tennessee State University in Kingsport. But not all doctors agree that chemistry alone explains the soup’s apparent benefits. “When you lean over a bowl of hot chicken soup and the vapor gets up your nose, you feel better but some [of the benefit] is clearly emotional. It just makes you feel better having someone make soup for you.”

Take Plenty of Rest:
