If it’s winter where you live, it’s cold and flu season. When you’re feeling stuffy and achy and your throat is sore, you want a remedy that works. Unfortunately, many popular remedies aren’t proven to be effective once you’re sick. Your best bet: a bowl of chicken soup. While this home remedy won’t get rid of your fever, it can help clear nasal passages, soothe a sore throat, and combat dehydration.
