Post à la Ayya/Erzulie

Yes. My first attempt at illustrated poetry.
(مو بالجملة.. إهداء لولاّدة)
I believe his songs have healing powers.
I'm sick of Strepsils. Any other recommendations?

Now you've opened up the gates for every well-intentioned would-be doctor in the country... Brace yourself for remedies ranging from ginger and lemon to camel urine to a shot of cognac

Ignore them all and just sit this one out. Time is the best healer

Wiskey in a big ol' jar


Purgatory said...

1) Nyquil or Dayquil
2) Hot Milk with honey and ginger
3) OJ and Lemon Juice

However since your body doesn't get enough vitamens and minerals, you might take longer to heal.

Nyquil/Dayquil doesn't help with sour throat

Warm green tea :)

Orofar wayid a7san min strepsils

Purgatory said...

It does.

iDip said...

Drink Cammomile or Ginger.. with honey, and wrap your precious neck with a scarf while hanging out.

نسأل الله لكِ راحة في الحلقوم وشفاء يدوم
والحاجات الباردة مالهاش لزوم

Isla mint and Sterimar

They are the best in healing accompanied with drinking a lot of liquids.

kwtia said...

Apologes to Zaydoun, but i have to recommend the ginger, honey and lemon in a tiny cup of hot water cure...and if you are brave, add a pinch of cayenne, and a pinch of garlic to the mix...

Q8Maverick said...

Salamat Shoroq,


Honey & Warm water first thing in the morning (work wonders)

Thank you guys.

I couldn't just ignore it.. My throat was killing me :/

I don't drink Whiskey.
I no longer listen to Metallica.
God must be proud of me.

I had the milk/honey/ginger and it really helped.
Shukran 3ammo.

Feeling much better now
Thanks 7abibti :*

I'm not big on tea but I will have some later :) Merci

You're right.. It is a7san. I'm taking it now.

Been craving ice cream since last night :/
And I just took off mom's coat and wrapped it around my neck.

E walla.. A few Advil cold & sinus pills worked their magic last time I had a flu. I better get it.

It could be e7m e7m.. madri.

Orofar is working great for my throat.. but it's too sweet for my taste.

Shopaholic Q8eya said...

Purg, are you hushing me? and infront of Shurouq?

Shurouq, take action please ;P

Shopaholic Q8eya said...

Oh, and I am glad you feel better already ;*

سلامات شروق، نلتقي ضروري

"D" said...

Ok it's nasty, but works wonders:
Shot of olive oil
Then have the lemon honey and ginger combo.

AyyA said...

7ayati wallah, how did you know that this is one of my favorite songs :***
I recommend a daily dose of vitamin C 1000, and Isla-Moos.
ah, you have to mix that with love :D

Dr.Lost said...

try this:

Natural way: Honey.. and lemon freshly squeezed in a cup, add some salt to it.. and gulp it down.. one long sip.. dont think twice and just swallow :)

Medical way: take the following for sore throat: Panadol (either pandol EXTRA, or the one that says cold and flu on it.

runny nose too? try : clarinase or fludrex

if all of the above fails: you'll need antibiotics for a few days..

Dr.Lost said...

purg and shopa: stop fighting little ones, the poor woman is sick , she has to deal with you two as well? ;p

(ok ana shaku i know.. im leaving :)

Ms.Baker said...

Oh, Shurouq salamaat, mat shoofeen shar...

Dr. Lost is right about the panadol cold and flu. Also Purgatory's ginger and honey/lemon concoction works. I also love NIce cough drops (cherry). They take the edge off a sore throat from flu.

But I think everyone has already offered up some pretty good remedies and you are probably over it by now :)

Ms. B

Ms.Baker said...

P.S. If you like Bill Withers, try Grover Washingtons Jr.'s Winelight :) It's a classic.


Ms.Baker said...

P.P.S. Whoops, i seem to remember the Bill Withers song being from Winelight, LOL!
