Don't laugh: my grandmother used to take extra Vitamin C -- maybe 5000 mg a day, equal amount of Vitamin E, half that amount of D Vitamin. When she suspected it might be also flu or cold, sinusitis she ate chicken soup, sometimes just the broth, at least once a day. Chicken broth makes your nose run: helps break up congestion. It worked for her and there are plenty of testimonials for these 'cures'. She also drank mulled wine or a hot toddy when she knew it was a cold.
