Truley, I am no doctor, but I can give some awesome advice on how to get rid of common sicknesess, such as:
Coughing- Try to drink some warm beverages like hot tea, coffee, or hot chocolate!
Hiccups- Hold your breath for a few seconds, or just have someone scare you.
Runny Noses- Obviously, stay away from hot water! Just drink more water and that will do the trick!
So you can listen to me, or just go google it and find out yourself.
