Home Brewed Cold Remedy

I got this remedy from an Assyrian family that I work with. There is a little bit of a language barrier. so it took a couple of minutes to get to "turnip" but we got there!

1. Peel turnip
2. Cut into quarters
3. Cover with water and boil until soft
4. Drink the turnip water and eat the turnip

I haven't tried it but it sounds better than Advil Cold & Flu! It sounds like it works best for chest colds. I am really hoping not to get sick this winter (knock on wood) but if I do, I'm going to try it and will let you know what happens!
