Being sick and working out

With the rain coming and upcoming winter holidays I wanted to remind everyone when to stop pushing yourself in a go-go-go society. If you are sick and it is below your neck, ie throat,lungs, or stomach don't work out! If it is congestion sometimes the air being forced through the airways helps to loosen it, as well as get the blood pumping and flushing out toxins.
Here are some at home remedies to try if you find yourself in an extreme congestion
1. saline rinses (netti pot, non drug sprays, etc)
2. steam rooms/hot shower 2x-3x a day
3. hot tea
4. spicy foods
5. maintain proper hydration
6. multi-vitamin
7. ecchinacea
