‘Tis the season for flu and colds, and scientists now agree that good old chicken soup does have properties than can ease the misery. Liquids are always good for a cold, but hot broth is especially soothing. Hounds like to add even more heat with chilis and ginger; any ingredient to make the nose run is a good thing!

Rick_V swears by the magical combination of Thai ingredients: Chilis, lemongrass, garlic, galangal, kaffir lime, and fish sauce, in a chili paste-infused broth. Now, that will clear your sinuses! It may not be a cure, but you’ll feel better and time will do the rest.

The Mayo Clinic chimes in.
