Here's what I found about that as a remedy--In a study published in the medical journal Chest, researchers made an exciting discovery. When they added chicken soup to a Petri dish full of inflammatory cells called neutrophils the ability of these cells to move around and migrate was decreased. Neutrophils are cells that help to fight infection but also cause inflammation which is responsible for some of the uncomfortable symptoms experienced with a cold. That something as simple as mom’s chicken soup has the ability to ease cold symptoms is nothing short of amazing.

And we would have some ginger tea for nausea.--NASA even used ginger to counter the nausea in outer space.
And Baking soda paste or ice for bee stings. Research has shown that ice is better than any pharmaceutical treatment. It is nice to know that science has validated mom's home remedies.
