It’s cold and flu season and along side the swapping of germs is the sharing of home remedies.

One lucky winner will receive a prize package and the submitted remedies will be published in the Nelson Star on January 29th.

Sponsors are Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences, Kootenay Co-op and Natural Choice Pharmacy.
