how to cure the common cold

I have a nagging cold that just won't go away, but I think I have finally found a cure!  A bowl of spicy pumpkin soup and a hot toddy.  
the soup: I baked some sugar pumpkins, scooped them out, threw them in some mushroom stock made from this goop, added in some cumin, chili powder, coriander, a little bit of brown sugar, and some milk, and finally topped it with a little sharp cheddar cheese and some baked pumpkin seeds.  I made myself a hot toddy (hot water, a shot of whiskey, lemon and honey.) and discovered that the two together made me feel better than cold medicine used to before they took out the Pseudoephedrine.  
Happy Halloween!
