Just as my all-day nausea was starting to wane (now that I am 12 weeks), and only be after-5-pm-nausea, I got hit hard with a cold. This is probably sicker than I have ever been with a cold. After throwing up at work for 6 weeks i finally had to call out sick today because I was throwing up plus dead with the cold. It's not pneumonia, or the flu, or anything dramatic. But I am sick of being sick! I haven't felt well for a single day in 6 weeks! I was just starting to get hopeful! I would love any suggestions about helping my immune system to kick this thing.
Sorry for the whining but I can't help myself.
I think the best way of dealing with the holistically is at the onset of symptoms. I usually take aconite 12 (homeopathy) for colds, you can also try EmergenC, and raw garlic and honey shooters. All work best at the very beginning of a cold. Hope you feel better soon.

I make liberal use of the neti pot to keep the congestion under control and prevent a sinus infection. Also mega doses of vitamin C. I take it in powder form (sodium or calcium ascorbate) and mix with juice. You can take 10 grams a day, but I would recommend starting lower and working your way up. Too much for your system causes diarrhea. So sorry you're dealing with this on top of m/s! I had a cold for a week when I was 6-7 weeks and it was awful.
