Ginger tea is my regular remedy.

You require a tea strainer, or a special herbal kettle. Take a thumb sized lump of ginger, cut it finely, and steep it in hot water. Add honey and lemon juice to taste.

The honey will be nice and soothing, the lemon will give you a vitamin C injection, and the ginger is a very good anti-nausiac [and a mild anti-depressant]. It's about the only thing that makes me human when I wake up feeling nauseous. Which is, uh, a lot.

I'm very intrigued by this marmalade idea, too. More for the love of marmalade than anything.

I have used marmalade as a sweetener in tea since I started drinking Earl Grey (I generally use other sweeteners in other teas). I was under the impression this was not an uncommon thing to do. Anyway, it's excellent.

Spicy home made salsa is great when I cant breathe out of my mouth.

Also, theres a vietnamese soup restaurant nearby. the soup is called pho, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ph%E1%BB%9F
it is the richest soup ever.

Miso soup, and anything with onions or garlic. Vitamin C won't steer you wrong, either.
