Since Ted Nugent is either dead or in jail so that live performances of "Cat Scratch Fever" have been eradicated from the face of this planet, it is niaou time to suggest some homeopathic remedies. 

Dubious can also resume his indulgences because Lent is over for the year.

Excerpts from Practical Herbalism

Catnip is one of the traditional cold and flu remedies. It is an excellent diaphoretic, and its ability to induce sleep while producing perspiration without increasing the heat of the system makes it a valuable drink in every case of fever.

As a carminative with antispasmodic properties, the herb also eases any stomach upsets, dyspepsia, flatulence, and colic. Its sedative action on the nerves adds to its generally relaxing properties.

Catnip is one of the most popular herbs in stress formulas where it is included for its sedative effect. Perhaps the most popular use of catnip is as an herbal tea consumed just before bedtime. It has a very long list of folk uses which is understandable since it is often difficult to get a good night's sleep in today's fast paced world.

Catnip contains aromatic compounds that have a sedative effect, relieve smooth muscle spasms and induce sweating.
