    It depends on the root cause - Infection occurs when the immune system is weak - so concentrate on building immunity - certain herbs can help and are better than drugs (more benign)

    Upper what? GI symptoms? Get any number of over the counter remedies; ask the pharmacist. Upper respiratory? Do the same thing.

    lots of fluids .. fluids help thin secreations so they can be excreted by coughing as well as deep breathing excercizes .. look into something called an incentive spirometer those really help when dealing with respiratory issues...as well as taking vitamins.
