Ways to speed up cold recovery?

I went to my GP, and he confirmed that indeed, my head cold has turned into a chest cold with lung congestion. I'm on antibiotics, and while I hate taking them, I also know that my previous experiences with chest colds usually has not ended well. I'd rather have antibiotics than pneumonia or a hospitalization.

That said: Is there any complementary way to help speed my recovery from this cold of doom?

I'm drinking lots of fluids and had been taking zinc (didn't work).

Edit: I've looked through the entries with the "cold and flu" tag but didn't see much of use. I don't really eat/drink much dairy.
