What Do You Do When You Have A Cold?

Signs of a cold started 2 days ago. And today it is @ its peak.

What do you guys to do rid this virus?

I’ve already drank 2 gal. of water today.
Took a warm bath and feel better. How about the sauna?

I don’t know about when the cold is at it’s peak, but I start taking a lot of vitamin c as soon as the symptoms start to appear. But you have to catch it at the right time, I don’t know if that would help you now.

Easy. I don’t get them.

But if I were to magically, inexplicably get one, I’d do this:

Take a little more rest (for example, cut volume).

Up my multi-vitamin intake.

Up my vitamin C and E intake.

Drink more water than usual.

Avoid being outside in the cold for prolonged periods.

But then again, I don’t get sick so who am I to offer advice?

There is only one product that matters…

I don’t know why or how, or if it’s dangerous, but it works like a charm. Everyone I have given it to did not get a fullblown illness when they felt it coming on.

Personally I haven’t been sick since I found this stuff a few years ago.

AIRBORNE AS SOON AS YOU FEEL THE SYMPTOMS. They’re aren’t many things I claim will work but that stuff does. I dont know why it works so well?!?!

I take airborne twice a day if I start to feel a cold coming on.

And since I live in these shitty college dorms, I usually take one every 4-6 days just to keep my immune system up.

Airborne, Zicam Cold, Echinacea, and a Vitamin C capsule, 3 times a day. Knocks it out like a charm.

Maybe I’m wrong, but I think ZMA is a good supplement to use for prevention.

There is this stuff called cold-eeze (loaded with zinc) also Golden Seal (Echinacea) does wonders as well.-Jules
