Did I mention that I have not been sick with a cold or the flu for 5 1/2 years? I pick up 'bugs' from time to time but I take supplements thinking that the germs won't multiply and I never end up getting sick. I have no idea what I'm doing, but it works every time. Do you have an explanation?
At the first sign of a cold or flu, I take goldenseal tincture (a natural killer?) along with some honey if my throat feels sore in the slightest. I've read that bacteria can't live in honey. I take some echinaeca tinture and 2 garlic capsules (garlic kills everything). Every hour or so, I take something like olive leaf estract, grapeseed extract, 500 - 1000mg of vitamin C, zinc, and my regular vitamins. I might make some garlic tea or lemon drink, and/or vegetable broth. By evening all symptoms are gone. I work at keeping a healty immune system all the time.
I wonder if I am over doing it? I don't have any side effects... any suggestions?
