Funny I should run across this today. I woke up with a small cough and couldn't understand why I couldn't control it. My throat is beginning to feel a little scratchy. I hope this is as far as it goes. Plenty of fluids and vitamn C.

The other thing strange to me this morning is as I sit here in a sea of cubicles(pukas), I can hear several people coughing. Not just the occasional cough but a cough here, a cough there, another one, another one and so on.

I work in the alternative health field and I found a product that works wonders for this cold going around. Umka cold care or pelargonium sidoides. Take a full dropper full every hour till the bottle is gone. Most of the people I recommend this to said 50% improvement by next day. Check it out

Sorry friend- bad pun referring to an IV feed on the echinacia. Nothing is dripping- too stuffed up from sinus to ears to chest. We have been taking it so often that we really should be getting it intravenously- would save a lot of time and forgetting to take it!!

Apologies for the confusion. Hope you feel better soon!

This seems to have been going around now for a couple of months, either that or it's just making it's way across the States slowly. Both my parents have got it and when they went to the doctor (because they coldnt shake it naturally) they were given steroid shots to beat it. My mom kept saying, how could it be that bad that they have to give you a steroid shot to get rid of it, she blamed chemtrails haha

Really? At least the doctor took this seriously.

Myself and my family caught some type of respiratory thing a few months ago. I took my childeren to the doctor, they treated them with antibiotics, and guess what they did not work. First they had penicillin that did not work so they went to amoxicillin, and still nothing. So I just let their immune system do the work. It has finally cleared up. I opted out of any medicine, just a lot of water and rest, and it worked out just fine. Whatever type of bug this is it seems the old stand by medications are'nt cutting it. My suggestion is let your body fight it, sometimes the best medicine is no medicine.

echinacea. I take these tablets when I get cold symptoms haven't had a cold for over a year now and was getting them frequently.


My husband has it, it does not respond to the usual stuff. we never ever get sick, we use Colloidal silver each time we start to feel anything coming on but it has not worked on this! My husband had tried everything, he even bought peppermint schnapps even though he doesn't drink, someone said it might work...nope!

i am so scared i will get it too, so far I am well...I am really at my wits end with this going on and on...he will say he is better then the next day right back to square one!

I just got over two sinus infections. One week, had it for about 5 days, and got over it naturally, then two weeks later, I got it all over again, worse, and by day 4 I was fed up so I got z-pack and it knocked it right out of me.


So then it is not a virus...
Azithromycin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is a macrolide-type antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria.
This medication will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.

Try this...heat some Vinegar, white or apple cider either will work, breath the steam deeply hold it in a bit make sure it is not to hot.
Works every single time for sinuous or lung things. Going to finally insist my husband do this tonight..it has always worked for me.

I was sick for about nine months. It started out as a nagging cough then it turned asthma. No fever but I kept vomiting. Nothing helped except oral steroids. They would work for about a month and then the symptoms would return. X-ray was clear so they just called it asthma.

I had asthma as a child and this wasn't asthma. I'm fine now but for a while I really thought it was possible I was going to die.

Ahh Colloidal Silver turn blue?



it will turn you blue if you guzzle tons of it, but you can take a Tablespoon swig a day and not have a problem even two a day or much more like some people do.
We only take it when we start to feels sick about two tablespoons, usually one dose if you catch it right off (get up at night and take it if you start to feel a tickle in the throat or anything) .

The colloidal silver was used as an antibiotic in the Civil war days and before, it is now being brought back to hospitals as it does the job but does not cause strengthened bugs like antibiotics and it is natural and non toxic. you can make bunches of it for almost nothing and it can kill more germs than the cleaners we use in a healthy way.

High Dose Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Zinc etc are good for boosting your immune system. Another good thing to take in the morning is toast with Natural Honey and Cinnamon powder. A tasty way to boost your immune system. I also sometimes take a small amount of Colloidal Silver. A safer natural Anti-Biotic.


AND:
"The second thing- use hydrogen peroxide in your ears. Whenever you get that tickle in your ear or if you think you feel a cold coming on, do a peroxide wash of your ear canal. "

This can't be said often enough or loud enough.

Take heed or enjoy your cold/cough/flu.

Also an old remedy that works... gargle with salt water and lemon juice have it very warm fixes sore throat in most cases.

I havent had a cold in 2 years now. And ive been around tonssss of sick kids at school.


Awesome!
I do the peroxide thing too. It works like a charm.

I also do cayenne pepper shots (just cayenne pepper in water-you can search for it) if needed. You just have to be careful since it is hot!

When I first tried this I had been sick with a nasty sore throat/chest cold (I think it was strep but I didn't go anywhere for a week-just slept). It was the worst I had ever felt. I went online to try and find some natural cures. It immediately started getting all the phelm in my chest loose afterwards and I felt better shortly after. I really do believe natural cures are the way to go and will try that before anything else.

^ That, also make sure the honey is raw and local or Manuka honey. Honey is a antibiotic. Garlic is a great antibiotic too. Crush a few cloves and mix it into whatever food you prefer.


I third this Vitamin C/Vitamin D3 recommendation. For the Vitamin C I take 2500 mg per day - but you have to spread it out. I take 1 500mg chewable tablet 5 times a day. Vitamin C will reach a certain level and then you will just pee out the excess so you have to take the smaller dose several times a day to keep your levels up. As for the Vitamin D3, the dose is 1000 IU per 25 pounds of body weight per day. This can be taken all at once. So, for example if you weigh 125 pounds you would take 5000 IU of Vitamin D3. Note that this is IU's not mg's.The liquigels are better for absorbing than tablets. In general you don't want to take vitamin tablets because there is a good chance that they will just pass through you without being absorbed. I have been taking high dose Vitamin C/Vitamin D3 for a long time and I haven't had a cold in years. I also NEVER get a flu shot.

Edited to add: When I say that you don't want to take tablets, I mean tablets as opposed to chewables or liquigels or even the liquid droppers. These will absorb in your body far better than the tablets.
