I havent been sick an almost 2 years and Im not really sure why. I had food poisoning a couple times, which resulted in a couple of hours of upset
stomach and throwing up, but no colds or flu. Years ago I would get them all the time, and the thing is I considered myself more healthy than I do now
in the sense that I didnt eat as much junk food and would run outside 4-5 times a week so I was in better physical shape.
As to why i havent gotten sick? I really am not sure but Im not complaining. I do take an organic vitamin called Pure Synergy, made for men but they
have a womens version too. It has all the normal stuff youd expect, all natural and not synthesize, plus a bunch of different roots and herbs that I
dont really know alot about. I take one everyday, sometimes two if I lift alot of weights that day and feel like I want a little extra just in case.
As for medicine, I havent taken cough syrup or the like in years as well, even a couple years back when I did get the cold a few times a years. I have
a sensitive stomach when it comes to some things, and medication is one of them, so I usually wouldnt bother taking it. Ive since then read that
certain medicines can help slow down your recovery from sickness, but lessen the symptoms of course to make it more bearable. Im not saying I wouldnt
take cough syrup again if need be, but I havent had it in years and surprisingly I havent had any problems.
Anyways, I just wanted to share my personal story because, like I said, I used to get sick alot more often but really over the past 2 years or so Ive
had nothing. So i can either attribute that to being very luck or taking the natural vitamins everyday. I also drink alot of water and used to get a
good amount of sunlight on a weekly basis, but the past month or so has been much harder as the sun has changed positions making it much harder for
it to reach into our yard, surround by trees.
Feel better! Ginger tea has also helped me relieve symptoms in the past (fresh, cut up myself) but not on an empty stomach thats for sure.
