Try some ZiCam - I prefer the 'melts' myself. We started using those a couple of winters ago and with the melts your cold just sort of goes away for about 3 hours.

This past winter we started using Eldeberry Concentrate as well. You drink about a teaspoon full in the morning (dilute it with water or grape juice) and it helps keep you from getting sick. If you think you're getting sick, or have been around sick people, bump up to a tablespoon. Lasts about 12 hours so also do an evening shot. Check the health food type stores for it. Tamiflu is an synthetic version of the anti-viral found in elderberry. We almost got the really bad cold going around this spring.

Sorry your not feeling well, but if I can suggest 1000mg of vitamin C daily, it just might act as a deterrent in the future. They come in orange flavored chewable tablets, and you just take two daily.

Hope you feel better, good luck at Blade.

Vitamin D!!!
Actually has been medically shown to decreased frequency duration and severity of viral infections. Appropriate daily dose from reliable medial sources - including US Surgeon general was increased to 800-4000 IU per day. Normal fair skinned humans in noon sun with good skin exposure for 30 minutes --> 10,000 IU. Actually tough to OD on. Only documented cases in manufacturing plants and prolonged Presrciption doses of 50,000.
Spring illness strongly related to low vit D levels. Easily available in 2000 IU caps.

By any chance did you just stop to get gas and see a beautiful girl in a black car? If so, we have a 'typhoid Mary' on our hands...:D

I have been doing the C & D for a while and it might be working. My wife has been taking it and she is the only one in the family that hasn't cuaght this crud thank God. I cant imagine coughing and sneezing fresh from the surgury she just had.
