I used to be one of those people that hardly ever got sick. Then I ended up with candida and would catch everything under the sun. If someone just mentioned a cold or the word flu, I would get it, even though I made sure I got a flu shot yearly.
Candida wreaks havoc on our immune systems. It made my body so weak that I couldn't fight back. I needed to do anything I could to make my immune system stronger.
I always wash my hands often..... but I know for a fact that hand washing only goes so far. I was a fanatic about washing my hands and I still ended up with parasites so that is why I don't think hand washing is all I need to do to protect me from a cold or flu.
One thing I did was start taking Immunophen. I have been taking it for over a month now and "knock on wood" I haven't been sick yet.
Over a week ago, My Hubs ended up with that awful cold that is going around. I thought for sure I would be sick with it next. Whew!!! It passed me by. So happy about that.... I don't want to have to take any antibiotics like so many are doing. It seems no matter where I go, someone around me is SICK!! I Don't Want It !! I think it is the Immunophen is helping with my immune system. I AM KNOCKING REALLY HARD ON WOOD!!
I also have a list of Vitamins and Minerals I take daily. Liquid Magnesium Chloride, Potassium, Folic Acid, Zinc, Vitamin C, B Complex, Calcium, D3. There might be more but I think that is about it.
So do any of you do anything special to fight Colds And Flu?
