There is a near-cure/preventive for the common cold.......
zinc. Take the tablets, chews, whatever. Clinical studies have shown that it prevents colds, and also cuts down their duration. I keep telling my friends this (because I'm a medical journalist, and I take it and it works), but the never listen to me. Maybe you will ;)

like daily?
i HAVE heard the benefits of zinc, and now i'm convinced..

You can get zinc pastels (you suck them) at the drugstore; take them as directed on the package. There's no need to take them every day, but say, when it's cold season, or when you think you're about to get a cold.

Get well soon!

thanks...i'll look for 'em, pronto!

oh yes .those actually work!and they come in yummy citrus flavours too!
i have tried zinc lozenges at the beginning of a cold..right at the first tickle in the throat it worked.the cold fled!
even taken in the middle of a cold they shorten the duration.i also hear they help you heal faster if you have a cut or anything.
and garlic! a steady diet of garlic is good for everything!

garlicky goodness

brain work is important!

..and..in my opinion..
...none of your collages are "just another collage".

making art things...yup. that's MY medicine..
Oct. 15th, 2005 01:52 pm (UTC)
i take something called "airborne" (take it like alka seltzer)
it has zinc, eccinacia (sp?), and lots of other vitamins and minerals in it...
works wonders!!!!! i give it to the kids too... cuts the cold off right away (i had a cold a few weeks ago. it was gonna be a nasty one. only lasted 3 or 4 days. woke up one day and it was gone. i felt fine.) ... it's fabulous...
look for it at the drug store... trader joes carries it too (you have one near you?)
if you can't find any, let me know, i'll mail you some
Oct. 15th, 2005 04:55 pm (UTC)
i will definitely look for it...yup, i was JUST in TJ's yesterday, wouldn't ya know..
thanks for the advice..you're SUCH a great mama..sniff.

and it's tasty, too! ( it's begging for a shot of vodka, though)
