No, because I can never tell when I'm bout to get sick.

No, it's usually too late by that time.

I generally feel like there's not much I can do about it by the time I feel it starting. So I just go to the store and buy plenty of Dayquil and Kleenex.

Yes. I take 4000ml of vitamin C in the morning and the same just before I go to bed for a few days. And I try and get plenty of sleep. It usually works.

Occilococcilone. We call them flu-breaker in French.
It's homeopatic.

I take some vitamin C in the morning and drink plenty of juice/water.

Sleep, a clove of garlic chopped up, swallowed likea pill twice a day with food, no toxins: coffee, sugar, alcohol, smoke... lots of fruit and water... relax... echinacea, but you have to have the tincture and it has to be good sh*t, from a herbalist you trust. Some of that stuff doesn't work. That's about it. If my kids are getting sick, i stop their dairy intake if its a snotty thing, and give them heaps of fruit and water. Keep them warm but not hot. Echinacea, they won't swallow garlic...

My mom makes me take these nasty zinc lozenges. She doesn't believe me when I say it doesn't work. I wouldn't take anything if mom didn't make me.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/24/05 - 9:39:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I suffer through it. Then I miss school.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 2:40:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I take two vitamin C tablets. I haven't had a cold in two years.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/17/05 - 8:17:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not really but I have the same bathing suit as the girl in the picture.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/17/05 - 8:19:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I know its coming and I just get ready.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/6/05 - 9:30:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, whenever I feel one coming, I just try to rest and drink lots of fluids.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/6/05 - 9:34:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I usually sleep a lot and disinfect everything in my room. Now that I think about it... it doesn't make any sense to disinfect anything since I'd already be infected. I use cough drops if I start getting a sore throat, but they usually don't help.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/6/05 - 10:00:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not really... I more or less want to get it so I have a reason to stay home.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 8/22/05 - 9:21:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
I take Echinacaea plus Contac, mega-doses of a multivitamin, and Vitamin C; if I start this regimen before the cold hits full-force, I either fight it off completely or only get a weak version of a cold every time!

Don't believe those recent reports disclaiming Echinacaea; if you take it as reccomended, BEFORE you're sick, it works great!

16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 8/22/05 - 9:42:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
I go to sleep and hope that I will feel better when I wake up.

Half gallon of pineapple juice, as fast as possible say within an hour then do the same 2 or 3 hours later. Works like a charm.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 8/25/05 - 6:21:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never been able to tell when I'm about to get ill.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 8/25/05 - 6:27:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
I massive amounts of zinc and vitamin C. Presto! No more symptoms.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 8/27/05 - 4:35:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
I usually work myself sick, so... No.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 12/29/05 - 7:12:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
I drink alot of water.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/14/06 - 5:46:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
what does the picture of that woman have anything to do with getting sick?
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/14/06 - 6:37:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
She's in a sauna, people go in them when they are sick to sweat it out and relieve chest congestion
