Getting sick, advise?

  1. Getting sick, advise?


    I am coming down with the cold/flu/strep/something. I am one of those individuals who hardly gets sick but when I do, it hits me pretty good. My throat is itcy, light fever, I feel weak. Any suggestions on how to fight this? I am alergic to acetaminophin. I am taking Alka-Seltzer (tablets), its about one of the only thing I can consume that doesnt have acetaminophen. Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Manny


  2. Zicam nose swabs man, best invention ever.

  3. Give this a gander:

    Trauma1's common cold facts/treatments/studies.

    The zicam nasal swabs are probably one of the few things i'd recommend. It's designed to attenuate the virus (inhibiting viral replication) right at the nasal mucosa site of origin. It should help to decrease the overall duration of the actual URI (upper respiratory infection.)

    best way to prevent the common cold

    Always avoid iron, magnesium and calcium too as much as possible. That's why your pharmacist puts that no dairy/tums sticker on the side of anti-biotics Rx's, pathogens need those minerals to grow and maintain cell wall integrity. Lots of guys double up on the multi when they get sick, in reality you should drop it for a few days until you start feeling better. Know what I mean? Olive leaf extract too bro, and add an anti-cort like DHEA or one of it's derivatives. Took LFX this winter and didn't even get a stomach flu, amazing benefit from anti-cort.

  6. I'm not too sure how long the rhino (cold) virus can survive on objects but I'd recommend washing hands and spraying lysol on keyboard, mouse, steering wheel, door knobs ect... Change pillow case + sheets. Avoid rubbing eyes or putting hands to your face.
    All the other remidies will help You recover, I'm suggesting some prevention techniques to use when your ill so you don't keep getting infected over & over (I'm not a germ-a- phobe)

  7. Lots of Vitamin C. Sounds pretty cliché, but I will down 3 g when I start feeling a cold come upon me and it knocks is completely out. Saturday night I was coming down with a sore throat and took 3g of crystallized V C before bed. Next morning I took another 3g and by that afternoon I was feeling normal.

    I use Vit.C more as a prevention than a cure.

    1 gram twice a day, everyday and 1 more gram post workout if it's a training day. Haven't been sick since doing this and i've been around plenty of sick people.

    When i have been sick in the past i always went off whatever diet i was on and tended to eat more junk food. Sugary junk food. Always made me feel better.

    Yeah, I consume 2-3 g intra workout to help with cortisol reduction. I agree, it is very good for preventing a cold. I rarely get sick.

    Now that I added Poseidon to my list of staples, I'm getting an extra 3g/day from that, and 1.5g IntraWO.

  11. oddly enough i take garlic pills, its an antioxident... since i started quadruple dosing those and overdosing fish oil at night i have been feeling a hell of alot better and i think i have bronchitis
