Feel cold coming on – preventative measures
Try some of DrP’s magic white powder – If you paypal (why “gift“, of course) £60, I’ll make sure my uniquorns (vegetarian friendly) fly by and sprinkle some over your house….
(Little evidence on this subject – you COULD try high dose vit C, but TBH you’ll end up pi$$ing most of it down the loo, and it’s unlikely to change what’s going to be inevitable…)Posted 5 years agoBlobOnAStickSubscriber
Sore throat? I find this very helpful (I know, I know it looks daft, but it really works for me): http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/1705 EDIT: Actually, it’s step 3 I do, rather than the whole thing. But doing the whole thing makes it more effective IME
Otherwise just feeling a little sluggish, I go out for a blast on my bike/run. It always seems to blow the impending germs away.
I also used to find a sauna quite helpful.
No scientific explanation for any of them working as far as I know.Posted 5 years agoCougarSubscriber
Anecdotally, I tried the First Defence stuff the last time I started with a cold. Normally with colds I spend three of four days coming down with it, three or four feeling like death warmed up, and three or four with it leaving again. Using the spray, I had the former and the latter but seemed to skip the bit in the middle.
Obviously, this is a sample of one so it could just be a total coincidence. But it seemed to help.Posted 5 years ago
Yes, Vicks First Defence definitely works. At the same time, get some Corsodyl mouthwash and gargle with it three times a day. Don’t waste your money on vitamin C tabs, that’s a fallacy.
Using these I was able to fight off a sore throat and the ensuing cold at the begining of a two-week trip to East Africa; I got them from the bloke sitting next to me on the flight out who sneezed all over me and waved his handkerchief in my face then very kindly reached my laptop bag down from the locker, thus covering the handles with his virus.Posted 5 years ago
