And do you moan endlessly about what you had to go through, STEMO? No, of course you don't; you are a man, so you simply shrug your shoulders and get on with things.  :y :y :y

Result: Ignored it as much as possible, eat plenty of sasumas for the vitamin C where I had two 2.4kg boxes of them, got on with work where I've got lots to do and now the heavy cold has largely gone away. :y :y :y

Now need to try and avoid for the next 6 weeks the two main flu bugs doing the rounds. ???

Vitamin C has no effect after you have flu/a cold - it must be taked regularly before you get ill.
If you are ill, I find the best cure is to really sweat it out; go to bed after taking paracetamol or whatever, wrap up really warm, PJs, double the bedding and an extra duvet and no matter how hot and sweaty you feel, stay in bed for at least 24 hours.

With reference to the home cooking thread and now this one: I eat mostly shit, fruit, vegetables and salad donít appeal to me at all. I donít get colds. I am not fat. And I donít give a toss how much my crap food costs.

So eff off.  ;D

If you ate good home cooked food with a healthy balanced diet, you probably still wouldn't get sick or fat, but you might have a more pleasant disposition!  :)

Actually, I wasnít quite honest there. I love bowls of stew and the like with vegetables in, I just donít like the modern stuff they serve up these days, i.e. raw and warm.

It took 7weeks until mine started to improve. The multi coloured phlegm was best described as 'chewy'.
It could have been worse though; I've a friend who was coughing so hard she managed to crack a rib.

Not according to the US government public health website. Research shows that taking vitamin C after you have got a cold doesn't reduce the severity of the cold but does marginally reduce its duration, where vitamin C is used by your immune system. Presumably in the production of white T-cells?

They are not exactly new findings, Rods2 and the "after-the-event" therapy has to be a large dose, at least 1000mg, of Vitamin C, to be efficacious. I'm happy with my previous comment, because a steady build-up over time wards off the common cold - inasmuch as anything will.
I have found the most effective preventative has been retirement - no need for "sickies", so no colds!  ;D 8) :y

I've always found sucking a couple of zinc tablets works well on the slightest sign of a sore throat, where it is medically proven they stop the virus in your throat breeding, so you immune system can finish off a small amount that are there. :y If your throat is already sore, then it is too late where there are too many of them. :(

Zinc tablets? That's worth remembering. Useful during pregnancy too, I hear, not that that concerns me too much..... ;D
