Feeling the signs of cold coming on?  Arrest it before it gets
the best of you.  Protect yourself immediately, by simply following my best suggestions:

1. Beta carotene 25,000 I.U. with a tbsp of Flax oil, or with some butter, for better absorption, as it is a fat soluble vitamin. It is anti inflammatory.
2. Vitamin C - 2,000-4,000 mg. a day. 2,000 mg. in am and 2,000 
    mg. in pm time.
3. Cod liver oil - 2 tablespoon a day. The oil provides you with
    many health benefits: reducing  cholesterol, blood thinning,
    fortifying the nervous system, reducing inflammation, aiding
    against depression, enhancing memory, and much more. It is 
    very high in vitamin A & D.
4. Vitamin B-12 (best version that is highly absorbable is: METHYLCOBALAMINE)
Take 1000-2000 mcg. a day. It is a must vitamin for strengthening immunity, for increasing energy, for depression, nervous system and much more.
5. B-Complex 1-2 capsules a day, for overall health.
6. COLOSTRUM 2-3 capsules a day.   This is absolutely a must
supplement for averting a cold and strengthening your immune system. This product is natural,  and is found in the mammary glands. 
Colostrum contains large numbers of antibodies called "secretory immunoglobulin" (IgA) that help protect the mucous membranes in the throat, lungs, and intestines of the infant.
When feeling worn down, I recommend to always take
Colostrum, at least for the first 2-3 days of an onset of a cold.
Additionally, a good idea is to also take Tylenol 500 mg.  1 tablet, 2x a day, for one to two days, as it has arresting effect on colds, due to its anti inflammatory effect.

*Stay away from junk food.
*Reduce sugar intake! If taken excessively, you will experience: 1) Frequent blood sugar fluctuations, 2) Microbial overgrowth, resulting in higher level of body inflammation. 3) Slower healing. 4) Restlessness.
*refrain from consuming red meat, as it places a burden
on the immune system, due to longer digestion time.
*Eat fish, or chicken, as these provide more health benefits,
and are anti-inflammatory. They help you heal more quickly.
*To rid of phlegm, take Turmeric powder. It will clear your lungs, fairly quickly. Take 1 tbsp in 1 cup boiled water,
stir well, cool down, and drink 1/3- 3x a day, until you feel better! Drink it before or after food intake. It Works!
*Drink chicken soup, the real one! Commercial packages won't provide you with the same benefits.
If you don't have chicken soup, eat chicken meat in any
form you like, preferably not fried. It can be in a wrap, a sandwich, or on its own.
*keep your extremities (head & feet) warm, as they are more
sensitive to temperature changes.

Wishing you a quick recovery,
