I hope this is the right category for this thread...

This is my first fall/winter on BTD and I have come down with a cold that's been going around.  A lot of the cold care stuff that I used to do (echinacea, goldenseal, OJ, etc.) are avoids for Type O.  Also, I usually liked to drink soda and juice, which I think is too much sugar for O's even if it isn't the avoid kinds...

Can any Type O's who've been through a few winters of cold season let me know how you coddle your immune system BTD-style when you come down with a cold.  I would be most grateful!  

Thanks!!!

I load up on Astralgus, Type O probiotic, Proberry Capsules, Deflect and Oil of Oregano when I get the flu.

Someone told me to put a couple drops of oregano oil in a cup of hot water (as for tea) and drink every morning. I tried it for a cold and it seemed powerful. Also elderberry syrup. (KK already mentioned these.)

I would recommend making a soda with blueberry juice and elderberry concentrate in sparkling mineral water--not sweet at all, and good for you too.

Peppermint tea can be a nice change of pace when you're sick. I like it sweetened with some agave nectar--it's like drinking a peppermint drop that settles your stomach and helps open up your nasal passages too.

I have also found that making a nice beef vegetable soup works wonders. (Lamb is another great choice.) I like to use leftover pot roast and the au jus gravy. I cut the beef up in small pieces and add in bits of sweet potato, collards or kale, onion, garlic . . . the soup is gently simmered until the vegetables are cooked through (a slow cooker is excellent for making soup). This is a nourishing, easily digested and delicious soup that gets better as it ages, soothes sore throats and upset stomachs, and keeps you hydrated without having to drink a lot of water.

Yerba Santa is good for all blood types, both for sinus problems and for expectorant effect.  It will make a cough more productive, thus clearing the lungs.

NAP has a wonderful formula, called Respiratone.  I don't have time to create the link at this moment, but check at the NAP store at the top of this page.

Hi Elizabeth,

Heidi's suggestion always works for me:

"hot lemon water with a good pinch of cayenne, three times daily.
That will aid the detox, thinning the mucus so it can be flushed out."

Hope it helps you too.

Cheers,
Yaman

My cure-all for colds/ virus:

In the AM:

2 nettle (great decongestant - good for coughs) - Eclectic Institute is a great brand
2 Eclectic Institute brand garlic
2 Olive leaf, standardized
2 Astragalus, standardized
2 Elderberry caps
2 Rose Hips
1 Natural Factors Multi acidophilus with FOS
2 Mullien IF I feel like I am congested in the ears

Mid-day:

The same MINUS the Olive Leaf and the acidophilus


Before Bed:

Same as AM w.o. the acidophilus


I keep this up for 2-4 days, depending on how bad I am feeling.  After that, I stop the mid-day taking of the suppliments and I stop the Olive Leaf

After a week, I go to only taking these things in the AM.  I do this until I feel 100% and then I stop all of it.  I only take suppliments when I feel that they are needed, that way my body doesn't acclimate to them.

Homemade soup is always a good thing.  If I have a sore throat, I gargle twice a day with hydrogen peroxide - works FAR better for me than salt water.  I also have a colloidal silver throat spray that I will use if my throat hurts.

If I am congested and the pills don't clear it right up, I use a mild salt-water irrigation of the sinuses.  This rarely happens to me, so I don't have to do it very often.

Good luck!


FRESH START TODAY!!!

One of my ways of not coming down with some of the stuff I used to is stay away from wheat, corn, dairy and most other grains. Lately been cheating with chocolate, and feeling the vulnerability return to my sinuses & throat. My office is once again starting to sound like a TB ward, and it's so hard to keep myself from getting up on my chair and yelling Ditch the wheat and dairy, guys! Waiting to see if & what I may catch this season, tho I've felt tons better than I have in decades. Thanks Dr. D! Also, thanks, guys, for the cold recipes!

This seems really true!  I just went on a vacation where I wasn't eating totally compliant and I feel like I weakened my immune system.  As soon as I got home I caught the cold that was going around and felt awful.  

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.  I will definitely stock up on the suppliments for cold season.  I was a little short on cash to get all the suppliments this time, but I managed to get though with lots of fresh ginger & mint boiled into a tea with honey, brown rice miso soup with lots of sea vegetables and black cherry juice mixed with sparkling water as a substitute for my old favorite, Sprite.  Plus lots and lots of sleep.

I will maintain that my trip was fun enough to justify eating off the BTD a little bit, but I am also really thankful to be home and back to beneficial meals all the time.  Mmmmm mmm.
