I've been dealing with a chronic illness for over two weeks now. Flu that turned into nasal congestion, post nasal drip and bronchitis cough.

Today was the first morning that I did NOT wake up coughing, so I know I'm getting better.

My recovery is going better than last time, where it took me three months to get over it.

Here are my supplement regemins

Empty stomach 2x a day
1500 mg Bromelain
2 Deflect
2 ARA Plus
2 Polyflora
2 Gastro-D Complex

With meals 2x a day
2 Astraglus (sp)
2 Proberry
1 Redoxa
1-2 Stinging Nettle leaves

Peppermint Oil on my chest 2x a day.

I'm out of Intrinsa, but I will be ordering it soon to go with the Gastro-D.

I also wonder about your vitamin D levels.  Do you take D3?  A year ago I suffered cold after cold, getting sick every other week for 4 months & the final cold lasted 5 weeks +.  Once I got my vitamin D levels up, I would only get mild colds, once or twice a year.  As soon as I backed off considerably on the D3, I got sick again.  I take 2300 IUs/ day & it works for me.  I know others take much more than that, but that works well for me.  Wishing you health again soon.


Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again!
Goal weight acheived!!  Woo Hoo!!!!

For myself, I have not gotten sick for about, almost 2 years.  I do get out in the sun and get sun; my husband always wants me to wear a hat, but a hat is uncomfortable for me.  I know this last bout was from an avoid binge... Hopefully I've learned my lesson this time.

Okay, i always wondered this. What is a "clove" of garlic, it is not the whole bulb but one of those little toes that you can pull off the bulb? Right?

Yes, a clove is the little "toe" that you pull off the big bulb. The bulb consists of about a dozen cloves of varying sizes, the bigger ones near the outside and smaller ones in the middle. You may only need half a clove from the outer layer and then eat 2 or 3 of the smaller ones together when you get to the inside of the bulb.

Quoted from Victoria
Put a heaping Tb of powdered ginger in a big dishpan;  fill 2/3 full with hot tap water.  Soak your feet until they are pink and the water begins to cool.  Vigorously towel-dry your feet and put on warm socks or climb in bed.


I love this idea Victoria, as soon as I read your post I tried this, and it was super relaxing, hopefully detoxing also.

KimonoKat - sounds like you are finally winning - it drags you down doesn't it. I have been sleeping propped up so I don't feel like I am suffocating under the congestion, so uncomfortable.

Some other things -
Taking chlorella daily.
Started on the sambucol elderberry, even though it is probably too late, I have never tried it before. My only concern with this would be if it tried to slow down the mucus removal - as this is how the body rids itself of the germs by building a mucus shield around them and getting them out of the body as quickly as possible. I am not sure what a ramped up immune response would actually be...
Drinking fresh ginger, lemon & thyme tea - 1 x pot, 3 x daily.
Eating parsnip, thyme and turkey soup for breakfast & lunch (packed with garlic, tarragon, sweet potato and lemon too)
Taking polyfora between meals.

I've been sleeping sitting up too honeybee! For over a week I was propped up on the end of the sofa.  I had to sleep there because I kept waking up Mr. KK with my coughing, so HE wasn't getting any sleep!

honeybee, look at the health protocols for sinus support, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory for your type.  That's what I drew my supplement list from.

Sharing with the best of intentions.
