Well.  I'm sure I sound like a broken record when I say I'm really slammed and thus have no time to post anything but a rushed, stream-of-consciousness thaaaang, but nevertheless, that is the state of affairs here.  So:

Okay, so I rarely get sick (thank you, BTD then GTD--haven't been sick once since getting on the GTD almost a year ago...of course, it's only been a year, but anyway, thought I'd mention it), but with the seasons FINALLY changing for the crisper, over the past few days, my throat and upper-respiratory passages have been a tad bit funky, which I initially attributed to a combo of the seasonal change and my upper-respiratory challenges, as a similar constellation of wackness happens to me pretty much every season, more or less, during the first cold front or two ("cold front" being a laughably relative term in this case, but that's how sensitive my upper-respiratory sitch is, ...anyway, moving along).  So, my throat was dry and just this side of sore Sunday and yesterday, but I didn't think it necessarily meant I was getting sick.  But then I overheard a co-worker, who has been sick as a dog for days, saying that "it all started as a sore throat for a few days".  For a few hours before she said that, I had been feeling decidedly worse, like getting feverish and fuzzy and WEIRD, right?

Anyway, by evening I got into a right panic (yes, I must have been British in a previous life, but that's a topic for another post) because my one overriding thought is:  I CANNOT get sick before I get my cardiac tests on Thursday!  The main reason being that I want to be healthy, so that the tests will be accurate and provide accurate baseline data to the cadiologist re just what is or isn't going on with my heart.  The secondary concern was, day-ummm, if you cancel with short notice, the stuff they mailed me says they still charge you for the radioactive IV because it is special order and God only knows how much that costs!  I can get sick all I want AFTER THURSDAY, but I cannot get sick now!  I mean, I already got the leave approved and we're in the middle of a merger and blah blah BLAH.  BLAH!

So, I commenced ingesting Proberry caps, two at 6:00 p.m., when I finally got home and situated, and then two before bed, and then one in the middle of the night, and then two more this morning.

Now, here's the thing:  I really felt that I was coming down with something last evening.  Like I said, I was in a veritable panic over it.  But by the time I went to bed, it had kinda turned on a dime and could have gone either way, to the point I was actually hopeful that I would NOT get sick.  Then when I woke up this morning, I was pretty sure:  Thank God, I don't think I'm getting it!  Thank God, thank God, thank God!  I mean, I still am fighting it off...but I definitely appear to be winning.

IT'S THE PROBERRY!

I'm utterly sure of it.  Believe in the berry!

I'm going to take more tonight.  Then two in the morning, then that's it because I'm gonna transition into my fast for the tests (although the fast is only supposed to be four hours and the tests are mid-morning, so I COULD theoretically have elderberry manana night, too...but if I'm feeling good enough, I'm gonna try not to, as I usually don't take it and I just massively inundated my system with it, so we don't want there to be any sort of false "elderberry effect" on the test outcome  ).  ANYWAY:  that stuff is amazing.  It gets the P-Twist Award for Outstanding Performance in the Face of Co-Workers Who Insist on Coming in Sick and Spreading Their Germs.

I'll ditto that.  Stay healthy and get your test done.  
I've been fighting something ever since I got over whatever the heck it was I had a few weeks ago.  Just a little respiratory tightness, post nasal drip, whatever.  I've been doubling up on the mineral water and the proberry and throwing in some Quercitin for good measure.
Stay healthy!

Of course, we'll see how I do manana with NO KUKICHA.     

Not allowed to have any caffeine for 24 hours before the tests.

Oh, the brutality.

Hm.  I think I'll get myself some.  Maybe it'll help me pull out of this pneumonia.

Ribbit,
Are you sure it's pneumonia?  Is it bacterial or viral?  If it's bacterial, you really just might have to bite the bullet and get an antibiotic....
Hope you are feeling better soon.  It's got to be tough feeling that sick with all your little ones to take care of.
PT, hang in there.  You'll have some answers soon.  I just know you are going to be OK!

PT, all the best with your tests.  You will be OK.  And, I agree, ProBerry has got me out of trouble recently too when I started feeling a bit funny with what in the past could have developed into full blown flu symptoms.  It has also stopped my kids symptoms developing into something worse!  

Ribbit, it will be worth it a try of the Proberry.   Get well soon too.

I agree about the Proberry...It's miracle stuff...I was feeling like I was catching
my grandson's awful upper respiratory thing...I took Proberry diligently for a week....
many times during the day....and I managed to dodge a bullet.  I feel fine.

PT, thinking good thoughts for you.   Good luck with your tests~!

Ribbit, I think Proberry will help you!  Feel better.

I've never read or heard of a warning about Proberry use during pregnancy.

Proberry Liquid contains only fruit concentrates which are antioxidants.  Technically all the
ingredients are foods.

The capsules include the fruit concentrates, plus larch, bioflavonoids and rose hips

After both my pregnancies I got very sick with respiratory infections, wonder if it is an A thing?

What test are you having PT?

Dr D
Astragalus, probably no (too many unaccountable effects on interleukins). Ditto for Andorgraphis.
Looking into Licorice.

Glutathione (like the NAP Redoxa or other NAC formula) probably has a role in speeding and
optimizing recovery, after the fever has broke

Deflect would seem a very good idea (the amino sugars block viral hemmaglutinins) especially if
this virus appear to cause a lot of GI problems as well.

Proberry caps, two capsules daily max in pregnant women (whom I doubt would have much trouble
surviving a bout of this, since pregnancy is its own immunosupressor)
