BTD Forums  /  Nonnie Clubhouse  /  finally caught by the cold
Posted by: TJ, Tuesday, November 13, 2007, 4:20am
I would say that I caught a cold this weekend, except that I certainly wasn't chasing it!  I've been feeling it coming on for almost 2 weeks -- ever since I visited my brother, whose wife was down with a bad cold, and I was thinking on Friday, "Gee, I almost wish I'd just get sick so I can get it over with".  Ask, and ye shall receive: I woke up sick on Saturday!

The worst thing I've noticed about this cold is that I have been seriously cranky and touchy.  I've been doing decent at not being so hypersensitive lately, but failing miserably these last 3 days.  Any recommendations?

[Of course, it doesn't help that I had a job interview on Sunday in which I was interviewed for the position I applied for, only to be informed that the position had already been filled, then smugly offered a different position for half my minimum salary requirements (mad)(angry)(mad).  Sorry, venting....]

Boy how I can relate to the job situation- I have a interview tomorrow.

Colds:
Ginger tea, thymetea , elderberry sirup works wonders.
Eat as many benies as possible.

REST - sleep.

Maybe the sinus protocol :

When the cold gets the better of me I take Boiron flu remedy.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiron

Over here there was a remedy named Influgip which worked miracles for me, but I don't find it in the web. Others swear by Oscillococcinum.

I've no idea whether it's BTD compliant (last winter passed w/o any cold).

Well I still have the cold, but I think I'm already over the hump.  Used to take over a week to get there!  I expect to get over it a lot faster now on the diet than I used to, but I have also been taking schizandra and extra vit. A.  I've already been taking C.  I would have gone for some elderberry, but I didn't know the dosage, and it was pricey (I am currently STILL unemployed  :'( ).

yael, here's a link:

I can't read the language but can clearly make out Boiron and Influgip :-)

Thanks Vicki!   I've just opened Boiron's website and it does seem they have stopped manufacturing Influgip. I guess there's some stock left in Israel, therefore it still appears in some Hebrew sites. I'll better try and get some, who knows; I have some pills left at home with expiry date 07/2009. Thanks again. :)

Yes, I paid today the equivalent of $10 for 120ml of the local "Sambucol" elderberry extract.
The dosage for prophylaxis is 10ml daily, for treatment 4 x 10ml daily.
