In front of me is an opened box of Tylenol
Cold Multi-symptom Rapid Release Gels, a
box of Advil Cold & Sinus Non-Drowsy,
and an almost empty card of pseudophedrine
hcl. I pulled them out of my top kitchen
cupboard yesterday and am going to be disposing
of them shortly.
I’m starting some web pages however, and I couldn’t pass up writing
about this occasion.
These packages of cold and flu - over the
counter medicine were purchased over three
It has been three years now since I’ve
had to purchase over the counter (otc) medicines
for cold or flu. Each season, every fall,
I’ve had to go to a drug store and
do the ‘stock up’ on cold and
flu drugs. About $70.00 worth of this stuff, to prepare
for ‘the season’ . The
regular runny noses, stuffy noses, coughs, colds, flu. Sore throats, night time cold, day
time cold, 12 hr middle of the night
cough medicine, fizzy kind, powder you put
in hot water... Non drowsy for the
husband to take to work with him. Nighttime
for self and daughter.
Then, we found - I found, while looking for
other reasons, I found my way to colloidal silver. The way I found it is a really fascinating story, which I don’t
want to get in to at the moment. But after
taking the silver for awhile, I found that
we weren’t getting colds. I started
taking it for it’s arthritis and bone-health properties. And - a very surprising
and good thing that happened was the immunity from cold and flu. I hadn’t
read about that, or hadn’t paid attention to that benefit. But it happened.
Along with that, I have not gotten a cold sore in these past three year. That is the herpes virus you know, and ‘nothing’
stops a virus, does it? That’s what ‘they say’,
don’t they? But it did. It has
been wonderful not dealing with those horrible
cold sores. My family members had not had them, but I did. Two to three would pop
out on my lips with each cold season, and
stress would aggravate them, or bring them
on by itself.
