I work in a Natural Foods shop on Saturday's, and I have found echinacea to be really useful, but you have to take it for one week, then stop for one week. It is quite expensive for the tincture, but is very good at preventing colds.
I never get colds or any illnesses such as soar throats for a number of reasons;
1) I take echinacea, Zinc and Magnesium Tablets, and also an evening primrose oil called Eye-Q.
2) Three years ago, my sister was really really ill, she was basically mental (i know that is not nice to say but she was) she was flying off the handle, she could not behave in school, she was swearing and hitting the teachers and nobody knew why.
So, she had all sorts of tests done on her and none of them showed anything. My Mum was going mental, and she lost so much weight. She was sent to the Priory in London by the Powys health commitee, and there she was given hogh amounts of respiradone, so she was sleeping for 17 hours a day, and when she would wake up, she was eating packets and packets of smarties, and bowls of coco pops. Whilst she was doing this, she was developing severe allergies. Mum finally took her out of the Priory because she was getting worst, she used to come home once a month and sleep all the time, and my family was so upset. in a desperate plee, mum went to the library, and because nobody knew what was wrong with her, she was told that she would be like this all her life and that there was nothing we can do. Mum got so upset about this that we had to cancel our holiday, and she was really depressed. Anyway, she went to the library, and founf a book on allergies, and from this book, she contacted CLaire fretwell, and allegy specialist. So we sent of a urine sample to Claire to see what allergies she had. it turned out she had 105 severe allergies. So there was some light at the end of the tunel now we knew what was wrong with her. So, the reson she had these allergies was that she had such a poor immune system from drinking milk, that she was not able to fight off the alleriges. So, over the last three years, my mother and Claire fretwell have been working on clearing these allergies by giving her hrebal remedies, and building up her immune system, to do this, she had to recieve like 70 tablets a day of vitamins and fish oils etc, so last week after about 3 years, she only has 2 alergires remaining, she is completely normal, and her eye-q went from 52, to 135. She is now in year 10 doing fine, and its all coz of alternative medicine. Any way, back to the reason I never get colds, I have been alergy tested, and I had 30 allergies, so I had to take all these tablets, and my immune system is great now! And I aint been ill for 1.5 years!!!! there, sorry bout the essay, but i was bored.!!!
