Tis’ the season

Working in a hospital, I get first hand contact with all kinds of yummy colds and flu’s. Its funny, I never really had issues with germs until I started working here. Now, I find myself touching doorknobs with napkins, going thru hand sanitizer by the gallon, and washing my hands endlessly. I wanted to give you all the inside scoop on something I know first hand works for the prevention of colds and/or to lesson their shelf life in your body. There are actually 2 products that I use but the main one that I start out with is Airborne. It was created by a teacher and is all-natural. If you have been exposed to someone that is sick, start using it right away. I usually take it in the morning with vitamins but if the cold has already started, you might want to take it 2 or 3 times throughout the day. Also, Zycam is what all the pediatric nurses swear by. They have different forms of Zycam, I use the nose spray. You can actually use these products together and it will give you twice the protection. It's made from Zinc so neither one makes you feel funky from the drugs. I hope this info helps. You can find them at any drugs store.

I have always wondered if that works. I am catching a cold right now.

I got some Airborne this afternoon at Wal-Mart. I got Zycam also. Do you take this one daily as well?

Thanks for the advice.

Yes, Id take them together. Thats double the protection. If you have already started the cold, with symptoms, it will lesson the cold as well. Great stuff!!

I'm a HUGE Airborne fan! People tease me, but I don't care. I KNOW my colds are of shorter duration if I down a tall glass of (pukey tasting) Airbone in time. I get nosebleeds easily from dry air -- that's the only reason why I haven't tried Zycam. Life's too short to feel crappy!

This stuff is miraculous. I've taken it twice today already. A few weeks ago, it totally knocked out something wicked. I just take it when I feel something coming on (or when I am burning the candle at both ends and fear getting sick). I used to think it was just a gimic, but I'm a believer now (I can't afford to get sick!)
