It's early (0530)...way to early to be awake when you needn't be! Ya know how the night before your happily thinking, OH YEA...I'm sleeping in tomorrow...la, la, la...,not getting up until late tomorrow..la, la, la and you glance at your bedside alarm clock as if your worst enemy exclaiming, "and YOU can't do a DAMN thing about it!!" (come on, I'm not the only one who talks to their alarm clock.. or am I?lol). But lo and behold, your internal alarm clock gets the best of you and your up at the crack of dawn. I swear our bedside and internal alarm clock are in cahoots with one another, performing a clandestine operation to reek havoc on our "morning sleepins". Yup, can truly turn a happily anticipated event into the morning grumps...

But if you'd be so kind as to allow me to complain about something else...:))

I'm up early for a different reason today! It brings a whole new meaning to the condition sleep apnea and near death experiences...Ya know how ya can't breath out of your nose when you've got a cold? You've got that cough, you toss and turn....Well I think I've got some mutated form of the flu and common cold...low grade fever, stuffy nose alternating with runny nose, cough, headache, body ache, chest ache, everything ache....ya got the picture? We've all been there. But I have a particular strain designed especially for me, the perfect deadly combo. Now I'm not totally incapacitated by the flu...can still get up and move around in the zombie shuffle gait mode and perform minor tasks like logging on , turning on the tube, opening a can of chicken soup. Yup just enough energy that doesn't leave you bedridden so that you can perform minor tasks, and just enough so ya remain cognizant of how crappy you really feel.

But I'm stylin..flannel jammies, purple booties, braided hair...But I'm not going the kleenex stuffed in the nostril route...No way, I've got too much style for that!! Who needs the Issey Miyake eau de parfum (my current favorite) when you got vicks vapor rub? Forget the breath mints too, if you really wnat to kill the dragon the advanced vapor action honey lemon mentho-lyptus Halls does the job!! Gotta look at the postive here...One of the advantages of being alone at a time like this...You don't have to listen to your loved one saying" Honey, I love ya, really I do, but I'm sleeping on the couch, and "call me when this passes". So if any of you lovely ladies really get into the dumps on being alone on valentines day...a good dose of the common cold will cure your desire for intimacy...:))

Now I'm not big into conventional treatment for all that ails ya and the common cold and flu are viruses. Although many people still want to take anitibiotics for it..won't do a thing. But do have Zicam which is "clinically proven to shorten the duration of the cold", and I do believe in chicken soup and vicks vapor rub. I've also rented the dvd, the aristocrats, for a hearty dose of laughter. I really am lucky, as I haven't had the flu/cold in years. I am intolerant of it when it arrives though..so am open to any natural remedies. Yesterday I bought the Vicks vapor rub to put on my chest...and then I read the directions( which I rarely do for anything) and it said it can be used for muscle aches...I thought Eureka!! Well needless to say with just about everything aching...Yup even on the bottom of my feet...now let me explain here before ya think me nuts(i've already admitted to being a little offbeat, but lovable ;))Sometimes I listen to the sage advice of the elderly and one such womean told me she always put it on the bottom of her feet and it worked every time...Of course ya could slip on the bathroom floor and break your neck...maybe that's what she was thinking...I guess that would just about take care of everything. But seriously if you should come across my obituary in a few days...it's probably due to a vicks vapor rub toxicity and overdose...

Well I'd like to hear how you survive the flu/cold. What you do, what you take, how you pamper yourself. Please hurry with any forthcoming advice as I don't know how long I have before the vicks vapor rub toxicity sets in ...LOL

One of the biggest reasons is, and think about this, it is a dominoe effect. If they(FDA)found that these supplements Cured, caused remissions, think of the research companies, med labs,pharmaceutical comp. that would be out of business all over the world. It would cause a disaster literally so they continue to bad mouth them. Call them fraudulent, say there is no sure test, dissuade the public with scares because of the fear they have. The only sure way to know any of this is when you have a condition use what you feel appropriate without conventional medicine and see what happens. I went to my health convention in Nashville several yrs ago and the testimonies on Lesions, Cancer were phenomenol. These were people who has test at there Drs. both before and after and used on supplements. They can not be denied no matter what the Drs. and pharmaceutical companies say.....


statuesque4u,

As for C S it has been strongly been denied by the Medical Profession though the proof of its ability to kill disease is phenomenal as many research proves it.

I used to raise poultry as a hobby and 4 H Club ...I have never used any antibiotic injection in my birds as it was not the way I saw nature work..we only used good sanitary and never had no problems with our poultry.

I also used collided silver on some sick little chick when they have just hatched and are a few days old...some I lost but the majority recovered...I put it also in there water to kills germ etc..worked like a charm for me as I hatched some 700 little chicks per batch at a time when I did the hatching twice a month..

I am aware at what you are saying about the Medical Industry..I knew a Vet and we had good chats about animals and health; I told the Vet don't you think it is a bit stupid how our medical profession give you pill and pill and you give the highest vitamin and mineral milligram amount to the animal in there feed so they will grow with minimum diesease and be have dynamic growth while the medical profession says nothing about nutrition for human being and how optinum and vital are these vitamins and minerals for our development. He just said bluntly it is a money racket..ask any Vet about diet for your pet and he will offer you a feed bag with the highest energy boosting,brain development for your dog or cat.

Why not us? It is just to say how delusional our medical profession is today.

statuesque4u,

Bravo you are in the Alternative Healing Field also.

Yes, I am aware about the medical industry and the inner working etc...as being an investor, I know how the Medical Association and the Dr.'s are invested in Pharmaceutical,research lab and host of others...here in Canada they have a public company called MDS Health and it is only for health professional who are permited to invest in it with a minimum $100 K and they are in all kind of medical industries. As you know these Dr's will look for there own interest first just like any corporation..the shareholders are the one who are rewarded and we pay the bills. ha!

I know they hide information on purpose and you are right there is phenomenal testimonies around how vitamins,cleansing kits, balancing nutrition,fasting and many others are clearing people of diseases the medical profession refuses to endorse or admit..it will have to change because the more people are knowing this, the more demand they will make...it is becoming clear by the tide of information flowing on Natural Health lately.

There are some good in the medical industry but it has become a real money racket as the last 30 years..a pill for this and that ...years back it wasn't so much like it. People eated better than now.

Did you know in China they have a clinic for cancer patient and the only thing they do in that clinic is eat a balanced diet and do some form of martial art exercise and they have a healing rate of I think it is around 96 or 98 %. I was totally blasted when I read this document, I had a hard time to believe what I was reading but it is just to say how other countries like China,India and some other Asian countries who are very much more into Natural Health Healing are way advanced than ours with there healing methods etc..

C S is very good for many things, the only thing we can do is keep on learning and passing the knowledge to other people so they can be able to take responsibility for there health just like in the old days.

BQ

Hi BeautynBrains,

You want to kill your flu fast get collided silver at your health food store and Olive leaf extract for any fever and it will help to rout out the virus, there is also Elder Berry they call which is very good..they even found out through research recently that collided silver also kills the aid virus. Silver kills some 562 type of pathoegen and viruses..nothing is so potent as it.

In the old days when I was young they put silver dollars in the milk bin to preserve the milk longer.

According to Dr. Jenson there was some surgeons who put silver coins in the wound to make it heal faster as the silver was so potent in killing infectious germs it healed better...go figure why we have lost this art of healing.

Olive Leaf extract have a compound in it the virus can't duplicate it goes like " this is just an example to give you an idea about its compound..the virus has ujr8475 code and the Olive leaf extract has iurl89379mfopppp compound code and the virus usually copies the regular system cell codes of your body and the reason they thrieves until your White Blood cells move in for a fight then your white blood cells have to do there job but sometime are compromised depending how the virus is able to assimilate cell codes...the Olive leaf extract has such a longer code the virus is unable to copy it, once your cells assimilate the Olive leaf compounds the virus becomes compromised and your T-Cell can now work to destroy it...they did research on this and were outstounded on the results.

Just some pointers on your next flu..

Hope you are feeling better soon.

BQ

Beauty well i am sorry to see you are very under the weather. They have so much out now and i am a poor specimen to use. My daughter had chronic tonsillitis about 4 times a yrs with all those symptoms. She lived on nyquil. I pushed that one because as old as it is it is still one of the best ones out there. You know that alcohol on there will just knock you out into a really deep sleep. I used it when i was in college with a chest cold in 72 and that's the last time i have ever been sick. But no matter what you choose, doctor the symtoms as your body will get rid of it in it's own time. Vicks vapor rub is great. Strong smell, taste horrible but does open the nose.....LOL. Now keep wiping that post nasal drip...LOL. But use the soft kleenix or put vasoline on your nose or it will be gone along with your cold....Hope you are feeling MUCH better by time you read this.......

As for the Vicks, many years ago when I was very young, I got a very bad cold. All I did was cough my head off all the time, so my grandmother, in her infinite wisdom, made me SWALLOW a glob of Vicks. I guess she figured if it was good for ya on the outside, it should do wonders on the inside. Tasted terrible and the consistency was enough to gag a maggot!!
Needless to say....IT DIDN'T WORK!! To top that off, I contracted whooping cough. My life for about a week was cough, throw up, cough, throw up. It just wasn't pretty!!!


TallBlonde,

That was too funny, I can't imagine what a glob of vicks tastes like never mind the consistency! Yuck!!!

But it is good stuff when used properly on the outside lol.

Sorry to hear you're sick BnB, hope you have a speedy recovery. In the meantime, pamper yourself with lovely hot bubblebaths & whatever else makes you feel good.

OMG BnB, that was hilarious!! Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I get a flu shot every year and have for the past 20 years, simply because I am a nurse, and really don't want to get what everyone else has! I did, however, contract pneumonia and pluersy a few years ago. Felt like I had been run over by and truck, then the bastard backed up and hit me again. The doc gave me antibiotics, inhalers, pain meds, and I told me not to move from my bed for 7 days. I DIDN'T!! I never felt more like dying than I did during that week. As for the Vicks, many years ago when I was very young, I got a very bad cold. All I did was cough my head off all the time, so my grandmother, in her infinite wisdom, made me SWALLOW a glob of Vicks. I guess she figured if it was good for ya on the outside, it should do wonders on the inside. Tasted terrible and the consistency was enough to gag a maggot!!
Needless to say....IT DIDN'T WORK!! To top that off, I contracted whooping cough. My life for about a week was cough, throw up, cough, throw up. It just wasn't pretty!!!
Anyway...I digress. Normally when I get a cold, which I did last month, I headed straight for the store and picked up some Zicam. By golly, that stuff did the trick. I was really surprised. My cold lasted for about 3 days, and that was without taking any cold remedies. I did, however, have the cough for about another week. Hang in there, wear your slippers, so you don't slip on the bathroom floor, stay warm, drink plenty of fluids, take some Tylenol Flu if you've got some, and get well soon!!!
