Well I think I have a cold, atleast thats all I am hoping it is. I've noticed this illness for 5 days now, my nose is not runny, and my cough is pathetic but i can feel there is mucus movin around when i cough. Also my nose is blocked sometimes by congestion. Any suggestions as to what it is I actually have?What are some ways to fight it so I can get well?

My treatment so far as hbeen:
getting 8 hours of sleep a night, and I am taking several vitamin C capsules a day, also OJ.

I'd recommend vitamin C yeah. Also some kind of mentholly stuff, to sniff. I have olbas oil, which I put on my clothes, or on tissue, and it helps to clear your nose. Maybe hot drinks as well, they might help your throat.

Brian, sorry you feel like shit. :(

Richard is right. I went to a naturopathic doctor last tiem I felt the way you currently do (traditional doctors are mostly idiots). Her advice for me to take increase vitamin C intake BIG TIME - more specifically, two vitamin C tablets every 3 hours so your constantly bombarding your blood with vitamin C, AND also eat as many raw garlic cloves as you can. SO I chopped up an entire HEAD of garlic once, poured olive oil on it to make the slippery, and with every spoonful of the chopped garlic I gulped it down with some oj. until all the garlic was gine. The next day, I did the same thing with garlic, consuming two heads of garlic and an overload of vit C in 48 hours and whatever was ailing me was gone.

Garlic is a natural antibiotic and blood cleaner (bad stuff in your body doesnt stand a chance with garlic in the bloodstream, and vit C of course give your immune system the extra power punch it needs to give what is ailing you.

hope you feel better soon. :(

Don’t take anything that will dry your sinuses out. If you do all that bacteria or viral crap will stay in your face and cause a sinus infection. Eat some spicy food to help flush it out.
