I had the flu once this year. It happened about three days after I ran out of D3. When my order finally arrived I was too sick to keep the capsules down. I haven’t allowed myself to run out again. I think this is also a great time to increase my family’s probiotic intake.

My son is now 2 1/2. We’ve been giving him probiotics since he was an infant. You can’t get enough of them, so they are not at all harmful. We poured the capsules into his bottle, and I took extra as well (I expressed milk and bottle fed). It does make a difference with the immune system.

Try a netti pot. I haven’t had sinus problems since I started using one. When I feel something coming on I add a cap of hydrogen peroxide to the warm water. It stings so bad my eyes water, but I haven’t taken an OTC or prescription sinus med in almost three years.

On my second round of antibiotics

I'm sure you are. Tell you what, disregard the antibiotics, get yerself some good cough syrup and check back in about three or four weeks and tell us how good you're feeling........Then send me about $50 bucks for saving you any other worthless doctors's visits and prescription charges.........

IT'S A VIRUS and despite how strong the strain is, it will not respond to any known antibiotic......

Your body will eventully overcome it if you would just let it do its job............

Thought strictly anecdotal, I started taking a vitamin D3 about a 18 months ago, I have not been sick even once, not even a sniffle.

Though strickly anecdotal, I am at 16 months and counting.

Though strictly on purpose and non-anecdotally, 18 months and counting.

I’ll tell you what. When you can do a blood work-up for infection I’v been diagnosed with, via your mighty keyboard, I may listen to you.

In the meantime I’ll continue to be seen by the Doctor here who is the local contact for the CDC. (Which is why I was refered to him)

If you need fifty bucks, hustle snake oil (somewhere else)

Yeah, but unlike time and tide, it waits for any man.

Interesting. Some in my family who rarely get sick really got nailed something like this. I didn't get it which is very surprising since I'm usually so susceptible to stuff like this. Can only attribute it to two things - avoiding my family and most everyone else like the plague while this was going around, and having to take Calcitriol daily. Calcitriol is active vitamin D. My body can't convert any vitamin D I take in into its useful form so this prescription is a must. Must be doing my immune system good, too.

I wonder, just wonder....hmmmm....what would this map look like overlaid with a map, say, of the states most infested by illegal Hispanics.

Here's a map describing the overlay. I think AZTLAN is Spanish for "Quarantine and Sterilize".

I see it.... a less complete version of the posted illustration. I’m guessing the year completed between the two are different and the earlier one is more up to date.

Thanks for saying what I am thinking - most people who go to a nursing home for long-term care die in the nursing home. The filthiness of health care workers’ hands, particularly doctors, is the main cause of the spread of disease in health care facilities. Experiments have been run in day care centers and schools where special attention is paid to cleanliness of hands, and ditching the fluorescent lighting for full spectrum “healthy” light bulbs, and VOILA, disease and pestilence decreased. Wow!
