I may have mentioned this in another part of the now massive Earth Clinic :-). Yyeeaayy! I love this website, and I am very impressed with and grateful for the founder of it! I endured colds and flus my entire life as many as three or four a year. It took me as much as four weeks to recover sometimes and one time I developed bronchitis. This may be why I discovered earth clinic. I did start receiving alternative newsletters, and one of them had a piece on medicinal mushrooms for immunity. I tried them and they helped my immunity as long as I remembered to take them daily. Then, a few years later I discovered a nutrient called Epicor. It is now showing up in several immunity formulas offered by companies that are big names in the supplement business and for good reason. Epicor is simply fermented yeast, but, boy, does it work! And, remembering to take one daily helps a lot, too! I can happily report that I have not had a cold or flu in three, maybe four years. I have had two incidents in which I felt like maybe I was getting something so I started taking Epicor every few hours and never got sick. I felt normal in one day the first time and two days the second time. The company that makes Epicor explains that it is Saccharomyces cerevisiae which is the strain of yeast used for making bread, wine and for brewing. And, I'm sure many of you who are into alternative healing know that our immune systems are based in our intestines and that fermented foods boost immunity. So, I am adding other fermented foods to my diet and feel that if I am exposed to the dreaded Coronavirus I will either not get sick or I will have a much milder version of what I might have endured. My son and his girlfriend take medicinal mushrooms and stay well, too, but at this time they have added the fermented yeast. I did send this information to CNN along with a link to a government study of Epicor. I also sent it to Sanjay Gupta directly as well as Chris Cuomo who has the virus, but I have not heard a word on that channel about any form of alternative healing. Hmm, I wonder why?
I just thought of something! My mother loved sauerkraut and dill pickles and pickled beets, etc., and I remember her saying, "I never get colds".
