I am writing to let you know that my family is getting out from a terrible form of stomach and intestinal flu. My two children, my husband (who never gets sick) and a contractor who was here working in the kitchen were hit very hard. Given my always low immune system I was getting ready for the worse, that is getting very sick myself. Since I am the mommy and the nurse it would have been an absolute disaster (I have no family here). Mommies can't rest and can't even sit no matter how sick they are. It is so awful and so hard for us! So I started getting more than a full tablespoon of vitamin C (sodium ascorbate as according to Ted directions) a day, divided in several doses. Plus zinc, colostrum, magnesium and aspirin. I was also using clove oil on my skin.Well I was cleaning up the mess of my children (remember it was a stomach flu!) and in the middle of it all I didn't get sick. I only got a bad headache for a day, but no vomiting or other as the others. My contractor lost 12 pounds with this flu. . . So God bless you all and Ted once again because you helped me being spared of all of this!
