Be well, friend! Have made the dive head and hindmost into Occupy Philly–this is a transformative movement–creative social reconfigurations–hope some you philosphs are keeping tabs–fascinating things are happening!
try dissolving a teaspoon at a time of sugar in your mouth. Don’t swallow it – spit it out after it has dissolved. Then another teaspoon – do this for 2hrs. Your cold will be gonemuch quicker (I learnt this recently) – unless you want it. I almost blew myself up a wk ago. Poured petrol on a bonfire thinking it was diesel and crouched down and lit it – most stupid thing I have ever done….life is short and sweet – get well.
I have no other sources. I guess a lot of these sites mix v. useful alternatives with stuff that is ‘wacko’. I’m pretty open minded about trying alternatives to big pharma.
For example, only a month ago, a study in nz by a mainstream ‘scientific’ group found that taking paracetamol actually increased the time it took to recover from a cold/flu. The fever is ‘good’ for you……
No I haven’t tried it (but I am going to test it as a prevention). I wanted Levi to be the guinea pig – he keeps getting these horrific colds…(smile). I think the article makes a lot of sense – but I can see what you mean….
Thanks Paul, you may be right.. I’m not competent to judge the sciencey claims made, so whether or not they ‘make sense’ to me isn’t much of an indicator of their plausibility! But I tried it yesterday just in case (I’m crook myself), and I couldn’t say that it noticeably helped… which of course is neither here not there but there you go
