I woke up with a cold today, sore throat, headache, stuffed up/running nose. I'm going to take increased doses of Vita C today, but someone told me to take Zinc. Not sure if that is something we're supposed to take? Any thought? I'm trying to get well FAST as I have a trip coming up.
Thanks for your help!

Speaking of colds/flu - I just got my flu shot, here's hoping it wards off the nasties this year.
Good luck with the zinc and have a great trip!

I bought lozenges today that directs you to dissolve one in your mouth ever 2 hours until your symptoms stop. I hope this works. The article was very interesting, thank you Jeannie. I've been so busy with other things that I didn't even THINK about the flu vaccine yet. Thanks for the reminder!
