    Well, all the obscure things we do to avoid sickness at least keep us busy!! I renewed my hand washing efforts after correcting homework papers for 5th graders while eating my lunch. BAD idea!! I got so sick!! and kept thinking back to those papers for the weeks of fever etc, but who knows where the germs actually came from. It could've been my grandson too. Human interaction is so hazardous!

    Hospitals pasteurize, homogenize [ worm the blood expose it to ultraviolet ray "D vitamin"], balance the pH level in the blood. The same thing you can do by exercising, going out in the sun "d". Cutting back on acidic foods. I might add that the 7 deadly sins changes the pH in your body to acidic.

    I have great respect for the freedom for individuals to choose the treatment they think best.

    But, I am most grateful for the highly trained medical professionals with decades of scientific tests, comparison studies, peer-reviewed studies and laboratory tests and the treatments that they suggest. I will place my health in their hands.

    But, I once heard that if you threw some salt over your shoulder and drank a potion of wing of bat and eye of newt that it would do something to your health, but I forget what.

    Cold and flu season in the northern hemisphere occurs during winter. Cold and flu season in the southern hemisphere occurs during their winter (June thru September). Both correspond to less sunshine; less vitamin D produced in the skin.

    I have found that vitamin D3 supplementation (at age 66 I take 40K IU per day) along with a good multi mineral supplement to assist vitamin D adsorption and raise my blood pH significantly reduces my incidence of sickness and reduces symptoms when I do get sick.

    A person will never learn health promoting tactics such as these, especially those tailored to your body, from a medical doctor. Alternative health professions or health books must be sought.

    There is a lot to say about eating vegetables [minerals], exercising and taking vitamins.
