I also totaly agree- Thanks Tari-lee!!! It was information I needed to hear and know! Tis' the season alright....for colds and flu that is. The stomach flu has gone through 4 of 5 of us in the past 2 weeks (including myself) and 3 of us have terrible colds....my husband wonders if he doesn't have srep throat. He never wants to listen to me about taking supplements until he's ill...but it's nice he'll take my advice now....We've just been taking mega doses of C and zinc... now I have even better knowdledge of what we can do around here to fight these bugs! And as far as rest- I know for certain that is why I couldnt fight off the stomach bug (so far have the cold! Yeah!)- because I wasn't getting my nomal night's sleeps. Anyways- thanks again Tari-Lee, you are so infomative and helpful and usual!!! Happy Holidays to to you & everyone!
