Just a note. It’s Thursday evening. I’ve been trying to fight off a cold for about 10 days… and it feels like the vacation finally pushed the advantage into the cold’s corner. I drank plenty of water; got plenty of rest.. but finding a variety of fruits and veggies when eating in diners?? Not going to happen. Even the echinacea and vitamin C I was taking hasn’t successfully fought it off.

Phooey.

I can’t take decongestants (contact, nytol, etc.)… as they give me dangerously high blood pressure. I’m dreading the next few days…

  1. Debra, talk to your doctor about trying Flonase or Nasacort for the congestion. It’s a topical steroid spray — very low dose; you could swallow the whole bottle at once and not get enough to hurt you — but it works wonders for nasal congestion from colds or allergies. It’s the only thing that got me through this last bout with the flu.

    I admit it was a bit of a trial learning to spray it up my nose while breathing. I thought I would drown! But it isn’t as bad as I thought, and it really does help.

    Another suggestion to try is something the chiro suggested last year for the kids and I. It works well, shortens the duration. Called Total Virx made by Nutri West It’s all natural too.
