I am registered as disabled, so I got a free flu shot!

Have you ever tried Acupuncture for your arthritis?

It is well worth trying it.

I had a serious infection 4 years ago and I had a terrible skin reaction. Bright red everywhere I looked like a burn victim.

I can’t say I’ve noticed the relation between a cold and my skin. Get better quickly John! I highly recommend oregano oil (5 drops in water once a day maximum 10 days).

Hi John, When getting a cold my P is fine, I haven't had flu in a very long time but I remember when I had bronchitis 4 years ago my P just flared up. It was a disaster. My scalp flared up and I knew, my legs are going to get worse. And it did.
Get well soon, we know how men are when they have man flu lol ;) (just kidding)

Justin, how is the flu shot working for you? Doesn't it trigger a flare ? I don't get joint pain anymore (thank goodness) but acupuncture is good for a lot of things. Keep it up!

HAHAHA Michelle, i joke about man flu as men dont usually cope very well with colds :), I do like the ladies and carry on, I been getting joint ache slightly but thats because of the symptoms of a cold,flu is very different, i have had flu and you are bed ridden and cant move hardly at all, A lot think a common cold is flu though one can have symptoms like flu but if one can walk ,drive etc feeling like crap then its a common cold , i can feel more aches in my tennis elbow,i must give up tennis , and my dodgy shoulder, feeling a little better but dont know how that will be through the day ? thank you :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Yes you do carry on indeed John. Having the flu is not nice which is why I try to keep my immune system strong during summer to prevent getting sick in winter. It usually helps. I think my iron is a bit low. Feeling dizzy since I started working. I forgot to take my vits for 2 weeks. Anyway, I hope you feel better soon and that your dodgy shoulder and elbow doesn't give you pain. Good luck! :)

Get well soon John,honey ,lemon and ginger in warm water and sleep with a cut onion in your room ,tell this to my adult children and they stopped calling me witch as some of my remedies do actually work


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Haha Rosey. I agree. Home remedies do work. I used to drink the syrup of onion (put the onion in a bowl with a little bit of water overnight) for an inflamed chest. I does work but one has to do it for a couple of days. Lemon and ginger in water works just as well. I'm more into home remedies. Never go to a doctor.


 john,AQUA MAN
john,AQUA MAN @chewbacca

I eat raw onions , does help, loaded with vitamin C,I am getting better today so tomorrow i will just have all the left over crap to come out lol, I know someone was telling me they need see a doctor for a cold? i said really, noooo,just eat healthy and do some remedies, doc cant do anything for that but give paracetamol or sum stuff, i said will go if you do as i say lol though its a choice a choice for everyone :)
