Zicam: Cold Remedy Oral Mist

This stuff works like you wouldn't believe.

I have been on antibiotics for over a week for my teeth.

But I still got a small sore throat that hung around for three days. Finally I used the "Zicam". Every four hours three times, once before bed. The next morning the sore throat was gone and has not returned.

Every time I've used this stuff it has worked like you wouldn't believe.

The trick is the earlier you use it the better it works and the faster it gets rid of whatever ails you

I have no stock in this company; just telling y'all because you guys are my friends and this stuff really works. NO MORE COMMON COLDS. It is unbelievable.

Balancing data point: doesn't do anything for me.

Sore throats associated with a cold might be expected to go away after three days, anyway.

The clinical evidence for this stuff's efficacy is in dispute, as well.

Not saying it doesn't work, just that there is conflicting evidence and opinion. [Smile]

You would not expect antibiotics to do anything for the common at all, though - just to be clear.

You should never, ever take antibiotics for a cold; they only work on bacterial infections, and if you take antibiotics when you don't have a bacterial infection you turn your own normal bacterial friends into a reservoir of antibiotic-resistance capability that they can then transfer to disease-causing bacteria if and when you get sick.

</rant>

However, I also have great results with zinc gluconate. The homeopaths say that it's important not to mix it with citrus, for whatever that's worth; but I, also, take that stuff religiously when I start getting sick.

I know the miracle cure for the common cold. For 3.5 years, my son was under treatment for Leukemia and consequently he had a compromised immune system. And if he spiked a fever over 99 degrees for half an hour, we had to go immediately to the emergency room. Over those 3.5 years, our family of five had maybe a total of three colds. And the answer?

Handwashing. Everyone who came into our house immediately had to wash their hands. We all washed our hands regularly. And colds almost disappeared.

Not much good after the fact, but I highly recommend it as a general practice.

I'm a hermit, so hand washing does nothing for me. When I have to go out into the public, I invariably catch something because my anti-virus hasn't been updated.

Crazy that. We have to get sick to keep from getting sick. Whaaa-?

If I feel one coming on, I load up on zinc lozenges, an echinacea-golden seal blend, lots of green tea, and double up on my vitamins. Usually kicks it in a few days without it ever settling into more than a mild sore throat and a bit of the sniffles.
