something i have been exsperimenting with over the past few months is trying to give my immune system the best possible chance. i am swamping my body with natural vitamins making homemade soup enough to last a week so its there when i come in from work and exhausted .there is no fussing just throw any veg as many colours as possible into a pan with o
rganic veg stock bring to boil cook 10 mins with lid on. leave to infuse while you regain some energy. then blend totally. i must say i have had days since i started this when ive felt half normal. why not give it a go derekh it may help fight the infection. hope you are feeling better soon. with this crazy illness our bodies need all the help it can get.
Like sunshine in the morning, may this brighten up your day and show you that you're thought of in a warm and loving way.

I was told when my immune goes down and i keep taking infections etc., to take 1000 (2 tablets) of Vit C.
As the body cant store VC then you take it for two weeks - chewable ones are the best i have found.
Not sure if it works, but plenty of fruit and veg helps too.
