I have done it with my girls (2 and 3yo) at the first sign of a cold, and so far it has seemed to keep it from progressing for the most part. It worked 3 times out of 4 so far this year on my 3yo, who was sick with a cold last year every 2-3 weeks from October to April. My 2 yo has needed the tx twice, and has not had the cold or flu yet.
Last week, my hubby tried the tx when he was coming down with a cold. It did not progress, but he did have a slight cold for a week. But, he did not treat himself every 4 hrs as recommended. He did it one morning and then that evening, then the next evening.
