Re: What precautions are you taking?
I haven't had a cold or flu since 1999, when I started researching supplements--and changed my diet and lifestyle.
I take odorless garlic soft gels regularly, 1,000 mg three times a day, or 2,000 mg three times a day if I have been exposed to something. I also wash my hands, especially if I have been out in a public place, and avoid touching my nose, mouth or eyes with anything other than tissue.
Diet changes I made years ago also help, I believe. I drink at least six glasses of water a day, and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. I avoid most sugary foods, as well as high fat foods. I try to get some exercise every day. It all helps.
The garlic gelcaps are available at Wal-Mart, about $6.00 for a bottle, well worth the money I think. As for the other changes--I did that gradually, and am still changing the way I live. I would far rather be healthy than indulge my sweet tooth and be sick most of the time. I'd rather work out than be sitting and aching, which was what was happening before.
