One of the most effective remedies that I use when I am starting to feel like I am coming down with something is (Natures Way) Organic Sambucas brand Bio-Certified Elderberry syrup; it is virologist tested and the efficacy has been proven in clinical trials. You can buy this at Whole Foods Market or many health food stores. It is very effective. It does not contain alcohol or gluten, btw and it does not taste bad LOL.

Lucy's mom . . .hope you're feeling better today

Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) is a great antibacterial as long as it isn't ingested . . .but has no effect on viruses. (but of course, once you've had a virus you have built up immunity) A couple of years ago, the CDC issued a warning against using a product being called "food grade" peroxide because its 35% and far to strong to be used as an antibacterial.

I have one of those UV Sanitizers that came with my previous model electric toothbrush . . .but I still prefer just to replace the brush with a new one after an illness, which fortunately, isn't often.

I usually boil my toothbrush for a few minutes--prefer it over chemicals.

Well, of course you would rinse the hydrogen peroxide off before brushing you teeth! Not so much injesting the chemicals...

I didn't mean to offend with my reply. I use hydrogen peroxide for first aid but I'm squeamish about putting it on my toothbrush although I'm sure it rinses clean. Just throwing another option out there. :-). I also boil my kitchen sponge a couple times a week and it comes out super clean and fresh smelling and makes sponges last longer--or I put it in a glass bowl with water and microwave for 5 mins. So satisfying! My DH says I'm a little germophobic and he's probably right.
