That stinks! Sorry you are getting sick so often. I never get sick. I am not sure if it has to do with me taking tons of supplements and juicing daily. I've been taking vit C daily since I was a kid. I've never had the flu and haven't had a cold in many many years. I did get a weird cough this year, but it was just a weird cough. Not a sore throat or running nose or anything. Maybe you could try the vit c and juicing veggies

I know it really does stink, but the funny thing is that i have only gotten sick a few times before this. I will try to eat lots of bit C and since i eat about 3 carrots daily i will keep that up and maybe even add more! I will probably also drink lots!!
Thanks for the advice

Don't know about the "Wellness Pill" but do know a thing or two about Strep Throat . And since you mentioned a sore throat and repeat infections . . .it's worth noting that Strep Throat is caused by a Bacteria. The good news is, there's antibiotics for it . . .the bad news, however, is that our bodies don't build up immunity to it like we do to viruses. And while we're often careful to avoid re exposure by friends/family, we often forget to switch out our toothbrush . When I have strep, 24 hours after beginning antibiotic regime, I toss out my toothbrush and use an inexpensive temporary brush (new) until I've finished the entire course, then open a new brush. Sounds a little anal, I know . . .but I rarely get reinfected

Hope you feel better soon

When I get sick, I soak my toothbrush in hydrogen pyroxide between brushing to kill the germs....

Good idea! I don't know why I never think of that germ infested tooth brush!

Its like that air bone stuff if you take it right when you are feeling off it seems to stop a cold from getting bad. It might be sociological but it has worked for me.
I only had strep throat once and I was only 19 but it knocked me out. I have never been so sick. You can see it on the back of your throat its white. Yuck .
I also found something else new for me when I get congested I take musonex I cant spell it . Not for a soar throat but great for a cough and sinus.
