strengthen the inside while avoiding germs
I retired early from my teaching job, because of the exposure to sick middle schoolers. It was not worth a possible 3rd bout with GBS. I take lots of vitamin C capsules to keep my white blood cells healthy – and they are the ones which fight off infections. Linus Pauling was right. We need around 5-7 grams to keep us healthy. When I feel a cold coming on, I take Olive Leaf extract. It fights off bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites (worms, etc) You have to know what you are doing before taking it, because there is a “die off” where you might feel worse for a day or two as it kills off the germs and your body has to clean it up – if you are really sick. I do alot of what was suggested in the other posts – trying to avoid the situations. But many of the germs are in the air. So we have to make sure our bodies are strong and healthy to fight it off. I am sorry that I had not known about olive leaf when I got GBS the second time. I think it would have helped the C.
