Down with the sickness

02Jul09

So I have been a bit under the weather the past two days.  By under the weather, I mean at home, in bed, chugging OJ and swabbing my nose with zinc-covered Q-tips in the futile hope that I’ll be well enough to go back to work tomorrow.

In my sickly internet wanderings, I happened upon HealthyFellow.com, a natural medicine blog that has – among other natural intelligence for your health – a few posts on the prevention and treatment of colds.  One article promotes the use of ginseng to prevent and treat cold symptoms.  The author conducted a study that concluded ginseng users had a lower incidence of colds AND their colds lasted fewer days than the placebo users.

Note to sick self #1: Buy some ginseng.
