Health Question & Answer

Call this number: (800) 370 - 3447 and order Nucleotides and Vitamin C. Both of these items from this company will work for you. Do NOT take the typical Ascorbic Acid garbage you find in stores that claims to be vitamin C, it is not. It is only a small part of the C complex that depletes your body of the C cofactors. It won't even cure scurvy.

Take 1 nucleotide capsule every 1/2 hour all day and evening. If you do this the first day you feel the symptoms, you will not have the cold the next day. Take about 6 Vitamin C capsules per day as well.

If you get a cold, it takes about 2 days instead of 1 to get rid of the cold using the above suggestion.

good luck to youHealth Question & Answer

No problem. Grapefruit seed extract. Put about 10 drops in a 8 ounce glass of water and drink. It is nasty but works wonders. If you can't stand the taste put 5 drops in 2 ounces of water and drink but immediately follow with a glass of water. Do at least 2 times a day. In between gargle every hour and spit out. You can also rince your nose with a Q tip with the solution. You will begin to feel better after your first day but continue it for a few days gradually decreasing the intake.

GSE comes in a red and white bottle at the health food store. Cost about 8 bucks.Health Question & Answer
