constant colds.. calling all experts

Posted by Kelly on September 24, 2002 at 10:19:15:

I am sooooooooooo frustrated right now. For the past 12 months, I am getting colds like crazy. I KNOW they are colds and not allergies because the drainage is yellowish and just not typical allergy stuff. I will get over one and then a few weeks later, I will develope another. I bet since last September I have had about 12-15 colds!!!!!! Add a couple sore throats in there and a couple intestinal bugs and we are talking about someone that is sick all the time! I do not know what to do. I have been to a doctor about six months ago and he ran general blood work and said everything looked okay and basically disregarded it. What could be going on with my immune system to cause this? I know that wellness is something I need to crack down on. BUT, are there any major diseases that should be ruled out that can act like this? FYI... I know I am HIV NEGATIVE because I was tested once for my own piece of mind. I really did not need the one test I had but I did it anyway. Can anyone list the possible diseases that could cause me to get so frequently sick so I can have them ruled out with my internist? Thanks a lot.

Hi Kelly - Order a product called "Echinacea Plus" which will build-up your immune system. Take one droper full - 2X a day in water or juice - for one week - then skip a week - then take it again for a week and alternate it like that, all through the winter months and as long as you eat right and get enough sleep, you will be cold free. To order phone: 1-800-437-2362 - cost $30.00. * Rick *

I used to get colds a few days after I ran
myself down. Looking for something that
would fight the exhaustion I found that a
multi vit brought me back about half way and
I wouldn't catch a cold.

Do you see any patternos something that
happens before they start ?

You need to start practicing WELLNESS! I too had frequent colds/flu and I looked on Dr. Stoll's homepage under "cure for the common cold". The ester-c is VERY important in prevention but, total wellness is the way to go. Look on the archive page about Dr. Stoll's three-legged aproach to wellness and if you follow this, colds/flu will become a thing of the past. Education and motivation take time but, the payoffs are well worth it.

Hi, Kelly.

The color of your drainage has nothing to do with whether this is allergy or viral.

This is most likely a developing hypresensitivity to something. The easiest things to check are dairy and wheat.

Use the elimination/provocation protocol and see if either one of them will eliminate your symptoms within a couple of weeks.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt

Also, Kelly.

Listen to Jon, VF & Rick. IF this IS viral this will help directly.

Thanks everyone for your advice. I appreciate all the things to try and I will follow up with the advice. But, Walt... one thing that would give me peace of mind would be knowing that a disease process (like a lymphoma/leukemia) would not be causing this?.... can you comment on diseases that would suppress one's immune system that would, in turn, cause what I am experiencing? Thanks

Thanks, Kelly.

Assuming that the docs you have been seeing are conventionally competent, these 2 diagnoses are extremely easy to make.
