Easter was approaching and my hubby was feeling terrible with an awful cold and coughing so hard it would hurt his sides and leave him short of breath. I did NOT want to catch it and get sick, especially with the holiday coming up. I decided to take a chance on something I'd never done before -- I got some Airborne, which is supposed to help minimize symptoms and duration of a cold. In addition to taking the tablets, I got rest and of course washed my hands every time I turned around! And then the day after Easter my daughter was diagnosed with strep, and I REALLY didn't want to get that! Now I can't say I've totally avoided the germs, because I've had a slight sore throat and off and on sinus headache; but so far I haven't been attacked too hard. Perhaps it's because I regularly take vitamins, exercise, and eat healthy, but I figured the Airborne couldn't hurt. Some people swear by these "preventives". I'm not too sure. What do you think? Have you tried any of them and did it seem to help you ward off a cold?
