  • I like most parts of the article. In response to the Echinacea, you did say that it may, not that it would impact illness, so I appreciate that aspect of it. However, I am concerned about drinking plenty of orange/grapefruit juice. Vit C has been studied and has found to only be effective in people who are exposed to extreme conditions. Also, juices tend to be very high in sugar, which can be detremental in fighting off infection. If Vit. C was taken, I would recommend the supplement route or an alternative food source for it. I do thank you for the article and will use most of the information in it. - 1/30/2009 9:23:40 AM
  • Thanks for the article. I'm in day 2 of what I think is the flu, and it's nice to know there is something I can do to recover more quickly. - 11/24/2008 6:22:57 PM
  • Nice article. It is great to hear someone talking about what we can do to help ourselves. I don't believe as many shots and pills would be necessary if we didn't live in a mindset where it always has to be a quick fix. We were created in a wonderful way, we just need to take care of our bodies. - 11/7/2008 10:07:08 AM

  • Ms. Hand, This was a good article, but I wonder if the latest research still supports the idea that Echinacea can have any real, positive impact on illness, or preventing illness? It seems that I read something that refuted Echinacea's usefulness. - 5/4/2008 11:16:14 PM
