I feel like a nut too! I think the media hype hasn't helped anything. I just have to remind myself that I got the flu last year and my family didn't. My DD even kept hopping in bed with me and my DH slept with me. I had them on vitamin d, but I had run myself into the ground. I won't do that again. Although from previous experience, if I got the flu one year it seems to take several before I get it again.
I'm keeping iodine on hand. Making granola with coconut oil. My kiddos are getting vitamin D3 drops, a good multi with a high zinc content and extra probiotics. I'm taking iodine, systemic enzymes, probiotics, Vitamin D3 and extra zinc.
DD is calling come on Mommy! If I think of something else, I'll fill in the blanks.
L-lysine is supposed to be good too. Asprin is an anti-viral, but reyes (?) syndrome may be a deterant.
A friend of mine's little boy is recovering from pneumonia which started with the flu. Just keep your eyes open and trust your gut!!!
Hugs to all!
