Boy do I wish there was a magic bullet! Proper sleep and *exceptional* nutrition are the only sure things--isn't that what the experts say?
Have you ever tried a green drink? (Buy at a health food store. Mix the green powder in water. Tastes yummy....like grazing in a pasture...
) In all seriousness, although I do not have CD, I've always felt like I got the short end of the stick when it comes to immunity (ear, throat, bronchial infections far too often my whole life long). Since I've been using a green drink I've had little to none of those. Sometimes stopping it in its tracks.
Don't really know why it works...something about
making the body more alkaline...also lots of antioxidants...CrazyHarry here on this forum speaks highly of his green drink...
I haven't been able to get my son on board, though. He says he'd rather go mow the lawn with his teeth.
Just thought I'd share. Google it! There are tons of brands out there.
Some folks (not necessarily here) are raving about
Acai and Noni juice, too. Again, full of antioxidants. More pricey, though.
Hope you feel better soon!
