November Coughs and Colds

Hi Helen,

As you’ve learned from bitter experience, this is the season of coughs, colds and infections and people with ME are more susceptible than others.

All you can do is to take even better loving care of yourself and perhaps increase your Vegepa dose to 10 capsules per day until you’re over this chesty cough.

Drink plenty of fluids, especially hot lemon and honey as often as you can and increase your intake of yellow, orange and red fruit and vegetables.

Aim to keep your body at a steady temperature, go outside if you feel like it as sunlight is always a valuable immune booster but dress up warmly and come back into a warm house!

Take less or no dairy foods and try to raise your head and shoulders with a few extra pillows at night to increase circulation and prevent the phlegm settling on your chest.

This will pass soon enough and with your abundance of patience (one of the positive lessons from ME!) you’ll be back to normal and ready for the stresses of Christmas!

Dear Lynne,

Thanks once again for my recent order. I hope all is well with you.
I have been suffering with a chesty cold, but expect to be soon “back to normal”!

Very best wishes,
