      in 43 years and that year I got horribly sick after getting it and ended up hospitalized with the worst sickness I had ever had.  Never had one since and never got the flu.  I use Island treasures Adult Cold and Flu tonic and I do lots of garlicky chicken broth and rest when sick.  The kids do daily multivitamins, and a probiotic (per a Scandinavian study saying it reduced colds and flu in kids by up to 70%) and they take elderberry tonic at the start of any illness.  Sick kid takes the acute dose and rest of the sibs go on the maintenance dose.  We use the Sambucus brand.  

      •  Sambucus. Yes, I forgot I have some (0+ / 0-)

        Thanks for reminding me.  I have added to the above regime.

        and it tastes great.

        It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
