  •  I have used elderberry extract for years to (4+ / 0-)

    prevent the flu. I have had the flu one time in 13 years of using that. I highly recommend it. I also buy jr preparations for the kids. And there are infant preparations too.

    If you honestly believe that it can't work just because you don't know about it, then that says more about you than me.

    My advice if you decide to try it is stick with a brand that has a good reputation that uses a standardized extract.

    Also wait til you see what taking a teaspoon of raw local honey will do for your allergies. Amazing stuff. And you can experiment. When you stop taking it, the effect wears off. So you can go on and off as many times as you need to convince yourself that it is indeed working.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).

      i'm talking about retroviruses.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      •  You mean like AIDs? (0+ / 0-)

        Are we now going to argue about the "differences" between macro and micro evolution?

        I was talking about viruses, Though some people might use this as a complimentary treatment for a suppressed immune system to stave off regular viral infections or activity.

        I don't have HIV-AIDs, so while I see that pop up in literature, I don't see anything claiming to cure it out right. But I have found a variety of materials used to prevent the flu, the cold (things as simple as zinc lozenges) and cold sores/ herpes.

        Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
