Sugar...get rid of it! No sweets....limit carbs. I cut out any overtly obvious sweets and carbs( I will have a carb with dinner or a sandwich, but none at breakfast and no candy ever or desserts of any sort.

My allergies and asthma have been almost nil this year and lot weight.

Also you have a toddler... you will get sick for several years if your toddler is a normal child and plays with other kids. The crowd starts getting flu shots in August and it continues till springs, shedding viruses.

You never said what types of supplements that you are taking that didn’t help. I used to get sick all the time and then I tried bunches of supplements, some of them have seem to help other ones didn’t. Multivitamins are almost worthless. They only help if you don’t have any of them in your body at all which is rare in this country. what I’ve been taking that seems to work is NAC (N-Acetylcysteine), CoQ10, D3, B12, L-lysine. Probiotics are overrated, occasional use is fine, don’t need daily. Vitamin C never seemed to help.

Meant to add, you may have a bacterial infection, which almost always some antibiotics would help.

Supplements in general are meant to prevent nutrient deficiencies brought on by a poor food system

...not to cure or prevent pathogenic disease.

Thus, if your diet is rich enough, you technically shouldn't need supplements.

I eat canned food.
And genetically I have bad nerves.

If I don't take at least magnesium, within 48 hrs like clockwork I get textbook symptoms of Mg deficiency.

How do I keep from getting sick every November?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78084014


Start smoking. One or two cigarettes a day are enough.

All those airborne nasty things jumping from human to human, mostly hate it.
If in doubt consult your local bacon producer why it lasts so long.

Also:
Wash hands often, use sanitiser after touching surfaces touched by a lot of people (door handles, McD touch screens..)

Do not touch your face with your hands. Never unless your hands are clean after having contact with said surfaces or any contact with people. That is an advice I got from a doctor ... and it works.

Contrary to "be a clean person" I also advice getting your hands dirty with garden work, earth, soil ... under every acre of good soil there is the weight of 2 cows worth of microorganisms .. so your immune system gets shit to do all the time and does not get lazy.

Keep home and car cool in winter, feeling a bit cold all the time turns on the bodies engine to keep the body and extremities warm, the higher the revs the more shit gets done.

Also saves heating costs. Yes you will feel a little bit shitty trough the day that is why:

The only place you want warm is your bed, an electrical blanket (or water bed) in my case in a cold room with fresh cold air ... best sleep you will ever get.

Good sleep = good immune system.

I also recommend getting a real daylight-lamp for those dark winter days and use it.

Avoid people, crowds as far as possible.

Every November, like clockwork, I get sick.

I take ridiculous amounts of vitamins and supplements, have for many years.

I eat healthy and don't drink.

Recently a GLP'r was posting about miraculous liposomal vitamin C, so I added that to my daily vitamin cocktail. Started 2 months ago so it could build up in my system.

As it turns out, it's just extra expensive vitamin C. Useless!

I have tried so many things to stay healthy and I still get sick every November. I am ready to throw away all my vitamins! I spend big $ on these things and after many years I'm starting to think it's a waste.

Could it be that health depends more on genetics and has little to do with lifestyle?

How do I keep from getting sick every November?

Our thoughts can be very powerful as we are all energy. How many times have you thought about November and being sick? It is working like clockwork because you believe that you will get sick in November.

instead of using a dishwasher, wash your dishes by hand. This way your hands are always washing away the germs. I wash my hands every time I come home from being out too. I don't clean my house before company comes over, I clean it after they leave. Wipe down door knobs and use vodka for cleaning bathroom sinks and knobs.

Probiotics. Everyday take probiotics.

Can't we just eat yogurt?
 Quoting: Truth Reaper


lol, probably getting more pus discharges than probiotics.

1# most yogurts are not fermented.Just thickeners and added dead culture.
2# even if they have probiotics usually are one or two strains.
3# strains used in yogurts and kefir rise your histamines/inflamation
4# not A2 milk is higly inflammatory and reduces immunity
