After my breast cancer, I hardly get sick at all. I haven't been sick in 11 years. Yup that is so!. I guess all of the drugs they put in my body during the cancer, cured my cancer and have not been sick since. Really!!! If I do get a cold, it lasts one day!!!

Making sure you get proper vitamins and nutrients help...I added everything to my counter and I am keeping close eye on things. I have a vitamin D deficiency. I was sick every day almost. ALL the time. When my doctor took the test and said my vitamin D was critically low, she put me on 2000 I.U's a day of it. Now when I get sick it is less severe and I am not sick half as bad. I guess vitamin D is major in helping your cells mature and function correctly. It also helps prevent cancers, and studies are showing links between vitamin d deficiency and Multiple Sclerosis! So make sure you are getting accurate nutrition. I also daily take a vitamin. I go for the soft gel natural multivitamins because some people can't digest the coating on things like centrum...the soft gels help it absorb more naturally. For being sick already vitamin c is good...also sleep. A LOT of sleep. If you can and you feel tired, sleep. The more sleep you get the more quick your body gets over being sick. These are things I am finding out help. Hot shower steam can help loosen up goo too, and eucalyptus oil in the bath or shower helps. At wal mart they have a cold and flu bath shower gel made from it. Hope some of this helps. It is what I use and it helps me, and the vitamin thing works more preventative.
