I get amused looks from some of my friends, thinking that my improved health is a figment of my imagination. So... here I am, about 8 months after my ultra-mild cold, letting you know (in the interests of objectivity, if there ever is such a thing) that I came down with a more substantial cold last Thursday. I found myself using quite a few kleenex (maybe twenty in a day) and experienced a headache that lasted until Friday, when I hit it with ibuprofen. I certainly didn't feel a hundred percent, but did carry on with work and other routines without any difficulty. How often do you get a cold? (I'm still thinking this is a long period). Now, on Sunday, it is fading away. I suppose the real point is, this is not an expensive way to boost health, and there really isn't a credible mechanism for it to harm, so why wouldn't it be worth trying? I suppose the old mushroom cloud still hangs over a lot of people's subconscious. It's a shame.
