Preventative measures to ward off illness:

1. Take one zinc tablet daily, double dose when you FIRST feel a scratch in your throat. Zinc helps build a strong immune system. Taking zinc after you have already caught a cold or other illness doesn't help.

2. Use hand sanitizer. I have a small bottle that I put in my clock pouch on my jeans. Anytime I come into contact (outside of the house) with anything or anybody, I take it out, squirt some on, and wipes my hands all over. If someone sneezes in my general area, I take out the sanitizer, put some on the tips of my fingers and insert and rub around the inside of my nose.

As I said before, I got sick all of the time before doing the above, and if I got a cold, I was out for days in bed.

Works for me. YMMV

Good luck and speedy recovery.
