Hi all, I was hoping someone out there could help me with a problem my sister is having. It seems she has been sick a *lot* lately. Not serious illness, just a cold here, light case of bronchitis there, occasionally strep throat, then another cold, perhaps the flu a week or so get the idea. She is newly married, and this is frusterating to both her and her new husband. She has been missing a lot of work, and generally getting annoyed. She asked me what I recommended, and I told her the following: lots of vitamin C; NO caffine; when healthy, make sure you excercise; drink your eight glasses of water a day; make sure to get all your daily vitamins; reduce unhealthy food intake and increase healthy food intake...just a lot of "duh" stuff.

I was wondering if anyone had anything more specific I could tell her. Thanks in advance!

One of the old herbs (classified as a veg.), onion. Have her eat one raw small to medium onion every day. Preferably a sweet one like the Vidalia's. It isn't an apple, but it's colds or acquiring a taste for sweet onions. I am way up in years, to many to remember. It works.
