:mad: My issue is that every time i get a cold or flu, it stays with me for longer than most other people. It starts 99% of the time with a chronic sore throat. My nose then gets blocked and my phlegm turns green. Finally the phlegm moves into my chest. It usually takes about 3 weeks to go away maybe a month sometimes. I dont like using anti-biotics, so the last time I got sick I let my body fight it, but that meant full on resting for a week, no activity at all. Now I am back at work and have to get up and go. How do I get over this, without taking anti-biotics. Can anyone help??
