oooo I love garlic and ginger, so its AWESOME to know that eating it helps my immune system!!! I did not know that Vit C helped with inflammation...interesting! NO idea that immunity comes from the intestines! I already use echinacea and zinc and swear by it! Thanks for the new info as well as supporting stuff I was already doing!

The first few co-workers have been out sick, so I am looking for ways to fight back. Thanks for the tips.

As a student at CU Boulder and an athlete on the soccer team here, traveling, school, and stress is a big factor in my life. Often the fear of being sick lingers in the back of my mind. Its so nice to know that I can depend on Whole Foods right down the street to be cheap and take care of my immune system. Like the podcast said, vitamine C is extremely important and it wasnt until i left home that I realized how important healthy eating was! Thanks Whole Foods!

It's such a shame that we get really busy during flu season (and lose sleep), thus setting ourselves up for getting sick. Great tips on how to try to stay well!

This was a great podcast. I knew about garlic, ginger, vitamin C, and probiotics. The herbs and mushroom complexes are very interesting. I hope to incorporate some soon.

Thank you for the tips! I recently discovered that low iron has been leaving me sleepy and cold so I also recommend not letting odd things with your body go unnoticed without trying to solve the problem. I could have had a lot more time on weekends if I had looked into my sleepiness earlier!

thanks for the tips! I knew that garlic is beneficial to the immune system, but for some reason I had forgotten all about that for some time. Now that it's fall it's time for me to start eating it again.

Just used crushed garlic on my feet this week to help combat my oncoming cold. Definitely makes a difference!

Garlic and ginger. I get my ginger when I eat sushi. And I love to stir-fry with garlic. Vitamin C from oranges. Zinc from multi-vitamin supplements. Good sleep and daily exercises is something I definitely try to do. Hopefully I'm set for healthy winter.

Great advice! Vitamin C is pretty cheap and easy to get, and if that helps keep my immune system in working order, sounds good to me!

Interesting podcast. Our ancestors used herbs to cure, some not so successfully. But they knew the ones that worked. We shouldn't snub our noses at generations of knowledge.
