I would say drink two glass of lemonade a day till the cold gets cured which in experience would take least two or three days . It really works .
Dr. Edme Regnier published a book called "There is a Cure for the Common Cold" in the late 60s. It involves megadosing with vitamin C. Here's the protocol:
When you notice the first symptoms, there's still time to kill the cold by:
1. Take 750 mg of vitamin c, then take 625 mg of vitamin c every 3 hours thereafter.
2. Before you go to bed, take another 750 mg. Do this for 3 days and you won't get the cold.
If you've had the symptoms for 2 or more days, it won't work; it's too late.
To prevent a cold, take 250 mg of vitamin c twice daily (500 mg/day) from August 15 and continue until June 1st of the next year. You don't need the vitamin c in the summer months.
I haven't had a cold in about 15 months, but I've been using 2000 IU of vitamin D3 (5 times/week). I'm going to add vitamin C as soon as I can find a good source.
The author stated that most studies aren't using enough vitamin C. You need around 5 g/day to kill the cold and that 5 g has to be taken in multiple doses, not 1 large dose, because it is a water soluble vitamin which gets eliminated in the urine.Diogenes said:There have been several studies on megavitamin therapy and the results are not exactly stellar.
It's too late. Stop taking the emergen-C. After the first day, if you take vitamin C, that'll actually prolong the cold. Most colds don't last more than 12 days. The author was able to stretch out a cold to 28 days using vitamin C.Devin87 said:I'm still taking one packet a day because I still have a bit of a stuffed nose/cough/scratchy voice (which sucks because I use my voice all day at work). But it's not helping all that much.
