Ways to Fight
Cold And Flu

a real germaphobe
because I get very
next to me starts
when they don’t
cover their mouth.
I’ll let the first one slide but if it happens
again, I am apt to leave or hand them
a Kleenex. Cover it! Is it just me or are
you that way too? If you feel like you’re
coming down with something, here are
1. Oil of oregano is a super strong
germ fighter. The essential oil of oregano
is sold at health food stores and online
in a little dropper bottle. Pour one or
two drops in your own ‘medicinal herb
tea’ (wink) and then drink it. It will not
taste pleasant. You will probably curse
me. But it’s going to help you. Squeeze
some lemon and honey into it. The key
ingredients in oregano are carvacarol and
thymol, both of which inhibit the growth
of hundreds of microorganisms.
2. Probiotics should be taken daily
for proper immunity, but when you feel
symptoms coming on, then of course
I feel like you should at least double up
on the dose. I am not afraid of taking
probiotics throughout the day, I’m more
afraid of feeling miserable and sick. High-
quality probiotics will improve the quality
and count of your healthy disease-fighting
bacteria. Some strains will even induce
IL-10-producing regulatory T cells which
is a scientific way of saying they reduce
inflammation, and can help immune
function as well as inflammatory disorders
of the gut like painful Crohn’s.
3. FluNada is a natural over-the-
counter spray that I squirt into my throat.
You can (and should) spray this product
into your nose because this is the point
of entry for germs. FluNada contains
a homeopathic blend of wintergreen,
eucalyptus and elderberry essential oils.
FluNada is sold at Walgreens if you need
it right now, and if you’re feeling like
you’re coming down with something,
NOW is the time. This product was tested
by two independent labs and found to be
99.9 percent effective against multiple
cold and flu strains, including swine, bird
and seasonal flu. FluNada provides non-
drowsy relief from multiple symptoms,
including runny or blocked nose, sore
throat, cough and body aches and pains
4. If you keep rummaging around
in my purse, you will find teabags of
flavored green tea. It is common for me
to ask the waitress at a restaurant for a
little cup of hot water “because I have my
own medicinal herbs.” Sam affectionately
scolded me once saying, “Do you realize
we live in Colorado? She thinks your little

Dear Mom & Me,
I am a single woman – a retired career
educator. My career was foremost so
I never married, but I now realize how
much I have missed.
After I retired, I was thrilled to be able
to stay in my home and enjoy the many
pleasures. But I now realize that this can-
not go on too much longer and I must
make a change, as I am completely on
my own with no family.
I have interviewed many complexes
and have one very basic problem: I am
terrified that I will not have the financial
resources to see me to the end, and then
I will be out on the street. What do I do
In today’s economy, many singles
and married people are having the same
problem as you. Nobody knows for sure
what is ahead.
I would suggest that you get all of the
information you can about your financial
position and seek the counsel of an ex-
perienced, older financial advisor; maybe
she/he will have the answer for you.
So far as what you have “missed,”
many married women envy you. They
would have loved having a career and all
of the glamour in your life rather than a
life of domesticity.
What’s to regret? What did you miss?
You made a life for yourself as a single
professional. You can make a life for
yourself as a retired single professional.
Being married is not a requirement to
participate in social activities and net-
working. Many single women (divorced
or widowed) are enjoying rich social lives.
The key is you need to take an active
role in creating your social connections
through church, senior centers, local
parks and recreation programming.
