hi. for about 4 or 5 weeks now i have had a mild earache and have been taking about 4,000 mg of vit c a day then about 2 weeks ago i got a sore throat and then the cold fully came out about a week ago. i have had probably the same as quite a few of you have had, sweating, aches etc. i have also been taking for about 4 weeks sambucol and for about a week now echinachea tincture. not really sure what else i can do to make this virus go away naturally. my ear still hurts and i still have this cold :-( any further suggestions anyone? oh and i have been using lavender oil in my aroma stones to kill off the virus in the house. i have run out of tea tree!
