Need Help Recovering From Cold/flu

Hi all, in recent years I've been getting struck pretty hard with cold/flu where it takes me up several weeks to fully recover. Typically lingering cough for several weeks.

I was sick both weekend days and then had to take 3 days off work and still recovering.


This tends to happen when I work out after not working out for a while. guessing my immune system gets compromised. 


Any tips on helping recover faster and getting this cough to go away?


Also any tips for future to help maintain my immune system after a workout?


Thanks all

    vitamin c taken frequently during the day, zinc, vitamin d, nac, ginger, garlic, honey

    It doesn't get easier... It's you who gets better.

  • I second the garlic. Obliterates my colds. Forget the FODMAPs, coherence disruption blah blah. Garlic is medicine. Keep it raw, cut it, let it sit, chew it.

    Sleep. There's no such thing as too much in this case.
