Not required as I'm beautiful enough thanks. Off sick all week and confined to bed. Getting too much of it. Doctors orders.

I've been ill since early December and just cannot shake it off but like a fool kept going to work. Yesterday was my first day off, bored already.
It's an Eucalyptus!!!!!!

I find taking large quantities of Vit C, and Echinacea at the recommended dose, really help my immune system to fight bugs off before they take hold. Get better quick.

Ahhhh you almost sound like you care about me GG!!!! I have been prescribed 5 lots of pills so I am chewing on those. Sitting by a roaring stove here and I am still cold. What is Echinacea? Vitamin C, naaah, I prefer to take vitamin G.

That is not a Silver Birch either, yet another Eucalyptus! I see the seagulls are still playing football.

Echinacea is extracted from the flower of that name, which is native to the prairies of N America (also known as Coneflower). It is well known for its ability to boost the immune system.

Next time you come down to the sunny south east bring me down a bit. I could do with a full service the way I'm feeling.

I have been reading up on your Echinacea GG, the experts don't agree with you I'm afraid. I may stick with the anti-biotics.

A doctor calls his patient and says; the cheque you gave me for my bill came back. The patient replied: Well! So did my arthritis!

There are many opinions as to the efficacy of herbal remedies. My own view is that I will take stuff if it does no harm - and if the placebo works, bring it on!
