My dh is in the state patrol academy. He has to sleep there Mon-Fri. Anyway, one guy has been continuously sick and refused to go to the doctor. He's passed on something to everyone else and now he has pneumonia. We think he had the flu.<br><br>
SO, dh just called and they're sending home almost half the class, because they are all so sick. Dh included. I'm taking him to urgent care, but I'm also going to the health food store. What can I get him? I know the osco-whatever the heck it is. Can't remember the spelling, but I need ideas to get this stuff out of him and boost his immune system. No time to do research.<br><br>
Please help! He's got to be well FAST!

Vit C (soduim acsorbate sp? kind) and lots of raw garlic. I hope he's better soon!

Have your dh eat it. I usually cut it up small and swallow it. It's a good natural anti-biotic/viral.

Or you can crush a few cloves and boil it in a bit of water and have him drink it as tea. Sometimes I add fresh ginger too.

Look at the 'lobster gut' recipe at the bottom in particular.

I find that a good miso soup helps me when I'm sick. You can get it in a dried, put it in a coffee cup form, or from a japanese or teryaki restaurant<br><br>
I hope he feels better.<br>

Thank you! We just got back from urgent care. He's got a really bad case of bronchitis, possibly pneumonia. If he's not better by Monday, he'll be going back for chest x-rays.<br><br>
The dr. gave him Zithromax. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> And an inhaler. We went to the hfs, where I bought oregano oil, some more Vit C, Zinc, and a cough expectorant.<br><br>
On my way to make him some soup and oj. I'll come back and read more from the links.<br><br>
Thanks again.
