I take two on guard softgels three times a day. I put lemon oil in my water and drink lots of it to flush my system out. I use peppermint beadlets for the frogs in my throat. Take on guard beadlets throughout the day to combat any bugs that may lie in my throat.
It's now Monday and I've been able to fend off the fevers and stopped the oncoming illness, so far. Sunday morning I woke up feeling like crap and started sweating off the fever. I continued to pump my system full of oils no matter how crappy I felt. I know I'm not good when I'm not hungry the entire day. I know I'm getting better when I get punched in the gut with starvation pangs.
