"Alternative" medicineRecently, a whole lot of fuss has been thrown over some medicinal supplements and whether or not they are effective. More precisely, the federal government has been throwing a fuss over whether or not medicinal supplements are effective.
I can only speak from personal experience, but I can tell you that I take garlic, Echinacea, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and iron every day. Because of my disability my immune system is normally weaker than the average person’s, and this time of year I am especially susceptible to various forms of infectious disease.
Since I began my regimen last year:
I got over a bronchial infection within four days with the help of extra Vitamin C.
The oil from a garlic pill helped cure a nasty inner ear infection.
I was only “sick” twice last year, as opposed to the normal 5-6 times a year.
