geez... try caprylic acid next time , thats what I do
whenever I get a cold or pneumonia.
you just look up the life cycle or cell division time of the bacteria that caused it , tuberculosis is 15-20 hours for instance.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycobacterium_tuberculosis#Evolution
I use a small coffee bean grinder and will usually grind up
three of the 365 mg tablets the first dose and mix it in a
glass of water, then sip on it , making sure that my mouth
and throat get a good drinching.
caution.. it will instantly kill any bacteria lining
your throat exposing the flesh that the bacteria had
been feeding on and this exposure to the caprylic acid
will cause the flesh to burn slightly for a few seconds.
this burning feeling is only felt the first dose however
so its well worth it to me.
then for example if the cell division time is 15-20 hours
I will decrease the dose to 2 tablets and take the next dose
in 14 hours , and follow this until I have no symptoms then I
can stop in a few more days.
normaly if its just a cold I will only need to take 2 for starters then 1 for a day or so because this stuff is really
hell on bacteria.
I normally take a probiotic a hour or so after each dose
because this stuff just kills all bacteria it comes in contact
oh well , hope you can recover and feel better soon.
