What to Do When You Feel a Cold Coming on

This guide is what you should do when you either feel sickness coming on, or are sick.

We’ve all had those times where we wake up one morning feeling absolutely terrible. Where you can barely open your eyes, and your nose is stuffed beyond belief. This guide is for the moment before that happens, when you think you’re about to get sick. As soon as you feel that sickness coming on, whether it be a cold, flu, fever, what be it. Go to your local Walgreenes, CVS, or any pharmaceutical store and purchase ‘Emergenc’, at CVS I know it costs $12.99 so it’s probably around the same price elsewhere. Emergenc is a packet you put into 6-8 ounces of water, much like Gatorade packets, and you just stir it up. Each packet contains 1,667% your daily value of vitamin C. You’re only supposed to have 100% per day, so 16x that will get you feeling better in no time.

Last night, I was feeling pretty ill. I took four pouches since then, and now I am feeling a whole lot better. Each box of Emergenc contains 30 packets, and as well as an obscene ammount of Vitamin C, it also contains Vitamins A, B, D, E, and many other vitamins. It’s basically your daily  nutritional values, plus some.

If you’re already sick, I recommend taking 3-4 of these packets throughout the day, and get plenty of bed rest. You should be back to normal in no time.

  1. hey,

    I have never heard of it, but from your description here, I think we have same kind of medicine and it is called “coldrex”, now it would be exciting to go to the pharmacy and check if we have medicine called like that :)
    In Estonia, here will be no chance to stay in bed if you are sick…at least for working people.. Our goverment has made it pretty hard with their new laws… You could get fired or as usual…loosing lot´s of money. Our boss threatens the whole time that we can lose our job.

    When I was sick, I took Coldrex with me and drank it with others who were sick and it helped to get trough the day.

    Well written article by the way! :)

  2. Great advice, Spencer. A friend of mine recommended this to me, years ago, and I had forgotten, so thanks for the reiteration. Great read too, I do enjoy your articles!!! :)
