I’m 3 days out from a championship competition, and feel a cold coming on. Post nasal drip, to be exact, is starting to come into play. What is an effective protocol for nipping this thing before I start to feel weak?
I’m on allegra, that’s about it right now. Suggestions, please.
This is from a throwers forum, never tried it so don’t know, don’t take my word for it.
"Cold Medicine-Worked everytime
As athletic traininer in college and part-time pro I used this receipe for many years and it always worked.
Dress in your best (warmest sweats + towel around the neck): Go to kitchen:
Mix: 1 can Lemonade (frozen)
2 Cans of warm water
1 can of Jack Daniels
Drink as much as possible as quickly as possible and get into bed. Get at least 10-12 hours of sleep. Mild case of diarreaha (sp) in a.m., but you will be better and feel almost great. Make sure that the athlete is at least 21 or under direct supervision. I believe that you can find many coaches in Nebraska that were given this fomuale when sick prior to ball games and meets. Did keep the idea under wraps most of the time. C.B. N2THROS - Nebraska"
