Elderberry extract kicks ass. I have been taking 2 tsp. every four hours and everything has leveled out. Slight sore throat, body aches, low fever and a pretty major headache that really throbs when I stand up. I am tired too. But, no snot or cold-like symptoms. NOTHING like the last flu I had when I did nothing but lay on the couch for 3 days.
I am going to try to stop overthinking this (a tall order!) and just be happy it is clearing out. But if this is swine flu, I put it at 4 on a scale of 10 for severity. The fact I can type on my computer with a mild case of flu speaks for itself.
