The sickness


Recommended Posts

If you feel it coming on, I recommend 4 beers and 5 glasses of scotch tonight. Ask DaveyBoy. We perfected the potion back in the mid-90's.

Drink that shit away!

The key is to gargle with the scotch before downing it, particularly if it's one of those illnesses that starts in the throat.

The Vegas---> Shoreline run right before the hiatus proved that one for me– in a van/hotel rooms with 3 very sickies for about 12 days, the two of us using the gargle Glenlivet approach never got sick at all.

Interesting, that might be what the doctored ordered, will it work in an ice-fishing hut?

I can confirm that it will work in an ice fishing hut as I was ice fishing last week on Lake Simcoe - although I substituted scotch for Wiser's Reserve (43%), beer and grain alcohol (XXX Rez special), but the result was the same. I was feeling a lot better within a hour, and it went rather well with a belly full of fresh perch. :thumbup:

nope....it means exactly what he described above - if people around me are sick and I know there is little or no chance of escaping it I'll take one a day for a few days...and I don't get sick.

Or say I feel that first hint of "hmmm" could I be getting sick, but you're not sure, well same thing, take it for a few days and that first hint of a symptom doesn't ever amount to much or never was anything...eitherway I'm happy.

If I am already sick, I take it and gives me the energy as if I'm not sick while the sickness is still running its course.

...and not in the good way either, LS

After a quick google search:

How is COLD-fX® different from other ginseng products?

3. How is COLD-fX different from other ginseng products? Most ginseng products on the market are Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng). COLD-fX is a highly purified extract derived from North American ginseng (Panax

quinquefolius) which has a very different chemical and biological profile than Asian ginseng. Because COLD-fX is comprised of specific active viral-targeted, immune-enhancing molecules, polysaccharides, it doesn't exhibit the other effects typically associated with ginseng products such as enhanced vitality, mental alertness and mood improvements. In addition, although COLD-fX is an extract of North American ginseng, its highly purified and precise chemical composition makes comparison with "ginseng" in general, inappropriate. Comparing COLD-fX with raw ginseng roots is like comparing acetylsalicylic acid (the active ingredient in Aspirin) with willow tree bark (the source material of acetylsalicylic acid)

Personally I think I'll stick to the Boozer's approach

You old balls might be on to something. Feeling the sickness coming on Wednesday, I decided to try out your method. 6 tallboys, half bottle of gargled scotch and some fridget temp ice fishing seemed to suppress the sickness.

It may have been the vitamins/ginseng/echinecea tea i was ingesting also but we will never know exactly what it was.

Cheers men.
