How it works
When you start to feel like you're coming down with a cold, take 6 wellness formula capsules every 3 hours. You can find it at most health food stores in NYC, Wholefoods, and online via Amazon. If you start this regimen in time, you can avoid the cold altogether. If you start taking Wellness Formula after you're already sick, it could make the difference between functioning and bed-ridden. (It does for me, anyway.) It should at very least shorten the number of days that you spend feeling sick.
What you'll need
I first found out about Wellness Formula around 5 years ago, when I was struggling with a cold and couldn't find coverage for my waitressing shift. I was desperate for something to make me feel less shitty, more functional, and less gross (nobody wants their food served by someone with a runny nose), so I stopped at the local health food store and asked the guy manning the vitamin and supplement section what I could take. Without hesitation he pointed me to Wellness Formula, and it has been my go-to ever since. If I’m sick, it makes the difference between me needing to stay in bed all day and me feeling decent enough to be productive. If I’m getting sick and start taking it at first signs of onset, I can sometimes avoid the cold altogether.
