I once had the opportunity to ask a doctor that worked in the emergency department of a large hospital how he kept himself from catching a cold, flu, etc and he said he washed his hands very frequently and never, ever touched his face and that regimen worked for him.

I am very rarely ill from a cold or flu. I get the flu shot every year. I do however, live in Edmonton and during the winter the air is cold and dry leading to sinus issues. Since we have to fly anywhere to cruise, the dryness of the aircraft and the location where we stay pre cruise can have effects that will come out later. On our last cruise these cleared up quickly because of the sea air and warmer climate. As it has been noted, carpets often are causes of sinus or allergy irritations, these bother my sinuses and tend to cause an occasional cough or sneeze. I am not ill, just reacting to a temporary environmental situation. I also, as instructed by my nurse daughter in law that had washing and keeping clean helps a lot. We are dealing with two baby granddaughters and the rules are firm. Frequent hand washing and sanitization are the norm now.

If I can move I do. But one thing I always do is take a little extra vitamin c everyday.

That is completely untrue!
