  1. I felt a cold coming on and drank a Kroger brand essence-c without even thinking about it. I'm on day 13. I didn't have the box (with the list of ingredients), just the packet, so I didn't even think about sugar or fructose until I had swallowed it all. Tasted sweet and started freaking out immediately. Looked online, and sure enough, fructose is the first ingredient. ugh. Do I have to start over?? So bummed, I've done everything by the book. The even dumber thing is that I ate an orange right before I drank it, I didn't even need the stupid thing.
  2. Last night I started having to clear my throat a lot and it started to hurt. Then a cough came on and made it there anything I can get for relief?? I already tried a throat coat hot tea and it didn't help as much as I wanted.
  3. I have been rocking a cold for a couple days and I have been wanting to heal myself through Whole30 approved ways, and my friend told me about Olive leaf extract and Collidal Silver. Are these Whole30 approved and would you recommend the tinctures or the pill-caps?

    Elderberry syrup

    I woke up on day 3 with what feels like the start of a cold. Can I take my usual Gaia Elderberry syrup? I would normally take another supplement called Gaia Quick Defense which has elderberry extract in it as well as Echinacea. Any feedback would be great!
  5. I am on day 14 and I am cold. I started feeling cold around day 10. Here's some thoughts on this situation A) I have never really been cold before...I'm have always been more likely to be hot all the time than to be cold, B ) I know I am not supposed to weigh myself through the process but on Day 10 curiosity got the best of me and I am/was down 6.4lbs is that enough weight loss to lose body heat? C) I live in SD and I realize that it has been VERY cold lately but I have had to layer more than I even have before. Yesterday I bought cuddle duds and wool blend socks. The classroom I work in says it's 72degrees, I am wearing cuddle dud leggings, jeans, a cami, cuddle dud shirt, a long sleeved shirt, wool blend socks and Bear Paw boots and I am still quite cold. Anyone else experiencing (or has experienced) body temperature dysregulation? I mean if this is what being a smaller weight means than I will try to learn to adjust but I am curious if this is typical or if I am unique! Haha!
  6. So I am on day 30 (yay!) but I think I have bronchitis after a bad cold last week. Anyway, I'm feeling pretty achey and blegh coughing all day and night, getting not very much sleep. Would it be better to wait to do reintroductions when I am over this bug and can really watch how my body is feeling without the added side effects of my cold and whatever medicine I am taking? Right now I am taking a steroid (prednisone) and something to help get rid of mucus.
  7. I'm on day 26. My husband and I have been diligent in all things Whole30 (even during Halloween and so many gatherings). On Day 2 on I got a head cold but limited myself to tea, rest and some meds that contained no added sugar (super hard!). On Day 11, I came down with the classic flu but, again, avoided non-compliant meds. Now I'm in my last few days and I've had some sinus congestion/allergies for the last 3 days. I'm worried that my reintroduction will be meaningless because I don't know what my healthy body feels like over these 30 days. Should I just end it?
  8. Hi, All Logically, my immune system should be humming perfectly on Whole30 (Day 18 now). But both my teenager and I caught a wicked bug that's been going around. I'm confused because I haven't been sick in about 5 years (been Primal for 4). As soon as I start Whole30 I get wholloped - what's going on? Bad luck? Super bad bug strain? Or does my immune system take a dip during Whole30 before it gets better (just like the rest of the body needs to adjust to the new diet)? Thoughts? Thanks! Amy
  9. Go figure, I have a cold. It was pretty bad yesterday (day 2) and I kept waking up in the middle of the night to cough my heart out. My whole life I usually get a cold in the springtime, but this one is especially hard because I cannot just go and cook up a can of Chicken Noodle Soup. Today's email let me know that it is common to get sick in the first week, but that does not make life any easier. Does anyone have any advice during this time? What kind of cold remedies worked for you (Whole 30 approved)? Thank you!

    Oncoming cold.....

    I have an oncoming chest cold. I typically will take zinc lozenges. EVERY ONE I looked at (even sugar-free) has non-compliant "inactive ingredients" Any suggestions. It is staring to creep into my chest. I am scared to take anything! Whole 30 Day 12. Emergen - C also has non-compliant ingredients.

    Zucchini Soup - Hot or Cold

    I've made this Grant Achatz zucchini soup three times, and had to visit it one more time to verify it's Whole30/Paleo appropriate... and it is! Just replace the butter with clarified butter or ghee. I'm so excited to use the last of my farmers' market zucchini on this recipe one last time. I love it hot, even in the summer, but every once in a while, cold hits the spot. I keep the batch in the fridge and portion it out so I can decide whether I want it hot or cold. I hope you enjoy it!
  12. I have just finished day 26 of Whole 30. Unfortunately, I have a cold. I typically turn to Nyquill to help with the symptoms and to get good sleep. However, it is loaded with sugar and alcohol which are not W30 compliant. I typically use throat drops to help with the scratchy throat and coughing. They also have a lot of sugar. Anyone have suggestions to on what to use instead? I don't want to go off W30 this close to the end. Thanks.
  13. Today I am at the end of day 22, and feel like I am losing the battle with my 2nd cold this Whole30. Before January of this year, I had not gotten sick at all for the two years I have been gluten/free. Anytime I started getting sick I would take Wellness Formula for a few days and the cold would go away. Last week I got a terrible sore throat, and then a cold. By the weekend I was better, but on Tuesday I got another cold. Well then I noticed that Wellness Formula contains SOY! It isn't in the ingredients, but is listed as "Contains soy." Big bummer. I didn't take anything because all the zinc lozenges I have have sugar in it. I am squeezing lemon a few glasses of water each day to get some vitamin C. Also, I am eating at least one mandarin a day. Anyway, 4 days later this cold is moving to my lungs. I have found myself taking Mucinex daily otherwise I wouldn't be able to work. I have bronchitis now, and am constantly blowing my poor nose. I am going to the acupuncturist tomorrow, although all her herbs have sugar in them, the acupuncture itself should support my immune system. As far as the food and sleep is concerned, I am following Whole30 very well. I intend to do this as long as I can. Has anyone else had recurring colds during their Whole30? Until today, I still had the energy to do homework, cook, clean, and run errands when I got home from work. I do work 45-50 hours a week. Tonight, after cooking dinner I barely had the energy to brush my teeth and crawl into bed. How do you handle colds on your Whole30?
