I'm probably going to regret writing this post, sod's law being what it is and all that, but here goes.
Back in September 2013, I posted about homemade elderberry cough syrup. We all got colds a week or so after housemate's son went back to school, and as a result, all took liberal doses of syrup.
Since then, none of us have had a cold. I do wonder if this is coincidental, but also wonder if elderberry syrup really is the magic elixir as while housemate's son hasn't had a cold since, his mother and grandmother (who didn't get any syrup) with whom he spends most of his time, have.
Either way, I'm not taking any chances and at the first sign of a sniffle, I'll take some. You watch - now I've written these thoughts down, I'll probably get a horrible cold!
Until next time. x
