    I think, we have to note, that there is a quality in some people that doesn't allow them to dwell on petty ailments, so that they will go through some condition without even recognizing it as a problem while a different person might report this as being sick.

      I had unknown cause hepatitis weeks ago -spinach were involved- but my liver got back on track and my kidney wasn't in stress for long (I couldn't deal with loosing it, really). Sometimes if I eat vegetables and fiber my colon just stops moving and that ends up in a nasty situation, I just cut the veggie part and try my best to stay clean.

      Everybody around here is going down to some virus or the other (air conditioning, terrible heat outside, and heavens not yielding a drop of rain no matter what) but I've been clean of it. Some soreness which lasts an hour or two and no GI symptoms.

      That's cool for a lady on immune suppressant drugs uh? I've been antibiotic free for a long time now and plan to stay like this as long as I can.

        I have not missed a day of work in the last 5 years (eating paleo/primal for the last 2 years) which I think is pretty amazing since I teach and have ample opportunity to catch something. The best part is that my seasonal allergies have completely disappeared in the last 2 years.

          I'm hardly ever ill, physically, and haven't had so much as a cold for three years, so I can't honestly say that being Paleo has made much of a difference. I do feel healthier though. Mentally, it's a different story, and I've been on anti-depressants for some years. I'm almost fully weaned off them though now, and feeling great. (Paleo since May)

            In February, but I'm pretty sure it's because I slept on a couch where a sick person had been sitting/sleeping a few days before. It was one of those "go to bed feeling fine, wake up with a ridiculously sore throat" things. I generally have a pretty good immune system -- though I try not to tempt fate. Sharing utensils/dishes/food with someone who's sick will probably make me sick, but just being around sick people I'm usually fine.
            Also, I'm pretty sure I'm naturally immune to strep throat, which is kind of awesome. My sister had it probably a dozen times growing up, I've had roommates who've had it, and never gotten it.

              I had a mild cold for like 5 days at the beginning of the month, before that I can't remember. I don't really get ill.

                Last week. It has to be the crowded, festering public bus lines I have to take to work every day. It sucks... I try to be careful to wash my hands, but usually I snag something once a year to the tune of at least a small cold. My brother did come back from Europe and got sick a few weeks ago. That could have very well been what I caught, which I suppose is unavoidable.

                  In the past 3 years, since I started taking mega doses of Vit D, the only time I've gotten sick was when I lowered the dose per Dr's. orders. Figures :P

                    Everyone I know is always getting sick. I haven't been sick in almost 2 years. I was feeling a bit under the weather earlier this year and took some time off work to make sure I didn't actually get sick. Now, I have all this sick-leave...

                      Ugh... I have a cold. It's not a bad cold. It's just a cold. This is pretty much as bad as it gets for me.

                      I was talking to some friends a couple of hours ago, and one of my friends has this bet with me that I can't get to my goal weight within 18 months (errm I've got 16.7kg to lose, so 18 months is AMPLE) anyways, she's convinced I'll be sickly and thin at this weight (LOL I have been there before and no one ever accused me of being skinny, but I digress) so she said she'd make sure I go to a doctor to confirm I'm healthy, and she asked me who my doctor is. I said "no one" and she sort of gaped at me a bit. I'm like "well... errm... I've never had any reason to go to one!" and I guess she was sort of shocked/horrified that at the ripe old age of 39 I'd never needed to see a doctor!

                      But all that being said... my goal is to get so healthy that I just don't GET these stupid colds (I probably wouldn't except I've got kids who are around other kids and who bring god knows what home with them...). That is all.

                        Look, I'll be honest with you here, people with winning attitudes don't get sick.

                        If you're gonna go around worrying about germs, then you'll get sick, because the germs are in your head, man!

                        Me? When was the last time I gave a thought to germs? Never, as far as I know they don't even exist.

                        You gotta put your body out there to do battle, and if you're not doing battle then you're gonna get sick because you're in a defensive position.

                          Dado - sorry but I so disagree with you. I am a really positive person, with an extremely winning attitude, but I was so getting sick all the time. Ended up in hospital a number of times...... and I stayed positive through out the whole thing, however the doctors were not making me better, so I did my own research and after a very long and involved journey - ended up doing the primal thing. I cannot believe how unwell I was....but now am really well with the same positive winning attitude.
                          anyway not actually being negetive here, just disagreeing

                            Errrm I am the sort of person who worries about germs... not at all. I laugh like crazy at those ads on TV for antibacterial things that "kill99.9% of germs!!" and I would never dream of sterilising everything in sight. I think it's stupid and shortsighted. I'm the only parent in my kids' class who wouldn't let her kids use that awful hand sanitizer stuff, because I think that its normal for kids to carry around a few germs and it actually strengthens their immune systems. (I'm not saying neglect normal hygiene... but regular soap and water is sufficient, you know).

                            But yes, even I succumb to the humble cold on occasion .

                              yea whatever

                              what you need to take away is that a positive mental attitude goes a long way toward defeating disease.

                              now you're telling me you're a positive person, yea, you might think you are, but you're not, not if you're going to the hospital like that.

                              you have to be honest with YOURSELF, this is the first step.

                                Wow I so don't agree with you, Dado, in fact I can almost feel the negetive vibes that you are sending.
                                Yes a positive mental attitude can help with all sorts of mental, physical and spiritual issues, but its not going to always DEFEAT disease - in my opinion.
                                I hate to think how sick I would have been if I had been negetive throughout my illnesses.
                                Sometimes people just get sick. No rhyme, no reason....however they fight it with all sorts of tools including a positive attitude. Sometimes they get better, sometimes they don't !
