I've been taking Echinacea for 20 years now. First introduced to me by my father. I actually remember the first time I took it in college when I was starting to get a cold. Couldn't believe how overnight it knocked the cold out. It is a crime that "regular" doctors across the US don't prescribe this. I use it every time I am feeling a cold or flu come on. It usually knocks it out within 24 hours. I also use it ever time I fly - take it before and after the flight to help make sure I don't get sick from others on the plane. I used to get something 50% of the time on long flights. Now-- nothing. The only downside I've noticed is that if I use it too often, it effect goes down, as if my body gets "used to it."

How soon after feeling like you're getting sick do you start taking echinacea?

Right at the start. As I understand it, Echinacea helps by stimulating your immune system in a general way, and getting it active. It's best to do this right at the first whim of starting to feel sick, because that's when the virus is not widespread and easier to kill. If you catch it early, you can wipe it out before it ever gets going.

When do you start taking it, and for how long after the allergy symptoms subside?
