If I got a cold that went into my chest, I would be hacking up a lung for several months. Doctor prescribed athsma inhalers but they never seemed to get far enough into my lungs or stay there long enough to help. I went on a 72 hour fast for purposes of prayer, and a happy side-benefit was that I became unable to catch a viral infection for love or money. Actually, I was mystified by colds that would start to settle in, scratchy sore throat, etc, then mysteriously disappear 4 hours later. I didn't make the connection until several years later, reading a science digest article that showed research on the immune-restoring effects of a 72 hour total fast. I drink hot water with a splash of lemon to de-stink my breath when fasting, but that's it . The effect lasted about 5 years the first time, and I just repeat whenever it seems to wear off.
