Detox Cold Caused By Zinc?

1 post in this topic

I started taking Zinc supplements about 4 weeks ago (50 mg Now Brand Zinc Picolinate).

Yesterday I started a Cold (sneezing, very stuffy/constant runny nose, stuffy head feeling). This is weird because this is the first time I've gotten a Cold since I was a kid. I'm 30 now. Is there some sort of detox effect going on?

On the plus side, Zinc (in addition to a healthier lifestyle) is helping immensely with the acne! I went from many huge hormonal cysts to clear (just have scars left).

I'm also taking 2,000 iu of D3 since I never get any Sun working my overnight shift IT job. I also started drinking lots of tea (Rooibos, Green, Herbal)...and eating a healthier diet...and quit smoking & drinking lots of soda. Come to think of it, I don't know how I went over 20 years without getting a Cold or flu considering my previous unhealthy lifestyle.

I'm pretty sure it's the Zinc affecting me though...I implemented the other changes months ago and the Zinc is the most recent addition. Am I detoxing? What can I do about it? I'm sipping on lots of Spearmint tea with honey right now.
