Boost you immune system before a cave diving trip

 February 1999, during one of my visit to cave country in north Florida, as I was assisting cave courses, since I was working toward my Cave Instructor rating. I felt catching a cold...

Georges Gawinowski 1998

Coming from France where I was used to dive on air, after hours and days of diving I start feeling week and tired Air diving was not the best options for theses dives but it was cheaper than Nitrox...

I run into an IANTD Nitrox diver magazine that was left at cave excursions. (feb 99 April 99). Tom Mount was talking about Antioxidants: Alpha Lipoic Acid. At the time IANTD used to sell Antioxidants vitamine for  divers! I was sold, bought a case and started to take a pill a day. Was it a placebo, was it real? but after few days I felt better and kept diving on air...

Today, between Covid, water quality (humain and chemicals pollution)... I still protect myself with plants specially ones that will boots my immune system before an intense week of teaching cave diving. 

"Promoters of Echinacea say that the herb encourages the immune system and reduces many of the symptoms of colds, flu and some other illnesses, infections, and conditions".
