Hey Actor Boss,
This blog post did not make the final cut. I'm moving it over to YouTube along with a few others that aren't quite epic blog post material. Be sure to subscribe for the 2020 launch if you want to learn about all the stuff they forgot to teach you in acting class.
Until the updated video releases, here's the original:

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED
My husband came home one day and said, "I've got to tell you about Super Tonic." One of his coworkers, Sally, was coughing like crazy. Since they work in an office environment, the windows don't open and the ventilation is minimal.
Sally eventually said, "I need to make tonic again."
"Tonic?" my husband asked.
"This tonic was amazing," she said. "I worked in an office like this one for years, and if one of us got sick, we all dropped like flies."
(That sounds like a theatre troupe, eh?)
"Someone found a tonic recipe called Super Tonic. You just take a shot glass-sized swig every night. We made a pact to all do it, and we stopped getting sick."
"So," my husband said to me, "we're gonna try it. The ingredients sound too crazy not to try."
We've been taking it for a few years now, and we have not gotten a fever once while taking it, except the one time I stopped taking it and got a low-grade fever.
I felt achy once after skipping it for a few days, took four small shots in a day, and felt back to normal the next morning. I've still gotten the sniffles and even viral pharyngitis once, but so far I haven't had a fever while taking this tonic. Everyone's body chemistry is different, though.
I'm not a doctor, and I'm not making any guarantees that this will work for you, nor am I giving you medical advice. I'm simply sharing my personal experience so far. You should always talk to your doctor about trying new things, especially if you have a pre-existing condition.
This tonic is made from everyday groceries you may already have in your pantry, so there's nothing extreme or uncommon in this recipe. It was also created by a doctor.
If you're sick before an audition or gig and looking for celebrity-grade cold remedy, then I'll give you the exact tonic recipe I use in this post.
I will warn you that taking a shot is NOT for the faint of heart! It is spicy, but a daily shot is totally WORTH IT for me during cold and flu season. Here's a video of me taking a shot. This is the face I make every single time. I've never gotten used to the taste.
