So having a 50.000iu vitamin tab at hand to take at the first sign of flu will hopefully provide enough vitamin d for your immune control system to function over the next fortnight while you get rid of the bug. However taking 4000iu of vitamin d every day will keep your levels topped up and this may reduce the chances of your getting the bug in the first place.
For the chap with hemmoroids theres a useful article on fibre here http://www.diabetes.ca/Section_About/fibre.asp
and may I suggest porridge oats with some ground linseed for breakfast.
I buy a 5kg bag of natural linseed from the health food store and grind a jarful in the coffee grinder to last all week. A couple of tablespoons of this on my porridge or yoghurt boost my fibre intake. As it's soluble fibre it absorbs a lot of water so you need to drink plenty. It also contains omega3 (or rather the precusors to allow your liver to make omega) and as I may have mentioned omega is an antiinflammatory agent.
