Natural Cold Remedies

Last year we sent you a blog about natural cold remedies.  We want to improve your health by repeating this valuable information.  Cold season is upon us!  Well, it might not feel like cold season living in Southern California, but people are catching colds again this winter.  We don't know when a cold will strike, but it's best for your health to know which natural cold agents can be used to fight your symptoms.  We want you to be prepared.

1. Zinc has been known to have anti-viral properties.  While Zinc cannot prevent a cold, this mineral does possess properties which are known to prevent the formation of certain proteins that viruses use to reproduce themselves.  Zinc should be taken within the first 24 hours of your symptoms.
2. Vitamin C.  Once your symptoms appear, 2000mg/day is recommended.  Too much Vitamin C can cause diarrhea or an upset stomach.  Lypo-C is a highly concentrated Vitamin with minimal sugar and can be taken straight out of the packet or diluted with water.  This product is "nanized" to bypass digestion.
3.  Chicken Soup or Miso Soup.  There is something about chicken soup which makes us feel fetter.  Properties in chicken soup have some inflammation  properties.  Miso soup might also help in reducing inflammation and releasing toxins.
4.  Tea remedy.  Steep some herbal tea with a teaspoon of honey, a small shot of whisky, and a squeeze of lemon.  This formula may ease your congestion, soothe your throat, and help you to sleep.  Don't drink too much because alcohol will suppress your immune system.  Gasoven (formerly stomach complex) has enzymes, green tea and ginger to make an excellent stomach tea.
5.  Steam.  Inhaling steam often helps with congestion.  Whether a humidifier or sitting in a steaming bathroom, breathing in steam can help relieve congestion in your nasal passages.
6.  Neti Pot.  Nasal irrigation helps clear the nasal passages.  Warm water mixed with a saline solution can assist in relief from sinus pressure, facial pain, and other sinus symptoms.
7.  Water.  Drinking plenty of water helps you to flush your body of toxins and keeps you hydrated, even when that cold suppresses your appetite.  We have an excellent product that neutralizes free radicals, alkalizes, and is far more potent that an ionizer machine.  This product is very inexpensive when compared to an ionizing machine.
8.  Rest.  Nothing is better for the body than sleep.  It allows the body to restore itself and fight off infection.  Melatonin, which helps you sleep, is very important in curing a cold.
