Okay . . . so today let's talk about how "I" treat a "common cold" . . .
First up . . . I totally agree with conventional medicine that we need "rest" and "fluids" . . .
But . . . I don't agree with the synthetic "antibiotics" part.
You see . . . conventional "antibiotics" ONLY kill certain "bacteria" . . . they DO NOT KILL VIRUSES.
But . . . what they do KILL is the body's "GOOD BACTERIA" and this is one of the reasons our health is in the condition it is today!
What we really need . . . is an natural "antiviral" to KILL the "common cold" viruses
You see . . . as I stated the other day . . . if our "immune system" is "weak" and "struggling" . . . and we come in contact with ANY virus . . . we're in trouble
And the first 3 or 4 days are crucial
Why you ask???
Well . . . that would be due to it taking that long for the body to develop "antibodies" to fight these germs.
Now . . . with the "cold" viruses being a lesser grade of virus . . . our "immune system" can normally take care of it and fight it off . . . even before our "antibodies" are made and needed.
But . . . if we constantly are catching "colds" . . . or get a "cold" that "won't" run its course . . . this is a clear indicator that the "immune system" is "struggling to keep up.
Okay . . . so the other day I said . . . we are "more" likely to get the "common cold" than the "flu" . . . so why is that???
Well . . . as we now know . . . when we get a "cold" . . . the body makes "antibodies" against that virus . . . so if we come in contact with that "same" virus again . . . the "antibodies" remind the body how to fight it off. Problem solved.
BUT . . . there are "more" than 200 different "cold" viruses out there . . . and the chances of us getting the same one . . . in the same "cold" season . . . well . . . it's pretty slim.
Therefore . . . every time we come in contact with a different virus . . . our body has to make new "antibodies" for THAT virus.
And this is why we seem to get a lot of "colds".
So keeping the body's "immune system" in tip-top condition is the key to the "common cold".
Okay . . . so here's what "I" use to combat . . . a "cold"
As I stated earlier . . . "rest" and drinking lots of "water" is a must . . .
Well . . . when we get a "cold" . . . the body "depletes" liquids like "CRAZY" . . . which is why we feel "dehydrated" . . .
And drinking lot's of "water" and/or "coconut water" is an ideal "cold-fighting" cocktail.
You see . . . "coconut water" is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, calcium, and zinc . . . which are all needed to fight these "common viruses".
Consuming "organic extra virgin cold-pressed coconut oil" is also an excellent remedy.
Taking a teaspoon of "Coconut oil" is very soothing to the throat due to lubricating the mucous membranes. And it can help to alleviate many other symptoms, which can shorten the duration of the "cold".
To help clear "sinus" passages . . . rubbing coconut oil with a few drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essential oils on the chest . . . works like a champ.
And I've spoken many time before about "Oil Pulling" . . . this is a great way to "reduce" the sinus infection caused by a build up in the nasal passage.
So why does "coconut oil" work so well???
Well . . . this is due to it being an excellent all-natural "antibacterial and "ANTIVIRAL" . . . that doesn't KILL our "good bacteria"
Which makes it a perfect oil to deep cleanse the body of the "common cold".
And tomorrow we'll finish this topic with how I get rid of the "flu"
