The Truth: About Common Cold

Posted on August 4, 2010. Filed under: Articles on Health | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

If you catch a cold every time you meet someone with a cold, does NOT make a cold contagious.

Contrary to what most people believe, the truth is that a Cold is NOT contagious. In laboratory experiments, mucus was passed from the nose of an “infected” individual to the nose of healthy ones, and it was found that they could not intentionally transmit the cold.

The truth is a Common Cold is caused mainly by exposure to two types of viruses, Rhinoviruses and Coronaviruses. These viruses are present in the surroundings everywhere, all the time. If the virus is present everywhere, all the time, how come everybody does not have a cold? How come the virus chooses to attack only you or a few?

The real cause of a Cold is the toxic condition of the body brought about by wrong eating habits such as excessive intake of dairy, starch, carbohydrates, junk food, acid-forming foods, lack of sleep, fatigue and allergic disorders of the nose and throat which weaken the immune system, the duration of the cold will depend on the amount of poisons accumulated in the body and the rapidity with which they are expelled.

A cold is nature’s simplest way of expelling toxic waste from the human system.

Most people are also unaware that there is still NO Allopathic cure for  a common cold, because there are more than 200 subtypes of the virus, and it is difficult to tell one type from the other and develop a medicine for each one.

Over-the-counter cold and cough medications sold to adults and children will only kill the symptoms but not the virus. Decongestants and pain relievers offer some symptom relief, but they won’t prevent a cold or shorten its duration, and most have side effects if used for more than a few days.

Prevention is the ONLY way to avoid a common cold. Once attacked, there’s nothing much you can do about it, except rest and wait for it to go. A Cold can be altogether prevented by proper rest, a vitamin-rich diet and Yoga.

Although home remedies like Ginger honey lemon, chicken soup, tomato tea and a boost of Vitamin C may help you recover a little faster,  in the long run if you want to keep these virus at bay,

prevention is your only cure!!
