How To Recover Quickly From A Cold

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases estimates about a billion colds suffered per year in the USA. These figures represent a large number of people with the sniffles every year, but having a cold can at least be made more bearable. If you’ve got the sniffles, follow these tips.

How Do You Know You Have A Cold?

Colds usually take a long time to make their presence felt. At first, you may get tired easily, then start sneezing, coughing, and wiping off a runny nose. Fevers are not common to people with colds, and if they do have a fever, it’s usually a degree or two above normal. Resting at home is much recommended for people who suffer from colds, especially children and teenagers. If you are a smoker and/or drinker, stay away from cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol whenever you could until you’re feeling better.

What Vitamins Should A Cold Sufferer Take?

Not all vitamins are recommended by doctors when curing colds or helping you stay healthy. There are several types of Vitamin C that provide protection, shielding you from colds in the process. The aforementioned Ester-C contains Vitamin C metabolites that make it more effective, and it can work in the immune system for as long as a day. Ascorbic acid, the most popular Vitamin C supplement, can be tough on your tummy, but Ester-C is ph Balanced to protect your stomach from getting upset. Vitamin E also comes in different varieties. A lot of the above information on Ester-C applies to its close relative, Ester-E. As a result, this patented vitamin becomes even more effective and powerful.

What You Need To Eat

The old saying that you need to starve a cold is an old wives’ tale, say doctors. What you would really need to do is to maintain a balanced diet while suffering from a cold. Eating a lot of soup and salad makes sense, as these foods are easier to digest when you’re sick. You will need to drink plenty of fluids when you’ve got a cold, particularly juice and water. These help loosen the phlegm and mucus congesting your chest area. If your cold comes with a fever, fluids can help rehydrate you.

Getting Rid Of The Cold

Of course you will need to take some medicine, so consult first with your doctor so you can make the best choice. If you have a fever, you will need an analgesic to help your temperature go down, or if you also have a cough, an antitussive can help loosen the phlegm. Relieve a sore throat with a little warm water and salt – gargling is a temporary remedy if you do not have the strength to visit the drug store yet.

Cold Symptoms and How to Deal With Them Effectively

Cold symptoms are typically located in your upper respiratory tract. They generally don’t come with a fever, except a very mild one. Your energy is normally retained, even if you are fed up with your symptoms.

So the typical cold symptoms may include a runny nose, sneezing, a stuffed up feeling (in your head, nose or sinuses), a bit of a headache, restlessness, watering or sore eyes, a blocked nose, a sore throat and a cough.

All these symptoms are located in your head and haven’t travelled down into your lungs. They are also local to that area of your body, rather than being systemic, as a fever would indicate.

A fever is the body’s way of getting rid of a virus, and as long as you are strong enough to withstand one, should never be suppressed with drugs. So you can tell that cold symptoms that occur without a fever, means a mild dose.

Discharges are the body’s way of getting rid of the debris of a fever. They may be inconvenient, but they indicate a healthy dealing with the condition.

A common cold is not, on its own, a good enough reason to take any drastic action, such as suppressive drugs.

But regular colds do indicate that your immune system is low. And that should worry you enough to do something about it.

There are several ways you can build up your immune system, at no extra cost to you.

Eat well. By well, I mean lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. And try to make half raw. Be adventurous. Don’t stick to standard, boring recipes. Try exotic and delicious ones which include masses of raw fruit and vegetables.

Get out into the sun. The sun is vital to your overall health and most people don’t get anywhere near enough exposure to the sun. Just don’t spend hours in the midday sun in summer, unless you’re used to it.

Get plenty of exercise. Do something you love. Preferably in the open and fresh air. If your preferred exercise can only occur at weekends, then do something more mild during the week. But keep it up on a regular basis, even if it’s only for a few minutes.

Having looked at ways to improve your health at no cost, lets look at a couple of inexpensive ways you can send those cold symptoms packing. Incidentally if you do this, you’ll become immune to other viruses and pathogens, not just the common cold.

Get yourself a couple of good, whole food supplements which will top up any deficiencies in your diet. One of the best for all your nutritional needs is blue green algae. And the best vitamin C supplement is acerola cherry or camu camu.

These supplements are plant based and are not processed in any way other than to dry them. This means they remain nutrient dense and in balance – just what your body needs. These supplements are the most easily absorbed and utilised and you can’t overdose on them, as you can with the more common synthetic supplements.

Then buy yourself a homeopathic home prescribing kit which focuses on winter ailments. Homeopathic medicines are wonderful for treating any problem. The key is to learn how to work out which medicine might be the best one for you and your cold symptoms.

For that, a home study course, a book or a regular ezine or magazine may help you to gain a deeper understanding.
