This winter if you catch a cold – don’t panic. Can you remember what it was like to simply have a head cold before COVID came into existence?
No one wants to get sick, but we’ve been programmed to worry it’s COVID if we simply catch a cold.
Calm down and get a hold of this if you catch a cold this winter, and never forget that once upon a time, head colds were common and we survived them just fine.
Don’t Panic – Just Prepare
Here are some basic supplements that I recommend you keep in your medicine cabinet to use at the first sign of catching a cold.
I, actually, take these supplements 3 or 4 times a week throughout the winter months:
- vitamin C, not from corn
- vitamin D3
- NAC (N-acetyl cysteine)
- Quercetin with Bromelain
- a quality multivitamin
Like I said, I take these supplements regularly, but I definitely take them at the first sign of a cold or the flu.
At the FIRST SIGN of catching a cold or the flu, I personally start taking a Swedish homeopathic remedy called Alpha CF.
I keep several bottles of Alpha CF in my medicine cabinet because they typically disappear as friends and family ask me “do you have any Alpha Cs? I need some ASAP because I think I’m catching a cold.” If you start taking this soon enough, you’ll run off a cold and brag about never catching one.
Saline Nasal Flush
No matter where you live on this beautiful blue planet, the change of seasons typically brings itchy eyes, a scratchy throat, and a stuffy nose. You can chase these symptoms away by doing a daily morning saline flush.
An effective way to remove the cold virus from your sinus cavities is to snuff salt water up each nostril several times a day when you catch a cold, and flush your eyes with a mild saline solution.
Mix 1 TEASPOON sea salt in 1-cup warm water. Dissolve, and sniff into one nostril at a time. This can be compared to taking a dunk in the ocean waves. It will result in a flushing of the nose, and may drain into the throat to also remove toxins at the back of the mouth.
It is safe to flush your eyes with this solution to cleanse the eye, and is no different than swimming in the ocean and getting salt water in your eyes. This helps with constant dry-eye, too.
Do this as often as needed to remove a cold virus from getting in your sinuses.
Before you catch a cold, keep all of these supplements in your medicine cabinet, and don’t hesitate to start using them as soon as you feel a “historic” cold coming on.
