The myth about colds...

Feb 4th, 2009
It has come to my attention that many people misunderstand what a cold is and how to treat one!!

I have been reading another of my sites and to my amazement, people were angry at their doctors for not prescribing anti-biotics for a cold or flu!  This made me realize that the knowledge I assumed was common is in fact something that needs to be shared:

A cold is a virus, so there is nothing the doctor can give you. Antibiotics kill bacteria, you don’t have bacteria, you have a virus. Believe me, doctors prescribe too often, so it there were something they could legitimately give you, they would. They get kickbacks.

The only thing that works for me with a cold (and I have been cold-free now for 12 years) is the day you feel it coming on, take 1000mg of vitamin C immediately and then 500mg every hour until bed. The next day, you’ll feel fine, but take 1000mg three times that day as well to help…then just a 1000mg each day for a few days. Vitamin C naturally and safely protects your white blood cells, so they become a fierce army against the virus.

The body can only absorb so much vitamin C, so you can’t OD on it. I don’t take any on a regular basis, only when I need it, and it works every time!!

Enjoy :)
