Starting to have colds
October 1, 2012 6:59pm CST
This is one of my health weaknesses catching colds easily due to sudden change in weather. It was too hot outside but too cold inside the office.However, I could not stay inside the office due to my work's nature. I need to go outside and check for the production. Furthermore, at night, it was really hot and suddenly starts to rain early morning. Now, my nose seems to clog and my throat starts to become itchy and feeling that I will have colds in the next few days. Now I am drinking lots of water and some pineapple juice to prevent colds getting worse. Prevention is still better than cure so take care mylotters.

You will find that if you take astragalus every day this will build up your immunity. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine for many ailments. I take 500-1000mg a day. I have not had a cold in 7 years. I also take other herbs and supplements for general health. Here is a good link for natural cold remedies and cures for many other common problems. The hydrogen peroxide works very well - within minutes. I have used it and several friends have tried it with remarkable results. www.earthclinic.com/CURES/colds.html I hope you find this helpful. Colds are no fun and being sick is not good as it weakens your system every time you get sick. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Astragalus is a plant that, in studies, has proven to have a significant age-reversal effect in the immune system, in that it led to declines in the percentage of senescent cytotoxic T cells and natural killer cells after 6-12 months of use. It's an all natural herbal remedy. But before taking any vitamins/supplements one should always research. Good health to you and thanks for commenting. I appreciate it.
