World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

179. A Time for Every Purpose…

For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.

One of my high purposes this year is helping you get over your common cold.

But its not my highest purpose. Admittedly I have some even higher ones–my family relationships, my personal physical and spiritual health, my previous work commitments. Good priorities all, but they took more  time than I expected this past year, which left less time for my common cold crusade.

But I’m thankful for all the good that happened, both personal and in common cold progress. Looking back, the past two years in my work to end needless suffering from the common cold. I can see I’m just getting started (hopefully soon to write the book), but also appreciative at a huge amount I’ve done and learned, to lay the groundwork setting up this business.

One trial project was my hiring of an assistant. She was great, but despite enjoying the work, she unexpectedly quit for personal reasons …and now is the new mother of a beautiful baby son! I believe that is wonderful progress, but just not what I was expecting!

The world has changed a lot in the past 30 years since I graduated from college, where I was still typing on the very noisy electric typewriter (waking my roommates up at 3 a.m. writing the all-night articles and essays.

And now I’m learning to do Google Hangouts…

which brings me to the happy spot where I believe I am now caught up with the cutting edge of the social media (and really hoping I don’t have to learn any more… except maybe Pinterest… and Instagram…and Prezi.. and… oh nevermind) that I’ve been striving to catch hold of.

But today is the first day in a long time that I am enjoying the delicious, delightful feeling of getting caught up, organized, at peace with my progress.

In other words, I’m following my own REAP advice… having caught up on
–REST slept in a lot lately
–EAT a satisfying Rainbow of plants…mostly vegan but also some fish and yogurt to make sure I’m getting all I need. and very slowly seem to be dropping weight. Yippee!
–ACTIVATE my body with Enjoyable Exercise… just went jogging thursday and waltz dancing for 5 hours last night, Which is my favorite natural high, to be delightfully exhausted from whirling, music and lots of hugs from my dancing friends.
–PURPOSE focusing my life forward on my spiritual journey, relationships (lots of family time this year) and work (continuing my job with international students and my social dance class) and now back to my Common Cold Crusade.

So I’m TRUSTING that putting it on “pause” for a few months while I developed those higher priorities, will in the long run pay off for myself, and for the world.

As I say, you must TRUST in God/the universe/your higher power, (however you choose to believe) that as we follow the right, most important priorities in life, God makes everything beautiful in its time.

And no, I didn’t make that up, nor did The Byrds rock band “Turn, Turn, Turn” in the 1965, but it was penned about 3,000 years ago by old King Solomon ( Ecclesiastes 3, Old Testament of the Bible).

It was the perfect word at the perfect time, back then, in the King’s palace in 907 B.C., on rock music vinyl records in 1965 and on my blog from Santa Cruz at 4 p.m. on this beautiful Saturday afternoon as well.

Peace be to you, too, as you REAP a healthy, happy life.

Your Common Cold questions needed!

Your Common cold questions needed!

Dearest common cold fans,

Saving the globe, one common cold at a time

Peggy The Doctor’s Wife Saving the Earth, one common cold at a time

As mentioned in my previous two posts. I’m trying to buckle down and

really focus on getting my book out that …

So I need your help. Please email/post/send me your questions and issues about the common cold.

  • Does it impact your health? your work? your family?
  • What remedies do you already use that work or don’t work or not sure?
  • What do you see other people doing that doesn’t work

If I use your quote in my book I’m happy to send you a free copy when it is published.

And beyond colds —

  • how about your immune system building habits?
    What do you do to strengthen your body to fight off colds?
    Are there any of the four Pillars of Health that you have a hard time with?

I need to know!
I want to know!
And other cold sufferers want to know too. My goal is to give the world’s best advice and YOU are part of this world too. You just might have a tip or method that helps you and that can help someone else as

well. So send your common cold questions right over!

Wacky, extreme, mild, all stories are good (although I probably won’t agree with all and will say so) Fill out the attached form below.

Philosophically, how do you see colds as part of our inescapable human condition. Do colds teach us something about life? about ourselves, about the universe and our purpose in life?

Tell me your thoughts on this in the form here>>>.

Many thanks for helping make our Earth a more healthy place to live!

Peggy’s Summertime Personal News

So what exactly prevented me from blogging these past 4 months you ask?

A lot of online coaching and a large serving of LIFE happened to me since my last time here. Mostly good–VERY good, in fact–… and a lot of it in line with my personal 4 Pillars of Health…especially in the PURPOSE department…I’m overFLOWING with purpose, I assure you!
I hosted a Friendship City delegation from Uganda, which I am still following through on. (its REALLY cool to email with the mayor of a city in Africa!!) and yes, they get colds in Uganda too, even on the equator. (but they also have snowcapped mountains year round, so DO check out our awesome video

Our oldest son Nelson graduated from college (heading to grad school in computer science at Carnegie Mellon silicon valley branch: Congrats son!

Our youngest son crashed my car, (3 days of car shopping, just to realize that I can trade cars with our middle son and HE can spend the time car shopping instead…although it may cut down on his video-gaming time…)

My grandson had a birthday and I spent a magical day taking him to movie/ice cream/candy shopping…mahhhvelous!)

I visited Colorado for my international student work conference and three old friends from childhood/college/and Bob’s medical residency. I’m preparing for my trip next week to Japan & Korea (will research cold remedies among other events)

And meanwhile collecting daily doses of common cold news…yes there are many, many remedies being tested and some maybe will help inhibit cold viruses…maybe…

…but NOPE, none have been conclusively found to cure or stop the cold altogether.

But be assured with billions of $$ at stake pharmaceuticals will never, ever stop trying (especially with YOUR money just waiting to jump into their cash registers every winter).

(pssst…Meanwhile, try our warm & steamy methods for FREE!)

Also collecting a LOT more Pillars of Health advice for you…and working on strengthening all Four of my own immune system Pillars with healthier , somewhat vegan diet, LOTS of exercise, especially dancing, spiritual purpose, tons of sleep, and throw in a little Shakespeare Santa Cruz watching with my Rotary club…all in all a rather productive summertime, I’d say.

for your Productive Summer
