World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

175. What are main factors that cause us to get colds? part 1

What are the main factors causing us to get colds?

October 25, 2013–

As we feel the cold weather snap into place, our vulnerability to colds jumps way up.

After a hectic but wonderful past six months of my hosting Ugandan delegates, and being hosted in Colorado, Japan, Korea, New York and now back home in Santa Cruz, including two family weddings in the past 2 weeks, I’m freshly experienced with many of the factors giving us our annual a big spike in common cold virus infections at this time of year.

First off, the popular, but WRONG, theory being widely reported is that the main reason we get more colds in this colder season is that we are being closely packed next other people who may have colds, and thus spreading the virus more through personal contact.

While it IS true we spread colds more when we are closer together, I declare that it is NOT the main reason we get more colds in fall and winter.

Even though increase in population proximity is the most popular theory to explain the huge spike in colds at this time of year, it is wrong. It is NOT the most important factor.

It is the temperature drop that causes cold viruses to grow much faster.

Cooler Temperature of the air you breath is THE critical conducive factor for common cold viruses to grow at maximum rate.

The good news is that this is easily mitigated! (see the rest of my blog and upcoming book) The majority of cold suffering can EASILY be eliminated if you follow my easy, safe and effective advice…. which is in line with cold remedies used for centuries in MOST traditional cultures around the world– because it works!

But aside from that, the rest of the misinformation about how colds are spread makes a big difference in combating it, too.

The main way we spread colds  is NOT as most are reporting, mainly by touching items that are infected by other cold-bearers’ touches, but mainly by breathing, coughing and passing the cold virus through the micro-droplets of moisture in normal breathing. And virus spread is accelerated even more so by coughing and sneezing.

Therefore the best way to combat it is NOT wiping down every surface with disinfectant, but “capturing the virus” as you breathe, cough and sneeze.

But really, the cold temperature is a MUCH bigger factor.
