World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

20. “Dr. Mom’s” advice: good but where is the HEAT?

Today’s post from Sacramento Bee “Dr. Mom” columnist.–

I like her very intelligent and wise writing style, EXCEPT, like virtually all the other current online advice, it is still based on the current medical establishment’s recommendations kids with coldsthat EXCLUDE the key factor we recommend in treating common cold viruses–

Where is the HEAT?

Her prediction is that most colds will last 7-10 days! For kids, and their parents that’s a long time to suffer unnecessarily.

<<During the first week of illness, it can be a bit frustrating for both parents and children because there’s no easy fix>>

But using warm & steamy methods, Dr. Bob’s patients get dramatically better in 1-2 days. Which do you prefer? Do nothing and have a cold for a week, or aggressively treat yourself with warmth and steam and get better in 1-2 days.

“Dr. Mom’s ” primary advice is:

1. lots fluids, such as water (no  mention of WARM fluids),

2. cool mist humidifier (why not WARM mist humidifier?).

Warm liquids and Chicken soup are also included, further down the list, but mentioned only as being “soothing for a sore throat.” and it “thins out mucous.” We believe they are more than just soothing,  They actually help your immune system fight off the virus much faster.
