World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

Cider Remedy for Cold and Flu with hidden Warm & Steamy ingredient

S

See if you can find the hidden ingredient that I recommend in this  recipe for an apple cider remedy for colds! Kind of like Where’s Waldo, let’s call it “Where’s the Warm & Steamy?”

Probably the only important ingredient in the recipe that actually affects your cold virus.

But the other ingredients  are so strong that they may just overpower your suffering. Do they really kill off the virus?  It’s possible they may help some by just revving up your mucous production with their walloping strong flavors, and therefore help stimulate your immune system to flush out the virus.

Or perhaps they numb your throat sensations with their burn-off-your-taste-buds recipe (only things missing are Serrano hot peppers and turpentine!). Even if it doesn’t cure your cold you can use it in a zingy chow mein recipe, for sure!

Here is a great natural formula—with a spicy, zesty, delicious flavor#—that offers relief from cold and flu symptoms, and is an effective natural antibiotic.

Several healing ingredients make this tasty formula one that you can drink at the first sign of a cold or flu to help open up your sinuses and bronchial passages. You can also gargle with it for relief from sore throats. We plan to print this out and keep it handy all fall and winter long; when the sniffles hit, this will help! Here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS (Try to use organic if at all possible)

25 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons dried or 3 tablespoons fresh Echinacea root, grated or chopped
1/3 cup fresh horseradish root, grated
1/4 cup fresh gingerroot, peeled and sliced
1 large white onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
Honey to sweeten, if desired
Raw apple cider vinegar, 1 quart or less

1. Place all dry ingredients in a 1-quart wide mouth jar. Fill to the top with vinegar. Cover the top of the jar with plastic wrap, then screw on the lid.

2. Refrigerate for six weeks so the flavor can develop and soften. Shake daily. There’s no need to strain and bottle it unless you want to. The flavor keeps getting better and bolder the longer the formula is allowed to steep.

3. At the first sign of a cold or flu, take 2 tablespoons of this formula with a warm water chaser. Rinse mouth out well after swallowing the cider. Repeat once or twice daily for the duration of the illness. You should feel your sinus and bronchial passages quickly open and your breathing become easier.

4. For a sore throat, gargle with the formula for 60 seconds, spit, then rinse out your mouth. You should feel immediate relief.

Makes about 1 quart.

 Hospital announces beginnning of RSV season

recorder@portervillerecorder.com

Sierra View District has had two cases of respiratory syncytial virus in the past couple of weeks and Tuesday officially announced the beginning of the RSV season at the hospital.
RSV is a common virus that causes cold symptoms in adults and children. It is more commonly referred to as the flu.

Though most healthy adults and children will experience nothing more than an infection resembling a common cold, infants and kids with pre-existing medical conditions can experience severe and potentially life-threatening complications from RSV.

Though there is no known cure for viruses like the common cold and RSV, over-the-counter medicines are proven to be temporarily effective in suppressing symptoms.

RSV is spread through contact, much like the common cold. An infected person sneezing or coughing can spread the virus through the air, and RSV can also survive for several hours on surfaces like a desktop, doorknob or telephone.

During the season, visiting children under age 13 will not be permitted on any of the hospital’s inpatient units — except for the Distinct Part Skilled Nursing Facility — until further notice. Children requiring hospitalization will continue their normal course of care. The restriction on visitors under 13 will be in effect for the duration of the RSV season, which can last through the winter until early spring, depending on the number of RSV cases seen.

The most effective way to prevent RSV is through continual and thorough hand washing.

Always wash with soap and water or disinfect with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer before touching a baby. Also, remember to routinely clean household surfaces to keep them as germ-free as possible. If possible, try to avoid crowded places like malls and movie theaters, where the virus can quickly spread from person to person. When experiencing cold-like symptoms, always use a tissue when coughing or sneezing, immediately dispose of it properly, then wash hands thoroughly to prevent spreading the virus.

79. American College of Emergency Physicians Guide to Cold and Flu

REPOST from Press Release by the American College of Emergency Physicians, THE primary institution for ER physicians

They are one of the main group of physicians with the most experience on the front lines of the zombie apocalypse of patients coming in with common colds,  along with  to Family Practice and Pediatricians. The advice is good, except for the missing HEAT factor, which is not commonly realized amongst ER physicians, In fact, they think it was disproven, but I say it was NOT. 

Warm still matters.

“It’s hard to escape the common cold or the flu,” said Dr. Andrew Sama, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. “It can be even more difficult telling their symptoms apart at times.”
