World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

Wilbur Sargunaraj from India discovers Cold Virus truth in Scotland

Click for his fun video

Despite Wilbur Sargunaraj’s  dressing in a lab coat, I don’t THINK he is a doctor.

Something about his wearing sunglasses IN the lab, his catchy Bollywood preface to the video, and Saragunaraj’s other Youtube videos of bagpipe playing, Bollywood bhangra dancing, and official music video of The Cricket Song etc just don’t fit the serious academic researcher persona.

Nevertheless, we can learn SOMEthing here, as Wilbur interviews  Doctor Christie in a microbiology lab in Scotland. She proudly relates that penicillin was first discovered in Scotland by Sir Ian Fleming, so the Scots are quite proud of their bacteriology history, having launched the field themselves.

The doctor then demonstrates Antibiotics versus Bacteria versus Viruses… and Wilbur’s slow uptake on which confirms that he has never taken a microbiology class… including a cool multi-colored jelly agar dishes that grow bacteria.  Then Dr. Christie points out disks of antibiotics, some of which kill off the bacteria growing around it, some of which don’t, because “bacteria gets accustomed to it” Wilbur surmises.

So “we should treat antibiotics with deep respect” Wilbur concludes, and bottom line not use it for colds.The most important thing I learned from this video is its note that, in India, mothers’ favorite cold remedy is antibiotics!

The doctor does start out saying you DON’T catch colds from cold weather — yes, technically correct, but a blanket statement (pun intended) that would be more accurate if it included an allowance that the cold weather makes your cold worse. And In chilly Scotland, they should know that better than anyone.

What to do for colds, then? Wilbur asks?  The bacteriologist advises to “just take care of yourself, rest and drink tea with ginger and honey…there is no cure for the common cold.”

Hmmm…sounds warm & steamy to me!

Question: Can dogs catch a cold?

“Can dogs catch a cold?”

Answer: Yes! I wrote on this in November, and  here’s a good article from PetMD on dogs catching colds

The thing is, there are many other  reasons besides a common cold virus that a dog would have similar symptoms to a common cold, coughing (distemper or kennel cough) worms, fungal parasites, allergies and other infections.

Just as in humans the cold is one of many viruses that cause similar symptoms, coughing, runny nose, sneezing

But unlike in humans the cold viruses that your dog gets are NOT contagious to you, or “cross-species” or at least not that scientisits have discovered.

<<There are other highly contagious, cold-like illnesses to be familiar with, as well. The influenza virus, parainfluenza virus, adenovirus, and tuberculosis are all illnesses that can be transmitted by infected dogs.

Another potentially life-endangering viral illness is canine distemper. A dog exhibiting symptoms of distemper will usually have coughing, vomiting, high fever, and a thick discharge from the eyes and nose.>>

Another article about dogs getting colds, agrees with this information and adds tips on how to help your dog get better.

The first and second tip are…Warm & Steamy methods!…

<< Helping Your Dog Recover
1. Increasing Fluid Intake
If your dog has common cold, the simplest way to get rid of it is by feeding him/her lots of nutritious liquids. Chicken broth, for instance will work wonders for your dog too.Steam Therapy
2. Try to get your dog to inhale steaming water which will unclog the sinuses. Bring over a tub of hot water, and gently lead the dog to inhale the vapors. Be careful not to allow the dog to go too close to the steaming water.

So there you go. Yes they can, no you won’t catch it from each other, and, if it is a mere common cold, the way to get better is the same as for us, Warm & Steamy methods

119. Quantum cure from extraterrestrials (part 2)

Not surprisingly, there is the usual misunderstanding of quantum entanglement as somehow affecting large, macro-level objects that woo-meisters of many stripes routinely demonstrate. None of this is particularly surprising. It is, however, rather amusing. Or it would be, if these charlatans didn’t apparently charge a fair amount of money for their PAK™s.

In fact, there’s seemingly nothing that QuantumMAN™ can’t do! Apparently, you can vaccinate yourself against malaria, influenza, and even the common cold! You can even protect your children from becoming addicted to meth by downloading some ZAG goodness into them, or, failing that, cure them (or yourself) of meth addiction.. If you have an infection, you can treat it with a quantum antibiotic, and if you’re in pain, you can take Zaxis™, which promises 24 hour pain control. Why only 24 hours if quantum medicine is so much more awesome than regular medicine? Who knows? Then, of course, there are a wide variety of ZAG products designed to help you lose weight because, well, you know, all that dieting and exercising is just so “chemical” compared to the quantum goodness at the heart of QuantumMAN™. You can even undergo a form of “quantum gastric bypass surgery” by reprogramming your brain, if you want. Even more amazingly, if you’re a female going through menopause, you can provide yourself with quantum hormone replacement therapy.

And, of course, if all else fails, there’s always Quantum Doctor (QDr™) or Quantum Chiropractor (QChiro™), while you can also detoxify. Quantumly, of course:
