Best trick for curing a common cold?

The main point of this post is Just my Cup of Tea!– I actually AGREE with it!!!!!

Because it was a scientific study on the effect of taking Echinacea pills with random blind testing (not sure if it was double blind– the gold standard in research– but anyhoooo… the results of the study makes sense, not a convoluted far-fetched theory like so many others I’m seeing.

It vividly portrays the most powerful trick for getting better, and the real secret ingredient to almost ALL cold remedies (except the one I recommend) ….THE PLACEBO EFFECT!!!!!

does Echinacea help cure colds?

 

Feel a cold coming on? Try this remedy!f you smell onions in someone’s socks over the next few weeks, do not be alarmed. That person is probably just fighting a cold.

Everyone seems to have a custom ” miracle cure ” for the common cold, and it seems the more creative the solution, the less bashful they are about sharing. A recent poll of Facebook friends revealed the following methods, all of which the practitioners stand by (in their onion-filled socks, in some cases):
Heaps of vitamin CChicken soup, preferably homemade by MomNatural foods, fresh colorful veggies, and supplementsChopping and eating a raw yellow onion (with a little salad dressing for taste) followed by a warm bath or a long shower to open the poresOscillococcinum, which is a homeopathic alternative medicineThieves Essential OilCoating feet with Vicks Vapor Rub and wearing a pair of socks overnightSocks filled with peeled onion layersCardio, a few sips of whiskey, and cold medicineOutdoor activity, hydration, and restSex RELATED: 6 Moves for Slimmer Hips and Thighs
Is the mighty common cold so wimpy that it can be defeated by a rubber ducky, menthol, socks, and a few lit candles? The answer lies in an interesting piece of research by Dr. Bruce Barrett at the University of Wisconsin.

One Response so far.
