Cold and Flu

Cold and Flu

Cold and Flu occur more frequently in the fall and winter months for a variety of reasons. The most common cold virus thrives in drier, less humid air. This also can lead to drying of the nasal passages which further increases one’s risk for a viral infection. Being cooped up indoors for longer periods of time also increases the risk of catching the cold and flu viruses. Here's some common sense steps to shield ourselves from cold and flu.
- Do not sit in a draft. Always have proper clothing for the cold weather.
- Wash your hands more often in fall and winter month.
- If you see you might be catching cold; buy Echinacea herbal extract(comes in soft gel tablets) from the health food store and have a few tablets with your meal according the label. This herb will build up your immune system and will stimulate your body's own defense.
- If you catch a cold, the best recipe is the good old chicken soup. Your mom's recipe is the best. Just add a little more salt than usual if you are allowed to have salt. Freshly squeezed lemon juice added when you are having the soup will supply you with the needed Vitamin C.
- Rest
-If you caught a cold and did not take care of yourself; it will turn into flu. You know you have a flu when you run a temperature. That means you have infection somewhere in your body. For Flu the infection is mostly in your lungs and chest. I first try to cure myself with salt and hot to warm water. I gargle few times a day with this solution. (Add salt as much as you can tolerate) Also you can put this solution in your nose and flush your nose with it(this is very hard to do for beginners therefore you can use a neti pot).
-We would like to build our body to resist all diseases with mom's remedies; but if you did not get any better, you can try the over the counter drugs for flu.
- Last resort: consult your Doctor.


Build a healing energy around you

During the course of the day leave some time to yourself. Visualize yourself for 5 to 10 minutes relaxing on a tropical beach. The sun and the surf surround you, and your body feels strong and healthy. With each inhalation, feel healing energy entering the body, and with each exhalation allow sickness, pain and stress to be washed away… Visual imagery is one of the techniques used in the field of Mind/Body Medicine to assist people in staying healthy, decreasing pain and reducing stress.

Always think positive and surround yourself with positive people.

ABC signs of a healthy person!

When my parents used to go to the Doctor; the doctor would look at them and take their heart beat from their pulse, and he knew what was wrong with them. I think the doctor mostly would deduce his findings from their physical presence. The following are some of the attributes of a healthy person. You can find the reasons and cures for all these items in this blog now or in the future.

BMI Calculator

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It measures the ratio of one's body weight to their height. It also tries to give an idea of the amount of body fat a person has. Two people can have the same BMI but different levels of body fat(because Muscle weighs more than fat). A high percentage of body fat increases the chances of heart disease, Type II diabetes, and cancers. *******************************************
