In seeking the cause or the cure for colds and flu, we have to first try and discover why it is that people who live and eat healthfully hardy ever catch a cold and hardly ever come down with the flu? Is this simply a matter of fate? Do germs and viruses have some strange aversion to healthy people? Or is there a more logical explanation?
There was a time when my family and I contacted a cold at the first sign of Winter. We began a better diet and a change in lifestyle and it seemed to help a good deal of the time.
We all have been brought up to understand that it is germs that control the viruses and as a result the colds we would come down with. The truth of the matter is what we believed is not what really is happening.
Germs are probably more potent today than they were twenty years ago but we can still do the same things today that we did years ago. Such as going out with little clothing or leaving the windows open when the cool air would seem to break your resistance down. Even going as far as being with a room full of people who have colds already and are sneezing up a storm.
So, the big question is why would not we be as soon as catching a cold today as years ago? In a sentence. It is not the germs that that primarily responsible for the colds and flu attacks. The biggest cause is when your lifestyle and diet have had a dramatic effect on compromising your immune system. This breaks your system down and as a result, you end up with having to use 10 boxes of tissues and blow your nose around the clock.
When the immune system is healthy and strong, it will not allow anything into it to bring harm to you. Germs and viruses can no longer gain a solid foothold and what germs there are will be destroyed by a strong immune system.
Unfortunately when our system is weak, the body is loaded with the poisonous toxins and will allow the germs to take over and before you can say Jack Robin, you have a full blown cold or worse a flu.
It amazes me why the medical society refuses to acknowledge colds and the flu are not caused by germs when it is the bodies breaking down the immune system which is the real reason. Rather than teaching people to battle germs and viruses that would do us all a favor to teach us how to live better and healthier.
Of course many including myself realize the money the drug companies would lose is astronomical and the sales of cold and flu medicine fuels the many billies that these pharmaceutical companies could lose.
The best advice you could get or give is to improve your diet and lifestyle. You may never get another cold or the flu ever again.
