Summary: Use large amounts of echinacea as soon as possible at the onset. Use high or very high dose Vitamin
C. Perform The
Water Cure. Do Nasal
Washes as necessary. Use fresh colloidal silver as eyedrops and
to rinse mouth. Put 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in ears.
Echinacea should be used in high dose, like 10g, as soon as possible at the
onset followed by 3g at least three times per day. Once the symptoms of an
acute viral infection like this appear, the virus is producing an enzyme which
allows it to invade additional cells more easily. Even if the virus is
stopped, once the cells are destroyed it can still take days to recover from the
damage. Echinacea stops the damage by deactivating the enzyme, which is
why it is so important to take it immediately at the first sign of a cold. Vitamin
C in high dose will also help prevent the damage from the enzyme plus fight
the virus. The
Water Cure is used to fully hydrate the body to make fighting the virus and
removing its debris much easier.
| The most common means of infection is not from sneezing or coughing, or walking barefoot in the rain, but from hand-to-hand contact. That is why washing your hands frequently when you have a cold is so important.
To use Vitamin
C in sufficient dose, it is best to start with a whole teaspoon (4 to 5g)
followed with a gram or two every waking hour afterward until symptoms subside.
Other supplements in the Antiviral General regimen will speed results. For colds, a good type of vitamin C to use is Alacer Emergen-C, which is packets of vitamin C and minerals plus some vitamins. Packets can be easily carried around for use during the day. Emergen-C contains a good bit of vitamin B12, so should NOT be taken in the evening, although this pick-me-up may be welcome during the day when suffering cold symptoms.
Silver is a good thing to have around in case a cold strikes. It can
be taken in high dose. Always mix in water for best results. But, it is most helpful during a cold used
as an agent to disinfect the nose and eyes. Put in a nasal spray bottle if
available and keep the nasal passages moist with it. This can also be done
with a dropper but it is much more effective to reach the nasal passages if it
is misted and inhaled. Put a few drops in each eye, too, but for this
purpose, it must be fresh and made to the highest standards (no salt or other
contaminants, using only distilled water which is heated to at least close to
boiling, and with perfectly hygienic methods of bottling and dispensing).
To disinfect the ears, a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide are added to an ear.
Let sit against the eardrum for a few minutes, ideally 10 or until bubbling
stops. Drain and
repeat for other ear.
If there is still any nasal or lung congestion after a few hours of this
regimen, consider using an ephedra supplement like Enzymatic
Therapy SinuCheck at half or less recommended dosage or as needed up to
recommended dosage. Use only until symptoms are
controlled. Do not use ephedra products long term.
A classic naturopathic remedy for colds is to crush a medium clove of garlic
with a similar sized piece of ginger (shave or crush), add the juice of one
lemon, and mix in warm water to disperse. Drink three cups per day until
the cold is gone. This is a good treatment for virtually all viral or bacterial illness.
Add thyme (1t of dried leaf 3x day) to this concoction (or take separately) to speed effects
or if congestion is severe. Honey can be added to taste, and this usually
improves the effects on colds, too. This is one of the best cold
remedies of all time, but many will not use it due to the hassle involved, and
the taste. The taste is, surprisingly, not too bad, especially when honey
is added, since the ginger and lemon take the edge off the garlic.
|Hydrogen peroxide in the ears for the flu and colds?
Although it would appear to contradict what we are taught about the flu and colds, many people have tried hydrogen peroxyde in the ears with great success. Hydrogen peroxide works quite well and is supposed to be effective about 4 times out of 5, especially if done when the symptoms first appear.
In 1928 Dr. Richard Simmons hypothesized that colds and flu virus enter our bodies through the ear canal. It was Dr. Simmons' hypothesis that, contrary to what we have been taught, we usually can catch the two via the ear canal and not through the eyes or nose or mouth as most of us believe. Dr. Simmons' findings were dismissed by the medical community.
|According to Dr. Simmons, keeping your fingers out of our ears will greatly reduce our chances of catching colds and the flu, but we need to keep in mind that these 2 are microscopic and can be air-born and may land on/in our ears. Once these microscopic bodies have entered the inner-ear, they then begin to breed, and from there they have access to every avenue throughout our bodies to travel, and infect and make us sick.
Remarkable results can be achieved in curing colds and the flu within 12-14 hours when we administer a few drops of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) into each ear. The H2O2 starts working within 2-3 minutes in killing the cold or flu. There will be some bubbling and in some cases mild stinging might occur. I do this myself and I can assure you that it is not painful in any way. It tickles more than anything.
Wait until the bubbling subsides - usually a few minutes - then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear.
Although this practice is perfectly safe for infants and children to use, the loud bubbling and stinging may frighten them, and they will need someone they trust to put the hydrogen peroxide in their ears. DO NOT get hydrogen peroxide in the eyes - if you do, flush with water.
