Common Cold Info

The term 'common cold' refers to a viral infection in the upper respiratory tract. It affects primarily the nose, where symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some symptoms lasting up to three weeks. Over 200 viruses are implicated in the cause of the common cold; with rhinoviruses being the most common. Rhinovirus literally means virus of the nose.

The common cold primarily affects the nose, the throat (pharyngitis), and the sinuses (sinusitis), occasionally involving either or both eyes (conjunctivitis.) Symptoms are mostly due to the body's immune response to the infection rather than to tissue destruction by the viruses themselves. The primary method of prevention is by hand washing with some evidence to support the effectiveness of wearing face masks.

No cure for the common cold exists, but the symptoms can be treated. It is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with the average adult contracting two to three colds a year and the average child contracting between six and twelve. These infections have been with humanity since antiquity.

There are natural health remedies that may help alleviate the symptoms of the common cold. These mainly work by boosting and assisting existing immune function. Vitamin C, echinacea and propolis are beneficial in this.

Product Reviews

  • Manuka Honey the best product for many ailments.

    star- web-tec.info

    I have been taking one Manuka Honey lozenge every evening for a few years, and have proved, by medical examination, that the Manuka Honey has considerably improved and maintained my health greatly.
    I have proven, by photos, all the things that have been treated be Manuka Honey, and I think many people have underestimated the real benefits of Manuka Honey.
    Just thought you should know of my success, and I will continue to purchase Manuka Honey lozenges from you until my death.
    Thank you being there for me.

  • Keeps my colds/flus away

    If I feel like a cold coming on, I take the echinacea 3 times a day. I have tried other echinacea liquids and in tablet form, but they haven't worked as good as Weleda.

  • Great product

    star- web-tec.info

    Coughed for 6 months. Throat became raw and scarred. I wanted to repair, not to subdue symptoms. Googled and saw this
    Used it 2 times for 2 days and repair was tremendous. Was able to eat without coughing badly.
    Don't mind the taste at all. A bit like Swedish Bitters. Love the swivelling nozzle!!!! Will always have this handy now. Travels in my handbag. Small and portable.
