Monday Morning Health Tip – Natural Cold Relief and Prevention

Natural Cold Relief and Prevention

Did you know that it’s a myth that cold weather causes colds?  Viruses — coupled with a lowered immune response — cause colds.  certain bacteria may also spawn infections that produce cold-like symptoms.

However, cold weather isn’t completely off the hook.  Most cold-causing viruses survive better with low humidity, which occurs most often during winter months.  Also, cold temperatures can dry nasal membranes, making them more vulnerable to infection.

But, just because the temperature has dropped, doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to get sick.  Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life has developed a list of all-natural ways to help you ward off the common cold and shorten its duration.

  • Embrace exercise
  • Stop stress
  • Savour sleep
  • Have some hot peppers
  • Get some green tea
  • Get jazzed about ginger
  • Check out chicken soup
  • Veer toward vitamins
  • Commit to chiropractic care

The chiropractic lifestyle protects and builds the immune system, which is fundamental to ward off colds.  The foundation of this lifestyle centers on making choices that focus on preventative health — from adequate nutrition and sleep to regular chiropractic visits. Dr. Barbara Smith
