TKO for colds
Are you dreading ‘sneezing season’?
The average adult has 2-3 colds/year and up to 5 coughs/year. This number rises for children who suffer up to 12 colds/year! Children’s immune systems are not fully developed until they are about 8yrs old. Hence they can be more susceptible at a younger age.
Having a cold is sometimes seen as an inevitability of the cold weather, central heating and return to work/school after the summer holidays. However, it can be miserable for parents taking care of their children or suffering themselves!
So how do some people never seem to get a cough or a cold? What is their secret?
4 Tips to help with colds:
Here are some tips to boost your immune system and speed up recovery time:
– Get as much rest as possible! This allows your body time to heal. Children are very good at this – they just crash and sleep!
– Fluids are important to keep all the mucous membranes working correctly. Warm drinks, soups, juices, water etc.
– High dose Vitamin C, Zinc and Echinacea taken together for 2-3 days at the start of a cold, can vastly speed up recovery time. Vitamin D and B6 are also a good idea here.
– Fruits and vegetables not only contain over 75% water but have vital nutrients to aid the body to heal. Smoothies, soups or even fruit-juice lollies (sore throat) are all a good way to ‘hide’ these for fussy eaters!
