to Get Rid of a Cold in 2 Easy Steps"
by Frederic Patenaude
Everyone wants to know what's the best
way to get rid of a cold, and it seems
everybody has her own remedy for it.
In this article, you will learn how
to eliminate a nasty cold the PURE HEALTH
way, which is Nature's Way.
I probably won't be very popular for
saying this, but the truth is that “there
is no cure for the common cold.”
That's right. Even modern medicine is
aware of this.
All of the remedies sold, at the drugstore
or from your health food store, only
alleviate the symptoms of a problem
that shouldn't be stopped in the first
Let Your Body Heal
Here's a little known truth: all attempts
to “cure” the common cold
are completely futile, since the cold
isn't something that should be fought
or stopped in the first place. The common
cold is a *symptom* that the body is
undergoing a healing crisis. The body
is trying to get well!
Whether you can “catch”
a cold is another subject of controversy,
but without even going into that, only
the body's own powers are able to take
this healing crisis to a favorable conclusion.
The common cold is believed to be viral
in nature, and there is no treatment
that directly fights the virus. In fact,
there are hundreds of those viruses,
with new ones being discovered all the
The more you interfere in the process,
either by taking a drug or making some
sort of herbal concoction, the more
you add on to the body's stress of dealing
with the situation. You might be able
to get rid of the symptoms, but the
root problem is still there. Is that
what you want?
Instead, get rid of a cold the Pure
Health Way, in 2 easy steps:
Sleep It Off
The main problem people have when they
get a cold is that it interferes with
their already busy life. How are you
supposed to work if you feel like crap?
So you take drugs or even just herbal
medicines to alleviate the symptoms,
and you continue working like crazing,
staying up late, going out, eating out,
and *never giving your body the chance
When you get a cold, you should do this
opposite. Think to yourself, “Great!
A cold! That's my opportunity to catch
up on the rest I desperately need, and
my chance to let my body heal itself!”
What you'll need to do is start spending
long hours in bed. Rest as much as possible.
Cancel those appointments that are not
urgent, those nights out, and other
activities. Stop your exercise program
for a few days, and rest as much as
If that's not possible, at least take
it really easy, and go to bed super-early.
Give your body a chance to heal and
it will do an amazing job at it, I promise.
95% of people I've met still think that
there's some kind of food they should
eat that could “increase their
immunity” or “boost their
metabolism” and help them “fight”
the cold better.
They still haven't realized that *the
common cold isn't something that should
be fought or stopped!*
Here is however a few recommendations
that will definitely help you recover
from a cold in the shortest time possible.
- Eat only fruits and vegetables. Those
are the easiest foods to digest. Avoid
protein foods or fat, or starch.
- Drink plenty of warm water.
- Eat a very simple diet. Smoothies,
fresh juices, raw fruits in vegetables.
No cooked foods except at the most,
- Eat according to hunger and if not
hungry skip a few meals. There's no
harm and only good in doing that.
Eating a simple raw food diet (such
as the one I described in my book “The
Raw Secrets”) when you have
a cold will help you recover in the
shortest time possible, without doing
any harm to the body. A short fast is
also advisable (2-3 days max).
Combine that with plenty of rest, and
you'll have a winning formula to getting
rid of that nasty cold.
By learning proper nutrition habits,
you'll also make sure that you stay
healthy all the time and never have
to go through that again!
