Cold season is now in full force and this silent sickness seems to be lurking around every corner.
During the holiday season when all your friends and family get together from around the country, who knows what germs they’re bringing with them?
While prevention is the most important factor in determining whether or not you come down with a cold, sometimes it just can’t be avoided.
The next most important measure to take is to stop the cold as soon possible.
The moment you start to see symptoms, runny nose, cough, sore throat etc. … there’s one simple action you can take to combat this invader and potentially cut down a weeks-long cold into just a day.
Here’s what to do:
As soon as you feel yourself coming down with a cold, grab a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
Available at almost every drugstore in its iconic brown bottle, hydrogen peroxide costs less than a dollar but can save you weeks’ worth of misery and sickness.
All you need to do is dump a capful of hydrogen peroxide into each ear, one at a time, and let it sit there for 5-10 minutes.
If you feel and hear a fizzing noise, don’t be alarmed; this means its working!
Hydrogen peroxide kills microorganisms by oxidizing them, which can be best described as a controlled burning process, and ultimately taking out the infection.
This little-known remedy has actually been around for a long time.
In 1928, Richard Simmons, M.D. found that some colds and flu viruses enter your body through your ear canal, instead of your nose or throat.
Then in 1938, German researchers saw incredible results as well using hydrogen peroxide for treating colds and the flu.
But their data has been ignored in the mainstream since hydrogen peroxide isn’t the money maker for doctors and pharmaceutical companies that prescription medications are.
However, the results people claim to have from using hydrogen peroxide to combat colds are nothing short of remarkable.
Remember, you need to use this remedy as soon as you see cold symptoms starting for this to be effective.
Have you ever used hydrogen peroxide to stop a cold before?
