Health Tips

Cold Remedies

If you catch a cold, you can expect to be sick for one to  two weeks. But that doesn't mean you have to be miserable. These remedies may help:

Water
You can't flush a cold out of your system, but drinking plenty of water can help.

Salt water
A saltwater gargle - 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt dissolved in a 250mL glass of warm water - can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat.

Saline nasal drops and sprays
Over-the-counter saline nasal drops and sprays combat stuffiness and congestion.

Humidity
Cold viruses thrive in dry conditions - another reason why colds are common in winter.

Unlike blood vessels which transport blood, however, the lymphatic vessels do not have a pump to shunt the lymph along but rely on the action of muscle movement to move the fluid along and valves that prevent the fluid from moving backwards.

Scientific Breakthrough – Silver Could Be the Answer to the Common Cold

Promising new research on the use of silver has emerged which may provide a potential cure for the common cold.

The discovery was made by a team at the University of Ghent in Belgium. Professor Willy Verstraete, a microbiologist, discovered a method of attaching nanoparticles of silver to harmless bacteria called Lactobacillus fermentum. This bacteria, often found in probiotic yoghurts, when grown in a solution of silver ions, then excretes tiny particles of silver which stud the outside of the cells. Read More
