Common cold, respiratory disease and flu are viral infections of the respiratory tract. Cold viruses are always present in the environment. More than 150 viruses can cause a common cold and respiratory diseases. The rhinovirus is the most common culprit, and it's highly contagious.
Children are at greatest risk of frequent colds because they haven't yet developed resistance to most of the viruses that cause them. You are more likely to catch common cold, flu and respiratory diseases, if you are excessively fatigued, have emotional distress, or have allergies with nose and throat symptoms. Other causes are a weakened immune system, hypothermia or cold feet.
A cold virus enters the body through your mouth, eyes or nose. The virus can spread through droplets in the air when someone who is sick coughs, sneezes or talks. But it also spreads by hand-to-hand contact with someone who has a cold or by sharing contaminated objects, such as utensils, towels, toys or telephones. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth after such contact or exposure, you're likely to catch a cold.
The Symptoms of a common cold usually appear about one to three days after exposure to a cold-causing virus and may include a runny or stuffy nose, the discharge from your nose may become thick and yellow or green, cough, watery eyes, sneezing, body aches, headache, fever, fatigue, congestion, cold feet, earache and itchy or sore throat.
In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of common cold, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, the immune system and strengthening the body's circulation. It cleans, de-acidifies the body, is mineralizing and leads to a balanced life energy. The body will be purified and the dissolved metabolic waste, acids and toxins are excreted through the intestines, urinary tract, lungs and skin.
Common cold can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Mineral deficiency and acidification in turn weaken the immune system. Also a defective metabolism favors respiratory disease, acidification and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution.
Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat common cold.
Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.
First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment and prevention of common cold offered in this guide:
Homeopathy was developed about 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.
It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of common cold.
The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.
What happens if you choose the wrong remedy? Nothing - just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.
The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.
Schuessler salts (also named homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, Biochemistry) for the treatment and prevention of common cold
In the 19th century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback.
