As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I’m happy to report this post will help in either scenario.

To Prevent the Common Cold:

  1. Take Cold-Pro 2 Caps at the first sign that you might get a cold unless contraindicated
  2. Wash your hands after each visit to a public area
  3. For sore throat, take Zinc lozenges as soon as possible (they should be astringent to have any effect)
  4. Increase your Vitamin C intake if you’ve had contact with other people who have the cold (3 x 1 g or more – ask your physician if taking more than 2 g/day)
  5. Keep the air in your home moist by using a humidifier or drying moist kitchen towels
  6. Don’t smoke

What to do if you already have a Cold?

  1. Continue taking ColdPro 2 x 2 caps unless contraindicated
  2. Continue taking Vitamin C as needed
  3. If your sinuses are plugged, try a nasal irrigator pot to rinse out the sinuses
  4. For laryngitis, sinus, and chest colds do a head steam bath with chamomile tea

If you have a fever over 39°C (or any fever more than 3 days), are immunocompromised or have any other serious health conditions consult your physician before taking any supplement!
