Why Cold Remedies Never Works? Learn How to Boost Immune System Instead...
Still jumping from one cold remedies to the next after all these years?
Its that time of the year again when we get bombarded with advertising
for all sorts for cold remedies using over the counter medicines and
products that claim if you take them you will avoid symptoms of colds and flu.
Thousands of people
also line up at their physicians for their annual flu shot. If you step
back and think about this subject rationally you may ask yourself
'why?'. Why do people get colds and the flu and seem to catch whatever
'bug' is going around? What makes winter any different to the rest of
the year? (Other than it is colder!)
If winter was the
cause of colds why do people get colds in the summer time? Thinking
about it further, why do some people never get colds or the flu, even
though they are living in the same environment? Why do some people
always get the same number of colds each year?
I remember one of my secretaries that worked for me for a number of years. She ALWAYS
got 2 colds a year, and she knew she would before the start of each
winter. Not one, not three, just the two. Reliable as clockwork!
Is cold remedies found in the mind?
unknowingly psyche themselves up for a cold each year? Is some of the
problem in the mind? Who knows? Maybe someone does, but for now let's
look at the subject from a common sense angle.
Firstly, I have
difficulty understanding why so many people wait until winter to think
about 'Boost Immune System '. Doesn't it make sense to sustain a high
level of immunity all year round? When you develop symptoms it is too
Sure, the over the counter drugs can help mask your symptoms but at the expense of weakening your immune system further.
Likewise taking some
Echinacea (a type of herb) just prior to winter, although helpful is
still only a band aid approach. What you need to do to boost immune
sytem ALL YEAR.
A true cold remedies story
I'm going to relate
to you a true story about the subject of cold remedies, cold and flu
etc. It is a personal one from experience and one which I hadn't really
thought much about until recently.
Two or three times a year I embark on an around the world trip to visit our
associates/distributors in the US, Europe and Asia and also to do further research.
My last trip was a
couple of months ago in September. Prior to leaving I decided to
increase the life insurance that my company has on me. This is to
ensure that if I get 'run over by a bus' that the Company would have
additional uncommitted funds to replace me with minimal financial
Because of the
amounts involved I had to submit to a full medical examination before
the extra cover would be confirmed. I had all the appropriate tests
carried out and they all came up excellent EXCEPT for the white blood cells.
These were all exceptionally low. White blood cells consist of:
Warned about flying!
Although the insurance was approved, my Doctor was really concerned because
my white cell count was so low. He told me that because of this I will be catching every flu bug that was floating around.
I asked him how if this was the case that I NEVER get a cold, the flu or pick up any bugs? Surely that indicates a strong immune system?
He couldn't answer
this, but he warned me about flying out in the next few days because I
would likely get ill through traveling in the plane because of my "low
immunity". He suggested that I stop taking my Total Balance because he figured that there must be something in that which is causing these low counts.
The records showed
that they had been going down steadily since I started using them. I
didn't take his advice although I did say I would consider suspending
them for two weeks AFTER I got back from my trip.
Needless to say it
got me worried so I started to do some research on white blood cells.
Without going into this too deeply I'll give you the bottom line. White blood levels are an indication of infection in the blood.
When your body is
subject to infection your white blood cells multiply rapidly (within
hours) in order to dispose of the infection.
A low level of white
blood cells indicate low levels of infection in your blood. (no doubt
there are exceptions to this rule if a person is not healthy in all
That made me feel a
bit better because it seemed to me that my low levels indicated that my
immune system was good... but I was not 100% certain.
Results expected...Cold Remedies
On my way out of the country I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Dr Munem who designed Total Balance.
I explained to him what the Doctor had told me and showed him the blood
results which turned out to be exactly as he expected. He explained
that this proves how effective Total Balance is.
The reason why my white blood cell count is so low is because the nutrients in Total Balance are keeping all infection at bay.
This is why I never get colds or catch 'bugs' so I never need cold remedies. He suggested that I suspend taking Total Balance
for two weeks after I got
back from my trip and then have another blood test. He predicted that I
would find that the white blood count will go back to 'normal' as the
Total Balance will not be present to dispose of the day to day
infections encountered in the environment.
Because of some
other commitments I had, this particular trip was much more rushed than
normal. I was only away two weeks and traveled 32,000 miles and had a
couple of periods in which I didn't get to bed for three days.
As you would
appreciate that is a lot of time in the airplane. The air quality in
airplanes since they banned smoking has actually got worse because it
is recirculated. So, there I was for all this time stuck in an aluminum
tube with several hundred other people many of whom coughing and
spluttering and obviously not well.
No sniffles...No Jet Lag...No Cold Remedies Needed
As has been the case
for the last couple of years I did not get jetlag, nor the slightest
sniffle. Prior to a couple of years ago I would usually get a few
sniffles for a day or so after a long haul flight or, perhaps not feel
quite the best, but that
never happens these days.
I always feel great when traveling and when I get home again as well. When I got back as suggested by Dr Munem I stopped taking Total Balance for 2 weeks.
At the same time my
wife and a friend did the same after first having their white blood
cell levels checked. Their white blood cell counts had also steadily
been going down over the previous 12 months, but like me they also
never catch colds or bugs. When our results came back guess what!
All of our white
blood cell counts were back to the normal range. This is exactly what
Dr Munem had predicted. Our white blood cell count will no doubt start
to go down again (which is good) as we have resumed taking the Total
These tests prove that everything is functioning really well and that our
immune systems are really strong.
Our white blood cells are very responsive
and 'standing by' in case they are needed to battle something
extraordinary. It is a good feeling when you know your immune system is
in top condition.
It takes away the fear of being 'stuck' somewhere with a lot of unhealthy
people or worse getting caught up in some form of biological terrorism.
So, what's the bottom line for Cold Remedies?
1. It's not natural to get colds, flu's and catch bugs!
2. You won't have these problems if your body is healthy and your immune system strong.
3. Cold remedies such as over the counter medicines don't strengthen
your immunity, they just mask the symptoms and weaken your immunity
What about a good multivitamin/mineral tablet?
Will that build up immunity? Unfortunately No! More than just simple cold remedies your body needs so much more than just a basic supply of vitamin and minerals.
The experience that
I have just shared with you about Total Balance does not apply to a
'normal' health supplement. You must have a very wide spectrum of
nutrients and more importantly you have to have an effective 'delivery'
system which is lacking in 99% of general commercial supplements.
In that regard you can't get better than Total Balance as a general health and immunity tonic.
