COLDS

This subject and subsequent dietary considerations, vitamins and supplements cover the following ailments:

  • Catarrh (bronchial)
  • Influenza
  • Tonsillitis
  • Sinusitis
  • The common cold

Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinuses and everyone who suffers from a head cold experiences it to some degree. The complaint is more severe if the channels for drainage become blocked and congested and infection sets in.

The other ailments mentioned are so common that explanation here would seem futile.

Diet

Decrease solid foods to the minimum and under a doctor’s supervision take juices as a substitute until the fever subsides. Consume herb teas along with the juices. Make juices more palatable by varying them.

Once the fever has subsided, change the diet to add fresh fruit and raw vegetables as well as the juices. Honey is good for sweetening the herb teas.

When strength has returned, follow the health diet that comes later in this book.
