Natural remedy offers relief of common cold

March 5, 2009 by  

Natural remedy offers relief of common cold In a climate where pharmaceutical drugs and traditional OTC medications can cause side effects and dangerous interactions, consumers are increasingly looking to alternative and natural products for relief of flu symptoms.

One such product, which is based on a pelargonium extract, has just been made available in the U.S.
Pelargonium sidoides is a medicinal plant native to South Africa that has a proven track record in treating upper respiratory tract infections.

The new product called Zucol is thus naturally safe and clinically proven to shorten the duration and reduce the severity of symptoms associated with the common cold.

Dr. David Riley, a clinical professor at the University of New Mexico Medical School and founder of the Integrative Medical Institute, says that given recent warnings about conventional cough and cold medications, the product provides an attractive alternative.

Side effects associated with some OTC cold remedies include rash, swelling, difficulties breathing, sleep disturbances, stomach bleeding and many other.

In recent months scientists have also issued a warning against using such medications in children under 6 years of age because they may cause dangerous reactions including hallucinations.

    A great fallacy is the general consensus that the common cold and other maladies are drug deficiencies. They are not drug deficiencies but deficiencies of the immune system.

    Prescription drugs as well as unpatented and over-othe-counter remedies is a multi-billion dollar business simply because modern medicine is nothing more than symptomology. People confuse the symptom for the sickness itself.

      You are absolutely right that deficiencies of the immune system are responsible for many of the illnesses and disease that afflict us today. Good health starts with good nutrition, which is the basis for all our body’s systems, including the immune system to function. At vibranthealthstores.com a free book is available which talks about cancer, but really applies to all systemic illnesses, and about the one thing everyone can do to live a healthy, energetic life.
