The common cold and flu are NEVER caught by getting cold or a draft. It is always spread by direct contact with an infected person, or by larger airborne droplets that are launched a few feet by breathing, coughing, or sneezing as tiny particles that remain in the air until they are inhaled, which enter the eyes or the nose not the mouth. Exposure to a virus does not mean the exposed person will definitely get sick.
- Most viruses, which cause the common colds only survive on the hands for a short amount of time. Many only last for a few minutes but 40% of rhinoviruses, are still infectious on hands after one hour.
- Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), another cold-like virus can cause serious illness in children. RSV can survive on worktops and door handles for up to six hours, on clothing, and tissues for 30-45 minutes, and on skin for up to 20 minutes.
- Influenza viruses capable of being transferred to hands and causing an infection can survive on hard surfaces for 24 hours.
- The BEST PREVENTION against these infections is HYGIENE.
Several factors are involved in the transmission of a cold or flu such as: host susceptibility, immune function status, and virulence of the organism as well as lack of exercise, lack of sleep, or poor-quality sleep, stress, depression, mood and eating poorly. In addition, people who have a positive outlook and generally tend to be happy and more relaxed have shown to have a lower risk of developing a cold. One of the biggest contributors of colds and all types of predisposition and severity to any infection is low adrenal function – low DHEAs (more on this in the cytokine’s section below).
Embryonic Plant Extracts (EPEs) for the Prevention or Management of the Common Cold and Influenza (Flu) Symptoms.
Arresto-Prevento PSC® is to be taken immediately when you feel a common cold or the flu coming on. Take 15 drops every waking hour (16 times) per day or 30 drops every two hours (8 times), for two solid days and then as needed (3-4 times daily). 90% of the time it will abort most common colds and influenza or greatly reduce their severity and duration. Children < 80 lbs.1/2 and infants 1/3 of the recommended adult serving.
The trick here is in trying to abort its progression by taking: Arresto Prevento the minute you suspect any symptoms of an incoming cold or flu. This should already be in your “medicine cabinet arsenal” because if you have to order Arresto Prevento it is already too late. If you fail to start taking Arresto-Prevento at the very early-onset of symptoms, you can end up, unfortunately, with a full-blown infection, however, it will always be reliable for reducing the severity and duration of most common colds and flu’s. Taking 30 drops 4 times a day is good at inhibiting viral replication. Children < 80 lbs.1/2 and infants 1/3 of the recommended adult serving.
Think of Arresto Prevento PSC® as the “natural Tamiflu”. This Vegetable Embryonic Serum (VESTM) complex contains a combination of single embryonic plant extracts (EPE) that work synergistically and without adverse side effects like that of what is reported from the synthetic drug Tamiflu.
Antibiotics and the Common Cold
Antibiotics are not effective for ANY VIRAL INFECTION WHATSOEVER. Due to the misuses of antibiotics, we now have these “Super Bugs Strains” that can last up to two months. This is courtesy of physicians whom over the phone prescribed these antibiotics without ever seeing the patient.
Nowadays, it is very common to have low grade colds that can last about two months. Furthermore, when run down and already sick with one cold, you are more susceptible to multiple colds all at once or catching one cold after another cold. This is precisely why people often think that they are relapsing. When, in fact, they either caught a new cold or are living the various strains of this super bug. This gets better for a few days and again flairs up with returning symptoms until you have lived through all strains. Now that you know the nature of today’s type of common colds, DO NOT RUSH to call your physician for him to prescribe antibiotics over the phone. You must be seen in person to determine if antibiotics are absolutely warranted.
Prior to taking any antibiotic for any infection always insist on having a culture and sensitivity being conducted for back up in the event of an antibiotic failure.
What qualifies taking an antibiotic? When you are having severe symptoms:
- A sudden skin rash.
- Body aches.
- Excruciating sore throat that feels like fire with laceration and painful swallowing.
- Huge tonsils with discharged of pus, white or grey colored spots on the tonsillar beds and/or tongue and pharynx. Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus.
- Nausea or vomiting, especially in young children.
- Persistent fevers and headaches.
- Serious sore throat with the complete loss of your voice and pain.
- Swollen, tender lymph nodes in the neck.
- Tiny red spots on the area at the back of the roof of the mouth (soft or hard palate).
