The Uncommon but Better Treatment
for the Common Cold

by Harold Kulungian
(24 May 06)

There is a simple commonsense method for understanding health problems, which the ancients understood clearly, but which has long since been lost since the practice of medicine ceased to be holistic. Medicine ceased to be based on commonsense physiological knowledge when Pasteur's germ theory of disease gained dominance at the end of the 19th century.

Before the days when diseases became simplicistically ascribed to germs, medical practitioners actually looked at the symptoms of any particular health problem and drew their logical inferences from fundamental physiological knowledge.

Take the case of the common cold. What are the symptoms? Liquid is rising in the body, instead of going downwards and out. Liquid is generally flowing from the nose, often in th eyes as well, accumulating in the lungs and sinuses, causing coughing and wheezing, headache and general discomfort.

So really the problem of the common cold is quite simple: eliminate the excess moisture that is rising in the body. That can be accomplished by a variety of methods.

1. Restrict liquid intake to a minimum. Drink only enough to satisfy thirst.
2. Absorb the excess liquid by eating dry food. Wholewheat toast, lightly salted rice-cakes (Lundberg brand is best), or dry crackers. After chewing dry baked goods very well, wait until thirst comes before drinking--just as cats and dogs do not drink immediately after eating dry food.
3. Wear a long-sleeved jersey, either a turtleneck or one that fits snugly enough to cover the windpipe.
4. Restrict food also to a miinimum in order to spare the kidneys extra work.
5. Sit near a source of dry heat.

The common cold is curable within the space of time it takes to dry out the body from its excess moisture; 24 hours should do it.

The reason why colds are so common in springtime is the sudden changes of weather and the fact that the indoor air is no longer so dry as it was during winter now that the heating-systems have diminished their output. The best safeguard is to continue to dress warmly; especially keep the forearms covered with a close-fitting jersey.

And do not indulge in drinking coffee or tea or juices when one is not thirsty. By exercising caution not to overburden our kidneys with needless liquid, we spare ourselves the main cause of fatigue and illness: overworked kidneys that are unable to filter out the excess liquid and dietary waste products from our body.

This holistic commonsense approach is obviously the direct opposite of modern medicine's injunction to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Anyone who tries such foolish nonesense will only aggravate his agony.

Try it and see for yourself!
