Natural Cold and Flu Relief: Herbalix Respiratory Freedom Relief Salve

When the temperatures plunge as low as they have this week – many states are experiencing sub-zero weather conditions – it is no wonder that people are sick with colds and flu. But in reality, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), cold weather does not actually cause colds. Most likely colds occur more frequently during cold weather because the environments within the schools inside may increase exposure to the virus that causes colds – such as the coronaviruses and the rhinoviruses, which is the one virus that causes about 35 percent of all colds. Because people are indoors more in the winter, where the air is drier, this can mean a reduction in humidity, thus contributing to dry nasal passages, making us ripe for the viruses. It actually inflames the membranes in the lining of your nose and throat. There may be more than 200 different virus strains, but out of all of the cold viruses, the rhinoviruses (nose) and the coronaviruses (eyes) cause the majority of colds.

The common cold is basically just a viral and infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract affecting the nose and head. Symptoms are often miserable, including runny nose, sneezing, coughing, and a sore throat, along with joint stiffness, itchy eyes and a stuffed up head.

Did you know that during a one-year period, people in the United States will most likely suffer from about a billion colds. On average adults come down with between two to four colds a year, while young kids can have up to twelve colds in a year. Research from Ohio State University tells us that colds are one of the most prevalent illnesses, leading to more doctor visits and days missed from school and work than any other sickness annually.

Your overall health and resistance as well as the immune system help ward off colds, along with hand washing, avoiding touching mucous membranes such as the eyes and nose, coughing in your sleeve, hands to cover your mouth, using a tissue or handkerchief when possible or your sleeve as a last resort, and overall good hygiene. Naturalists will tell you to drink chicken soup, and that garlic, ginger or turmeric will help kill the virus germs.

There is one natural product that many people have discovered — the moisturizing stick salve, Herbalix Respiratory Freedom™ Relief Salve, which can help relieve
