Naturopathy for Cold

Immediately after contracting cold, increase the Vitamin C intake. At the early stages of cold, take very high doses of a Vitamin C supplement, up to 2,000 mg. This may stop the infection alone, but if left too late, this is not needed and may make the bowels too loose. Take 500 mg regularly until the remaining symptoms clear up.

Suck on zinc lozenges, with up to 20 mg zinc gluconate in them, every 3 -4 hours initially (taking tablets does not have the same effect).

Eat lots of fresh fruit for natural Vitamin A, B and C, and add plenty of raw garlic to food.

Cut out sugary, starchy or milky foods.

A short cleansing diet of just fresh fruit and salads, and plenty of liquids such as warm fruit juices or herb teas, will encourage the body to throw off the cold more effectively.
