Did you know that the common cold is the most frequent infectious disease in humans?
Colds are upper respiratory tract infections (URT, URTI) and one of the most common reasons for doctor visits, missed work and school, spoiled vacations and general malaise.
While you might be feeling lousy, the good news is antibiotics are not required. Although, there are remedies to speed the relief and healing. The bad news is a cold or flu can last a week or two, and some people suffer even longer. The average adult gets two to four colds a year, while the average child may get six to eight. The odds of catching a cold are mighty high!
Cold and flu germs are everywhere! Has this ever happened to you? You’re quietly enjoying your movie when the person sitting next to you loudly sneezes, with water droplets flying everywhere.
Or, you’re at a business meeting when a new colleague wants to shake your hand, and you noticed out of the corner of your eye that she just blew her nose. How about at the gym, when the weight station you’re at was just used by someone coughing. And then there’s the experience traveling when everyone around you seems to be coughing, sniffling and suffering from runny noses. Ah, the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
Do you ever wonder why, when someone isn’t in such close proximity to you, you’re still vulnerable to their cold and flu germs?
There are well 200 virus strains that a responsible for causing the common cold, the most common is the rhinovirus. Catching the rhino.....as in virus, is quite easy as these viruses spread easily through the air during close contact with contact with infected people and indirectly through contact with objects in the environment followed by transfer to the mouth or nose.
The viruses can sometimes survive on indoor surfaces for more than seven days. In general, viruses survive for longer on non-porous (water resistant surfaces, such as stainless steel and plastics, than porous surfaces, such as fabrics and tissues.) Most viruses which cause colds only survive on hands for a short amount of time. Some only last for a few minutes but 40% of rhinoviruses, are still infectious on hands after one hour. Cold and flu germ-laden droplets may remain infectious for several hours, depending on where they fall. As you can see, the odds of catching a cold are tremendous!
While there is no vaccine for the common cold. there is now a product that may help your body ward off a cold or flu, simply by spraying the formula to the back of your throat. That’s pretty amazing given that most germs are spread through the air in sneezes, coughs, or even breaths. Germs can also spread in sweat, saliva, and blood. Some pass from person to person by touching something that is contaminated, like shaking hands with someone who has a cold and then touching your own nose. I know, yuck, right? But I hope you can see how easy it is to catch a cold, those nasty viruses are everywhere, and too easily caught.
Up until now the primary methods of cold and flu prevention have been washing your hands, not touching your eyes or mouth and stay away from sick people. With all those viruses lurking around, it certainly isn’t heart-warming to learn that you are virtually defenseless against these germs. That is, until Cold-Q. By spraying Cold-Q to the back of your throat, the spray goes to the back of the throat, the site of the viral attack. Sounds simple and cool, doesn’t it? And it is.
Now you may ask: how can an oral spray possibly help stop the ravages of a cold or flu perhaps in a more superior manner than a pill?
The answer comes down to how viruses cause infection. They can’t live on their own. They can only thrive inside human cells. Once they are in, however, they can really cause trouble. They take over the cell, multiply to incredibly high numbers and then head out in search of other cells to invade. Within a few days, a single virus can make millions of new viruses and eventually wreak havoc.
But, if you can block the virus from getting into a cell, you can keep the virus out and the infection won’t occur. Even if one or a few viruses have already started the process, a barrier can keep the new ones from making the situation worse. That is why a spray has such an advantage over other cold and flu treatment options. It goes directly to the cells and immediately forms that barrier. As soon as you feel exposed or a tickle in the throat, just open your mouth, tilt your head back and push the pump. That’s it. No need to wait for a lozenge to dissolve or the digestive system to send the active ingredients into the blood stream.
So the next time you’re pondering which mode of delivery you should use, an oral spray or pill, consider a spray as it goes to the site of infection and may be the most effective way to block a virus.
As soon as you start feeling the first symptoms of a cold or flu, you should spray with Cold-Q, which has antiviral and immune enhancing properties. Cold-Q is 100% all natural used to help you fight off a cold or flu by spraying its herbal formula to the back of your throat, the very site where colds and flus attack. Taken at the first sign of symptoms, Cold-Q can work with your body to fight off a viral attack at the very early stages of development.
So, the next time you’re feeling vulnerable to a cold or flu virus the choice is simple. Your old cold and flu regimen full of chemicals that leave you feeling drowsy and dried out? Or developing a new healthy habit, which is all natural, and attacks the virus, right where it lives, at the back of your throat. The answer is clear.
