Hi. I’m jimmy.
Today, the masked, Kung-flu-fighter.
We catch a “cold” when we are cold. Our noses, sinuses, throats and lungs, the coldest parts of our body, get infected first.
But viruses do have their kryptonite. We don’t get a fever to help the virus. Human bodies learned long, long ago that a fever weakens viruses so our immune system can kill em. Viruses thrive when you are cold. They weaken and wither at fever temperatures.
That’s why I wear a mask. Ok, a neck sleeve/warmer. The cloth catches the outgoing warmth and moisture and uses it to heat and humidify your incoming breath. Personal experience has shown me that this suppresses and soothes my dry coughs. My knit hat keeps my head and forehead sinuses warm. I wear em all to bed as well as socks. Chilly feet drop your nose temperature creating a beachhead for the virus invaders.
And keep the heat on em! Take a long, hot bath or shower, 20 minutes at least, every day during winter. Studies have proven that people who get their body temperatures up for at least 20 minutes each day have fewer and shorter colds. Before you’re sick, exercising is the best way. When you are sick that’s not such a good idea. And who has time to exercise every day, any way?
Put that aspirin down and back away slowly. Aspirin will lower your temperature. And you will feel a little better, but only a little, for days and days and days while the viruses feed at the banquet buffet you’ve made of your body by lowering your temperature with that aspirin.
A word of caution, however – some peoples bodies over react some of the time. The life/brain threatening threshold is 104 for teenagers and adults. Some doctors say 100 for babies. Monitor your temperature and call the doctor if the fever even starts to come close. But don’t hinder your own body when your temperature is well below the danger line.
Alcohol is awful. Like Aspirin, it might make you feel a little better for a little while, but it puts the kibosh on your immune system. The infamous Hot Toddy helps a little, but only because the herbs and raw honey offset the devil’s brew in it.
And About those doctors who prescribe antibiotics for colds. Antibiotics have no effect on viruses. There is nothing that the doctor can prescribe that kills viruses. Doctors that do are breeding super-resistant bacteria in your body.
Vaccines are vacuous. A 2013 study by the government found that older adults were just as likely to end up at the doctor as those not vaccinated. The government admits that each years vaccines attack only 3 or 4 types at most, usually only 2, of last years models. Yet the famous Mayo Clinic exposes the fact that you may have one of more than 100 different viruses. Moreover, viruses mutate at a vicious rate. Since it takes the lab rats, human type, a minimum of 8 to 10 months to create a new vaccine, none of this years myriads of mutations are affected. Your body is your best defense. It wants to search and destroy em. You can aid and abet it.
Take the fight to the next level. Go to DEFCON 3! Vitamin D3, that is. Take it all the time but especially in winter. It’s proven to reduce both the number and duration of colds as well as help the winter blues. Liquid drops are probably the best. and it works better with its trusty, K2 dog at its side, vitamin K2, that is.
Heal with Herbs. Scientists unmasked herbs as the super Kung Flu Fighter in chicken soup.
Become Buffy, the Flu-slayer and gag em with good old garlic. I like fresh, which is probably the best. But you can buy odor free pills.
Zap em with Zinc. Scientists think it prevents virus cells from reproducing by coating them so they can’t hook up with your cells.
Oil up with Oregano.
Take a leaf from Popeye’s girlfriend, Olive, leaf extract, that is.
Eat your honey raw. With no protection, unfiltered, that is. Raw honey is full of essential minerals those busy bees brought home, and eat the comb too, its full of Propolis Police bad ass bacteria fighters.
When life gives you lemons, use em for ammo. on your salads, Alternate or combine lemon juice and Johnny Appleseed’s vinegar for a Vendetta against viruses.
Mushrooms march through microbes.
Pepper em with Cayenne
Cripple em with C. Megadoses of Vitamin C reduced duration and symptoms by 85%. Even the AMA’s results with small doses reduced em by 8 to 18%, which WebMd and the AMA claim is insignificant. Not to me and those suffering that ain’t insignificant. Think of the billions businesses would save.
And don’t forget water. Our bodies use it to flush em out. Drink plenty of it as well a various herb teas with raw honey. No coffee, coke or caffeinated teas. Even decaf has lots of caffeine – a diuretic that robs your body of the precious fluids it needs in the fight against colds.
Equally important for your immune system: “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”
Worry weakens your immune system. Happy helps it.
So meditate to mend. Slow down and live. Life’s not a rehearsal. There’s no reload or start over button in this game.
Eat and drink less, but be merry, for tomorrow we might die. However, plan a little, work a little, just in case you don’t.
Thanks for watching,

I am not a doctor. This video is for educational purposes only. Read the studies and watch the videos I have linked, all based on scientific studies. Check with your doctor, especially with a high fever – Doctors are well intentioned, but not gods. In this videos description you’ll find a list of their theories that were proven wrong. Today, doctors are over prescribing antibiotics and opioids – causing crises.
Exercise can prevent a cold
Only 3 or 4 viruses
Flu vaccine just 36% effective
Vitamin D helps prevent colds
In a study led by Dr. H. Clay Gorton, D.C., and published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics in 1999 reported flu and cold symptoms in the test group following treatment with vitamin C were a whopping 85 percent lower when compared to the control group. Researchers concluded that vitamin C – in megadoses – administered either before or after the start of cold or flu symptoms successfully relieved and prevented the symptoms in the test population compared with the control group.
A 2013 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that older adults receiving the flu vaccine were just as likely to seek medical attention for flu symptoms as those not receiving the vaccine.
Vitamin C, in low doses, reduces frequency and duration 8 to 18%
The scientific lit has exposed that, at most, only 10 to 30% of those who get vaccinated are helped – unless you count the legal drug pushers profits – they’re making a killing off opioids – pun intended.
To maintain a healthy immune system, your body needs a range of nutrients, the most important being zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folate and vitamins A, C, E and B-6, according to an article in the “The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.” Teas that include these nutrients could help you fight the illness from within. Two teaspoons of peppermint leaves give you 136 milligrams of vitamin A, about 25 percent of the recommended daily intake for that nutrient. A teaspoon of dried thyme gives you 81 milligrams of calcium and 163 milligrams of vitamin A. Chamomile tea provides you with small amounts of most of these nutrients, but it is not particularly high in any of them. Read labels and find herbal teas rich in vitamins and minerals.
