WAGE WAR AGAINST COLDS AND FLU THIS WINTER
WHAT CAUSES A COLD?
Breathing in a cold virus does not itself cause a cold. If you try to give someone a cold for example, it takes more than a virus.
Scientists have incubated cold viruses, placed them directly on the mucous lining of the nose, and found that their subjects came down with colds only 12 percent of the time. FOR GERMS TO GROW IN YOU, YOU MUST BE FERTILE SOIL.
THE MEDICAL APPROACH
Orthodox medicine offers no cure for the common cold. Taking antibiotics for a cold is completely worthless because colds are associated with viruses (antibiotics work only on bacteria). Giving antibiotics "just in case" has been criticized in the medical literature as unnecessary and dangerous.
THE CHIROPRACTIC APPROACH
Chiropractic does not treat the common cold. However, chiropractic care can help raise your natural resistance to disease by removing a serious interference to your proper body function; Vertebral subluxations. Remember an elevated temperature is one of your body's defense mechanisms, helping you destroy infection. Lowering a fever reduces this defense against disease.
As Dr Warren says, "Keeping your body free from vertebral subluxation keeps your natural immunity high and could make the difference between a quick recovery and lingering illness."
