Cold-Fix – Directions for Use
The great news about Cold-Fix is that it is easy to administer. Some cold and flu treatments are highly complex and even require the help of a physician or a trip to the doctor’s office to administer. Cold-Fix makes getting through the cold and flu season easier for parents and their children because of its simplicity. You don’t have to worry about a treatment that is going to be difficult to take. This is why Cold-Fix is the premier cold and flu treatment on the market today, for both children and adults.
First, remember that there is both a children’s version and an adult’s version of Cold-Fix:
- Cold-Fix for Children: Children under the age of 18 should consider using Cold-Fix for Children. Cold-Fix is administered orally, and the tablet should be held in the mouth until completely dissolved, then swallowed. The tablet should not be taken with a meal. Children aged 6 through 36 months should have the tablet dissolved in a tablespoon of drinking water before having the treatment administered.
- Cold-Fix for Adults: This product should be taken by individuals over the age of 18. Cold-Fix is administered orally, and the tablet should be held in the mouth until completely dissolved, then swallowed. The tablet should not be taken with a meal.
The standard Cold-Fix treatment for those suffering from the cold and flu typically lasts seven days. On the first day of treatment, one tablet should be taken once every 30 minutes for two hours, for a total of five treatments altogether. The next three doses should be taken at equal intervals throughout the rest of the first day. That’s a total of eight administrations during the first day. Over days two through seven, the treatment should be administered three times per day, over eight hour intervals. By the seventh day of treatment, symptoms typically will have subsided and the cold and flu virus will no longer be affecting the individual. If symptoms persist more than 4 days consult your physician.
Cold-Fix can furthermore be used as a prophylaxis to reduce the risk of getting cold and flu. For this, take one tablet daily for one to three months. This helps to strengthen the body’s immune system and prevent the cold and flu virus from taking hold.
Cold-Fix is a homeopathic remedy used to treat the flu and common colds. Let’s take a look at what homeopathy is and what it stands for:
Homeopathy is a holistic approach to healing which has been used across the world for hundreds of years. Homeopathic remedies are personalized for each specific individual, so each person gets the care that works best for them. Traditionally, homeopathic remedies are based on either animals, minerals, or plant products such as dried herbs. Homeopathic products have been regulated by federal agencies such as the FDA and are generally considered safe by the medical community. People from all types of backgrounds are using homeopathic solutions in order to solve their specific ailments. Some homeopathic remedies are used to treat illnesses such as allergies, fatigue, anxiety, asthma, dermatitis, and depression.
Homeopathic remedies are used to stimulate the body’s immune system. By stimulating the immune system, the body becomes better able to fend off similar illnesses in the future. This is one of the reasons why homeopathy is considered an effective treatment option for many individuals—they know that they stand a good chance of holding off future ailments and staying healthy.
Here are several benefits of homeopathic remedies:
- Homeopathic remedies are non-invasive: Unlike some traditional medical treatments which can be invasive such as injections, homeopathy is non-invasive.
- Patients don’t take high dosages of medicine: Some traditional medical regimes have patients taking high dosages of medicines that can cause serious side effects —sometimes for an indefinite period of time. Homeopathic remedies don’t require high dosages, generally don’t have side effects, and can even be a cure for some chronic conditions.
- The immune system is strengthened: Homeopathic remedies strengthen the immune system and leave patients better able to avoid illness in the future.
- Chronic conditions can be cured: Oftentimes traditional medicines treat chronic conditions over long periods of time by simply masking the symptoms. Homeopathic remedies can actually cure some long term chronic conditions which is a major reason why many individuals try homeopathy.
Understanding the immune system
One of the major benefits of homeopathic remedies is that they strengthen the immune system over time. When the immune system gets stronger over the course of the administration of the remedy, then the individual is less susceptible to the same illness in the future. Today’s traditional medical treatments typically only treat the short term symptoms that an individual suffers from. That means that once the symptoms subside, they can still reoccur in the future.
Homeopathic remedies are a safe alternative to other treatments that are used to improve an individual’s immune system. Other remedies focused on immune system response, such as allergy treatments, can cause unwanted side-effects that are even more severe than the original ailment. Homeopathic remedies are a preferable option for many individuals because they don’t produce those adverse side-effects.
While the immune system’s strength is often focused on, there are times when the immune system needs to be put under better control. When an individual is suffering from an autoimmune disease, such as arthritis, the body’s own immune system is attacking the body’s own cells when it shouldn’t be. Homeopathic remedies can help to calm the body’s immune system down and stop it from being overactive enough to attack its own cells. Several studies of various homeopathic remedies have shown that homeopathic solutions got patients suffering from autoimmune diseases more relief than a placebo.
The long term effects of homeopathy on the immune system are what make the remedies one of the more preferable options for individuals. One of the most common ailments—flu and the common cold—can be prevented if individuals have strong immune systems. Unfortunately, most traditional treatments today do not boost the immune system to prevent sickness in the future. They simply treat the current symptoms.
In the past two hundred years, there has been a significant amount of documentation of how homeopathic remedies work. Clinical trials are conducted to establish the therapeutic value of a certain product and are conducted under highly controlled conditions. The most commonly known form of clinical trials is called an RCT, or randomized controlled trial. This type of clinical trial typically has two groups—a group of patients who are receiving a treatment and a control group who are receiving a placebo. The randomized controlled trial is most effective if it is double blind. In a double blind trial, neither the patients receiving treatment nor the practitioners delivering the treatment know who is getting the test treatment and who is getting the placebo in order to eliminate bias.
Randomized placebo controlled trials have found that homeopathy can have a positive effect on individuals suffering from specific ailments. Through 2014, 189 peer-reviewed journals had reported RCTs for homeopathic remedies. The research was varied and included over 61 different medical conditions. 104 of the RCT papers were placebo controlled and evaluated by the Faculty of Homeopathy. Here are several medical conditions that homeopathy has produced positive results for:
- Hay fever
- Allergic skin reactions
- Cold and flu
The organization found that of 104 placebo controlled papers, 41 percent had positive findings, 54 percent were inconclusive, and only 5 percent presented negative findings. However, the number of inconclusive studies can be misleading. That’s because while clinical studies are designed to evaluate how specific treatments affect specific symptoms, homeopathic remedies are holistic and designed to treat the entire individual instead of their symptoms.
There are some ways that clinical trials can be designed to better evaluate homeopathic remedies. Researchers can utilize larger scale studies and larger sample sizes to get more conclusive results about a specific treatment. Clinical trials could also use research methods that are more suited to individualized therapies, such as pragmatic trials.
Still, clinical trials have shown a clear therapeutic benefit from these types of treatments, even if the research itself can be designed to better suit the specifics of homeopathy.
