Dr Cheryl Kam - Blog - Functional medicine coach - Singapore - 7 tips to prevent a cold

As we know, there is no cure for the cold, and we often have no choice but to suck it up for a sniffly 4-5 days...

As a doctor in Singapore, an international travel hub, I am exposed to a huge selection of germs every day.  (And people ask me all the time how I prevent myself from catching everything!)

 

How can we decrease its severity and length of illness?

 

At first signs of a cold, sore throat or mild sniffles, I use a concoction of

1) 2000mg Vitamin C
2) 30mg Zinc Piccolinate
3) 1000mg Echinacea root 3 hourly
4) 8 hours of quality sleep a night
5) Plenty of water
6) Plenty of relaxation
7) Plenty of laughter

 

Other herbs to consider are black elderberry (sambucol) which has antiviral properties, and a powerful antioxidant such as olive leaf extract.

Especially for children, we stock the ever-popular Immunped which is a great tasting source of liquid zinc for our little ones aged 12 months onwards

 

Some trivia!
