Fall and winter are upon us once again, and with them the most common illnesses of the season: the cold and the flu.  People often use the terms cold and flu interchangeably; however, these are two separate conditions.

The common cold is an upper respiratory infection caused by a virus.  It is usually not accompanied by a fever but it does affect the nose, sinuses, throat, larynx, and often also the trachea and bronchi.

Influenza, or flu (grippe, grip), is also a viral infection affecting the respiratory tract but in addition is accompanied by fever, general malaise, headache, muscle pain, stomach pain and such.  In severe cases, it may even result in death.

 

Causes

There are over 200 different types of viruses which can cause a cold.  Most commonly, you can get a cold by touching your nose, eyes or mouth after handling a contaminated object.  However, cold-causing viruses can also be transmitted through the air.  Exposure to chilly outdoor air will not make you more susceptible to get a cold as is often believed, on the other hand, emotional distress and excessive fatigue actually may.  On average, an adult may experience between 3-6 colds in a year, while a child may have as many as 8-10.

Many different types of influenza viruses belonging to either Influenza A or B groups may cause the flu.  The flu is very contagious and spreads easily from person-to-person (e.g. through handshakes or the sharing of utensils) or via air droplets (containing a virus) that contaminate objects.  Flu epidemics often occur about every x number of years and usually affect the entire country; occasionally (about once per decade), the flu spreads across all continents.

 

Signs and Symptoms

Cold:

  • Sneezing and runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Possible fever ( 39C or lower)
  • Headache

Flu:

  • Sudden fever (up to 40C)
  • Fatigue, chills, headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Sneezing, runny and stuffy nose
  • Sore throat
  • Nonproductive cough
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

 

Treatments

Conventional medicines, herbs, supplements and other forms of treatment can only help in alleviating the symptoms of both, the cold and the flu, but cannot treat or cure either condition.

The following is recommended for both the flu and cold:

  • Drink a lot of water and other fluids – water, juice, clear broth or warm lemon water with honey will help loosen congestion and prevent dehydration
  • Salt water – a salt-water gargle (1/2 teaspoon salt in 250 ml of warm water) can relieve a sore throat
  • Saline nasal sprays – will help you combat stuffiness and congestion.  Unlike decongestants, saline sprays don’t lead to a rebound effect – a worsening of symptoms when the medication is discontinued.  They are safe and nonirritating, even for children.

Take a Plaster – Bamboo’s strength and vitality.

Wood vinegar plasters were developed to help revitalize the body and promote better health and longevity.  Wood vinegar plasters are totally natural, safe and easy to use.

 Wood vinegar plasters:

– soothe pain and reduces swelling 

– strengthen the immune system 

– relieve fatigue 

– improve the quality of sleep 

– improve metabolism

 

Your body is bombarded constantly by environmental pollutants and attacked by toxins present in food and drinks.  Such substances build up in your body continuously.  If not removed, the substances can become toxic waste accumulating in your body and contributing to the occurrence of various diseases and brain dysfunctions. 

Accumulated toxic waste tends to affect and disturb all systems in your body and so to predispose your body organs, joints and tissues to inflammations.  Once the microorganisms that induce inflammation start to proliferate, the disease begins to develop.  And when the waste substances present in your body reach a certain level, you can experience fatigue, restlessness, brain and nervous disturbances and other health problems.

Benefiting from the experience and well-proven procedures of traditional Chinese medicine, Take a Plaster detox patches help cleanse your body of toxic waste.

There are over 360 reflection points on the surface of the human body.  More than 60 of them are located on the soles, which traditional Chinese medicine regards as the “second heart” of the body.  Toxins travel through your body during the day and accumulate in the reflection zones of your feet.  Wood vinegar essence extracted from some tree species has the capability to absorb toxins through the reflection points on the soles.

And it is this principle fostered by traditional Chinese medicine that is used by the new Akuna product – the Take a Plaster patch.  As the blood circulating through your body passes through your feet, the patches applied to the soles absorb toxins accumulated in the body.  The harmful substances are thus removed in a natural manner and it is easier for blood to flow through the legs and feet.  In this way your body will attain the optimum health.

 

Main ingredients:

 
Wood vinegar improves blood circulation and exerts an osmotic effect facilitating the transfer of toxins through cell membranes, whereby it helps significantly in removing harmful substances via pores on the soles.  Wood vinegar also has the capacity to remove toxins from swollen body parts and relieves other problems that cause swelling.

Bamboo vinegar is a very rare and valuable by-product of bamboo carbonization. It features exceedingly good absorption and sterilization properties.  In fact, bamboo vinegar is believed to be three times as efficient as wood vinegar. Its favorable herbal properties can be used to remove unwanted harmful waste substances and toxins from human body.

Tourmaline transfers the cleansing and liberating energy with its stabilizing and purging effect to the whole nervous system.  In the product, tourmaline removes blocks and improves blood circulation and metabolism.  As a consequence, tourmaline is also efficient in relieving stress, improving vigor and strengthening the immune system.

 

Additional ingredients:

Dextrin, carapace powder, vitamin C, vegetable fibers

Ten tips on how to eat well and live healthy:

1.   Do not eat until you are genuinely hungry.  When you are hungry our stomach will tell us that it needs food.  This means the stomach is empty from the previous meal and is ready to digest a new meal.  If you eat when you are not hungry or continually eat and mix semi digested foods with new ones, it will cause the mixture to stay in the stomach pouch for a longer time.  This causes purification and fermentation of foods leading to health problems.

2.   Do not over eat.  The stomach has a limited capacity for food and needs some space for mixing and digestion.  If it is completely full, it cannot function properly.  The stomach is located beneath heart, and when the stomach is full it expands and applies pressure on the heart.  The process leaves very little space for the heart to beat at its proper pace.  Too much pressure can cause the heart to palpitate or to beat at irregular intervals.  Always stop eating before you feel full.  It takes approximately 20 minutes for the stomach to let your brains know you are in fact full and that it is best at that time to stop eating.

3.   Take liquids before solids.  Foods that are less difficult to digest and require less time should be eaten first.  After the easier swallow food has been consumed, start with harder to chew foods that need more time for digestion.  The food, which is more solid and has the lower water content, should be taken after the food, which has highest water content.  Soup and vegetables should be taken before the main meal.

4.   Do not drink while you are eating.  Water, juices or carbonated drinks should not be taken with a meal as they dilute the stomach juices and enzymes and interrupt digestion process.  This causes gas, bloating, pain, constipation and toxicity of the whole body.  Undigested food goes into the intestines and then into the colon where it putrefies and ferments to create more gas and acid, which is then re-absorbed, into the bloodstream.  Water and all kinds of drinks can be taken half an hour before and about two hours after the meal.

5.   It is best to chew each bite of food 20-30 times.  Chewing food is a very important process in proper digestion.  Dieticians recommended chewing solid food to the extent.  This ensures for proper breakdown and causes the food to change to the more liquid for before making for a more simple digestion process.  Many problems and diseases are caused by not chewing food adequately.

6.   Do not mix different food groups together and try to eat a single food group at one time.  There are different groups of food in nature, for instance fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.  Most of the food we consume is complex, but in order to have better digestion it is best not mix proteins with carbohydrates or fats with proteins.  For example, the traditional North American dish of steak   and potatoes in not a good mixture for healthy digestion and nutrients absorption.  If a potato, which is carbohydrate, gets served with vegetables it makes an ideal food combination.   Carbohydrates and vegetables also make a good combination.  A proper combination of the right foods makes for over all healthy digestion.

7.   Do not eat any processed or manufactured foods.  Any food that has been altered by the process using heat or the adding of chemicals to preserve or add flavor or is vitamin enriched is not healthy to eat.  For example, white bread does not have any food value left in it nor do cold cuts which are full of chemicals and coloring.  All added chemicals are hazardous to your health.

8.   Add lots of fiber to your meals.  The human digestive system is a long tube which should be filled with a large amount of fibrous foods.  Fiber absorbs water and cleans the digestive track.  A lack of fibers in your diet causes many kinds of disorders and diseases; from constipation to cancer.

9.   Drink at least eight glasses of water a day.  Our body is made up of 65% to 70% of water.  Without an adequate amount of water, the body does not function optimally and there is a general lack of energy and concentration.  All nutrients and vitamins must be dissolved in water in order to be absorbed into the bloodstream.  The amount of water to be drink is based on the body weight of the individual; for each kilogram of weight, one ounce of water is needed.  Note that too much water is also not recommended as it flushes the nutrients out of your body. 

10.   Exercise.  Exercising makes the muscles strong and keeps the bones dense.  It stimulates the lymphatic system keeping the fluids moving so it works better at keeping us healthy.  Our lymphatic system is responsible for waste collection and immunity protection.  It does not have a pumping system like our bloodstream has to the heart; therefore, the speed of fluid movement is very low.  Regular exercise keeps the continual appellation of toxins through the lymphatic system removing them from the body.

“We have to treat the causes of illnesses by cleaning and balancing our organism” – Dr. Sohrab Khoshbin

There are several organs that expulse invading toxins from our remarkable organism – the human body.  The most important role in this process belongs to the liver, which is responsible for all chemical activity in the body. In particular it is active in the processing of digested food.  The liver makes the most serious “decisions” in food absorption.  The most significant and remarkable organ has the capability to regenerate itself. I f we only had half of our liver, it would still be capable of performing all its function.

Liver has a very important role in our organism:

  •  Deprives the organism of toxic substances as well as from adverse fat in fried and chemically processed foods
  •  Fulfills 24 regular tasks
  •  The emotions such as anger, irritation or stress have a negative impact on liver activity

The other very important organ is the intestine, which escorts waste (the mass of sediments) from our body.  Our health depends, among other things, on regular elimination.  If sediments stay too long in our intestines, toxins are being created.  After time they get into our bloodstream which results in the poisoning of the organism.  This can lead to various illnesses such as migraine headaches or even cancer.

The kidneys also play an important role for toxin removal (in liquid form).  In Chinese medicine, the kidney is called “essence of life” which suggests our vital energy originates from this organ.  We can view the entire state of our organism functioning on the surface of our skin.  Skin blemishes and irregularities indicate that there are problems with digestion and toxicity.  Almost all skin illnesses originate from inside our organism and are signaled by various inflammations and eczemas.

The face is particularly revealing about our state of health.  Skin disorders on the upper lip give information about current stomach conditions and the lower lip points to adversities and intestines.  Blemishes found between the eyes alert to adverse conditions of the liver and stomach; if found on the tip of the nose, it can signal a heart problem.  The eyes are considered to be a reflection of the state of health of the body.

On the basis of iris research, many illnesses can be diagnosed, even in their initial stage before any symptoms are known.  The clarity of the eyes reveals the condition of the liver; if they are congested it means the liver is stressed with toxins.  If there are corners of the eye filled with veins it points to the heart being in less than optimum health.  If crusts appear in the corner of the eyes, it indicates that the liver is attempting to get rid of excessive amounts of fat.

It is necessary to observe the organism attentively because it informs us about all illnesses and balances disturbances so treatment can be administrated early before any serious damage occurs.  A traditional treatment of illnesses often depends on a successful elimination of symptoms.  This is only the suppression of the illness from an outside observance and only good for a short time period.  As the cause of illness is not clearly understood, it is difficult to be cured.  Ailments will continue and often in an intensive form.  It is necessary to look for a treat the cause and not only eliminate the effects.

As we know, the majority of civilization illnesses are the result of an improper way of life and excessive quantities of toxins in the organism; and to treat only the symptoms will never provide good results.  Alveo is an ideal herbal product that helps prevent inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.

There are two kinds of Alveo: peppermint and grape.  Aside from being different flavors, there is no difference between the two.  Each will clean and nourish our organism, creating a balance.  Both of them contain the same herbs.  The Peppermint Alveo is better for people who have stomach problems, especially for those that suffer from an abnormal production of acids.  The juice from grapes could have stimulating affects; while the peppermint in an alleviative.

The causes of imbalances in the organism:

  •  Hypoxia of particular organs
  •  Environmental pollution
  •  Consumption of processed food containing chemical substances
  •  Toxic compounds in our organism
  •  Overeating
  •  Insufficient physical activity
  •  Shortage of vitamins and minerals
  •  Stress, intensity and concern
  •  Inability to relax

Alveo prevents illness and keeps the organism healthy because:

  •  It is natural
  •  Acts positively for the gastrointestinal tract (Siberian Ginseng, Alfalfa)
  •  Supports digestion processes and the absorption of nutrients (Cardamom, Passionflower, Peppermint)
