I mentioned that I re-posted the article , emoticon Editor contributed from Shape magazine.

This group is called, Winners In God ,on Spark People.Editor is the pen-name of the leader of that sub-group.

Sorry, I did tell her that I copied her article, after I already passed it here.

Thanks for your understanding on this.



I don't know about Shape magazine. I t might be tricky to get them to respond, and I did make sure the magazine and author was mentioned.

The No. 1 Trick to Never Get Sick
By SHAPE magazine by Joe Donatelli

I Feel a cold coming on? Try this remedy!f you smell onions in someone's socks over the next few weeks, do not be alarmed. That person is probably just fighting a cold.

Everyone seems to have a custom "miracle cure" for the common cold, and it seems the more creative the solution, the less bashful they are about sharing. A recent poll of Facebook friends revealed the following methods, all of which the practitioners stand by (in their onion-filled socks, in some cases):

Heaps of vitamin C
Chicken soup, preferably homemade by Mom
Natural foods, fresh colorful veggies, and supplements
Chopping and eating a raw yellow onion (with a little salad dressing for taste) followed by a warm bath or a long shower to open the pores
Oscillococcinum, which is a homeopathic alternative medicine
Thieves Essential Oil
Coating feet with Vicks Vapor Rub and wearing a pair of socks overnight
Socks filled with peeled onion layers
Cardio, a few sips of whiskey, and cold medicine
Outdoor activity, hydration, and rest
Sex


Is the mighty common cold so wimpy that it can be defeated by a rubber ducky, menthol, socks, and a few lit candles? The answer lies in an interesting piece of research by Dr. Bruce Barrett at the University of Wisconsin.

In Barrett's study, cold sufferers were split into four groups-one group was given no pills, a second and third group were each given Echinacea or a placebo but were not told which pill they received, and a fourth group was given Echinacea and was told it was Echinacea. Each participant was asked to rate the effectiveness of the medicinal herb Echinacea.

The results: The illnesses of people who believed in Echinacea and received pills were considerably shorter and less severe-regardless of whether or not the pills contained Echinacea.

What does that mean for you? "A positive outlook matters," Barrett says. If someone believes a cold remedy works, it just might. No one knows for sure why. Barrett says that the manner in which the brain stimulates healing mechanisms through positive expectations is not entirely understood. But this certainly helps explain why there is a seemingly endless list of pharmaceuticals, alternative treatments, and quirky homemade solutions for treating the common cold.

As a practicing family doctor, Barrett strongly encourages the use of non-pharmaceutical cold remedies. For the record, I swear by orange juice, bananas, and vitamin C, which in the wide range of solutions turns out to be quite tame.

"I was being interviewed on 'The People's Pharmacy' (radio program) and a guy called in who melts skunk fat and gives a teaspoon of it to his kids when they start getting a cold," Barrett says. "He swore it stopped all of the colds in their tracks. That's worse than onion in the socks."
