Prevent and Cure a Cold with Hydrogen Peroxide


As we’re coming up on cold and flu season, I am getting my natural medicine cabinet stocked and ready to go. In a perfect world, we would eat super clean, wholesome food and do things to support and build up our immune system so that we wouldn't get sick in the first place, but if life isn't so perfect, here’s little trick to kick a cold fast!

I try and do this at the FIRST SIGN of a cold or flu and every so often for prevention.
Pour a few drops of Hydrogen Peroxide 3% into your ear and let it sit for 10 minutes or until the bubbling and stinging stops, then let drain. Then do the other ear. If you are using it for more prevention, you may not have bubbling and stinging, but still let it sit for a while. You can do this a few times a day when sick or even every couple of hours. 
It is safe and super cheap! According to this source, results have included curing the cold virus within 12 to 14 hours. I have been using it for the past year or so when I felt a cold coming on (the slight sore throat) and it usually nips it in the bud by the next day. 

Will my toddler let me do this to him? Not really. If he is distracted or watching TV I can try and let him lie on my lap, but it's definitely not in there as long as it should. Its bound to help a little bit though!

To make it a little bit easier, you can buy the little Glass Bottle with Dropper on amazon, or you can usually find them at Whole Foods.
