Prevention for the Common Cold : What to Do When Cold Symptoms Start


Hi! This is David Jackel on behalf of Expert
Village and I’m here to talk to you about what to do when you feel a cold coming on.
Now you know the feeling, all the sudden you don’t feel so hot or maybe you do feel hot,
you feel kind of weak, your nose gets congested, you have a slight cough and you think, oh
no I’ve got a cold. So what should you do? The first thing you should do is chill out,
all the stress that you have is going to contribute to, if you do have a cold, it’s going to contribute
to making it even worse. So make a point of relaxing, that’s the time to take a day off
and go to bed. Rest is the most important thing at this point, if you get enough rest
right at the beginning, you may just keep that cold from every really developing. Another
thing you should do is make sure you do everything you can to boost your immune system, drink
plenty of water, take lots of vitamins, make sure that whatever you eat is healthy and
then get that rest. Bed rest is the most important thing. Some doctors also recommend taking
Zinc, at the first signs of a cold, Zinc akinesia and I find that to help, although there is
not scientific proof that it definitely works. You can do a nasal rinse which is going to
clean out your nose and help you breathe more easily and relax and you’ll feel better. A
hot shower can also be helpful because it will help you relax, it’ll kill the germs
and it’ll help you open up your respiratory system. The first day that you have those
symptoms, is the most important point in how the cold will or will not develop. So if you
take emergency procedures right away, you may find that the cold will be much lighter
or it may not even happen.
