Private Confessions of a Health Guru

“Sickness comes on horse back, but goes away on foot.”


Ok guys I have a little confession to make today that I’m not very proud of – I was out of the office all day yesterday sick in bed.

Were not talking just a minor case of the sniffles here either – I was officially out of commission, down for the count and crying for my mommy.

All and all I was probably only awake for about 4 or 5 hours the entire day. The rest of the time I spent bundled up in bed trying to fall back asleep all along cursing my fate.

And being that I’m a health writer and a self professed health guru yesterday’s bout with sickness was demoralizing to say the least.

But that doesn’t mean I took it lying down – well I did do a lot of lying down but I think you know what I mean. I fought back every step of the way.

From the minute I woke up to call my office and let them know I wouldn’t be in I began tapping into every weapon Mother Nature has in her arsenal to fight back against these nasty bugs.

And just the fact that I’m back in the office writing to you today is proof positive that these natural haling miracles really pack a serious punch.

Know Your Enemy:

By most estimates Americans suffer about 1 billion colds a year, with young children receiving the brunt – contracting around 6-10 colds annually.

There are more than 200 different viruses known to cause the symptoms of the common cold. And traditionally the symptoms, severity and length of your cold will depend mostly on the type of virus you’ve contracted and the strength of your immune system.


Endurance and Firmness are the 2 keys to truly gratifying sex – for you and your lover!

It’s for that very reason Best Life Herbals has combined Traditional Eastern Medicine with rigorous Western medical research techniques to formulate the most potent sexual intensifier ever formulated. It’s Fast, Potent and effective – but don’t take my word for it…

Go here and read what our Best Life Herbals Wellness Team has to say about the most revolutionary sexual enhancer known to man:


In the US most of us catch colds in the winter time – but what most folks don’t know is that it has nothing to do with the cold weather.

The reason people tend get more colds in the winter time is due to the low humidity caused by indoor heaters – not because of the cold air outside.

Our first and most effective line of defense against most air born viruses is the mucus that lines our upper respiratory tract.

Typically this mucus traps the viruses as we inhale them – the germs are then swept into the stomach before they have a chance to invade our blood stream and are quickly destroyed by our stomach acids.

This system is very effective at killing most viruses and uses very little energy to do so. But when this system fails due to a lack of moisture in the air, the germs then have to be dealt with by our immune system.

Unfortunately though, this process uses up a lot of energy and it leaves you with that slow dragging your butt feeling you associate with being sick.

But that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through this vicious assault lying down – you do have options…

The Hands Off Approach:

While cold viruses can be transmitted through the air via coughing and sneezing, you’re more likely to catch a cold from direct contact. Basically, your hands come into contact with the virus, then you touch your eyes, nose or mouth and bang – you’re sick!

So by simply washing your hands with plain old soap and water after coming into contact with the virus you can stop most colds dead in their tracks.

These resilient viruses can live for up to 3 hours on objects like doorknobs and telephone receivers. So if you’re around anyone you think might be sick cleaning these surfaces with a disinfectant cleaner should help keep them at bay.

But if you’re reading this right now and you’re already feeling a bit under the weather it’s too late for that advice – in your case like mine you’re going to need the help of a few all natural proven cold killers…

Vitamin C: By now everyone and there mother knows that Vitamin C is a proven cold killer. But the next time you’re sick try trading in your orange juice for a glass of fresh pineapple juice.

Not only does pineapple juice contain more Vitamin C than orange juice, it’s less acidic in the stomach and it won’t leave you with that burning feeling that comes with drinking too much OJ.

Another great cold crusher is grapefruit. Grapefruits are rich in vitamin C and contain special enzymes that help detoxify your liver. And your liver just happens to be the point man for your entire immune system.

Echinacea: Once the most popular cold remedy in the US, Echinacea is starting to make its comeback. The Native Americans used Echinacea to cure colds and other respiratory infections for hundreds of years with amazing success.

And it’s already one of the most popularly prescribed cold and flu fighters in Germany, where herbal medicine is part of the main stream.


This is without a doubt the single most important step you can take for your overall health and wellbeing. If you’ve had a cold or flu in the last year you need to take advantage now!

Follow this link to find out the secret of the centurions:


Andrographis: Here’s one I’m pretty sure you’ve never heard of – Andrographis has been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for over 1,000 years as a cold and flu fighter.

Commonly known as “Indian Echinacea” because of its impressive reputation as a virus killer, Andrographis is currently taking the main stream medical community by storm.

Although they’re still in their infancy, clinical studies conducted on Andrographis have yielded some amazing results and have shown no known negative side effects thus far.

Zinc: Last but certainly not least on my list of all natural cold remedies are zinc lozenges. Zinc is an essential nutrient in our bodies and plays a key role in helping maintain a strong immune system and in repairing damaged cells.

Research has shown that using zinc lozenges alone can cut the length of your cold in half – that alone could make all the difference in the world.

Truth be told there’s nothing we can really do to ensure we’ll NEVER get sick. Even if you shut yourself inside an airtight room for the remainder of your days you’d still probably catch a cold at some time or another.

But what we can do is control the length and severity of our suffering. So let’s stay vigilant, eat right, exercise regularly – make your body a harsh environment for germs to live in.

And when you do feel a sniffle coming on now you know how to fight back with maximum effectiveness and zero mercy!

Stay Healthy!
