Common Cold – The Body’s Miracle Cleansing Process
Any one day in winter, over 30 million Americans suffer with a bad cold. Adults average five to six colds per season, while children and teenagers often get double that amount. The body wants the toxins out!
Are these colds necessary? How do people catch cold? What causes the common cold? Medical science has learned how to control many diseases that are far more serious, but remains baffled by the common cold. Is the culprit an unfiltered virus? Is it brought on by sitting in a draft, getting chilled, or getting one’s feet wet, as is often suggested by mothers through the ages?
Colds Clean Out Mucus and Toxins
While the theories are many, there seems to be only one sure fact – people who are in perfect health don’t catch colds. My dad spent a year living in the Arctic among the Eskimos. He never had a cold, and neither did they. He had the same experience in the South Seas, in the Balkans, among the nomads of the Middle East and with the native tribes of Africa. The common factor among all these people is that they breathe pure air, eat simple natural foods and get plenty of exercise and sleep.
By following this same basic healthy lifestyle, my Dad remained free of colds even in the midst of civilization. Based on his research, he found that the common cold is Mother Nature’s and God’s method of detoxifying the body. Most people are shallow breathers. And most live on the unhealthy diet of devitalized foods. Toxins start accumulating and clogging their bodies. That’s why it’s important to live a healthy lifestyle and fast!
The Body Self-Cleanses, Repairs & Heals
When the toxicity of these accumulated poisons, mucus, etc., exceeds the body’s tolerance, the natural vital forces set up a miracle cleansing-healing (common colds) crisis. The body induces a rise in body temperature (fever) to burn up the many toxins, while others are eliminated by a heavy discharge of mucus from the nose, mouth and throat. If the toxic overload is heavy, there may be a discharge of mucus from the bowels and perhaps diarrhea.
Instead of being alarmed, be grateful that your body’s natural Vital Forces are strong enough to take command and get rid of the toxins that you have accumulated! Don’t try to block this natural healing process with antibiotics.
Work with Mother Nature. Breathe deeply and fully to supply your body with the great purifier: oxygen. Rest and fast. Do a distilled water (8 glasses daily) fast or try a fresh juice fast. It is best to take only liquids during this cleansing and healing crisis. Your amazing body will fight for its life against a great deal of abuse. When you follow Mother Nature’s and God’s Laws and live The Bragg Healthy Lifestyle you can create a painless, tireless and ageless body.
Colds and Oxygen Are Great Cleansers
If you catch cold, remember you are passing through a natural cleansing and healing crisis. Heed the warning – fast! Mother Nature is telling you: You have allowed your body to become poisoned with toxic wastes and maybe by overeating. Work with me now by fasting – to cleanse your body of these toxins. Once this cleansing crisis has passed, now keep your body clean by following my Laws of Natural Living!
Often people tell us that they have a bad case of the flu. When we ask where they got it, this is what we hear –The flu’s going around. Everyone’s got it.” We then ask, Where can we find it? We’d like to meet some flu germs! They stare at us in utter amazement. To help them out of their mental confusion, we explain that when you breathe fully, live a healthy lifestyle and eat natural foods, free from all refining, processing and chemical additives – it’s then that you can build a powerful immunity against germs, viruses and illness!
Oxygen Cleanses and Nourishes
No germ can live in freshly squeezed organic orange juice because there is nothing in pure orange juice for it to feed on. All germs, regardless of their names, are scavengers! They feed on toxic decaying matter. It’s our personal opinion, based on experience and research, that a 100% healthy, natural foods diet – in combination with the enormous amount of pure oxygen pumped into the body by the vigorous breathing exercises taught in this book – help provide a natural immunity against most infectious diseases and germs.
Oxygen is not only the energizing factor which makes it possible for the body to eliminate the putrefied matter on which germs thrive, it also exterminates the germs. As you deep breathe more oxygen into your body and nourish it with organic, healthy foods, you give your body a greater ability to ward off germs and infections! When we practice Super Power Breathing, we increase our cardiovascular respiratory power.
