Some of the symptoms of the common cold are sore throat, coughing, sneezing, stuffy nose, weakness, headache, low grade fever for about a week. These symptoms are normal reactions of an activated immune system battling the enemy. The common cold is caused by many types of viruses; to prevent it we must wash our hands before eating, eat fruits and vegetables, drink water, exercise, get enough sleep and reduce stress as much as possible.
How the Nutritional Therapy Athens Clinic can help
Our main concern is to discover what is causing the frequent colds and the weakening of the immune system’s mechanisms. We record your full health history and we may recommend special functional tests which will reveal any dysfunctions of the hormonal system, the adrenals that support us when we are stressed, of course the immune system itself, as well as possible nutrient deficiencies, among others.
Personalized Nutritional Strategy
After the diagnostic assessments we lay out the individualized nutritional strategy, including special nutritional supplements and suggestions for a proper way of life and exercise. We incorporate in the dietary plan foods that help, such as unripe bananas, carrots, citrus fruits, garlic and onion, green tea. Selected amino acids, like zinc, vitamins like C, D3, A, probiotics, propolis and herbs, among others.
