When the cold you have goes to your lungs, there are a few things you need to know:
1. Your lungs drain debris, infection, phlegm into your lymphatic system first. You only have to cough it up when the lymphatic system is overloaded.
2. The biggest load on your lymphatic system BY FAR is the gut. The lymph drains upward on either side of the spine, collecting everything on its way. If the debris from the gut is high, the channels of drainage are overloaded when they get to the lungs and bronchial tubs. Then these systems drain much slower. So, the better your bowels move, the better your lungs will fare in an illness. Also, you can lower the debris coming out of your whole intestine by EATING MORE RAW fruits and vegetables. When you cook or process something it breaks down so that particles just leak into your lymph and blood, creating stress on all systems of the body.
3. Most of the time, the infection gets to your lungs and keeps getting to your lungs by draining down from your sinuses. The very best thing to do for this is to TREAT YOUR EARS WITH GARLIC OIL. You can make garlic oil easily in 3 days for perhaps 10-25 cents. Use a baby food jar (or something comparably sized). Cover the bottom completely with fresh pressed or finely minced garlic (leave the inner paper on as it is highest in medicine). Cover this with 3/4 inch of olive oil. Leave open on the counter for 3 days. You can cover with a cloth to keep bugs out if it is summer time. Strain out after 3 days and eat or discard the garlic. The oil will keep at room temperature for 3 months or so. Fill the ear canal with this oil and work the earlobe to get it deep inside. Plug with cotton. In severe cases change this 3-4 times per day. In less severe cases just do this at night and put a hat on.
Just a reminder, always use 8-10 (depending on size of person) tablets of calcium lactate and 2 Zypan TOGETHER each morning or anytime you feel your symptoms flaring up. This is the best broad spectrum treatment for any kind of infection because your immune system uses ionized calcium to wipe out the defenses of microorganisms. We keep sickness at bay this way all the time at our house, but we do add the occasional ginger enema the moment something seems to get out of control. Calcium Lactate, Zypan and Dr. Christopher's Lower Bowel formula are all available on this site for purchase. You can use garlic and olive oil from your local grocery store.
It is healing time!
