Common cold, hyperthermia

Cold sufferers who inhaled hot, humidified air for twenty to thirty minutes reported improvement in their symptoms. (British Medical Journal 298:1280-1283, May 13, 1989) This treatment has no known adverse effects if care is taken not to burn oneself, and may be repeated as often as desired. It is simple to do — merely place a pan of water on the kitchen stove and inhale the escaping steam. Drape a towel over the head and pan to capture the steam if desired. Hot saline nasal irrigations will do the same thing. Use one teaspoon of salt to one pint of water and irrigate with a small ear syringe from the pharmacy. Copyright 1989 Phylis Austin
