The common cold is a viral infection that we have all experienced at one time or another. The symptoms can vary but basically they affect the upper respiratory tract and can cause mild to severe discomfort and symptoms. One of the important things to consider when you have a cold is what to do to deal with the symptoms.
Firstly, it’s important to understand that the discomfort you feel is the body doing its job to rid itself of the virus. The body produces mucous to assist in the cleaning process. Annoying as it may be in the moment, if you take a medication to stop the symptom, the body isn’t as efficient at cleaning itself.
Coughing is another cold symptom that has an important use. Coughing is forceful exhalation, and exhalation is how we remove much of the waste that has been locked in the lungs and tissue. I recently experienced a severe cold with coughing being the primary symptom. Not only did this assist in pushing out a ton of garbage from my lungs, it gave me an incredible core workout. My waist was visibly smaller after the few days of allowing this process.
Having a cold in never fun but when it happens, it is an opportunity to move trapped waste out of your body and to be healthier for it once on the other side.
There are many natural solutions to help deal with the symptoms, and doing Block Therapy is one of them. When you lie on the block and focus on proper exhalation, you are getting deeper faster to the areas that are congested which will assist the body in its natural process to eliminate waste.
Here is a testimonial from one of our instructors whose daughter had a cold and used the block for assistance:
My 15-year-old daughter had a cough for a week. Of course I suggested she get on the block. Finally she did, (belly, diaphragm, lower & side ribs, sternum). Five minutes after she got up she did about two big coughs where stuff came up, and that was it! Cough gone! ……Rachael Aberle
The goal is always to move the waste out as efficiently as possible. Medications tend to push the symptom back into the tissue, storing it for a later time to surface.
