Stress Causes 1 Billion Colds Every Year; Natural Health Author Reveals How to Fight Back


Tucson, Ariz. — It’s estimated that there are as many as 1 billion cases of the common cold in the United States each year, but it’s not only exposure to germs that causes illness. In his new book “Conquering the Common Cold,” (Truth Publishing, 2006) holistic health author Mike Adams explains how stress weakens the immune system, allowing viruses to take root and develop into a cold. Adams shows readers how to reduce dietary, environmental and emotional stress to boost immune system function and overcome a cold within 48 hours. “Conquering the Common Cold” is available through Truth Publishing at

“Lack of sleep, poor nutrition, and exposure to toxic chemicals can all stress the body,” said Adams. “Stress depletes your body of vitamins and makes it so you cannot defend yourself against invading viruses. That’s why it is essential to recognize the first signs of a cold and take action to help your body fight the infection before you become sick.”

“Conquering the Common Cold” provides a step-by-step strategy for fighting colds at the first sign of infection and eliminating the virus before symptoms become bothersome. It explains how to use antiviral herbs to boost immunity and tells which foods have the highest disease-fighting properties. The book also reveals simple lifestyle modifications that speed healing.

In addition to describing how to use natural therapies to beat infections, the book explains why most common cold remedies don’t work. It analyses the effectiveness of chicken soup, fruit juice, over-the-counter medications and antibiotics among others. Readers discover food ingredients that suppress the immune system and how most medications fail to encourage healing.

“Conquering the Common Cold” is available as a softcover book or downloadable ebook at
