There is no reason or no weather to get a common cold. Wheezing, cough, runny nose and an aching body are the symptoms and it’s horrid, even popping in medicines doesn’t help. What does help is a DIY detox bath which is really effective. What all you need? A bath tub, hot water, hydrogen peroxide (3 per cent) and about 50 gram grounded sugar. Run a hot bath, it opens up all the pores and prepares the body for cleansing.
Add 1.5 litres (or three pints) hydrogen peroxide (3 per cent) in the hot water. This oxygenates the body and helps purge toxins. It’s also antibacterial and antiviral. Add the grounded sugar, a natural anti-inflammatory that increases blood circulation and helps promote the elimination of toxins. Mind you, you will sweat, a lot. Soak in this for about 30-40 minutes. The more you sweat, the better as the sweat detoxes the body.
Try it on if you have a cold or a cough. Also, after this detox programme, drink a lot of water as your body needs all the fluids back. However, some people might be allergic to hydrogen peroxide, in case you have a sensitive skin, consult a physician before this DIY bath
