Medieval common cold was potentially a terminal disease. Remedies were to prevent blood in the coughs and pains in the chest — symptoms we do not associate today with the common cold anymore, as such bad developments hardly ever happen.
Neither the ailment nor the human genome would have changed much since those times: it has been human immunity to improve, and the source for this improvement must have been in what people eat. Let us have a glimpse at a few long-known ingredients and try to reckon what their working elements could be.

To have saffron in a salty soup would encourage transcrocetinate sodium. Advisable in cases of exacerbation, it was tested centuries later to help against the low oxygen that may come with wounds and blood loss. The human body is quite able to produce remedies, if you provide the makings: it will let crocin act as a neuroprotective, saffron carboxyls to be part in bodily amides as well as chlorides, to impress the tongue of a “medicinal taste”.
The saffron recipe from writings by Sabur ibn Sahl, a ninth-century physician and pharmacist in Iran, only does not have the common salt: Medievalists.net, Medieval Cough Medicine. Rather than boil, you may pour boiling hot water on saffron and leave it immersed for a while, before adding (with the water) to a soup or another dish.
To my experience, cover your bowl: saffron comes in threads, so my preference is to have it .5 gram boiling hot parched with salt and noodles, could be instant, preferably without palm oil — I never knew why instant noodles would be made with palm oil, whereas if you need oil, sunflower would do great, and I wouldn’t be the only one willing to pay an extra dime.
After a few minutes, like three up to five, even only three slices of simple processed cheese will provide calcium enough, for the CNS to send where inflammation is, and encourage repair. Simple likewise, tomato concentrate paste will give potassium, to help the bodily inner “biotalk” on immunity. I’m usually generous on it. Mix and cover your bowl again, for a few minutes. After, virgin olive oil (my best for taste) will bring the temperature of the dish down a bit. You only never have virgin oil boiling or near the Celsius or Fahrenheit, because it wastes a lot of the goodness, so the wait is a good idea (to boil, you can use any ordinary fats). Salt to taste, but make it salty. I put salt on saffron straight, and pour boiling hot water.
The bowl is going to smell and taste “medicinal”, if you need the warning. Spices interact, so I don’t use whatever the sachet to come with instant noodles. You don’t have to gnaw on saffron threads. It is enough you get them into your stomach and digest; noodles are a nice carrier. Rumor remains, saffron was the ancient legendary Greek warrior heal from ails, or “many a trouble”, in other words. In Antiquity some people even gossiped those Greeks immortal, but today there is no requirement for the expanded hearsay anymore. Live and let live does for the line.
Everyone deserves the encouragement for a natural extra fresh transcrocetinate “inner breath” (kitchen salt is sodium chloride, NaCl), yet however good an idea it could be just to freshen up internally with saffron from time to time, things needn’t go as far as medical doses, for a pulmonary condition. Let us think what there could be of effect about garlic: its allyls, passed into the blood, lungs, and skin, become released only after several hours, says Wikipedia.
Several hours is quite some time, for the body to do its work in the lungs. Aliicin has been studied for the common cold with success. High doses might be unnecessary, since alliinase stereochemistry is part uncontrolled, giving our dear body still some more potential to interact with a range of enzymes. We can have an immune response without incorporating sulfur, especially in excess.
Here we go: best immunity comes from the gut, but cooking is going to kill the active ingredient, owing to denaturation. We need to have our garlic without boiling or drying. Having crushed it, immersed in virgin olive oil and sprinkled with salt, we can find raw garlic agreeable even after only half an hour. There are yet a few more things our body as the “natural deviser” is going to need.
Spring Flowing Colors
Human immune defense is primarily protein, and about 10% of the human genome is viral, studies say. The proportion is probably related to the acquired, natural immunity that makes people so much better off today, if to look back to the Middle Ages.
The route to acquired immunity is through protein. If the body has enough to interfere with viral binding, the virus cannot work (13:23 in the video here), so I wouldn’t say the body is always inadvertent (after the 13:23).
If 10% of the human genome could be natural immunity, the simplest idea is to provide the body with some extra protein, and in my experience it has worked, for all flu-like symptoms I ever have had after I elaborated on the long-lived recipe for beef tartare. I don’t like beef with egg yolk.
Let us look to our dish. Garlic is bathing in olive oil; smoked bacon will do great for our extra protein. We choose it absolutely fresh pink, dispose of all fat, rinse in filtered water, and cut into stripes, not to break the protein goodness with mincing and like. We do not cook it, to avoid denaturation. We may add ground cinnamon, cloves, or black pepper — for taste as well as antimicrobial efficiency, and simply have it with our garlic. The portion does not have to be big. An ice-cream dollop size will do, though you can have more if you like, it digests easy.
Naturally, we chew: part the absorption will be in the mouth. I like to chew it, whereas mince without adipose catches oxygen and changes in color very fast. More, should a virus be fond of the adipose gene, because the gene codes for protein, we know we haven’t given the microbe opportunity. We have our pork or mutton extra lean, only virgin olive oil to be allowed, plant in origin. Egg yolk could be conducive of microbial proliferation, so we do not have that either.
We yet need more, in terms of the makings: the virus has a DNA, and we may feel like boosting ours. Vitamins B are a wonderful idea. We have one 50 mg pill (forte) of B compositum slow release right after we have eaten (the label may be also B complex time release). Let us now look what works with vitamins B.
Vitamin B1 is coenzyme in catabolism of amino acids. Vitamin B2 is a must for flavoprotein reactions. Vitamin B3 is part in electrochemical proton gradients across bodily cells’ inner mitochondrial membranes. Vitamin B5 is part in genome sequencing (as that of the virus too). Vitamin B6 loves enzymes, as also above. Vitamin B7, for all its fondness of sodium, helps association with plasma membranes in platelets; the process is known as carboxylation. We bear in mind, a virus needs to get through, to replicate. B9 and B12 both partake in DNA methylation.
Our body may have just learned some new immunity, with the garlic allyl methyl sulfide to have worked its several hours over the night. In my experience, any flu-like symptoms are gone with this dish by the morning. With the asymptomatic spell I had after 2019 COVID outbreak, I took one pill B6 extra, for the possibility of enzymatic methylation: the process does not make you a carrier, whatsoever.
DNA methylation is cornerstone in human health or disease, say the NCBI. According to JAMA, 2.3 million children had developed COVID and 209 died — a statistic much lower than among adults, it would not be held for indicative of a pandemic in many other contexts — but children get vitamins to grow, and vitamins B are a prominent ingredient. Minerals and vitamins have happened to be used for placebo, yet mostly in studies on psychoactive drugs. They are not placebo in human well-being.
Parents continue to hesitate to give their kids the COVID jab central tolerance, and I do not wonder. By the way, raw garlic undeniably can pinch a bit, but if you drink milk, tea, or juice, the thing wanes very fast (you don’t need to keep the pinch in the mouth, and a small chunk can do a lot of good).
We may feel like sleeping it over, to decide on our COVID jab. Postvaccination myocarditis is a risk for all age groups, whereas “T cells only recognize antigen fragments from proteins predigested by macrophages, they cannot distinguish between a specific antigen fragment that comes from an infecting microbe and the same antigen fragment that comes from a vaccine”, say the NCBI for human Immune Response to Vaccine Antigens, and you need to see to win, to think veni, vidi, vici for own immunity. It should not be altogether impossible to think that.
“Although the immune systems of two people may respond to the same protein in a vaccine, their T cells may respond to different portions of that protein.”
They add, to prevent bodily immunity from destroying own tissues in autoimmune response, immature immune cells are thought to be destroyed in the thymus gland, owing to what is known as central tolerance. Though functionally distinct to a degree, human CNS is known for “innate / adaptive interplay” and significant T-cell and other cross-talk with regard to human peripheral defenses as well, we can read on the “central” at the link from PubMed.
However dreadful it is to think, you need to keep your eyes open: this might be the vaccinated central tolerance the evolving COVID uses to attack. People obviously remain immune past puberty, so it is possible the central tolerance becomes wider with thymus involution and administration invasive as jabs, T-cells to learn only part the virus protein and remain unable to tell between the familiar vaccine and evolved microbial patterns entire. “Familiar enough”, COVID patterns would become let through the defenses along with their new attachments. Natural immunity, as via methylation, would encode for rejection: virus evolution would not change the immune response to “bounce it away” as “non-self”.
The report here looks a confirmation on the virus ability to use the jab-induced central tolerance: “Daniels, a pulmonologist who helps set the hospital’s coronavirus policies, said he’s particularly worried about omicron’s ability to evade antibodies and infect the vaccinated — including the doctors and nurses whom Mayo desperately needs to deliver care”, ■The Washington Post.
Mr. Gąsowki was vaccinated; then he needed a respirator, having caught COVID anyway. Here in his oxygen mask, he’s happy to be recovering, RMF 24. There should be regular statistics on vaccinated infections.
Natural rejection is more or less as with failed organ transplants. Viruses are too small and unstable to end up different than disposed of, so there is nothing to worry about, with virus immune rejection. It is not the same as the body rejecting an entire organ, where you might even “shut down” and die. With virus rejection, you can expect asymptomatic processes of mildly elevated body temperature, and such have been reported with reference to COVID as well. For flu or cold, “asymptomatic” means you don’t have typical flu symptoms, cough or sneeze.
The December, 4th wave of COVID this year is estimated at potentially 60 thousand Polish, without telling the vaccinated proportion. Israeli health authority have published vaccinated Delta new cases at 50%. Stats deserve some caution, if we look at United Arab Emirates vaccination and total cases, to compare Our World In Data and Worldometers, both at tops of Internet search results. The UAE would have to borrow people from abroad, to have the unvaccinated ill.

The old truth will remain, whether you are one in a million or billion, a case is a case. It is best to avoid becoming a statistic for illness. Vaccinated breakthrough infections have been on the rise, JAMA reports. Mortality among patients with COVID-19 who require ECMO appears to be increasing, JAMA adds, it is yet unknown whether vaccinated patients who develop COVID-19 and require ECMO have a different clinical course or better outcomes than unvaccinated patients.
In short, on intensive care life support, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, ECMO, there may be no difference if you’ve had the jab or not. ECMO is of last resort for COVID-19, whereas people can eat, vaccinated or not: some only never had the hint.
South Africa gives a yet another picture. Cases there dropped by about 12 thousand in a time span from Thursday to Tuesday (Fox13). Omicron has been described as “relatively mild” (Washington Post), whereas medical facts show that COVID is better off with warmth, and the US are facing a high peak this winter, so I think if the South Africa have some extra support, be it dietary or another, no nutrient or ingredient being too ordinary to note in this context, it is their moral obligation to make it public: why is COVID milder to them, though it’s warmer there?
Jedidiah Bila decided not to have the COVID jab (video below). Commentators were critical, suggested that thousands of people had died in the USA because they did not get the vaccine, and she would be a potential threat. Did the people get dietary recommendation? Who is there to judge that natural immunity could not work, even encouraged? Mutton or fish can be good alternatives to pork (salmon or “raw” fish altogether — smoked or spiced — is human RNA friendly, to recur to the roundabouts of the 13:23 above), and it couldn’t have been that all the thousands of Americans were vegetarians or religious as devout as rather to die than eat. For such cases I do not have any recommendation, but I believe they would be few.
In India, vegetarianism became a matter of religion as well as regret on finance; had the people had more money, they could’ve freely decided if to eat fresh animal protein. The fact is, it regenerates human health best. What good god would have forbidden it? NBC has reported mass cremations.
My university years, a “friend’s friend” was trying to persuade me towards vegan food, and so it happened near winter, she was down with a cold, and I told her I wouldn’t join for reasons of immunity. It is animal protein to regenerate the human body, there is not much point disputing legal nutrition. BBC have reported an average UK adult would suffer two to five colds a year, BBC, Common Cold: Centuries Old Battle Against the Sniffles. A doctor once told me she thought I’d moved away, though it was not in England.
Note: there have been horror movies about people eating people, but this wouldn’t be immune nutrition, it would be speciate matter. Pygmy people quite possibly do show some of the chaperone discord. Pork, mutton, or salmon will make sense.
I’d rather see doctors on different occasions, as for translation or other language work, and my decision remains not to have the jab. I don’t want the central tolerance. Possibly owing to my two “rounds” of Bronchovaxom as well (years before), I have remained free of any flu or cold throughout, had only one spell a few years ago, after the COVID outbreak, 37.7 Celsius day one, around 37.5 the next, and my normal temperature, 36.6 Celsius, right next. No cough or sneeze, swab-tested negative for COVID twice, after the spell. I had my food.
Capsules as Bronchovaxom are indicated for improved function of dendritic cells, antigen-presenters in communication between mammalian innate and adaptive immune systems. Humans are mammals. I am a mammal.
“Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment”, World Health Organization has said in an overview, see the PDF. The JAMA children stats above do not provide information on vitamin intake or supplementation, so you could blame inefficient nutrition too. I don’t mean to put blame on anyone, simply such is life about stats and pandemics: you don’t hold on to one factor, if there could be more. All age groups can have vitamin supplements.
Swabs are good to test on virus presence. For immunity, you should smear a medical tester on the skin. I was skin tested after more than 20 years for my TB jab, sustained immunity. Why the skin — you do not have the antibodies, unless exposed to and influenced with the disease. If your immunity “bounces it off”, there is nothing for a pathologist to seek in the bloodstream really, and it is just the same with swabs. Skin tests have been considered the safest: I actually don’t remember where and on which of my two shoulders the test area was, as it healed completely in a time span not wider than a week (it was a busy time, and the skin area gave me no trouble).
Cedars Sinai report, “Workers who had received BCG (tuberculosis) vaccinations in the past — nearly 30% of those studied — were significantly less likely to test positive for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in their blood”.
This does not have to mean that COVID derives from TB, thus to result in joint immunity (unless it does and we only don’t know yet). Tuberculosis vaccines were devised to work a wide gamut in response, “based on induction of adaptive immune patterns endowed with long-term memory” to stimulate innate immunity, we can read from NCBI.
In simple words, you get to have specific antibodies only if the microbe makes the impression on your immunity as encoded in your DNA, long-term biological memory. If vaccinated or otherwise immune, you’re simply immune. We people don’t even realize how much of unwanted microbial influence we reject every day, to live out of oxygen tents without health problems. Human DNA is more advanced than microbial and it is able to learn. (Long-term individual memories are not the biological long-term; you don’t inherit those. Simple words again, cloning a person could not help bring up what they had said.)
My TB vaccination does not make me a superwoman and I still need to eat, but if immune to the particular agent, I would rather not have the COVID jab and expose my T cells and like to modification — whereas there is no point changing immunity while it works. More, Jedidiah Bila said only what COVID jab producers have kept on emphasizing about their vaccines: there is no 100% guarantee, you cannot claim they prevent the illness. She shouldn’t have been shunned off the air.
All in all and after all, it is natural immunity that people are going to need for COVIDs, the same as Middle Ages people did for the common cold. Some part of COVID pattern is probable for the body to learn. If the body does learn that recognition, it becomes able to reject COVID entire just with a marker, regardless of the virus evolution. It is already known that not everybody falls ill, which means some people are able to reject COVID. ABC News reported,
Some infected with the novel coronavirus never develop symptoms. Others get very sick and die. There are theories. One theory is that prior exposure to other viruses may help fight off the novel coronavirus. There are four other, far less deadly coronaviruses which cause the common cold.
It cannot be certain that natural rejection would work the same after a jab. People are individual, as NCBI reported on T-cell vaccine response above. What follows, vaccination could introduce unnecessary tolerance into efficient immune defenses. There has not been medical practice to force jabs on immune people because that could bring weakness rather than health, and to render a healthy person immunocompromised would be against the Hippocratic Oath. Doctors are not supposed to make things worse.
The mandate by George Washington to vaccinate against smallpox was different: immunity could come only via inoculation, and smallpox didn’t evolve. COVID derives from the common cold, where most people have some immunity, while COVID evolves, jabs to invade on the innate “interplay” as above. Today, compare the Polish Andrew Duda, a paragon for vaccination, who was re-tested after three doses because of COVID increased occurrence in his environment: and he turned out to be COVID positive. Not a paragon for immunity.
I am not saying you shouldn’t have the vaccine. I say, give it your conscious thought. Maybe the jab could be a “trojan” on you, however I don’t feel like going a Cassandric cliche: there are always plenty of “Cassandras” around; on the other hand, things have gone more than odd enough, with vaccines. Joe Biden mandate would allow to get vaccinated or have a swab every week.
I’d rather bring the swabs, and eat immune nutrition. After all, a dollop a week and a bowl every other or so looks reasonable for a pandemic. Vitamins B50 slow release are medically allowed even every day, but twice a week could do, if you’re not symptomatic.
These are what I have been actually having, food and vitamin, and I have no problems with my health. Another thing of dispute among medics has been, an illness without symptoms is not an illness, as you recognize illness by symptoms. An asymptomatic process could be immune progress, you’d have antibodies, and antibodies are not contagious.
The matter with Mr. Duda may have been that he didn’t have symptoms and infected people around, but he used some extra “smoother”. You shouldn’t have those (as parasympathetic cough reliefs), with lung ailment. It’s better for the lungs to clear. If it’s difficult to spit it out, don’t worry, Nature’s had it. If you swallow, it goes in the gut where your CNS and all interplay can work it out to bits. Remember to eat immune.
Asymptomatic legends came about HIV, an immunodeficiency problem, because symptoms come with immune response. COVID is a derivative of the common cold. More, has HIV really been asymptomatic, or people covered up for symptoms with means as parasympathetic? HIV was first diagnosed in narcotic user environments. Today, to target people with a needle just because they have COVID antibodies could be against the natural human process to acquire the biological long-term immunity that becomes innate.
If the thing here is not fake news, maybe HIV too “could use some” from immune nutrients. The woman cleared up: Whatever’s going on with the Esperanza patient is on a different level, the researchers say, with the woman appearing to have achieved “complete clearance of all replication-competent HIV-1, the Science Alert report. In short, the theory would remain: human DNA is the most advanced on Earth. I thought to cheer myself up once: who knows tool? : )
The UK have approved a human challenge on COVID, in pursuit of the natural (to become innate? possibly, with nutrients) immunity. Skin reactions to COVID vaccines can be morbilliform rash, pernio, pityriasis rosea, and erythema multiforme, says the US NCBI. As far as I’ve read the literature, antibodies can be also farmed; they don’t have to be for cancer, the NCBI here is only an example. The manner is still via protein. The death rate in Irish ICUs was one in four, with the November 21 wave of COVID, and Ireland’s vaccination rollout has been praised as one of the most successful, reports Wikipedia.
Pursuit of natural immunity should not be via exposure, however. Humanity have survived the bubonic without direct contact for a method. If they happened to fall ill, they fought the microbe. If they were clean of it, they simply remained clean. I use a hand gel and wear my face mask: illnesses also have been gone from this planet, as smallpox was gone in 1980, and nobody could need to live all the history, to live. Let us wrap up on remedies for the common cold.
Garlic imbued with virgin olive oil does not damage or impede the tongue muscle. Speech remains the same. Without the oil, I’d rather chop garlic and swallow it bit by bit with much liquid, but then it wouldn’t do the immediate job in the mouth and nose. Food as above does not involve any risk at all, provided you buy fresh and from certified providers, what mostly everyone does anyway. Blended directly before administration, as to avoid nutrient oxygenative change, food, vitamins, and herbs could be even tube-fed to those under intensive care, with medical supervision of course. Vacuum packaging does not really make it for me with everyday shopping products; I know I prefer usual packs also for taste (vacuum food is kind of “suffocated”), but it could be good to mix right before use for the sake of ingredient interactive capacity anyway.
Altogether, I don’t believe my food would work only for me, so if you do not try and recommend dietary remedial, you cannot honestly say you have done all that you should. If you don’t like the taste of salty saffron or fresh garlic with meats, you need to persuade yourself that not all cures are sweet: people held it against fish oil before it came in capsules. ; )
And saffron is too expensive, to think you could grow it even in a desert, it’s enough to bring flowerbeds and put up a tent (with solars?): a bit of irrigation or desert skill could do for the water supply. I’ve read you collect water in a desert around dawn, with local humidity and temperature change, but you need something to keep the water from dripping away or evaporating. The resource wasn’t secret or military, so it could be tacky and only to an extent true on human survival, but saffron does not need traditions of fertile land anyway. It grows well in flowerbeds.
(The read was that you spread over an area for the night, like a tent, animal skin, or tarpaulin today, and make a concavity, weigh that with a small stone, for some water to drip in around dawn; other would say, where you see vegetation or rocks; no need for the cookies of Ishtar : ).
Just to note, I have not always been a happy-go-lucky and altogether-healthy individual. ; ) I almost died of a lung disease around 5 years of age, before my TB and Bronchovaxom vaccinations. I don’t like gloom, but I continue to remember how it felt, to be deficient in breathing (I swallowed and tried to cheer myself up, owing to flu and antibiotic maladministration, I was told). I needed to re-learn walking, when I finally got up from bed. My knees and ankles were failing. I had to support myself with my hand on the bed to to try to get up at all. I held on to nearby objects, to make a step, the door too. Later, in my challenge on the matter, I even walked a wall a bit, to prove to myself my sense of balance was back. The wall wasn’t a private property, so I don’t see anything wrong: it is the surface under the feet, to make it. Stretching your arms maybe works for walking ropes, but for walls you can be fine just balancing on both feet. Eating “raw”, garlic, and vitamins let my lungs make full recovery, as also medically attested.
The recovery takes years, but it is good memory to feel even mellow, to breathe free. I wouldn’t risk my lungs, this is why I don’t want the COVID jab central tolerance. Otherwise, I’ve let myself jabbed, was a reasonable child with polio and other vaccinations for kids (I remember the strange name, Heine-Medina, and the conscious effort: I hate needles; you still get a dose around age 6 in Poland), as well as Rudivax, tetanus and more, tested negative for hepatitis as well, before I left Poland. I have the so-called international vax book to my name.
Feel welcome to share this post, also while sipping tea, black or roobois with mint, nigella sativa and a pinch of crushed cloves — precious for the generally antiproliferative properties of the component crategolic acid (though renamed maslinic). Of course, a drop of lemon, if you please, and switch your salt lamp on, with your Olbas cup filled. If you feel like a good night’s sleep, a spray of camphor with lavender on the upper respiratory tract areas of your chest is likely to bring the welcome cool. : )
