The most common upper respiratory tract infections are infections of the nasal mucosa (i.e. rhinitis, or ’runny nose’), throat infections (pharyngitis) and infections of the voice box, or larynx (laryngitis). The first place that pathogens (usually viruses but sometimes bacteria) settle is the nose-throat area. The symptoms produced are practically always the same: sore throat, runny nose and cough. This is when it is important to act.
Factors that promote this type of cold include dry and damaged mucosa in cold periods, a depressed immune system, stress, tiredness and a generally unhealthy way of living. Generally speaking, these types of infection are irritating and unpleasant, but they are mostly harmless: Patients suffer from a general feeling of illness, may have a headache or pain in their joints, are tired and feel generally worn out. Frequently, in the case of throat infections, they may also have a sore throat and fever. Clear signs of a common cold include an inflamed nose and throat.
A common cold generally lasts around 7-10 days. During this period, it is important to give the body sufficient rest. The healing process may be supported by moistening the mucosa, drinking ample fluids or using inhalations and decongestants.
However, the duration of the common cold may be significantly shortened by taking the clinically proven phytotherapeutic medicine EPs® 7630 made from Pelargonium sidoides root extract.
This gets to the root of the problem by preventing the adhesion of viruses and bacteria by coating the respiratory tract with a protective film that works as a barrier. Furthermore it activates the body′s own immune system and prevents the proliferation of bacteria that have already invaded the body. EPs® 7630 thus shortens the duration of the disease and helps people to recover faster.
When a common cold gets worse
The risk of complications grows, however, without treatment or when the body is unable to heal itself. On the one hand, the viruses in the respiratory tract will multiply, infecting areas that are still healthy and, on the other, a common cold can pave the way for bacterial superinfections. A superinfection is when a viral infection builds the basis for a subsequent bacterial infection due to a weakened immune system. Should overall health not improve, or symptoms get worse, a doctor should be consulted as soon as possible.
Simple common colds can lead to:
Taking EPs® 7630 in early stages of the infection can help prevent complications and chronification.
