Very interesting article on how to use the wet sock treatment to stop a cold in its tracks if you do it right when the first sign of a cold happens. I have never heard of this method before but it almost makes sense that it could help. Della Terra Wellness says that at the first throat tickle that you are getting a cold if you use this wet sock method that night when you are going to bed it will stop the cold.
Says it works because it forces your circulation to move and so moves blood through your lymph nodes which they say ” brings your immune system into hyper-drive.” It makes sense that if you can force your blood to circulate a lot better that it would help kick that cold because all the cold fighting cells that your body would be producing right then would get all over faster. I am definitely going to try this the next time I feel a cold coming on.
