THE last quarter of the year is always the most dreaded period of the school calendar. Students and parents often find it tough to cope as they confront the year end examinations.
Exams are highly stressful events and one that determines where your child goes too, whether it's a good class or a good college. With so much pressure on the poor child to perform well, it's no wonder that they experience psychological stress.
Numerous studies have shown that psychological stress is associated with the tendency to catch a common cold as the stress levels increase.
Trials conducted by the Medical Research Council's Common Cold Unit of the UK suggested that a high percentage of stressed subjects were found to be vulnerable to virus infection after being given virus-infected nasal drops.
The rates of infection and colds increased correspondingly as the stress levels rose.
Alarmingly, colds are the hotbed of secondary bacterial of viral infection that may potentially lead to other complications such as middle ear infection, bronchitis, pneumonia and sinus infection. Worse, the affected individuals are deemed highly contagious.
Attentive parents do not want the kids to get sick when their examinations are just around the corner. There is help, anyway. Protect the child and keep his or her immune system up.
The good news is that for the past 50 years, German medical doctors have been prescribing a very effective herbal remedy for prevention and treatment of cold.
The key to this remedy lies in its ingredients: the herbs Thujae (white cedar) and Baptisiae (wild indingo). These two key ingredients are immune boosters which provides quick relief for first signs of cold like runny nose, sore throat or cough.
The formulation can also be taken as a preventive measure prior to the examinations and throughout the exam period.
By preventing cold, children will be physically and mentally fit to concentrate on their studies and better prepared for their examinations.
