Hot sex treats common cold [the cure for the common cold?]

Majority of people consider even minor throat irritation or mild fever as a good-enough excuse to isolate themselves from their loved ones.

That is understandable, of course. Up until recently, this was regarded as a logical move. Not so long ago, however, scientists were able to prove just the opposite: it is better to be sick together. This obviously does not mean that one should purposely sneeze at his/her partner. In this case, the effect will be minimal. It is important to battle the disease. And as for microbes, hot passionate kisses and good sex is something they fear the most – concluded Manfred Schedlovski, a Swiss researcher from Zurich.

In the course of his lengthy neuroimmunological experiments, the scientist arrived at the conclusion that sexual intercourse has a positive effect not only on the overall physical condition of both partners but also on their immune systems. Phagocytes are to be praised for the marvel. Phagocytes are cells that help the body rid itself of various ailments. This is how they work: once they locate an alien body, they penetrate it and trigger self-destruction.

During sexual intercourse, number of phagocytes tends to increase significantly; oftentimes, number of these cells almost doubles after orgasm. This in turn enables these cells to detect and destroy antibodies more quickly.

Shcedlovski's research results have already found support among his colleagues. Immunologist Peter Schleicher also shares the initial hypothesis of his colleague from Zurich. “Not only does sex heal our organism; it also sustains its immune system,” stated Peter Schleicher in his interview to Bild am Sonntag.

Yessir. When you're in love for the long haul, be afraid of nothing. Share a toothbrush, share a glass, share a shower, share everything else. It's proven a person that feels loved always heals faster. Mind over matter to a certain extent.

About 2350 years ago one Aristotle in his Problemata, I, 50, recommended sexual excess as beneficial against the diseases caused by phlegm. They are merely contemptible plagiarists, and ought to remain beneath noticing and quoting.

I find hot salsa and Doritos along with two asprin, a 12-hour sudafed tablet and 4000mg of vitamin C to work great.

I had a nasty cough I couldn't control and my doctor told me to try a quart of molasses and three plates of beans with every meal. I said "Doc, will that cure my cold?" He said, "No, but but you'll sure be afraid to cough."

No it's fine as long as you don't deplete your natural bodily fluids.

No sex does clear the sinuses which makes you wonder where the puddin comes from.
