To Prevent Colds
Sources: An Epitome Of Homeopathic Healing Art
Keep the _arms_, _hands_ and _chest_ well clothed and warm.
_Affecting_ the _head_ as _catarrh_, or the pelvic regions keep the
_feet and ankles warm and dry_. Affecting joints and muscles as
Rheumatism--protect the _Spine_ (back) from colds and currents of air.
After an accidental exposure as by getting the feet wet, or being caught
in a shower, drink _bountifully_ of cold water, and take a dose of
_Nux_; followed in an hour by _Aconite_, if any chilliness is felt, or
_Copaiva_ if the head is "stuffed up."
In winter and spring when the weather is mild, but there is snow, or the
ground is damp, more clothes are necessary than when it is freezing hard
and the air is dry.
