Charlotte - Natural Awakenings

N ew research shows you can stop a cold in its tracks if you take one simple step with a new device when you feel a cold about to start. Colds start when cold viruses get in your nose. Viruses multiply fast. If you don’t stop them early, they spread in your airways and cause misery. But scientists have found a quick way to kill a virus. Touch it with copper. Researchers at labs and universities agree, copper is “antimicrobial.” It kills microbes, such as viruses and bacteria, just by touch. That’s why ancient Greeks and Egyp- tians used copper to purify water and heal wounds. They didn’t know about viruses and bacteria, but now we do. Scientists say the high conductance of copper disrupts the electrical bal- ance in a microbe cell, destroying it in seconds. Tests by the Environmental Protec- tion Agency (EPA) show germs die fast on copper. Some hospitals tried copper for surfaces like faucets and doorknobs. This cut the spread of MRSA and other illnesses by over half, and saved lives. The strong scientific evidence gave inventor Doug Cornell an idea. When he felt a cold coming on he fashioned a smooth copper probe and rubbed it gently in his nose for 60 seconds. “It worked!” he exclaimed. “The cold went away completely.” It worked again every time he felt a cold coming on and he hasn’t had a cold since. He asked relatives and friends to try it. They said it worked for them, too, so he patented CopperZap™ and put it on the market. Soon hundreds of people had tried it and given feedback. Nearly 100% said the copper stops colds if used with- in 3 hours after the first sign. Even up to 2 days, if they still get the cold it is milder and they feel better. Users wrote things like, “It stopped my cold right away,” and “Is it supposed to work that fast?” Pat McAllister, age 70, received one as a gift and called it “one of the best presents ever. This little jewel really works.” Now thousands of users have stopped getting colds. People often use CopperZap pre- ventively. Frequent flier Karen Gauci used to get colds after crowded flights. Though skeptical, she tried it several times a day on travel days for 2 months. “Sixteen flights and not a sniffle!” Businesswoman Rosaleen says when people are sick around her she uses Cop- perZap morning and night. “It saved me last holidays,” she said. “The kids had colds going around, but not me.” Some users say it also helps with sinuses. Attorney Donna Blight had a 2-day sinus headache. When her CopperZap arrived, she tried it. “I am shocked!” she said. “My head cleared, no more headache, no more congestion.” Some say copper stops nighttime stuffiness if used just before bed. One man said, “Best sleep I’ve had in years.” Copper may even stop flu if used ear- ly and for several days. Lab technicians placed 25 million live flu viruses on a CopperZap. No viruses were found alive soon after. People have used it on cold sores and say it can completely prevent ugly outbreaks. You can also rub it gently on wounds, cuts, or lesions to combat infections. The handle is curved and finely tex- tured to improve contact. It kills germs picked up on fingers and hands to protect you and your family. Copper even kills deadly germs that have become resistant to antibiotics. If you are near sick people, a moment of handling it may keep serious infection away. It may even save a life. The EPA says copper still works even when tarnished. It kills hundreds of different disease germs so it can prevent serious or even fatal illness. CopperZap is made in the U.S. of pure copper.
