Ancient healing element stops a cold before it starts
New research shows you can stop a cold in its tracks if you take one simple step with a new device when you first feel a cold coming on.
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 stop a virus. Touch it with copper. Researchers at labs and universities worldwide agree — copper is “antimicrobial.” It kills microbes, such as viruses and bacteria, just by touch.
Four thousand years ago ancient Greeks and Egyptians used copper to purify water and heal wounds. Now we know why it worked so well.
Researchers say a tiny electric charge in microbe cells gets short-circuited by the high conductance of copper. This destroys the cell in seconds.
Tests by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) show germs die fast on copper. So some hospitals switched to copper touch 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. He has never 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 percent said the copper stops their colds if used within 3 hours of the first sign. Even up to 2 days after the first sign, 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.”
People often use CopperZap for prevention, before cold signs appear. Karen Gauci, who flies often for her job, 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!” she exclaimed.
Businesswoman Rosaleen says when people are sick around her she uses CopperZap morning and night. “It saved me last holidays,” she said. “The kids had colds going around and 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! My head cleared, no more headache, no more congestion.”
Some users say copper stops nighttime stuffiness if they use it just before bed. One man said, “Best sleep I’ve had in years.”
Users also report success in stopping cold sores when used at the first sign of a tingle in the lip. One woman said, “I tried every product on the market over 20 years. Some helped a little, but this stopped it from happening in the first place.”
The handle is sculptured to fit the hand and finely textured to improve contact. Tests show it kills harmful microbes on the fingers to help prevent the spread of illness.
Copper may even help stop flu if used early and for several days. In a lab test, scientists placed 25 million live flu viruses on a CopperZap. No viruses were found alive soon after.
The EPA says the natural color change of copper does not reduce its ability to kill germs.
