Written by Anna Henningsgaard

Cold-Eeze is a homeopathic solution torepparttar common cold. It is a zinc-based solution that can be taken as a tablet or a nasal spray. Limited studies have found thatrepparttar 149531 nasal spray reducesrepparttar 149532 duration ofrepparttar 149533 common cold to less than three days, down from an average nine days. These amazing results have lead thousands of Americans to try this new medication, with terrible results.

You see, Cold-Eeze has been found to cause anosmia, or a loss of smell and taste. Many Cold-Eeze users experience horrific, almost unbearable burning directly after applyingrepparttar 149534 nasal spray. Most nasal spray stings a little bit, so they continuerepparttar 149535 application, but within one or two daysrepparttar 149536 Cold-Eeze users who experience this pain suddenly cannot smell or taste any longer. Whenrepparttar 149537 cold passes a few days later (Cold-Eeze gets this right!) smell and taste senses have not returned. It is not until these poor patients visit a doctor that they are informed ofrepparttar 149538 devastating truth. Once anosmia sets in, those sense cannot be recovered. Cold-Eeze nasal spray permanently cripplesrepparttar 149539 sense of smell and taste.

The active ingredient in Cold-Eeze, Zincum Guconicum, is sometimes referred to as Zinc Gluconate. It was first used as a nasal spray inrepparttar 149540 1930’s as an experimental treatment for polio, but it did not improverepparttar 149541 condition of polio patients. Instead, doctors found that it often disabledrepparttar 149542 patients’ sense of smell. Unfortunately, doctors are making that discovery all over again today.
