Home Remedies for the Common Cold

Home Remedies for the Common Cold

While there are many home remedies out there purporting to help with

the common cold, research has shown copper to be a natural way to

stop a cold.

That is because copper is naturally antimicrobial.  Meaning microbes,

such as bacteria and viruses, cannot survive contact with copper.

In fact, because of the antimicrobial effect of copper, many hospitals

have begun using copper on touch surfaces to prevent the spread of


Copper has been used in ancient times and throughout history as a

sterilizing agent. Back then, they didn’t know the mechanism of how

copper kills microbes, but we now understand.

Stop the Common Cold Naturally

Recent studies demonstrate the “contact killing” effect metallic copper

has against bacteria, yeasts, and viruses.

Which is where Dr. Doug Cornell got the idea to put copper to the test

as a remedy for the common cold.

He fashioned a smooth copper probe and rubbed the copper surface

gently in his nose for 60 seconds when he felt a cold coming on.

To his surprise, the cold never came. Again and again, he would simply

rub the copper probe in his nose when he felt a cold coming–but no

cold ever came.

Dr. Cornell shared his copper device with friends and relatives. It

worked for them too–every time.

Users were reporting incredible results simply by rubbing the copper

device gently in their nose when they noticed beginning cold


Copper’s Contact Killing Ability

By rubbing copper inside of the lower nasal cavity, harmful

bacteria and viruses are killed before they can spread through the


Copper turns out to be a natural cold remedy, which makes sense.

Copper is, in fact, the only solid surface material to receive the

registration as antimicrobial by the Environmental Protection Agency


When copper is put in contact with the nasal passage where cold viruses start,

it kills microbes in seconds.

That’s because the conductivity of the copper causes a tiny electric

charge in the microbe cell to short-circuit, which destroys the cells of

viruses and bacteria.

CopperZap: the Natural Home Remedy for

the Common Cold

After witnessing the positive reports from hundreds of early users, Dr.

Cornell decided to patent his device and put it on the market.

Called the CopperZap™ after the microbe-killing mechanism, this

simple, pure copper probe has helped thousands of users completely

stop having colds.

Over 99% of users reporting say that they

prevent colds altogether when they use CopperZap at the first sign. Doug Cornell has not had a single cold since first developing the product 7 years ago.

CopperZap users report going years without a cold:

“I just don’t get colds anymore the last 5 years,” said Chris in Vermont.

“I always use my CopperZap at the first sign of a cold. The copper works every time,”

said Allison, a nurse who first tried it 5 years ago.

Stop the Flu Before it Starts

Not only have CopperZap users found they can prevent colds, but they

even report stopping the flu as well.

One user,

Judy Kirk in Oklahoma bought 12 CopperZaps for herself and a bunch of

friends: “Some were skeptical, but no one has had a cold or flu since.”

Another CopperZap user, Diane, a Nurse in Kansas, said, “I felt the flu starting, feeling

achy and all. I used it 2 or 3 times that night and woke up feeling great.”

Research has shown the antimicrobial power of copper for killing harmful bacteria and

viruses on contact. Now, you can put this natural solution to use for you and loved ones

preventing colds and the flu.

Other Reported Benefits of CopperZap

Many who have used CopperZap have reported other benefits in addition to stopping the

cold and flu:

Mary Pickrell in Colorado said, “It opened my sinus right up. It clears my congestion. No

colds since I got it.”

Elaine in Maryland said, “I’ve had sinus problems most of my life. I felt better right


“I used it in the night and then I could breathe through my nose and sleep the rest of the

night,” reported Angie in California.

Users of CopperZap say they have stopped cold sores, sinus trouble, nighttime stuffiness,

and illness following air travel.

In addition, the CopperZap can also be applied to wounds, cuts, and abrasions to fight


Why Not Just Rely on Antibiotics?

We’ve all been there. You have a bad cold intervening with your ability to work, care for

your family, and enjoy life. So you go to your doctor.

They prescribe antibiotics to fight the cold. The problem is that antibiotics kill bacteria

but not viruses or fungus. Plus, germs develop resistance to antibiotics.

Not so with copper. Copper kills bacteria, viruses, and fungus, and, even after thousands

of years, copper remains just as lethal to harmful microbes. No microbe has ever developed resistance to copper.

By using copper for its contact killing ability, you can shut down the cold right when it is

starting. CopperZap is the all-natural with no adverse side effects solution to stop colds and flu before they start.

A Great Option for Medical Workers

CopperZap is an especially useful product for nurses, nurse practitioners, physician’s

assistants, doctors, and anyone working in hospital settings.

Medical professionals are exposed to sharply higher levels of potentially harmful and

even deadly bacteria and viruses every time they show up to work.

For this reason, it is not uncommon for medical personnel to get sick more often. What a

relief it would be to effectively stop colds from occurring naturally. That is exactly what

hundreds of medical professional CopperZap users have reported:

Physician’s Assistant, Julie, wrote, “Now I have this little magic wand, no more colds for


Nursing Student, Allison, wrote: “The idea of sticking copper in my nose seemed weird at

first, but I was getting a cold so I tried it and it worked . . . I never got the full cold! Now

I always use copper in my nose at the first sign of a cold, and it works every time.”

Another user, Judy in Oklahoma, wrote: “My group of 12 includes 2 pharmacists, a

doctor, a teacher and friends who all know each other. Some of them were skeptical but

got it because I haven’t gotten sick. No one got cold or flu since we got them. We are

exposed to a lot. Schools are full of flu, strep, colds, and flu are all going around at once.

A wonderful thing about CopperZap is you don’t ever have to buy another.”

Amazing Results for Frequent Travelers

As anyone who travels regularly knows, flying and traveling in general often leads to

getting sick. Yet, with CopperZap, frequent flyers are finding they can prevent the cold

and even the flu with this product:

L.B. from Montana wrote: “Bought one a while back for my son. He was extremely

skeptical but probably saved from 2 to 3 colds by now. He travels and used to get colds

very hard and be miserable for over a week.”

A frequent flyer, Karen, reported, “2-year CopperZap use–not a single cold since the day I

picked up 2.”

Wherever you work or spend your time, what an incredible gift to put an end to colds

altogether. Just like these travelers and countless other users, you can–with copper!

So, Can the CopperZap Really Stop the Cold?

When folks hear about the CopperZap, they are usually quite skeptical. How can

touching copper around in my nostrils with copper possibly have any effect on my cold? A

fantastic question.

First, the science behind the interaction has demonstrated the antimicrobial power of

copper to kill germs on contact. The National Institutes of Health says, “The

antimicrobial activity of copper is now well established.”

Second, with over 22,000 30,000 CopperZaps sold, over 99% of users reporting have reported completely

stopping colds–many for years running. It really works!

Of the few who take advantage of our money-back guarantee (less than 1%), some clearly

have not followed the directions correctly based on what they report. Unfortunately, for a

small fraction, about ¼ of 1%, the CopperZap does not work for them.

The best way to resolve your skepticism? Try it yourself. CopperZap LLC guarantees

their product will stop colds when used according to the instructions. If it doesn’t work

for you, you can return it for a full refund. including shipping costs.

Back To Blogging

I haven’t blogged in a while, but people say I should get back to it.

We have been very busy. We are up to over 17,000 CopperZaps sold. Word of mouth is increasing, and more past customers are reordering for gifts.

We have fielded thousands of questions about using copper to prevent colds naturally, and also flu and other problems. We have taken many great reports from customers. When they tell us CopperZap has made their lives better, that’s the most gratifying thing about this whole exciting adventure.

To meet the demand, we have grown to 10 employees. They have melded into a great team of dedicated individuals that work really well together and do all our manufacturing, marketing, order-taking, and customer service.

That leaves me no excuse not to get back to blogging.

What Is Natural Cold Prevention?

Many remedies have been tried for centuries to prevent colds naturally, everything from garlic to Echinacea tea to zinc tablets. These are natural, so they don’t carry the risks many unnatural remedies do.

The only problem is, none of them work well enough. They may lessen a cold, but they generally can’t stop it completely.

Then scientists discovered copper’s ability to kill viruses.

CopperZap is the first product that delivers just enough natural copper to the exact right spot to kill cold viruses and completely and naturally stop a cold before it starts. Copper is the best natural cold prevention.

Turns Out CopperZap Is Not Just For Colds And Flu

When we started six years ago, we thought CopperZap was just for colds and flu.

Boy were we wrong.

Almost immediately we started hearing from customers that it could help with flu, sinus trouble, congestion, and cold sores. Not everybody, but a high percentage of people with these problems said copper either helped or relieved the problem entirely.

People say it also prevents them from getting sick after airplane flights and after being around sick people. People say it stops infections in cuts and skin lesions so they can heal faster. Some say it can eliminate canker sores and finger warts.

From other reports, we have learned that copper water, which the latest Directions tell you how to make using a CopperZap, can sanitize retainers, dentures, sponges, etc. It can also reduce mold and mildew and deodorize support garments and joint braces.

Natural cold and flu prevention is still the primary target for CopperZap. But our customers have taught us copper can do a lot more than we thought!

Skepticism About Copper Is Natural

I just reread this piece I wrote over 2 year ago about why people are skeptical that copper kills germs. It is still true today.

There are many claims about copper that have no scientific support. This one claim, that copper kills germs, has massive scientific support. Just look up “antimicrobial properties of copper” and you will find hundreds of studies showing copper kills bacteria and viruses quickly on direct physical contact.

Yet the public is almost entirely unaware. And skeptical. With all the unsupported claims, it is natural for people to be dubious about the one supported claim. Some people are coming around, including those involved in testing copper touch surfaces in hospitals to reduce hospital-acquired infections, and including those who try CopperZap for preventing colds.

Unfortunately, the skepticism still keeps most people from using copper to avoid infectious illness. So they get sick, and they pass the illness along to others who also get sick, and so on and so on.

It is so unnecessary. A little knowledge could greatly reduce the spread of infectious illness and improve people’s lives, perhaps even save lives.

This little knowledge is slowly spreading. Very slowly.

Sleeping Better Without Stuffiness

A gentleman who did not want to be identified publicly recently ordered a CopperZap. He said he wanted to try it out and if it worked he would order one for his daughter. He called a week or so later and said he had used it several nights before bed, because night time stuffiness often disturbed his sleep. “It works,” he said, “It’s the best sleep I’ve had in years!” He ordered one to be sent to his daughter as a gift.

16 Flights … Not Even A Sniffle

A frequent flyer says:

“Traveled to NY and Florida in November. Two week cold upon return. Traveled to NY and PA in December. 2 week cold. Read about CopperZap and though skeptical, send Doug an email. Picked up CopperZap from Doug 2 days before next business trip. On 16 flights from January 11 to today, March 17. Used CopperZap every day whether flying or not. When traveling, 4 or 5 times per day. Not even a sniffle since January 11! And I think my seasonal Arizona spring allergies are actually not quite as bad. I am so grateful for this product! My health in general and when traveling in particular have been transformed! AND I am a total believer!”

I Am Walking Proof

A New Yorker says:

“I am usually not one to give testimonials, mainly because I am wary of false advertising. Who knows if a business peddling a product is fabricating quotes to make themselves look good? However, since purchasing your product and trying it out for several months I am walking proof that the CopperZap accomplishes what it claims. It is in only my best interest that I help spread the word about it! I live in probably one of the dirtiest, grimiest and most germ-ridden cities in America – New York City. It’s so easy to get sick here several times a year. People in my lines of work (teaching pre-school and waiting tables) are particularly prone to germs. Recently I traveled to Latin America with a touring group and there was a “bug” going around. Many fell victim, but not me! Even after multiple airplane flights, which are notorious places for catching cold, I am feeling well. My advice to anyone reading this: join the movement of wellness. Being sick sucks. Not only for you, obviously, but also for those around you. Do it! Oh and one more thing I never trust about testimonials is people who sign “Anonymous” or “Mike S.” (for example). My name is Jeb Colwell. I’m a real person who paid for the CopperZap. I’m on Facebook if you have any questions.”

This Is So Cool

Just came across an earlier email I had overlooked:

“We just got ours in the mail. I have had a freakin headache for the past two days. Mainly from the pressure from my congested sinuses. Totally blocked and sounded like I was talking with my nose plugged. Finally I get desperate and pull this thing out and use it. Within minutes, my head cleared and all the junk in my nose and throat moved (I’ll put it delicately). I am shocked, no more headache, no more congestion. This is so cool. I don’t normally buy into this stuff, but once you read about it and then use it you will be amazed.”
