Default Hookah if you have a cold?!

Hi Hookahpro Community,

i have a slight cold (running nose ect) right now cause its pretty cold in Germany, and somebody told me that a hookah with some mint shisha isnt bad at all for you if you have a cold, and since i didnt know why i shouldnt try it im smoking one right now. And i have to say it truely helps a bit, the mint is, as we all know, cooling and it helps me to breath. IMO this is a awsome thing so i thought i would just tell you about this effect

Have any of you ever tried Hookah while having a cold?

most mint extracts and flavorings contain menthol, which will help decongest your sinuses. Though you'd be better off with a humidifier and some vicks vapo-rub. The smoke doesnt really do you a whole lot of good to get bacteria and the like out of your body.

For colds? I never heard that. I heard and from experience think it helps with simply sore throats.

Mint is good for you in general, also helps your amune system if the shisha contains some natural mint in it.

Hookah cures all modern maladies haha.

and i've had a sore throat and smoked mint and it was cute soothing. I won't say it will help a COLD, but a sore throat, yes. a bowl of mint with a nice hot lemon-honey tea works wonders for the throat.

i usually dont smoke when i have a bad cold but i did have a remainder of a cold and smoked (mint was one of the flavors i smoked that night) and i was pretty clear the next morning. give it a try, worst that will happen is your cold gets worse, not like your gona get really sick

My advice, never smoke when u r sick ... it will make it worse ... and you won't enjoy the shisha ... just wait for a couple of days and relax and drink plenty of juices ... but never think that hookah will make you feel better even if it was mint flavored

i dont smoke while sick either. mint may be a decongestant, but smoking and carbon burn off is an irritant.

I wouldn't smoke when I have a cold, but if my nose is a little stuffed up I smoke Nakhla Mizo Mint straight. So good and the menthol cooling feeling works wonders.

you have to at least try smoking a mint when you have a cold, or you're stuffed up. i swear, it makes you feel so much better. and you wont have a stuffy nose anymore.

Mint or some kind of spearmint would be the best for clearing nose paths.

I would also imagine a lemon or orange and mint mix would work as well. If they make that flavor in a throat or cough drop it should help.

as long as it is natural flavored citrus and not synthetic, it may help a little, but i would put more on the natural mint flavor since mint oil works to open you up
