Description

Many cold symptoms are due to the body's immune system reacting to the virus. The goal of alternative therapy is to work with the body's defense mechanisms by enhancing immune function rather than suppress symptoms with nasal decongestants and analgesics. For this reason, cold symptoms may temporarily worsen when treating with natural therapies. However, the duration of the cold is usually shorter. It is not necessary to use every suggestion to treat a cold; any combination will help. The role of alternative medicine in the remedial measure of common cold is commendable. There are many different types of complementary therapies (CAM) out, and these should not be considered in isolation but as part of an overall approach to general well being. Traditionally, complementary and alternative medicine has been considered outside the realm of conventional medicine. Western medicine has focused on the acute treatment of disease and injury, whereas CAM typically promotes health and prevention of disease. Yet this distinction is changing. Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) refers to an array of healing practices and medicines that exist outside of conventional treatments. These practices are thought to provide a more natural and holistic approach to healing a variety of ailments. Many people across the globe find success in getting relief from their Cold & Flu with alternative techniques.
