Home Remedies For Colds And Flu
Colds and flu are unavoidable conditions and however hard you may try you are likely to contract cold and flu several times in your life. It is not that whenever you get colds you will have flu. Flu is an infectious disease caused by a type of virus
Blow Your Nose:
When you are suffering from colds and flu there is likely to be a buildup of mucus. You will feel a flow of mucus crowding in your nasal passage. This is discomforting. If you can blow away this you can clear the nasal passage and along with it some of the virus will also go out. So as often as you can blow your nose and clear the mucus.
Ginger is a very good anti-inflammatory element. It can cure sore throat very well. It can also clear the nasal passageway.
When you are suffering from flu your body gets dehydrated. This makes the mucus thick and it become difficult to expel it. Humidification will hydrate the body and dilute the mucus.
A gargle with salt water can bring quite a relief to the sore throat.
Nasal Irrigation:
The congestion in your sinuses and nasal passage way is the most discomforting feature of colds and flu.
Warm Liquids:
Warm liquids can help you to cough up some mucus, and breath easy
Chicken Soup:
Your grandmother was right: Chicken soup may not be a cure-all, but it’s a great choice when you’re sick.
Honey has a variety of antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Drinking honey in tea with lemon can help ease sore throat pain.
Garlic contains the compound allicin, which may have antimicrobial properties. Adding a garlic supplement to your diet might reduce the severity of cold symptoms.
Native Americans have used the herb and root of the Echinacea plant to treat infections for more than 400 years. Its active ingredients include flavonoids, chemicals that have many therapeutic effects on the body. For example, flavonoids can help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation.
Research on the herb’s effectiveness at fighting the common cold and flu has been mixed. But one review published in
Vitamin C:
Vitamin C plays an important role in your body and has many health benefits. Along with limes, oranges, grapefruits, leafy greens, and other fruits and vegetables, lemons are a good source of vitamin C.
Probiotics are “friendly” bacteria and yeast that are found in your body, some foods, and supplements. They may help keep your gut and immune system healthy.
