We have to adopt the age old concept of “Prevention is better than cure”. And for this, we need to take a balanced approach towards diet. Let food be your medicine. Balanced food is the most safe and effective way to rejuvenate the body.
Common Cold conditions-
Common cold is a highly contagious, viral infection of the upper respiratory system. The symptoms include running nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, sore throat, cough fever and headache. It is a fact that people suffering from common cold do not take rest. This is a wrong approach as lack of rest further reduces immunity in such conditions. So, it is important to take rest.
Home remedies For Sore Throat:
Gargling is very important.
• Add ¼ teaspoon salt in a glass of hot water. Use this water for Gargles.
• Gargles with Triphala powder decoction are also advisable.
• In hot water, add ¼ teaspoon Turmeric powder and drink it before going to bed.
Home remedies For Headaches:
Apply paste of Nutmeg on the forehead especially in between the eyebrows.
For Running Nose and Nasal Congestion: Drink Basil Tea with a little Ginger powder.
A handful of Basil leaves, Black Pepper about 11 seeds, Ginger about 6 grams, Cinnamomum 0.5 grams and Water about 250 grams. Boil it sufficiently, then filter it, add sugar as needed and drink this homemade tea.
I hope the above home remedies for headaches, sore throat work for all.
