The common cold, including chest cold and head cold along with seasonal flu, is caused by viruses. Use over-the-counter cold medications to relieve symptoms including a sore throat, runny nose, congestion, and cough. Symptoms of Flu are similar but include fever, headache and muscle soreness. We have a doctor here in our clinic who prescribes antiviral medications for cold and flu.
What are the symptoms of cold & flu?
The symptoms of cold & flu vary from person to person. They can include:
- A blocked or a runny nose
- A sore throat
- Watery eyes
- A headache
- More mucus than normal
What causes cold & flu?
Cold & Flu is an infection which can be caused by a virus. Strangely, it has nothing to do with cold climates! It comes from other people. It’s just when it’s cold, people tend to be closer together, and more likely to share germs.
Cold & Flu is highly contagious. When an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks, the virus will travel on droplets through the air where it can be easily picked up by the next person.
Ayurvedic Remedies for cold & flu:
- Clove Bud:
Clove bud oil is also used to help ease respiratory problems, such as a cough, colds, sinusitis, asthma, and tuberculosis. In fact, chewing on a clove bud is said to help sore throats. Antiseptic — it is applied topically to assist in addressing fungal infections, wounds, and cuts.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant. It is used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, tuberculosis, urinary bladder inflammation, kidney problems, etc. Allowing the mixture to penetrate for localized treatment is very powerful as well, and works best if the soreness is more superficial rather than deep down in the throat.
- Ginger Juice:
Although ginger is great for fighting infections, this remedy is specific for nausea and dull appetite that often accompanies illness. This remedy is sure to penetrate through the dull heaviness that accumulates in the stomach, increase the digestive force, and clear out any toxins in the gut. As an added benefit, ginger is also great for fever—it is antimicrobial & anti-inflammatory.
- Vaidya's :
