Common Cold

Common Cold is diagnosed with sore throat and blocked nose and can result from exposure to the virus, changes in temparatures, dust and allergies.

Lemon (rich in Vitamin C) is used to treat common cold, as it increases the body resistance. Take one glass of luke warm (not hot) water, add a little lime juice and 1 tsp of honey. Consume it once or twice for 2-3 days.

Peeper powder can also be used. Take 1 tbsp of pepper powder and boil it in a cup of milk. Add a pinch of turmeric and sugar for taste. Consume once in a day for 2-3 days.

Onion juice is also very effective to cure cold. Grate a big onion, strain to have 3-4 tsp onion juice. Mix 3-4 tsp honey and mix well.

Garlic Soup is an old remedy (as suggested by my grandmother). Boil 4 cloves of garlic in a cup of water and strain.

Ginger can also be used to cure cold. Boil 10 gms of chopped ginger in a cup of water and strain. Consume the hot soup with 1/2 tsp of sugar added to it. You can even have ginger tea by adding chopped ginger before adding the tea leaves.

Turmeric is another effective remedy for curing common cold. Consume 30 mil of warm milk with 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder once / twice daily.
