Natural ingredients to prevent and cure common cold, cough

Change in weather triggers throat infection, common cold and cough. It is due to the weak immunity as our bodies are in transition phase to adapt to the change in weather. Sometimes it can give rise to certain illnesses such as common cold and cough.

Here are these easy home solutions:

Black peppercorns + honey: Crush eight peppercorns. Mix it with one tablespoon of honey. Have it in the morning and before bed. This concoction contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a natural cough suppressant.

Ginger + turmeric powder + honey: Take an inch long piece of ginger. Take half a cup of water and boil the grated ginger in it at low flame for a minute. Turn off the flame and strain it. Mix one tablespoon of honey and one-fourth teaspoon of turmeric powder in the hot ginger water. Stir well. Dink warm morning-evening.

Raw turmeric + almonds + munnakka + tulsi + milk: Take half cup of water. Grate an inch long piece of raw turmeric in it. Simmer on low flame until water remains half in the original quantity. Strain it. Add eight tulsi leaves, six to eight whole almonds, four to six munnakkas and a cup of milk in the water-turmeric concoction. Bring to a boil on high flame. Simmer on low flame for five minutes. Add one-fourth teaspoon of black pepper powder and one teaspoon of honey in it. Mix well. Let it cool a little at room temperature. Drink slightly hot twice a day. Drinking this milk before bed every day is very effective to combat seasonal cough and cold.

Bay leaf + cinnamon stick + cloves + black peppercorns + dry ginger powder: Crush all these ingredients. Add them to two cups of water. Simmer on low flame until water remains in half of its quantity. Turn off the flame. Strain it. Drink warm twice a day.

Whole almonds + black peppercorns + desi mishri: Take six to eight whole almonds (with skin), six peppercorns and a small piece of desi mishri. Chew these ingredients empty stomach every morning to prevent common cough and cold due to seasonal change.

Garlic: Garlic contains allicin. When garlic is chewed, this compound turns into allicin which boosts immunity and keeps seasonal allergies and infections at bay. Chew two cloves of garlic every morning empty stomach and say bye to common cough and cold.

Besides these natural ingredients, get plenty of sleep, eat a well-balanced diet, drink a lot of water, exercise daily and keep yourself away from stress to be safe from common cough and cold symptoms which generally take place when season changes.
