Video: ❶ How To Deal With A Cold
You can catch a cold at any time of the year. She does not spare either children or adults. The disease can be caused by hypothermia or a virus, but regardless of the cause, it needs treatment. Location: Location: Colds primarily affect the throat and respiratory system, which means that treatment should be to restore them. It is advisable to start therapy immediately after the first signs of the disease appear. In this case, the result can be achieved in a matter of days.
Prepare a gargle if you feel uncomfortable in your throat. It can be a solution of sea salt, which has a disinfecting effect, or a herbal decoction, which has an anti-inflammatory effect. Instead of sea salt, you can also use ordinary table salt (a teaspoon per glass of water), but then 2-3 drops of iodine must be added to the solution. Herbal decoction can be made from sage or chamomile, but if they are not available, mint will do. Gargling every hour will help clear up the infection quickly. Spread honey on a wedge of lemon and suck on it. This remedy is very effective in fighting infection, especially at the initial stage of the disease.
It is also best to start treating a common cold at the first sign of a cold. In this case, there is a high probability that nasal congestion will go away in a couple of days, bypassing the stage of abundant discharge. Flush your nose with saline or sea salt solution similar to the one you prepared for gargling. Put a drop of aloe juice or propolis water into each nasal passage.
To fight cough, use steam inhalation, a solution for which can be prepared with herbs or mineral water. Apply a warming ointment such as Dr. Mom to the chest area at night, but measure the temperature first. If it is increased, all thermal procedures are contraindicated.
Throughout the entire period of illness, drink hot tea with raspberry jam and honey, vitamin-rich fruit drinks from cranberries and lingonberries, alkaline mineral water and herbal teas. All of these drinks are great for strengthening the immune system and removing toxins from the body.
