Medicine

Although these home-made natural medicine that I’m about to tell you are very effective for cold and flu caused by the sudden change of weather, they are also very good at boosting your immune system, which is crucial in keeping your body primed to combat COVID-19.

1 – Vitamin C

Is well known for its antioxidants and helping boost our immunity. You can find it in lemons, green vegetables, oranges, and many different fruits. Lemon juice combined with hot water can help reduce phlegm. These foods don’t act directly on colds or the flu but they do help your immune system fight them. Besides, getting enough Vitamin C can relieve upper respiratory tract infections and other illnesses.

2 – Medicine Juice of Ginger and Honey

Is one of the OLDEST home remedies used for cough and a sore throat. Also, the combination works perfectly for nausea as well. The anti-inflammatory gingerols and shaogals in ginger can kill the light rhinoviruses, which are responsible for causing cold in the first place.

Honey, you may already know, is filled with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. When you put them together, it alleviates the antimicrobial property of the mixture. A teaspoon of honey can instantly help relieve a sore throat.

Medicine

Important: DO NOT give honey to kids younger than 1 year old as it often contains botulinum spores and the infant’s immune system isn’t able to fight these off yet.

4 – Garglic as Medicine

Contains a very important compound called allicin, which is known to have antimicrobial properties, as many studies have shown. Adding garlic to your diet can help relieve cold symptoms, it is even good for tuberculosis.

Having garlic in your daily diet might even help you avoid getting sick at all. If you chew some raw garlic first thing in the morning, it helps control diabetes as well.

You can include garlic in anything that you cook to help enhance the flavor of your dishes as well as boost your immune system.

3 – Masala chai

Is a type of tea that combines adrak, black pepper, salt, and tulsi leaves which are great for fighting of the flu and most common colds. Nothing beats a piping hot cup of adrak tea when you have a blocked nose.
