How to get rid of a cold How to get rid of a cold

We usually catch colds in the autumn-winter period. But the due to changeable weather, a draft in the house, or overheating, we can get sick regardless of the season. Is it worth immediately reaching for strong drugs and antibiotics when you’re ill? You can first try proven home methods which will not only help you overcome the cold, but also strengthen your body's immunity.

 

One of the basic remedies for colds is onion syrup. Many people remember its characteristic taste and smell from their childhood. Despite its unpleasant aroma, it is very effective against colds and helps fight respiratory infections. Another natural antibiotic is garlic, which is often combined with boiled milk and honey. It is a real “explosive mixture” that has a powerful effect against colds.

Beetroot syrup

If you don't like such intense flavours, you can try preparing beet syrup. Even children enjoy its taste and you can also use it as a preventive measure since it helps strengthen your immunity. Additionally, you can eat sauerkraut, which is rich in vitamin C and also has a positive effect on our immune system.

Other remedies used to help fight colds are various spices.

The most popular are:

  • cloves - which have an antiseptic and analgesic effect;
  • cardamom - helpful when you have a wet cough, recommended for bronchitis, strengthens the body;
  • cinnamon - helps against colds, heats up the body;
  • orange peel - helps reduce headaches (used as an addition to hot drinks).

Ginger - a natural antibiotic

It is also worth mentioning ginger, which is considered to be a natural antibiotic. Ginger reduces fever, relieves headaches and throat aches, stimulates circulation, and increases concentration. It is suitable as an addition to tea.

Hibiscus tea

If you enjoy drinking tea, try a hibiscus infusion. It relieves symptoms of the cold, including fever, and strengthens the immune system. Hibiscus contains a high content of vitamin C and polyphenols (the dose is comparable to that contained in wine, however, drinking tea is much more beneficial for your health).

1. Taking antibiotics
2. Lack of rest
3. Dehydration
4. Abuse of vitamin C
5. Killing of low temperature
