Natural Solutions For Colds And ‘Flu’

THE COMMON COLD is caused by a family of ever mutating viruses. We are easily infected by inhalation or by touching infected surfaces. As we are spending more time indoors and as our respiratory system is under pressure in the cold months, we tend to catch colds during that time of the year. The common cold will cause a cough, sneeze, sore throat and runny nose which fade in a week.

THE 'FLU' (influenza) is caused by a different virus and will last longer than the cold. It causes bad symptoms including high fever. Please note that if you are in a high risk group (the elderly, pregnant women, carers, asthmatics etc) you should speak to your pharmacist or GP about vaccination this winter.

Here are my best tips for natural protection from colds and flu this winter. These natural remedies work!

Sliced Raw Onions - first defence is a sliced raw onion in your bedroom at r night when feeling the first signs of a sore throat. For the more adventurous: finely cut up an onion and leave overnight, collect the juice in the morning and take a teaspoon (use honey to sweeten).

Rosemary and Thyme - A cough is helped by putting a teaspoon each of the herbs rosemary and thyme into a pot of boiling water and leaving it in your bedroom overnight. It fragrances your room, but importantly it helps to soothe an irritated and inflamed chest.

Herbal Teas and Soup Broth - this humble drink is hugely important when fIghting a cold. Your mucous membranes in the chest and nose are work ing overtime to expel the nasty virus invading your system, causing a runny nose. Help it by thinning the mucous. Herbal teas including peppermint, rosemary, thyme and sage are great for fIghting a cold. Drink hot broth if you have otherwise lost your appetite.

Eucalyptus Oil - I am not a mad fan of the intense smell of it, but I do love its effects. A couple of drops of eucalyptus oil on your pillow at night, on a handkerchief during the day, or even in your bathwater will open up your stuffy riose and help you breathe and clear your head. Use sparingly as it is highly effective and. can irritate if overused. Dab a couple of drops onto the temples of your head if you have a headache

People swear by the Echinacea plant as a preventative. The evidence is quite clear in support of its effects and there are many good brands available in health shops and pharmacies. However, you may prefer to count on a good multivitamin supplement.

Whichever choice you make, remember to start early (now!) and ensure you take them regularly throughout the winter.
I hope that you will not need any of above remedies but do hope that these tips come in handy this winter, should you need them... .
