Colds are the worst kind for me because there is no specific medicine to treat it, specially when the stage is at the worst. Good thing about it, it is easier to manage during the mild stages. I am sharing with you our 3 Tried And Tested Home Remedies for Coughs and Colds.
Home remedy #1 At the first sign of colds or coughs, our pedia recommends using nebulizer to free the mucus. As you catch a cold, one of your body’s defense system is creating a mucus. You need to clear it up so that your breathing won’t be compromised. If you don’t have a nebulizer, you can also try irrigation. A video below showing you how to to do it. It is also best for babies who does not know how to sneeze.
Home remedy #3 Drink plenty of water and natural juices that are sour. We love taking fresh dalandan juice when we are feeling down due to colds. Tried and tested, a glass or 2 of that juice, makes us better. As much as possible, do add sugar on your juice and avoid eating sweet foods when you are suffering from colds and coughs.
