Natural Home Remedies for Cold and Cough – Cough Home Remedies – Fast Relief – Flu Remedy

Hey, welcome to my video, 6 Natural Ways to
Treat the Common Cold and the Flu. Stick around until the end and I’ll give you the bad news.
But first, the good news! Almost everyone has experienced the symptoms
of the common cold. Blocked and stuffy nose, dry and inflamed throat and fever are just
a few cold symptoms. While there is no cure for the common cold, there are many ways it
can be managed. Taking cold medicine is not the only way to treat the common cold. There are natural ways to heal from this affliction.
Colds and flu are caused, or rather the symptoms are triggered, by viruses. They are immune
to most antibiotics, so treating them with medicine is often a waste of time, not to
mention that many antibiotics can be costly. Fortunately, there are natural and more effective
ways to treat colds, including the following 6 practices which have been used for centuries. • 1. Vitamin D A common and effective method is to increase
the intake of vitamin D. That particular vitamin is an antimicrobial that produces about 200
to 300 different peptides in the body which kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. The best way to increase your vitamin D levels
is to expose your skin directly to sunlight, for anywhere from 15-20 minutes per day. When
the sun’s rays hit your exposed skin, this triggers a process by which vitamin D is produced
in your body. If this is not possible or practical, vitamin
D oil capsules are readily available, and reasonably priced. A team of researchers from Children’s Hospital
of Boston conducted a study in 2009, they took blood samples from over 5,000 children
under the age of 12. They found that 1 out of 5 children in the United States had vitamin
D levels that were roughly 12% to 15% the level for children recommended by the American
Academy of Pediatrics. They also found that 2 out of 3 children had lower than recommended
levels of vitamin D in their bodies. • 2. Oregano Oil The use of oregano oil has been proven to
be effective when treating colds and flu, as well as other respiratory problems. Healers
have been using this product for centuries to treat respiratory afflictions such as coughs,
colds, the flu, sore throats and even bronchitis. Oregano oil has antiviral, antibacterial and
anti-inflammatory properties, all of which can help clear up cold symptoms. Oregano oil helps with stomach problems and
digestion, treating symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and can also reduce fevers by
triggering the production of sweat. All these symptoms can be experienced during a bout
of severe cold or flu. • 3. Ginger – Try This Healing Herb Ginger is a versatile herb that has been proven
effective in the fight against the flu virus. Like oregano oil, it helps combat symptoms
of nausea and vomiting, and it’s so effective in doing so that ginger is also used to treat
the side effects of chemotherapy. Ginger is available in capsule, powder and
extract form, and can be used in ales and teas, as well as other homemade recipes. • 4. Turn Up the Heat
When you get a cold, chicken soup and hot tea can ease your cold and flu symptoms. The
reason is the heat. As the warmth moves down your throat to your stomach, it loosens the
mucus, making it easier to cough out. • 5. Consider Supplements
A few supplements have been found to reduce a colds duration. Ask your doctor about zinc,
vitamin C, and Echinacea. Vitamin C is awesome and I find I rarely even get a cold when I
take it every day. I had a doctor prescribe it to me once and I’ve never looked back.
Tell your doctor before starting any new supplement or medication. Your doctor will make sure
it doesn’t interact with any other medicine you’re taking. • 6. Hydrate Finally, it is important to stay hydrated.
This a basic natural healing tip, and often overlooked. Dehydration can lead to dry skin
and mouth, thirst, a decrease in urination or dark-colored urine, and headaches. Don’t
wait until you are thirsty! Drink as much water as needed to prevent these conditions,
and to help you speed up your return to health from the flu and the common cold. And now the bad news: Soft drinks, coffee,
and beer don’t count as water! Caffeine and alcohol make you urinate and remove water
from your system. Hey, thanks for watching. If you enjoyed the
