Old School Cold Remedies

When I was growing up, my mother had millions of home remedies for everything from a cure for an earache to a salve for open wounds. Some of them really worked and some of them were just, I think, smelly placebos, so you think it worked. Here are some of the means used to use my mom to get better, if we quickly had a cold to get us.

My mother always said that tea with lemon was the best thing is for a cold, and many experts agree with her. The vitamin C in lemon strengthens the body’s immune system. They also say that it will be in warm water, which is why they do. In tea

Back in the day my mom would give my brother and I garlic soup. The soup has antiseptic properties that help the oil in the soup, open the repertory system and it helps reduce fever in the body, and by adding a little onion juice into the soup can help flush unwanted toxins from the body, but because you want to be prepared to sweat it out.

Ginger tea:
If you have a fever with a cold, the answer is tea with ginger. This does not mean a cup of tea with a teabag ginger tea. This does not have enough to make ginger is a difference. What you need to do is to cut several pieces of ginger, about a quarter of an ounce, and put it in a pot. Set bring a cup of water into the pot and bring it to a boil. Once the water is boiling, strain the pieces of ginger from the water and pour the remains into a glass of sugar for taste, and drink it.

Okra is a green vegetable, this kind of looks like a cross between a pepper and zucchini. The vegetables with mucus, which is great for soothing sore throats filled. Cut about 10 g okra and cook them in about 1 liter of water. Once the water is boiling you inhale the steam and drink the water. The water will look oily. This oil is what soothes your sore throat.

Whenever I have a stuffy nose my mother would always make us a Tamarind-pepper soup. This would immediately my nose, a river flows and my eyes tear out of control. The pepperoni open the nasal passages and cause everything to flow.

Go for the source:
All remedies hitherto ways to mitigate the effects of the cold, but this remedy to heal the entire cold should. The Bitter gourd root mixed in a past and with homey. For every 1 teaspoon of Bitter Gourd Root add 1 teaspoon of honey. Take a tablespoon of the mixture every night for 30 days to rid yourself of the cold germs and to help rebuild your immune system.

Quit all Cure All:
This really is the best home remedies that I have ever seen. Turmeric is not only from the cold in a few days go, it knocks all the symptoms such as sore throat, runny nose and congestion. Turmeric can be purchased as a powder, put half a teaspoon of turmeric in a pot with a cup of milk and bring it to a boil on a low flame. When the milk starts to boil take some good strong sniffs the steam your nose will begin almost immediately, to open, and the brew you to feel better after drinking star. Drink 2 cups a day for 3 days, and you’ll be back on your feet in no time.

These were just some old home remedies my mother and with winter approaching I hope that they help you to get happy and healthy through the winter.
