Herbal Relief for Colds

Herbal relief for colds has become increasingly popular over the years

There is a growing market for natural medicine as more and more people are turning to herbal relief for colds, but sometimes we need not search much further than our own cupboards.

Herbal relief for colds has become increasingly popular over the years, and cold-fighting foods can normally be found in most households. Echinacea is just one of many natural elements that we can use to ease symptoms for colds.  Sometimes, we have to look no further than our own kitchens.

The Ancient Form of Healing

So what is herbal medicine?  Herbal medicine is an ancient form of healing, using the therapeutic qualities of plants.  Today, 80% of the world’s population rely entirely on this form of medication and the Western world is quickly reviving these methods into a lucrative market.

Herbs and plants can be used to treat most conditions including cold and influenza, digestive disorders, skin problems, and other ailments that you might want to visit your local pharmacy for.

Find Herbal Relief for Colds in Your Home

Cold and flu viruses are uncomfortable, painful, and can cause extreme fatigue and sore muscles.  Despite the discomfort, they are not often life threatening and symptoms will disappear after a few days.

Whilst some people seek prescribed drugs, many will recover after some rest, plenty of fluids and some painkillers to relieve headaches, aches and pains.  Herbal relief for colds can work well by using the very remedies of nature:

  • Honey – recognised for thousands of years for its healing powers, it was first used by the Ancient Greeks for medicinal purposes.  Today, honey is widely known for its amazing healing properties and is said to fight infection, soothe sore throats, and do wonders for your sinuses.
  • Garlic – compounds such as Allicin in garlic provide the antioxidant properties to fight colds and influenza.  Not only does Allicin make herbal relief for colds, but it is also said to prevent virus contraction in the first place.
  • Ginger – ginger is said to very good for nausea, and curing a dry, tickly cough.  Honey and ginger is a great tea to help soothe the throat.
