Effective Herbal Remedies for the Common Cold

It begins with a sneeze and gradually develops into a horrible feeling with fever, a runny nose and possibly a cough. The common cold is the most common ailment that afflicts us. On average, we each come down with a cold at least a few times a year, though some of us are more unlucky than that.

Most of the cold medications such as antihistamines are designed to suppress the body’s eliminative process thus retaining the toxic matter in the tissues. This is not good and only leads to more severe colds in the future. Herbal remedies on the other hand go to the root of the problem.

The best natural cure for the common cold is a vitamin cure, specifically Vitamin C. Dr. Linus Pauling, a noble prize-winning scientist, discovered that the consistent use of this vitamin in the optimal daily amount prevents the common cold and if a cold is already present, generous doses of this vitamin will alleviate the symptoms and shorten its period. He estimated that one to two grams or 100 mg to 200 mg per day is roughly the best possible amount of this vitamin. His prescription is to ingest one or two 500 milligram tablets of vitamin C at the onset of the first symptom of the cold and continue the treatment by swallowing an additional vitamin C tablet every hour.

Other excellent herbal cures include a garlic cure, ginger cure and a turmeric cure. Garlic is antiseptic and has antispasmodic properties. Garlic soup in combination with onion should be drunk several times a day as it flushes out the system of all toxins and helps bring down fever. Boiling ginger in water and drinking the water is also recommended. Turmeric on the other hand is excellent for throat irritations and in case of a runny nose; one should inhale smoke from burning turmeric.
