With the recent weather change in UAE, many of us will invariably suffer from cold or even flu-like symptoms which can leave us feeling miserable. HEALTH presents five natural remedies to alleviate your symptoms.
An easy way to soothe a sore throat, freshly grated ginger in a tea can clear congestion, decrease inflammation, and boost the immune system.
Packed with antiviral properties, raw honey also includes antibacterial properties that can help calm irritated throats. Simply add two tablespoons to boiled water with a few drops of lemon juice.
Bone broth is loaded with amino acids and minerals that support immunity naturally. Sip this soup daily and be sure to cook it using fresh bones, fresh vegetables, and fresh herbs.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Cold viruses cause the acidity of your body to increase. If you feel a cold coming on, drink two to three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily to help lessen the acidity.
To boost your overall gut health and therefore, your immune system, experts suggest eating fermented foods. More than a way to deal with an on-going cold, it is also an excellent preventive measure to help you stave off future cold episodes.
