Hi, The following are some of the natural remedies for cold and cough: - Add a pinch of turmeric and 1/4 tsf of black pepper powder to hot milk and drink it twice a day. - Mix 1 tsf of honey to 1 tsf of basil leaf juice; take it twice a day. - Prepare a decoction by boiling one glass of water containing 1 tsf of coriander powder, 1 tsf of pepper powder and 1/2 tsf of ginger powder; reduce it to quarter glass and take it three times a day. - Apply turmeric paste on the forehead. - Do steam inhalation twice a day by adding 1-2 drops of eucalyptus oil to hot water. - Keep 1 grain of crystal salt and 2-3 black pepper in a beetle leaf, roll it and chew it. This relieves cough. Amla is rich in vit. C and vit. C is good for cold. But if you get throat irritation when amla juice is consumed. Avoid it.

I am a smoking addict person so please tell me how can I get rid of it as I am suffering from cough and cold.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am a smoking addict person so please tell me how can I get rid of it as I am suffering from cough and cold.
Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Cold and cough takes its own time. You may avoid spicy, cold and sour things in food. Do daily pranayam as it will ease out your blocked nostrils. You may consult a doctor, he would definitely help you.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Understanding COLD:

Cold is a viral infection.
Spreads from one person to another.
As your baby grow and comes in contact with more number of people there are more chances of them getting the infection, that means more number of cough and running nose when they start going out, going to cr�che or school.
Once your baby get infection from one virus they develop immunity to that virus and never get another infection from the same virus but since there are lots of viruses they keep getting infection from other ones.
Each episode usually last for about 5-7 days but can be prolonged to around 2 weeks also.
So the usual pattern is that they are UNWELL FOR AROUND 5-7 DAYS THEN WELL FOR 2-3 DAYS AND THEY AGAIN GET COLD. So it seems like your baby is ill all the time but that is actually not the case.
IS COLD BAD OR INDICATION OF POOR IMMUNITY

This is the most commonly asked question by parents.

When a baby is born there immune system is also immature like them and one of the ways to develop immunity is exposure to germs after which your baby produces antibodies against that germ.

This sounds technical but it?s true and in simple words it means that THE ONLY WAY YOUR CHILD WILL DEVELOP IMMUNITY TO A VIRUS IS BY GETTING INFECTED BY THAT VIRUS.

As the child grows, gradually the number of cold episodes will decrease as they will gradually get immune to lots of virus.

COLD IS CAUSED OR INCREASED IN COLD WEATHER OR BY EATING CERTAIN FOOD

As you all know by now that cold is a viral infection and is not related to cold climate or cold food.

Foods like curd or orange are usually labelled as culprit but actually VITAMIN C is one of the things which is found beneficial in cold and is found in these foods.

Curd also contains good bacteria which again are found to be beneficial for small babies.

THERE IS NO ASSOCIATION BETWEEN ANY FOOD AND COLD FOUND TILL NOW IN ANY STUDIES SO NO FOOD RESTRICTION IS NEEDED WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SUFFERING FROM COLD.

TREATMENT

DO NOT TREAT ALL COUGH AND COLD. If your child is active, playful and not distressed due to his illness it is advised to avoid medicine.
Since your child will keep getting infection from various viruses if you try to treat all cold there are chances that your baby will be on some or other medication always.
Actually according to the FDA of USA and UK cough and cold medicine should not be used in kids less than 6 years old as they have not shown any beneficial results in variety of studies but actually causes lot of side effects.
NO ANTIBIOTICS SHOULD BE GIVEN FOR COMMON COLD as it is a viral infection and will not respond to antibiotics which are for bacteria.
THINGS TO DO DURING COLD

If your child has high grade fever you can give him paracetamol.
Maintain good hydration and give good amount of fluids to your baby.
You can use saline nasal spray for your baby but it has to be used in the correct way.
Since it is just normal saline it does not cause side effect and can be used for long time.
DO NOT USE MEDICATED NOSE DROPS OR NASAL DECONGESTANT FOR YOUR CHILD?S COLD.
Steam inhalation with salt and water is very beneficial as it keeps the airway moist and makes the mucous more liquid therefore easy to remove.
It also makes breathing easy for your baby. If given around 30 min to 1 hr before sleep it can help the child sleep better.
Maintain a good air circulation in the room.
During the illness there are chances that your baby?s appetite will decrease. Do not worry; let them take whatever and how much ever they want. DO NOT FORCE FEED.
COMMON COLD PREVENTION

Cold spreads via air and contaminated objects so the best way to prevent children from catching colds is to teach them proper HAND WASHING.
Make sure that your child washes their hand after coming from school or playing, before eating food and after using toilet.
If your child has a cold, it's still important to protect others from catching the cold. Teaching them to cover their mouth while coughing or sneezing or using tissues for the purpose.
RED FLAGS: Need to take your child immediately to a doctor.

High grade fever lasting for more than a day but still this alone is not an indication of using antibiotics.
Unable to feed properly or constantly vomiting.
Unusually fast breathing or noisy breathing.
Excessively sleepy and lethargic.
Constantly rubbing of the ears and crying if you touch the ear or any ear discharge.
Unable to sleep in the night.
Cold lasting for more than 2 weeks.
Presence of any rash over body
