Summer Cold & Cough And Homeopathy
Summer cold, winter cold, what's the difference?
"Summer cold" is an expression you've likely heard, but aside from the fact that you may get a cold in the summer, is there a difference between summer colds and winter colds?
The simple answer is yes. While the symptoms of both summer and winter colds can be similar, the causes can be different. Coronaviruses are more active in winter and early spring and tend to attack the respiratory system. Rhinoviruses, on the other hand, are more active in late spring, summer and early fall. Rhinovirus symptoms tend to be more "sinus" related, including runny nose, blocked sinus, sneezing, post nasal drip and sore throat. The real challenge of a summer cold, however, is that the viruses that cause winter colds, sometimes combine with the viruses that cause summer colds. Some doctors say this can make a summer cold more difficult to treat and longer lasting.

Stroke and Paralysis is the inability of a muscle or group of muscles to move voluntarily. Muscles are controlled by messages sent from the brain that trigger movement. When part of the brain is damaged after a stroke, messaging between the brain and muscles may not work properly.
The temporary inability to move one’s own limbs or speak is known as paralysis. Paralysis is triggered by problems with the body’s nervous system and affects the functioning of muscles all over the body. This condition can affect a single limb, the right or left side of the body, or the complete body. A paralytic attack is often caused by a stroke or damage in the nervous system. It can also be caused by exposure to radiation or toxins, autoimmune diseases, tumours and spinal cord trauma. Recovery from a paralytic attack depends on the causes and the extent of the injury that triggered it. With some types of paralysis, partial or even complete, recovery is possible.
Ayurveda is an alternative system of medicine that can be quite effective when it comes to treating paralysis. Ayurveda has negligible side effects and hence can be used to treat adults and children alike. This system of medication does not look only at the physical symptoms but also the mental and spiritual well-being of the patient as well. Some ways to treat paralysis with Ayurveda are as follows:
- Vata-pacifying diet: Eat light meals that are easily digestible and pick warm foods over cold food. Avoid barley, rye and millet and include plenty of vegetables like asparagus, beets, okra and carrots in your diet. Also avoid bitter and pungent flavours, but pick food that is sweet, sour or salty to balance the body’s vata.
- Ayurvedic massage: Warm herbal oils are sued for Ayurvedic massages. These oils and the action of massaging them into the skin have a number of health benefits associated with it, including the treatment of paralytic attacks. Some Ayurvedic massages that could be beneficial to paralysed patients are abhyanga Ayurvedic massages, padabhyanga and pizhichil.
- Medication: Along with lifestyle changes, Ayurvedic medication also plays a role in the treatment of paralysis. Some popular Ayurvedic remedies for paralysis are rasnadi quath, medicated castor oil, pippali mula, vatavidhwamsana rasa, chopcheeni churna, ashwagandha churna, brihat vatachintamani rasa, ashwagandha churna and rasaraja. While some of these medicines are to be taken orally, others may need to be administered through the nostrils as part of nasyam Ayurvedic treatments and others via an enema as part of sneha vasti. Drinking 20–40 ml of radish oil twice a day and a mixture of black pepper powder, sunti and honey is also said to be beneficial in treating paralysis. However, one must keep in mind that recovery from paralysis is very slow and hence patience is a must.

Once the diagnosis is conducted the ayurvedic doctor will then prescribe you certain medicinal herbs and suitable panchkarrma therapies, which can treat the paralysis problem. Complete cure in such a solution will vary from patient to patient, however, positive changes in the patient's health can be noticed. Another, most important factor that one should take care of is that paralysis is a serious condtition and self medication should never be done, even if the medication in question is a natural herb, still it should not be consumed without consulting an ayurvedic doctor.
