Keep Common Cold & Cough At Bay With These Easy Tips!

You must be having a troublesome life if you are also among those who get common cold and cough repeatedly. But did you know that if you take some precautionary measures, you can keep yousrself safe from getting infected with these irritating diseases. Here are some very effective tips to help you maintain a healthy life:

  1. Things to keep in your diet
    • Vitamins and minerals are natures' own immunity boosters and help avoid illness.
    • Ginger, chili, garlic and turmeric have characteristics that are hostile to disease-containing bacteria. Zinc and Vitamin C are great icy preventers as well.
    • Get into juicing and blend organic products, vegetables and fruits.
    • Moderate cooking is another incredible approach to intake the healthy properties of vegetables in this season.
    • Begin your day by changing your breakfast to a hot porridge sprinkled with cinnamon, granola and berries. Hot breakfast keeps you warm from within, discharges the bad bacteria and gives you energy. If in a rush, try oats. This formula is easy and healthy.
  2. Hygiene
    • Germs can hit you in case you do not wash your hands, or clean out your nose.
    • Always carry hankies and clean your nose when you sneeze to ensure your nose remains dry.
    • Make a point to discard the utilised cloth filled with bacteria as quickly as time allows. The key here is to not touch your eyes or nose, and to quickly use a hand sanitiser so that you keep away from germs.
    • Wash your hands regularly. Get a hand sanitiser additionally and utilise it whenever you sneeze or touch something you have sneezed on.
    • Beyond any doubt, you need to avoid germs by rinsing with Listerine or any other similar mouthwash.
  3. Watch your drink
    • Begin your day with a glass of water with lemon. Carry a water bottle with yourself throughout the day and keep yourself hydrated. Winters can make you feel like you are not thirsty, so make sure you drink at least six glasses of water each day.
    • Dry air, dried out bodies and frosty germs do not blend well and you will probably get a bug by not drinking enough. Hot dairy beverages are enticing; however, not as good as plain water.
    • Avoid liquor as it does not blend with cool climate and your veins become larger.

Thyme - You Must Know 5 Benefits About It!

Thyme is one of the most famous herbs from the mint family. It is a common herb present in every spice set for garnishing and flavouring of the dish. In fact, apart from its modern-day use, it had been used by Egyptians in the process of mummification as well as by the Greeks as a form of incense. However, apart from its culinary uses, it is gaining a reputation as one of the most useful ingredients with several medicinal properties. Some of these medicinal properties are highlighted below.

  1. Regulates Blood Pressure: When it comes to blood pressure, consumption of salt and maintaining a balanced level of cholesterol are the two important things to keep a lookout for. Thyme itself can be used as a substitute for salt. Though the taste would not be quite the same without a trace of salt in the dish, but at least it would benefit your health and keep a balanced level of salt and cholesterol in your body. This would help you in maintaining a balanced blood pressure and also prevent you from falling prey to any kind of heart disease or even diabetes for that matter.
  2. Controls cough and cold: If you feel that you are about to experience an attack of a cough and cold due to seasonal changes or whatever reason, do not forget to keep some thyme at hand. You can make thyme paste and rub it onto your chest. The vapours coming out of it would help in curing cough. Further, thyme oils can always be used for a chest massage or can be rubbed onto the sides of your nostrils. Moreover, drinking warm thyme infused tea helps you in recovering faster.
  3. Boosts immunity: To maintain a proper immune system the body needs, vitamins, minerals, water and various other elements. With thyme being a rich source of vitamin C and Vitamin A apart from having the benefits of iron, manganese, copper and fibre, it is not unusual to know that it boosts the immune system in an individual. Thus, thyme is often consumed in a small quantity with at least one or two dishes of the day. This makes sure that the quantity of thyme entering your body is regulated and is just enough to provide you with all the necessary elements.
  4. Acts as a disinfectant: Mould is an element present in the air which not only causes air pollution but can be fatal to human health. In fact, it hurts those with asthma even more than regular people. One of the easiest ways to get rid of moulds in the air is to regularly use thyme oil in your house. Thyme oil acts as a disinfectant and helps in reducing the concentration of moulds in the air.
  5. Used for therapeutic purposes: Carvacrol is a substance present in thyme which helps it in making a mark as an important compound in aromatherapy. Many essential oils are made of thyme essence. These essential oils are not only used on the skin for massages but also used as incense and de-stressors.

Thus, these are some of the most important uses of thyme apart from adding flavouring to some of your favourite dishes.

Viruses. Colds and the flu are the most common causes. While annoying, coughs that are “productive” get germy mucus out of your lungs when you're sick. ... That could be because coughing irritates your lungs, which leads to more coughing, which irritates your lungs, and so on

Prevention of fever is possible only to the extent that the specific cause of the fever can be prevented. Avoiding sources of infection and maintaining good hygiene practices are the best way to prevent a fever. Some ways to prevent the spread of infection include the following: Proper hygiene: Wash hands frequently. Natural cough remedies: Honey tea. A popular home remedy for coughs is mixing honey with warm water. Ginger. Ginger may ease a dry or asthmatic cough, as it has anti-inflammatory properties. Fluids. Staying hydrated is vital for those with a cough or cold. Steam..Marshmallow root. Salt-water gargle. Bromelain..Thyme. Prevention: Exclusion from childcare, preschool, school or work is not necessary, but a person with a cold should stay home until he or she feels well. Wash hands after contact with soiled tissues or with nose and throat discharges. Cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing.
