Hi, warm milk with turmeric or pepper works really well for cough when taken twice a day. Honey along with lemon has good anti-inflammation properties which soothes the throat and its better taken in the morning. Basil/tulsi leaves boiled in water and gargling salt water at least thrice a day also has good effect. Tea which is made of cinnamon and ginger once a day will alleviate the itching and pain sensation of throat. Make sure that you avoid cold foods or leftovers from refrigerator which might increase the condition. Inhaling hot air through vaporiser helps you feel better from chest and nasal blockage and clears the mucus. Avoid going out in to cold air and exposure to dust which might again increase your cough and cold. Decrease your intake of sugary foods and foods high in oil and fat which might prolong your illness.

You can take tablet zerodol-p twice daily to relieve your pain. You need to be examined to prescribe medicine for cold and cough. Consult for the same. For cold. Follow these: 1) Stay hydrated. Water, juice, clear broth or warm lemon water with honey helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration. Avoid alcohol, coffee and caffeinated sodas, which can make dehydration worse. 2) Rest. Your body needs to heal. 3)Soothe a sore throat. A saltwater gargle — 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt dissolved in an 8-ounce glass of warm water — can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. 4) Sip warm liquids. A cold remedy used in many cultures, taking in warm liquids, such as chicken soup, tea, or warm apple juice, might be soothing and might ease congestion by increasing mucus flow.

Hi lybrate-user, A sensitive nervous system lowers the ojas (energy) in the body. Ojas is the essence of all body tissues and provides strength to the nervous system and body. If you have a strong nervous system, you are able to fight against problems and carry on with your work with a healthy mind. Lowering of ojas causes migraine-like problems. Ayurvedic treatment of headache does not focus on simply alleviating the pain but aims at treating the root cause. Herbal preparations are administered to balance aggravated body energies and restore the digestive function. Diet & Lifestyle Advice / Have warm and easily digestible foods, boiled and steamed vegetables, soups, vegetable juices, porridge, brown rice and whole-wheat flour. / Eat fruits like apples, papayas, mangoes, grapes and pears. / Buttermilk, salads, and boiled rice sautéed with cinnamon, cumin seeds and garlic or asafetida are good in the daytime. / Also, 5-6 almonds or walnuts and some raisins can be eaten each day. / Avoid refined, oily, spicy, cold and stale food. / Avoid yogurt, especially at night. / Avoid working for long hours continuously; take short breaks. Have a good night’s sleep in a dark room. / Avoid overexposure to cold or hot weather. Cover your head with an umbrella, or wear a hat or cap when you go out. Home Remedies / Apply a paste of ground clay or sandalwood powder mixed with rose water for relief in burning sensation with headache. / Grind 10-12 grains of black pepper and 10-12 grains of rice with water to make it a paste. Apply this paste on affected area of the head for 15-20 minutes. / Mix ¼ teaspoon of clove powder with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil. Apply this paste on the affected area for 20-30 minutes. Hope this helps. Good luck.

5 Homeopathic Remedies To Cure Deep Chest Cough!

Come winter or even a slight change of season, and it is easy to catch a cold. With cold, it is quite normal and natural to develop a deep chest cough. However, it is to be noted that chest cough develops due to different reasons. Some are due to chest infections, while others are dry cough. Thus, for these different variations of cough, different homeopathic treatments are administered. Here is a list of some of the common types of treatments for curing deep chest cough-

  1. Pulsatilla: Pulsatilla is administered to those who have a sore throat, constant irritation in the eyes and fever. When fever is accompanied with cough and cold, it is important to treat all three symptoms, lest it might usher in a more serious disease. Homeopathy is often described as a holistic form of treatment. Through the medicines, the personality of the patient can be determined. For instance, Pulsatilla is administered on those who are soft, gentle, mild and timid and who have a fear of being abandoned and thus cling on to people.

  2. Nux Vomica: Those experiencing high levels of stress and falling prey to cough and cold with a sore throat and sharp pain while swallowing should try a dose of Nux Vomica. This is used to cure cough and cold, which block the nose, especially at night, making it troublesome for the individual to breathe. This might also cause blockage in the ear and sharp pains while trying to swallow food.

  3. Phosphorus: At times, one experiences an extreme bout of cough that is triggered through dry throat and coarse fever. This violent cough can be nerve wrecking at times and a relaxing remedy is preferred by the patient as soon as possible to soothe the irritation.

  4. Bryonia: This is the best medicine to treat dry cough that can be a symptom of a slowly approaching influenza. Such coughs occurs when an individual takes a high intake of cold drinks or due to sudden weather changes. The cough is followed by fever and dryness of the throat. It might also itch to a certain extent.

  5. Natrum Mur: It is the best treatment for a dry cough, which often causes a tingling sensation in the throat. This sensation creates irritation and often leads to sleepless nights for the patient. There is also presence of whitish mucus in such types of cough.

These are some of the most common types of homeopathic treatments for treating deep chest cough. Each cough is different in nature and origin, and hence should be treated differently as per the individual symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Hi Kedar.. It might be just because of the tearing of the mucous membrane because of the forceful coughing and sneezing... but still it is better to check properly... Till then you may take Phosphorus 30 tds for 1 day..

Hi, for cold, cough and fever 1. Try to keep body warm 2. Do not eat and drink cold food items 3. Try to avoid persons affected with cold and cough because it spreads through droplet mode by coughing and sneezing 4. Take a tablet of levocetrizine and a basic antibiotic with an expectorant cough syrup for 4 days 5. Consult through audio video for details.
