Most coughs and colds are caused by germs called viruses. Many different viruses can infect the nose and throat. They are passed on by coughing and sneezing the virus into the air. The common symptoms are a cough and a runny nose.
You usually don’t get a fever with a cold. If you do, it may be a sign you’ve got the flu or an infection with a bacteria.
For the first few days that you’re sick, your runny nose will be watery, but it turns thicker and darker after that. You may also get a mild cough that can last into the second week of your cold.
If not treated on time, colds and coughs, even though minor ailments, can develop into a severely irritating and dangerous disease.
Also, the dry cough can be really annoying, and uncomfortable.
The following natural remedy will help you avoid such health issues, you should boost the immune system, prevent serious health issues, colds, and flu, and treat flu and cold symptoms.
This is how to prepare the natural bomb against the cold and flu:
- 1 onion
- 1 lemon (juice)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 2 cups of water
In the boiling water put the onion into smaller pieces, around 15 mm thick. Boil them for 15 minutes, and then remove the mixture from heat, and leave it for 10 minutes to cool. Strain it and add the honey. Stir well, and add the lemon juice in the end.
Believing that a remedy is effective may make it actually work. In a study of echinacea as a cold remedy, people were told they were taking the herb, and those who believed strongly in its effects had shorter, milder colds—regardless of whether their pills were echinacea or a placebo.
