Home remedies for cold symptoms

Home remedies for cold symptoms like cough, runny nose and hoarseness.

With natural home remedies, cold symptoms such as cough, dandruff and hoarseness can be treated effectively. Simple but effective home remedies were known even in our grandmothers' times. With mild complaints, medication does not have to be used immediately. Many mild to moderate complaints can of course be alleviated sensibly.

The first slight scratching in the throat and a slight feeling of illness can be the first signs of a cold. "Heating air or the cold air in autumn and winter are often the triggers," explained Peter Weber, director of the AOK Bamberg health insurance company. Because dry and warm air in the offices and apartments dry out the mucous membranes in the mouth, nose and throat. These are the ideal conditions for infections. For this reason, it is particularly important to ventilate the rooms intensively several times a day so that fresh air circulation is guaranteed. In addition, one should not forget to drink regularly, sugar-free teas and fresh mineral water are best suited.

In order to prevent colds, a balanced and vitamin-rich diet should be ensured. A lot of fruits and vegetables strengthen the body's immune system. In addition, it is advisable to exercise a lot in the fresh air, jogging and walks should not be avoided even in the cold season. Because a sufficient movement trains our defense system. Another sensible precaution is to wash your hands regularly, especially if you have been in public spaces such as train stations, restaurants or offices.

If the first symptoms of a cold are already present, natural home remedies can alleviate the symptoms. In our guides we have described numerous home remedies for hoarseness, runny nose and cough: home remedies for runny nose, home remedies for hoarseness, self-treatment for cough and home remedies for sore throats.
