No, I am not obsessed with ginger tea, it just has tons of health benefits which is why I mention it in almost all of my articles.
Boil 2 cups of water with a piece of ginger. Boil the water till half of the initial amount (one cup) is left. Drink up. Ginger tea helps with the congestion that comes with common cold. Not just that, but the anti-oxidants in ginger also strengthen your immune system.
Honey with black pepper powder
Take a teaspoon of honey, add black pepper powder in it and lick the spoon clean. Honey isn’t just delicious, it also helps fight against the bacterial infections that are usually a part and parcel of the common cold, cough and flu. This mixture is specifically useful if you’re suffering from a bad cough.
Take one cup of Luke warm water. Add 2 pinches of salt and gargle away. Spit the water out and use the rest of the water to gargle again. This helps draw out the water and bacteria in your throat and helps your sore throat recover faster.
The next time you fall prey to the common cold phenomenon, be sure to try out these home remedies. However it is also very important to consult a doctor in case your symptoms persist for a longer time.
