Natural Remedies For The Common Cold

I see people going in and out of cough, cold, flu all the time!

My long term remedy for all issues:

Yoga Asanas, Breathing, Meditation, Healthy Flora and Fauna inside the body through Correct Nutrition.

In general drinking water infused with freshly cut lemon slices, and sprigs of mint is a great way to keep the body hydrated as well as cleansed. You can even add freshly cut strawberries. Store in a thermos and carry it around so that you can have it anytime you want!

Lemon Water with Fresh Mint

  • 2 quarts of water
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • Thinly sliced lemons (2)
  • Sprigs of Mint

Combine the above ingredients and let the flavors get infused.


My short term healthy, natural and effective remedy for cold is as stated below:

Remedy 1: In a cup of milk or water, add a pinch of Turmeric powder (especially sold at all Indian Grocery Stores), 5-6 threads of Saffron, and heat up the milk to a temperature that the mouth can handle comfortably. Add Honey. This is not only delicious but very effective. At the first onset of cold, start taking it unless you have made a habit of drinking this regularly

Remedy 2: Crush Raw Almonds and Black Peppercorns and mix them in equal quantity. Add Honey. Store it. Eat 1 tsp at a time 2-3 times per day.

Remedy 3: Make Ginger Tea: To boiling water add Grated Ginger and 1 Crushed Cardamom. Add Tea. Add Honey. Drink this yummy tea at the very onset of cold.

Remedy 4: Make Soothing Tea: To boiling water add Cinnamon Stick, a few Cloves, Cardamom. Add Honey. Drink this yummy tea to soothe and calm your throat.

Remedy 5: Make Soothing Tea: To boiling water add Cinnamon Stick, a few Cloves, Cardamom, Fennel Seeds, Black Pepper Corns. Add Honey. Drink this yummy tea to soothe and calm your throat.

Remedy 6: Herbal Tea:  (This was made by Megha for the Yoga & Mingle Event)

Ingredients (for 14 cups):
Water: 14 cups
Ginger:  a small piece, grated
Cloves:  4-5
Cardamom: 4-5
Fennel Seeds:  a pinch
Cinnamon:  Half a stick (if using full stick form) or  5-6 pieces (if using broken)
Ajwain (carom seeds):  a pinch (Optional)

Add all the above ingredients into a pot & bring it to a boil.
Sieve it into a thermos & enjoy sipping healthy caffeine free herbal tea all day!
Adding Honey & Lemon on some days makes it even more refreshing.

Since all the ingredients used are very strong in nature a little goes a long way.
