What’s the best sick kit for a woman?
Let’s find it out together thanks to this list of the top remedies for a quick recovery.
A frequent mistake, when one has the influence, is to surrender to the lack of appetite. Not eating prolongs recovery time, making a recovery from the disease more difficult.
Furthermore, some foods help stimulate the activity of the immune system. One example is garlic, use it in food preparation. Chicken broth could, instead, help to reduce respiratory symptoms. To recover quickly, it is also essential to combat dehydration caused by fever or vomiting and diarrhea.
To replenish lost fluids and avoid worsening an already precarious state of health it is good to increase the fluids introduced during the day. Drinking water (also in the form of soups) is more important than ever and, on the contrary, it is recommended to pass by about eight glasses of water recommended when you are good at 10-12 glasses a day.
Fluids can also be taken in the form of juices, juices or centrifuged based on fresh fruit and vegetables. Citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits are particularly suitable because they are rich in vitamin C which helps reduce the duration of respiratory symptoms. They also allow you to take some useful calories to recover your strength first.
Another way to introduce liquids pleasantly, and take advantage of the beneficial properties of some plants, is to drink herbal teas; in addition to the simple chamomile, an infusion of linden and elder may help as a nasal decongestant.
Treat colds by sleeping "between two pillows”
Often the night is the most difficult time when you have a cold.
To avoid nasal congestion, place another pillow: sleeping with the slightly inclined torso will help keep the nose free.
Better if you also keep a humidifier, which avoids the annoying dryness of the nasal mucous membranes (frequent especially with the heating on) and helps to clear the nose.
Cure a cold through the magic of ginger
Ginger is anti-inflammatory, stimulating, and decongesting. It is a valid remedy in case of colds. We can use it in various ways, for example:
Herbal tea with hot water and fresh ginger, lemon juice and a pinch of cinnamon. To drink, but also to use by inhaling the steam it releases when the water is boiling
A homemade syrup, prepared with boiling water, fresh ginger and sugar or honey. It is left to cool to the desired consistency.
Treating colds with essential oils
The plants have already thought of it: the essential oils of thyme, eucalyptus, rosemary, mint, lavender and tea tree have a decongestant effect, giving quick relief to breathing.
They can be used individually or together, in a mixture of your favorites. Use the 100% pure, make sure it's written "for food use" and try them in these ways:
Aromatic vapors: boil water in a saucepan, then put ten drops of essential oil (or 10 drops of your favorite blend, which you will have prepared or will have asked for in herbal medicine); inhale the vapors, preferably with a towel on your head and your eyes closed.
Balsamic bath salts: prepare yourself with a cup of English salts to which you will add 10 drops of essential oil (or 10 drops of your favorite blend, which you will have prepared or will have asked for in herbal medicine); get ready for a hot bath, with lots of steam, add salts, and immerse yourself in healthy relaxation.
Life happens, and we all get rundown once in a while, but the best way to deal with a cold is prevention. Do things that support your immune system daily and live a healthy vibrant life.
