[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, ]Cough and Cold home remedies

[/FONT]To cure a cough quickly, make a paste of basil leaves(Tulasi) and honey. Have a
teaspoon of this. Or alternatively boil basil leaves in some water. Strain and
add a little honey.

To keep throat infection and cough at bay, drink basil water daily.

Mixture of honey and ginger juice is good for sore throat. Drink one
teaspoon of ginger juice mixed with an equal quantity of honey. Follow it up
with a glass of warm milk.

Mix 1 tsp of Honey with ½ tsp of grated ginger. Give this mixture to the
child to get rid of a sore throat.

For a wet cough heat ½ tsp honey and a pinch of turmeric. Let cool and then have.
To cure a cough boil ajwain leaf (omam)for 20 minutes in some water (just enough
to last for 20 minutes). Strain and give the thickish liquid .

Roast besan (gram flour) and ghee. Add this to glass of milk. This is an
ideal drink to fight cough and cold.

Soak 5 almonds overnight. To the soaked and peeled almonds add 1 peppercorn
(preferably the white variety), 1 green cardamom (choti elaichi) and 1 tsp
sugar. Grind to a paste and eat.

Steam is excellent for opening blocked nasal passages. Use plain water. Do
not add anything to it as Vicks and other such additives just block up the
passages more.

To give steam to a very small child you can use one of these methods -

Hold the child in your lap and cover both of you with a towel to retain the
steam inside. Be careful of the hot utensil and the boiling water especially for
active toddlers!
Close all windows and doors of the bathroom. Turn on the
hot water tap. Keep the child inside the bathroom for some time. You could play
with the child to keep him occupied

To stop bleeding from a cut, apply honey to it and bandage it.

Give the child a drink made of hot milk and turmeric soon after an injury.
This speeds up the recovery process.

To dislodge a fish bone stuck in your throat, suck the juice of half a lemon
