Natural Cold Help

Tis the Season.

Hey folks,

I have already felt it. Some of you already felt it. Tis the Season for Colds, Sickness, and Disease. I was doing great so far this year, until Joshua started School. First Week? Yup. I got sick. My friend got sick. Our up coming fill in Host, uh, Guest Blogger, got sick. More on that soon. Point is, people get sick this time of year. Normal. Expected. Happens every year.

Now of course, you really should go see the Doctor when you do not feel well. I'm NOT a Doctor, nor do I play one on TV. I'm not an expert on Health although I post information FROM the Experts and those that understand Sickness and Disease. There are many things out there that we need to be concerned about. Bird Flu, Swine Flu, now an outbreak of Whopping Cough in California. There are REAL threats out there.

However, the most common, and most likely what you are going to face, is the Common Cold. Now if you are like me, you would rather look for more Natural Remedies than putting a bunch of man-made chemicals in your system that may actually make you feel worse. I told this story before. Last year when I was thought to have the Swine flu, the Doctors gave me this liquid codeine stuff. I took it one time. I lay down and tried to take a nap, this was like day 5, and I kept hearing things. Seriously. Laura and Selina took Josh to Miami for a Photo Shoot and I kept hearing people walking around the house. Then, I kept hearing text messages being received. No one was there, no text messages. So needless to say, I never took it again.

You know you. You know what the Common Cold feels like. So here are some tips that you could try when you start getting that old familuar feeling. According to our friends over at - How to cure yourself at home

Before you jump out of your seat to go visit a doctor, why not learn about the things around you house that can help even the simplest of medical ailments.

Home remedies have become one of the more popular approaches to healing you illness. Because no one wants to spend the time or money to go to the doctor for a nose bleed, there has been a huge turn to the practice of homeopathy and home remedies.

Home remedies or herbal remedies is a blessing from Mother Nature in disguise. Not many people know about the benefits of the things that may seem so simple to you. In fact many times herbal remedies alter things we already have around our house, and make new things that can pretty much serve as a cure to more or one illness.

The other great things about home remedies, is that it very often comes without side effects. If you are knowledgeable about the many ways in which herbal remedies and natural solutions can help you, you will often times forego spending too much for prescription or over the counter medicines.

There are cures using home remedies for almost everyone of you illnesses. For instance, the common cold is an illness we know all too well. But instead of standing in line to pick up an over the counter medicine, look no further than you cupboard to come up with a way to sure you.
Now again, if you have ANY doubts that it is more than the Common Cold, PLEASE go see the Doctor. But if you are pretty sure it's just a Cold, try some of these. I will.

For the common cold: steep two to three drops of tea tree oil in water and drink. In no time, your congested nose will feel relief. To reduce the intensity of a cold, take two teaspoons of honey, the juice of one lemon, and a spoonful of black pepper to mix and combine in a glass of lukewarm water. This concoction will reduce the consistency of a cough that is usually associated with the common cold.

Common fever usually comes with the onset of the seasonal cold. There are even a home remedies to reduce the symptoms of a fever. Mix holy basil with two grams of black pepper, and drink. You will feel as though your fever is lifting.

Nose bleeding is common among people of all ages, and it can come on suddenly without you knowing it. For a common nose bleed, place an ice cube on the bridge of your nose. This will help the blood clot faster, and your nose bleed will be end in no time.

Although many people may not think it, indigestion is also considered an illness. And sure there are plenty of over the counter cures, but home remedies are right at your fingertips. Next time you experience uncomfortable indigestion, try mixing a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water, and you will feel instant relief to this all to common illness. You can even prevent the onset of indigestion. Before eating, try mixing the juice of one lemon and a pinch of salt into a glass of water, drink slowly before a meal, and you are sure not to have a problem.

Its summer time, and a very common problem among every one is the fear of body odor. One of the most proven to work home remedies is how to cure the fear of body odor. Try mixing two to three drops of rose oil in a full tub of water and soak. Doing this regularly is proven to help perspiration.

There are plenty of home remedies that will save you a trip from the doctor this year. But it is important to note, if these home remedies are not working consult a doctor. They are the only ones licensed to tell you what your real illness is, but these home remedies can only help aide you in trying to cure your illness.

Also, another way to really be in the know is to go to a doctor so he or she can diagnose you with your illness, and then find herbal remedies to help you get better.

Once you know your illness, you can then go on to find your own remedies to help you get better. This not only save you the struggle of guessing what over the counter drugs will have the right effect, but you will also save money!
Not only will you save some money, but you will most likely feel better too. Like I said folks, tis the Season. Be smart, be well.
