Cold & Flu
Cold & Flu can be determined by the type of symptoms a person may be suffering with. A cold usually consists of regular coughing and sneezing, a Sore Throat, and/or Nasal congestion. The flu tends to centre around a high temperature with extreme Fatigue, muscle aches, a Headache, diarrhoea, and/or Nausea or vomiting. Believe it or not, some of those annoying cold & flu symptoms, such as a cough, are part of the body's natural healing process and evidence that your Immune System is working hard. However with that in mind, its always good to have a little bit of extra help, which is why Natures Healthbox offer an extensive selection of natural cold & flu remedies.
Other than staying warm and getting plenty of rest, there are many natural alternatives that you may wish to consider in the fight against cold & flu. For example, Chicken Soup is a time-honoured remedy that is tried and tested, while a Hot Beverage such as a Herbal Tea may help with that irritating night-time congestion. To reduce a tickle in your throat, gargling with Apple Cider Vinegar several times a day may prove beneficial. Cranberries, Blueberries, Cinnamon, Ginger, Garlic and Yarrow all possess natural antiviral and antibiotic properties that may help with cold & flu symptoms, and Vitamin C in large amounts can greatly speed recovery. Echinacea continues to be a popular herbal extract product, which seems to provide effective Immune Support, and may therefore help to relieve the symptoms of flu and the common cold too!
