FAQ's For Cold and Flu


No it can't, The common cold and the flu are caused by two separate viruses, hence the treatment is different.

Cold and flu are caused by airborne viruses, most commonly the rhinovirus. It can enter your body through nose, mouth and eyes. It spreads through droplets in the air produce when someone infected with the virus sneezes, coughs or even talks

The best herbal medicine for cold is garlic extract. Garlic has natural anti-viral properties which help ease symptoms. Hydration is also a must during the recovery process.

The best herbal remedies for cold and flu include honey, Vitamin C, garlic, probiotics, elderberry, neem and ginger.

Most cold and flu remedies are easily accomplished at home, and hence don't clash with a patient's pre-existing diets. It is recommended that patients consume hot foods and liquids like soup and tea. Herbal supplements, teas and aromatherapy also help in soothing particularly painful symptoms.

An age-old question is often posed to medical professionals: how seriously should a cold be taken? The answer is seemingly obvious. Both the common cold as well as the flu are a result of viruses which cause respiratory illnesses. The common cold is usually not considered to be a serious health problem. More often than not, symptoms of a cold include:
Stuffy or runny nose
Sore throat
The best cold remedies are easily performed at home. Rituals like steam inhalation, nasal sprays, saltwater gargling, drinking hot liquids, and using hot packs for sinus pain are considered effective methods of common cold treatment, and can go a long way to reduce recovery time. Cold tablets and other OTC drugs such as antihistamines, nasal decongestants, cough suppressants and pain relievers are used as combatant medicine for cough and cold.
The flu, however, can inflict much more intense symptoms on a patient such as muscle pain, fever, headache, nausea and fatigue. Since the difference between cold and flu symptoms is very minute, there are medical tests which can be conducted within the first few days of illness to tell if the patient is suffering from the flu. Adequate rest, hot liquids, pain relievers and herbal therapy often soothe symptoms. However, those who are pregnant, having a high BMI (obese), having a weakened immune system or are young children under the age of 5 are at highest risk for developing flu complications. These complications are relatively uncommon, but include pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma flare-ups, ear infections and heart problems. A doctor may prescribe cold and flu medicine in the form of antiviral drugs like oseltamivir phosphate, zanamivir, peramivir and baloxavir marboxil.
Herbal therapy often proves to be among the best cold medicines, and can be purchased on HerbsDaily, which offers a wide range of supplements for treatment of cold and flu.
