91. India ZeeNews gives Common Cold Overview (part 1 of 2)

REPOST  India’s www.ZeeNews website

 

This India News site gives a health report on news of he Common cold. It’s a very straightforward, good overview of the common cold, symptoms, prevention and remedies.

It says the usual rest and fluids, but also includes “Humidified inspired air”  it doesn’t specify warm air … however. in India I believe that MOST of the air is warm already.

My favorite part is the comment left at the end.

And also the neighboring linked webpages of Ayurvedic medicine, and its list of healthy foods “not only for religious purposes”

Other countries often do not have the same concept of separating relgious beliefs from the rest of our education/information systems that many Americans believe is necessary.

Common cold recommended remedies listed here  for common cold listed are similar to ours, (no yoga breathing suggested?)

 

Common cold: Causes, symptoms and treatment

Common cold is often described as a sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, or tearing. Though, colds are very common, they are more widespread in children and decline with age. Colds are rarely dangerous to healthy adults or children, but may seldom be dangerous to infants, the elderly or other at-risk groups.

The common cold is caused by a virus and is very contagious. About 200 different types of viruses are there that cause common cold. Most cases of the common cold are mild, and most people recover from the common cold without complications. But, sometime they can lead to more serious infections and complications in some cases.

Symptoms:Symptoms of the common cold are low-grade fever, sneezing , watery eyes, runny nose, stuffy nose, body aches, headache, fatigue, sore throat, and cough.

Diagnosis:

Correct diagnosis of a cold usually means distinguishing between cold and the more serious flu, There are also other conditions that start like a cold (e.g. rare but serious whooping cough) and numerous conditions that have cold-like symptoms or flu-like symptoms. Although there are numerous different subtypes of colds, diagnosis of the specific subtype of cold is rarely performed and not usually important for treatment.

There`s no cure for the common cold currently, but there are ways to protect you from getting it.

Alternative Treatments for Common cold Alternative treatments or home remedies that have been listed in various sources as possibly beneficial for Common cold may include:

• Vitamin C
• Vitamin E
• Vitamin A
