World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

34. Guest blogger Saurav shares cold remedy from India

(from my facebook friend, Saurav, he is a philosopher and stockbroker in Uttarakhand India with an interesting breathing technique as common cold remedy. NOTE: I do not necessarily recommend this advice, but am sharing it for knowledge of global common cold remedies)

“Hello Peggi,

As i promised that would share my experience with cold, though in India it’s not that cold.

But traditionally we use ginger extract (adrak ka ras) mixed with pure honey (shahad} and chew and swallow it with basil leaves (tulsi).

Second is little complicated, This is a kind of breathing technique called “bhastrika” in pranayam, as follows-

1) close the left nostril and breathe in out from right nostril as vigorously as possible for 2-10 min.

2) take deep breathe slowly from right nostril ,hold it for few seconds and close right nostril and slowly pass it out through left nostril.

3) close the right nostril and breathe in out from left nostril as vigorously as possible for 2-10 min.

4) take deep breathe slowly from left nostril ,hold it for few seconds and close left nostril and slowly pass it out through right nostril.

5) take breathe from right nostril keeping left nostril closed then close right nostril and pass it through left nostril, then inhale from left keeping right closed and exhale from right keeping left close. this is on cycle, do this vigorously for 2-10 min.
