World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

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?)
