Homemade Remedies For Throat Infection and common colds

Acccchu...Yes the winter has just set in. People around are complaining of cold,coughs,throat infection, etc etc.
Always taking antibiotics and allopathic medication is not a good idea. Also sometimes taking antibiotics and  other allopathic medicine does not help.

Since the last few days I am suffering from throat infection. This is the first time that my throat infection has turned very very bad. I keep getting terrible ear aches. To add to this, I also got high fever of 102 C. Took an antibiotic course of 7 days, but still I feel no relief. I called my mom and she has shared all these remedies with me. The best is "Kasai/Kada".

Whenever I got cold and throat infection, my mom used to give me this "kada".
This time I called my mom and asked her the recipe. Gave this to my hubby too as he too was affected by throat infection. Thankfully, he got recovered but not me.

I thought of sharing some homemade remedies for this winter. The best is "Kasai" or "Kada". Try it out. This does not taste bitter :)

Remedy 1
Ingredients for Kasai/Kada:
1 tsp Fennel Seeds / Badishep
1 tsp Black peppercorns
1 tsp Coriander seeds
1 tsp Cumin Seeds / Jeera
1 tsp dry ginger / Soonth

Mix all the ingredients and grind to form a powder.
Add this to 2 cups of boiling water. Let it get boiled for sometime say 5-10 Min's.
Strain and sip this hot Kada.

This has to be had for 3-4 continuous days or till you feel better. This will provide quick relief for sore throats.

Remedy 2
Mix 1 tsp black pepper powder and 1 tsp dry ginger powder in 1 tablespoon honey. This has to be had twice a day.
This is also good to provide quick relief to sore throats and common cold.

Remedy 3
Salt water gargles in Luke warm water - always the best and effective.

Remedy 4
Mix turmeric powder in boiling milk along with 1 tsp sugar. Drink this hot turmeric milk to get relief from common cold.

Remedy 5
If you are a non-vegetarian, do drink hot and sour chicken soup.

Remedy 6
Simply eat honey. Honey has the natural antibiotic and can be had anytime when the throat turns bad.

Remedy 7
Just eat 2-3 raw garlic pods 5 times a day for 3 days.

Note:All these homemade remedies should be had simultaneously with other medications which have been prescribed by a doctor. I am only sharing the homemade remedies. I am not a doctor :) Please consult your doctor in case you are down with throat infection.
