As beautiful as autumn may be with its colorful leaves and the last warm rays of sunshine – it is nevertheless a harbinger of the cold and wet season.
When we catch a cold, most people rely on the power of nature to combat the unloved symptoms of the infection.
Preferring herbal remedies over chemical ones is especially good for colds, but you should keep the following in mind when self-medicating:
• Medicinal plants are suitable for the prevention of mild discomfort and for the early treatment of a disease that has just appeared.
• If the cause of the discomfort or symptoms are unclear, you should always consult a doctor.
• If after three days of self-treatment there is no improvement in your symptoms or if your condition worsens, you should always consult a doctor.
• In the case of chronic diseases, you should always discuss self-treatment with your attending physician.
