As always at this time of year, many are effected by cold viruses and the flu. Most of us rely on the power of nature to combat the unpopular symptoms of infection. For example, thyme is an effective mucus remover, has the ability to strengthen the body’s defenses and sea buckthorn is a true vitamin power packs: they are rich in vitamin C, but also in B12, E and beta-carotene. To choose natural preference instead of chemical agents is good, especially for colds, but you should consider some details when self-medicating:
- Medicinal plants are suitable for the prevention of mild ailments and for the early treatment of a recent illness.
- In case of unclear cause of discomfort or unclear symptoms you should always consult a doctor.
- If the symptoms do not improve after three days of self-treatment or your condition worsens, you should definitely consult a doctor.
- For chronic conditions, you should always discuss self-treatment with your physician.
In any case eating healthy and drinking lots of water will help you improve and recover the fastest.
Take care of yourself and be well!
