Cure for Fever, Headache, Tiredness, Cough, Sore throat Body aches, Red and sore eyes?

Influenza and common cold are among the most common ailments that affects all people at some time or the other in their lives. The condition manifests itself through symptoms like rise in body temperature, body aches, redness and soreness in the eyes, headache, irritation in the throat, accumulation of phlegm in the chest and throat cavity, and general weakness and exhaustion. The reason behind these symptoms is usually a bacterial or infection that compromises the body’s natural immune system.

There are several natural remedies that you may follow to treat these symptoms. It is important that you prevent the body temperature from rising beyond safe limits. For this purpose, soak a wad of cotton in cold water and place it over the forehead when the fever rises beyond 100 degrees. In addition, drink plenty of fluids like water and homemade fruit juices at room temperature. This helps replenish the water lost from the body in this condition, and flushes out toxins from the system, thereby providing overall relief from most of the symptoms that usually accompany cold and fever. You may also steep a few basil leaves in a cup of boiling water and drink this herbal tea while it is still warm twice every day. This cures the fever in a couple of days. In order to make the remedy more effective, you may also add a teaspoon of raw ginger juice and a few drops of honey to this tea. This will bring instant relief from sore throat and headache, and soften the mucus accumulated in the chest cavity. You should also add a teaspoon of salt to a glass of moderately hot water and gargle for 10 minutes with this solution thrice a day. This reduces the irritation and inflammation inside the throat as well as helps destroy the infection causing germs that are responsible for the condition.

For treating body aches in this condition, mix two tablespoons of vinegar in two cups of lukewarm water, soak a soft hand towel in this solution and massage the joints of the body and the limbs gently with it. If your eyes have become red and sore, splash them with cold water at regular intervals and then place some cotton wool soaked in rose water over the eyelids. This helps reduce headache too. A very popular remedy for helping the body heal naturally and regain its natural strength and immunity is to drink an infusion of a pinch of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm milk every night at bedtime.
