Tips to beat cold, cough and boost immunity amid pollution and pandemic
With the pollution levels rising, people have started experiencing symptoms of cold, cough, flu and fever. These symptoms range from dry eyes, runny nose, sore throat, headache and nausea among other less common symptoms.
Installing your homes with air purifiers, wearing pollution masks and not sleeping outside are some of the things we can do to save ourselves from the nasty pollution.
But because you can’t completely stop going outside or install an air purifier in every room of your house, here are a few dietary and lifestyle changes that can help in reducing the ill-effects of air pollution.
Their home remedies will clear your respiratory passage and boost your immunity at the same time.
Sugarcane juice is easily available in the market. If you don’t like the juice, you can chew some raw sugarcane to reap its health benefits. It helps cleanse and detoxify your liver and gives your immune system the much-needed boost. It also reduces lethargy, improves your mood and is best when consumed in between two meals.
Also called golden milk, turmeric milk is one of the easiest home remedies to fight the ill-effects of air pollution. To prepare haldi milk, just add 1/4 teaspoon of haldi powder in a glass of milk and bring it to boil. Consume the drink lukewarm.
You can also add some saffron and jaggery to enhance the taste and increase the benefits of the drink.
Haldi is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and can speed up the recovery process during cough, cold and flu.
