3 Effective Home Remedies To Nurse A Cold
Home remedies for cold
 Due to change in the weather, one of the most common problems that many people face is a cold. While there are many medicines and antibiotics that one can turn to for quick relief, looking at age-old home remedies can also help as they work like a charm in bringing respite.
Here are three popular home remedies that are known to nurse a common cold:

1. Black pepper tea

Black pepper contains an organic compound called piperine, which makes it a great antioxidant with antibacterial and immunity boosting properties. In most Indian households, it's a common practise to add a few sprinkling of pepper in curries and veggies to nurse a cold. The best way to reap its benefits is to make a simple pepper tea and keep sipping on it to clear congestion in the nose and throat. All you need to do is add half a spoon of black pepper in a cup of hot water, mix well and then drink. You can also add honey to it for better results.

2. Ginger, lemon and honey tonic

Active components found in ginger, such as gingerol and zingerone, have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it a great ingredient to fight a common cold. A common remedy is ginger tonic, which can be made by boiling two tablespoons of roughly chopped ginger in water, and then straining into a cup. To it, add one tablespoon lemon juice and one tablespoon honey, mix well and drink. Or you can also enjoy a strong cup of adrak chai.

3. Cinnamon drink

The aromatic spice is not just for sprucing up flavours in your food, but also comes loaded with many health benefiting properties. It acts as a natural antibiotic and is a great source of antioxidants. Because of its antimicrobial properties, cinnamon is commonly used in ancient medicine to build immunity and cure common cold. Soak a piece of cinnamon in hot water and let the flavour infuse for a few minutes. Add a spoon of honey and drink it about two-three times a day. It will help clear the sinuses too.

The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over. Most Americans, though, are reading closer to 140/90 or higher, which puts them in the high blood pressure range. That news is grim.

Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…

Natural Remedy for Arthritis

Arthritis is a group of painful and degenerative conditions marked by inflammation in the joints that causes stiffness and pain. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, gets worse with age and is caused by wear and tear over the years. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune system attacking the joints as if they were foreign tissues.
