Moms usually worry about medicines to treat their kids’ cough and colds. They want to give the best for their kids, so they look for clinically proven medicines with no harmful side effects. Fortunately, there are safe ways that are natural but equally effective. Here are some of them:
Stay hydrated. Cough and colds usually bring dehydration, so drinking water is important to keep fluids and flush toxins from the body. It also maintains the body’s electrolyte balance. Chicken soup also keeps you hydrated and provides electrolytes.
Hot showers. Taking hot showers does not only give hydration, but inhaling its steam also works like a natural decongestant, relieving cold symptoms. It lessens sinus pressure, moisturizes nasal passages, and soothes itchy throat. It even makes the body feel relaxed.
Eat carbohydrates. Healthy carbohydrates like natural grains, whole breads, and pasta provide the body with fuel, boosting the immune system. Moreover, carbohydrates also keep the body warm and prevent it from becoming chilled.
Avoid caffeine, salty, spicy food, and refined sugars. Caffeine, usually found in coffee, tea, and chocolate, is a psychoactive stimulant drug which dehydrates the body. As being hydrated is important to treat cough and colds, caffeine should be avoided. On the other hand, excessive intake of salty, spicy food, and refined sugars speeds up the body’s system, causing dehydration.
