As parents we always want the best for our kids and we do everything just to make sure they are in their best condition. However, there are still instances that we don't have any control of.
Whenever any of my sons got sick, I worry a lot. I am like a spinning top looking for the bestest way to make them feel better.
Just like when there were two consecutive days of intense heat all morning til afternoon then sudden pour at night. It worried me a lot that this changing mood of weather caused mild cough to my precious son. These unexpected weather changes cause cough and cold viruses spread easily, giving flu-like symptoms similar to what you experience during rainy season.
Good thing, I am always ready for situations like this. It is always importanmt that parents are equipped with ways on how to deal on this situation before it gets worse.
If someone from your family catches summer cough and colds, here are safe, natural and equally effective ways to cure it:
- Take plenty of fluids. Aside from the summer heat, cough and colds bring dehydration. Drinking water is important to keep fluids and flush toxins from the body. This also maintains the body’s electrolyte balance. One good source of hydration and electrolytes is chicken soup. Though it may sound weird to take something hot during summer, chicken soup helps reduce inflammation and make mucus thinner.
- Rest and relax. When you notice that you’re feeling sick, do not ignore it and go on with your normal, daily routine. Slow down and rest so it won’t get worse. But if you can’t take the day off, at least try to go to bed earlier than usual.
- Hot showers. Taking hot baths can be the worst possible feeling, especially when it’s really hot outside. But its steam works like a natural decongestant which relieves cold symptoms. It lessens sinus pressure, moisturizes nasal passages and soothes itchy throat. It even makes the body feel relaxed.
- 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. Also, excessive intake of salty, spicy food and refined sugars speed up the body’s system, causing dehydration as well.
And after I gave Lagundex syrup to my son, the next day, his cough was gone. I swear to herbal formulated medications because they are very effective not only for kids but also to adults.
