Lagundex helps ease coughing and soothes stuffiness from a cold

Most parents dread the start of the rainy season because coughs and colds are common during this time of the year. Anyone who gets drenched in rain can catch a cold and coughing shortly follows. This can spread quickly through air droplets or in contact with the virus, causing kids to miss school and parents to excuse themselves from work.

Symptoms like malignant sneezing, nasal congestion, non-stop runny nose, itchy throat and general malaisse brought on by the common cold usually appear two to three days after acquiring the virus. For those with asthma, a cold can make breathing more difficult. Though most cough and colds normally go away in a few days, taking care of yourself can aid in fast recovery. Don't let a mild infection evolve into something more serious.

Here are safe, natural and equally effective ways to cure it:

Get plenty of rest. Slow down and rest the moment you notice that you’re feeling sick so that it won’t get worse. The cold will leave you achy and tired. Resting or going to bed earlier than usual helps your body direct its energy towards the immunity battle.

Blow your nose often rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. It helps clear mucus from your system. Also, blowing your nose regularly aid in eliminating mucus before it has the chance to stimulate the cough reflex. Coughing up mucus may help keep your lungs clear especially if you have asthma.

Stay hydrated. Increasing your daily water consumption can be helpful for a cough. Taking in plenty of fluids help thin out the mucus in postnasal drip and keeps the membranes moist, which can help to reduce the need to cough. Drinking water is important to keep fluids, flush toxins from the body and maintain the body’s electrolyte balance.

Eat chicken soup. Chicken soup has electrolytes, that are good for rehydration. Aside from helping you stay hydrated, it improves your immunity, it provides antioxidants that your body needs to help fight the virus.

Take hot showers. Taking hot showers does not only hydrate, 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 wheat bread and pasta provide the body with fuel, boosting the immune system. Carbohydrates keep the body warm as well.
