Frequest Sore Throat and Nose Congestion

alokM, 2 September 2014 18:12  this question feed

Hi Sir,

I am much alergic to cold. Even a little exposure to cold air causes sore throat and nose blocking. I have mild cough though out the year. Right from childhood I have taken many homeopathic and alopathic medicines but still I suffer from the same problem.

Please suggest me what the proper treatment for me.

In my childhood even in cold after taking bath I used to be out of home for a longer time without proper cloths. I think may be from there I started this alegic tendency to cold. This is my guess may not be correct.

Some people are more susceptible to allergies or in catching infections quickly. They may also be exposed to more virus. The body constitution of each person is unique with a combination of doshas namely Vata, pitta and kapha. So people with Kapha predominance are more likely to get cold easily. Lifestyle modifications that balances the Kapha dosha with proper diet and exercise helps to improve the resistance in getting infections or allergies.

Medicines like Talisa patradi churnam - 1tsp with honey after food thrice daily, Agastya Rasayanam - 1tsp before food twice daily can be taken for a month and then reviewed. Madu Snuhi Rasyanam -1tsp before food twice daily can be taken for 3months to improve the immunity. You can also apply Rasnadi churnam in your head after bath every day.

Eat healthy warm food and soups. Include mint, ginger, garlic, turmeric, tulsi, pepper, cinnamon, horse gram in your diet. Reduce excess sweets, salt and deep fried fatty foods. Yogasanas like Trikonasana, Dhanurasana, Padmasana, Bhujangasana, Surya namaskaram and Pranayamam like anuloma, viloma, kapalabhati are beneficial.
