Twenty minutes and everything is fine! Old, but very effective way. (Love, 28 years old)

But what advises the folk healer, author of books about a healthy lifestyle Gennady Malakhov:

- If you have a cold, a viral infection or the flu, you should still consult a doctor to prescribe an individual treatment. But there are also folk remedies, which sometimes are not inferior to pharmacy medicines in terms of effectiveness. In general, prevention plays an important role, it is better to take care of health in advance than to be treated and worry about the consequences. Prevention is easy to just need to spend more time outside and take tea with lemon and ginger (for a cup of tea - a slice of lemon and three rings of ginger root 2 mm thick).

If you feel unwell, then first of all organize yourself a bed rest. Do not overeat, eat something light, such as steamed vegetables and a little curd. To fight the flu or cold, the body needs strength, and these forces are also spent on digesting food. Take tea with knotweed twice a day - this herb is rich in silicon, which makes the vessels more resilient and susceptible to treatment.

From the cold, rinse the nose with a saline solution would be best: ½ teaspoon of regular salt per cup of boiled water. Well helps inhalation of wormwood in the morning and evening: a tablespoon of dry grass for 2 liters of boiling water, cover with a towel and breathe nose and mouth. Such a remedy will also help against coughing.

To dull the pain - body aches, headache, you should starve for a while.

The temperature can be brought down with ordinary raspberry mors or with the help of urine socks. Cotton fabric should be dipped in baby urine, attached to the feet, wrapped in a bag or wrap and put on socks - the procedure should be performed overnight.This will not only reduce the temperature, but also make the skin of the feet softer and more elastic.
