Take Control of Cough and Cold Symptoms

|

It’s that time of year when everyone you know seems to have a sniffle. Yet cold symptoms can vary among people. You might contend with a sneezy, runny nose, while someone else deals with a hacking cough.

In homeopathy, treatment is tailored to the individual based on specific symptoms.

Homeopathy is a great option, as the therapy can be tailored to the individual. Boiron single “blue tube” medicines allow you to pinpoint the remedy that will help relieve your specific symptom.

When choosing medicine, homeopathy expert and author Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na), says to observe the most outstanding features of your cold and match with those of the medicine. You may need to switch to another one if you don’t see improvement, or if symptoms change.

“It takes practice, but once you become adroit with homeopathy, you’ll find out how well it works as an individualized treatment,” explains Calabrese.

Calabrese has a few recommendations on what singles to use to relieve common cold symptoms.

For chesty coughs, she suggests Antimonium tartaricum. It relieves a wet cough with thick phlegm and difficult expectoration.*

Kali iodatum is useful for burning nasal discharge, especially if there is a feeling of constriction at the base of the nose, describes Calabrese.* For related nasal symptoms of a runny nose alternating with periods of dryness and stinging in the nasal cavity, she says to use Natrum muriaticum.*

Another staple is Pulsatilla, which relieves non-irritating yellowish nasal discharge with dry nose at night, becoming runny during the day.*

Last but not least, Calabrese recommends Spongia tosta for croupy, barking coughs especially during cold weather.*

You can find these Boiron single medicines in a store near you, or shop online.

Definitely homeopathy is a great solution to take control of cough and cold. It is true that it takes a little long time but homeopathy is a permanent solution unlike chemical medicines. Thank you for the post.

Thanks for explaining that homeopathy is a great option to treat cold symptoms and even offers individualized treatment. Lately my husband and I have both been suffering from a cold and cough, so I’ve been looking online for info about alternative treatment methods. I hadn’t heard that homeopathy could help with our symptoms, so thanks for mentioning that here!
