7 Easy Ayurvedic home remedies for cough and cold among children | Health News

Ayurvedic remedies for cold and cough: Everyone enjoys sipping steaming hot coffee on a lovely winter day.  However, this season also carries with it a tale of woe: cold and cough. When your child has a common cold, you always worry about how to comfort them. You want to do everything you can to help your child feel better. If the condition gets worse you are sure to take your kid to a doctor but this common cold can be irritating even when mild.

According to Ayurveda, an illness might result from an imbalance in any of the three doshas—Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. In this instance, nasal congestion and cough are brought on by an excess of Pitta and Kapha in the body.

To feel better, try some easy ayurveda home remedies for cough and cold in addition to medications and cough syrups.

1. Mulethi

The Ayurvedic plant mulethi or licorice, commonly referred to as “sweet wood,” is useful for cough. Mulethi possesses expectorant qualities. The mucus lining the airways is thinned and loosened by it which lessens congestion and eases coughing.

You can take it in the form of Mulethi water or kadha. Just take 1 teaspoon of Mulethi powder and add to 1 glass of warm water. Drink this twice a day. Even though your kids may not prefer it much you can also add other spices and make a kadha.

2. Tulsi

Tulsi is referred to as “The Queen of Herbs” and “Mother Medicine of Nature” in Ayurveda. By increasing antibody synthesis, tulsi delays the onset of infections. There are cough-relieving effects of tulsi. By aiding your kid in clearing the mucus from their cough, it aids to clear the airways.

When your kids wake up in the morning, make them chew on 4–5 tulsi leaves. You can continue to offer Tulsi leaves to your kids to strengthen your immune systems.
