Timely treatment of influenza helps prevent more serious complications from setting in.
Dietary measures for treating flu • Avoid milk and milk products such as ghee, butter and curd, as they increase secretion of the lining of the respiratory system and therefore worsen the symptoms of cold and running nose. • Drink a decoction made of about 10 mint or Tulsi (Basil) leaves in a cup of water with a teaspoon of honey at bedtime. This decoction gives relief from cough, cold and running nose. • Cut an onion into two and keep it in a glass of water for one minute. Remove the onion and allow the water to become cold. Sip this water frequently during the day. • Keep the cut onion by the side of the bed in order to inhale the smell. • Take a salad or syrup prepared from horseradish at least twice a day. This is one of the best dietary measures for control of cold and running nose.
