Treatment of rhinitis ginger with lemon and honey
One of the most popular folk remedies in the treatment of rhinitis is ginger with honey and lemon, which not only attracts with a refreshing savory taste, but also brings to our body a loading dose of vitamins and beneficial substances that boost immunity. That is why this recipe for treating a cold and a cold at home is so popular. Ingredients for the remedy are not difficult to find, and preparation takes a few minutes. If you regularly take a ginger-honey mixture or drink a fragrant drink with lemon, a cold and a runny nose will forget the way to your home - checked and confirmed by thousands of people.
The high efficiency of ginger in combination with honey and lemon against the common cold and cold is explained by the healing action of each of the three components of this folk remedy:
Ginger contains a huge amount of vitamins, amino acids, phytoncides and other biologically active substances that have an immunity-strengthening, tonic, warming, anti-inflammatory and diaphoretic effect on the human body,
Honey is known for its richest vitamin and mineral composition - it is a real elixir of life. The treatment of rhinitis and colds at home with honey has been practiced for a long time and very successfully, so it hardly makes sense to prove once again the effectiveness and benefits of this wonderful product,
Lemon acts as the final chord in this popular recipe for a cold because it is the lemon of all the available foods that contains the highest concentration of vitamin C that is vital for a cold person. In addition, the lemon perfectly emphasizes the taste of this folk remedy for the common cold.
How to prepare a remedy for rhinitis of ginger and honey?
Fresh ginger root - 300 g
Bee Honey - 150 ml,
Lemon - 1 piece weighing 120-150 g
Clean ginger root from hard peel and rub on a fine grater. Wash the lemon, also clean, cut, remove all the bones, and chop the flesh with a blender or meat grinder, or simply chop finely with a knife. Fold the prepared ingredients into a clean glass jar with a screw cap, pour the honey, mix thoroughly and store in the refrigerator.
Fresh ginger root - about 2 cm,
Honey bee - 2 tsp,
Lemon - 1 slice,
Boiling water - 1 cup.
Peel ginger root and grate on a fine grater, you will get 2-3 teaspoons of ginger gruel. Put it in a mug, add a lemon, rub it well and fill it with boiling water. Cover the cup with a saucer and wait 25-30 minutes - during this time the drink will infuse and cool to 60-70 ° C. Now you can add honey there without fear of destroying all its healing components. Fragrant tea from cold and cold is ready!
You should turn to the first recipe without waiting for a cold and a cold: as soon as the cold season comes, prepare a jar of medication, put it in the fridge and take 1 teaspoon daily 20-30 minutes before meals. A mixture of honey, ginger and lemon can be given even to children over five years old in half a teaspoon, and if the delicacy seems to your child too specific in taste, immediately offer him a sip of sweet tea.
If you have already caught a cold, and a runny nose and a sore throat threaten to turn into a full-scale disease, go to the second prescription. Ginger-honey tea with lemon can be drunk 3-4 times a day: it perfectly tones, gives strength, relieves throat, eases nasal breathing even with a strong rhinitis and allows you to perspire properly.
When dry cough, it is recommended to combine treatment with both means, since ginger with honey acts as a mild expectorant. To enhance the healing effect, take the ginger-honey mixture sublingually, that is, hold it under the tongue and dissolve for a few minutes before swallowing.
Although this folk remedy for rhinitis and colds is completely natural and safe, it has several contraindications:

The most effective treatment of rhinitis
The radical remedy for prolonged, often recurrent and chronic rhinitis is a home procedure of washing the nose with sea salt, which came to us from the East, from the traditional culture of Indian yogis. In the homeland of the technique it is called "jala-neti." Rinsing the nose with a weak solution of sea salt is considered the most effective and popular treatment of rhinitis among knowledgeable people. It allows you not only to mechanically clean the maxillary sinuses from mucus and pus, but also to sanitize this area locally so that the inflammation stops. The chemical composition of natural sea salt is unique: it contains natural compounds that have a disinfecting and soothing effect on the nasal mucosa.
Those who first decided to resort to the treatment of rhinitis using washes, you need to remember a few important rules:
Do not try to enhance the therapeutic effect of the procedure by adding more salt to the solution. In some uncompetent sources it is proposed to put almost a whole tablespoon of sea salt in a glass of water. So you only burn the mucous membrane and aggravate the runny nose. The teaching of yoga says that the water for washing the nose should not be more salty than human blood,
Always mix the solution very thoroughly and wait until the sea salt is completely dissolved, otherwise during the procedure hard nuggets will damage the nasal mucosa,
Do not use hot water to accelerate the dissolution of salt. The optimum temperature of the solution for washing the nose - 40-42 ° C Celsius,
During the procedure, do not suck in the solution, otherwise you will choke. Water should flow freely in one nostril and flow out of the other.
Recipes washing the nose with sea salt with a cold:
Adults - 1 teaspoon of sea salt per half liter of boiled water.
Children - the concentration is two times less.
For experienced patients with chronic sinusitis, add 2 drops of iodine and soda at the tip of the knife to the basic recipe.
Treatment of rhinitis with sea salt without rinsing - you need to moisten a clean linen napkin in a solution of sea salt (1 tablespoon per glass of water) and place it on your face for 15 minutes. This will reduce the flow of the nose, ease breathing and moisten the mucous membrane.

Thuja oil at a cold
It is the thuja oil of all coniferous aromatic oils that is most often used for the treatment of rhinitis at home. It contains a lot of phytoncides, glycosides and tannins, therefore, thuja oil is an excellent natural anti-inflammatory, bactericidal and fungicidal agent. But it does not constrict blood vessels, does not reduce the amount of mucus, does not relieve swelling, therefore, it is not worth using thuja oil against the common cold as an independent and sole therapeutic agent.
Meanwhile, both the thuja oil itself and the decoction of the needles of this tree are powerful immunomodulatory agents. Regularly digging into the nose these compounds, it is theoretically possible to increase the local immunity. But it is rather a preventive measure, rather than a radical method of treating a cold. And this is the second reason why it is not possible to consider an inanimate panacea for a cold and a cold.
And the third reason is that Tui butter is, first of all, butter. What happens if you drip an oily solution that is not breathing into your nose that is clogged with mucus? The work of ciliated epithelium, already complicated by the disease, will be disturbed. The mucus will stop evacuating from the nasal cavity. And this is fraught with the accumulation of mucus in the maxillary sinuses and the transition to a runny nose to sinusitis. It is advisable to drip thuja oil into the nose only with a dry rhinitis, when the mucous membrane is thinned and inflamed, and crusts are dried on it.
Recipes for the treatment of rhinitis with thuja oil:
Oil drops. It is recommended that adults and children should be instilled with 3-4 drops of thuja oil in each nasal passage for the night, after blowing nose and clearing the nose. This is a good alternative to moisturizing the mucous membranes with saline. We emphasize once again that it is possible to drip thuja oil into the nose only with a dry rhinitis.
Drops of coniferous broth. If the runny nose is very strong, and is accompanied by copious flow of mucus, coniferous broth is recommended instead of oil. For 1 tablespoon of pine needles you will need 500 ml of boiling water. Insist the decoction in a sealed container until it cools to room temperature, and then pour 3-4 drops into each nostril into a previously cleansed nose.
Contraindications and side effects. Coniferous aromatic oils, like any other, can cause severe allergies in young children. The baby's cheeks are covered with scarlet scab, swelling and itching. If your child is prone to allergies, it is better to choose another method of treating a cold in the home, for example, drops from seawater or washing with a weak salt solution.
Before starting to use Tui oil, both adult patients and young children are recommended to make a skin test for sensitivity: apply a drop of oil on the area under the nose and wait a day. If there are no negative symptoms, proceed to the treatment of rhinitis.
In the network, there are often recommendations from supposedly traditional healers to use thuja oil for steam inhalation. It is absolutely impossible to do this; even cases of pneumonia due to the use of thuja oil for inhalation with the help of ultrasonic inhalers and nebulizers are known.
Actually, ordinary steam inhalations with thuja oil are usually useless at runny nose because they do not cure a bacterial infection by heating and moistening, so microbes only multiply faster, and with a different type of runny nose (allergic, viral), thuja is not relevant at all.
How to buy the correct butter thuja? Since thuja oil is a popular remedy for colds and colds, there were drug manufacturers offering vaseline with the addition of a meager concentration of the therapeutic component for pure essential oil. On the box of the drug will be the inscription "homeopathic remedy" or "EDAS-801". The effectiveness of this remedy against the common cold seems doubtful, but it costs more than the usual aromatic oil of thuja.
Another way to relieve the pockets of lovers of natural cure for rhinitis is a homeopathic ointment containing only 0.5 tons of oil. It is assumed that with its help you can get rid of rhinitis, simply laying in the nose soaked cotton swabs. However, since the concentration of the essential oil in such an ointment is very low, it will not be able to provide any pronounced therapeutic effect.
Kalanchoe juice from a cold
Treatment of rhinitis Kalanchoe juice at home - one of the most popular, but at the same time controversial home techniques. Someone this tool helps to quickly get rid of a cold, for someone Kalanchoe does not have any effect at all, but there are people who have this rhinitis from this juice is only getting worse, and allergies are added to it.
The most unpleasant thing is that in advance it is impossible to predict the result of treatment of rhinitis with Kalanchoe juice. But we will try to objectively highlight all the pros and cons of this popular method and establish in which cases Kalanchoe can help get rid of a cold at home, and in which it is better not to use it. After all, the type and characteristics of the course of rhinitis will determine the effectiveness of the use of Kalanchoe.
The following properties of Kalanchoe may be useful for the treatment of rhinitis:
Bactericidal (destroys bacteria) and bacteriostatic (does not allow them to multiply). From this it follows that Kalanchoe juice is effective against bacterial rhinitis,
Anti-edematous (relieves nasal congestion) and anti-inflammatory (reduces mucus secretion),
Irritant (promotes sneezing and quick evacuation of nasal mucus).
Therapeutic effect of Kalanchoe with a cold:
Bactericidal effect. A large number of phytoncides are present in the composition of Kalanchoe, therefore, the juice of this plant can really stop a bacterial infection. But for this, it would have to be poured in literally with buckets so that a protective film was constantly present on the mucous membrane. And for the treatment of rhinitis at home it is recommended to drip only a few drops in each nasal passage 3-4 times a day. Is it possible to stop the infection in this way? Obviously, no. Another reason to doubt the effectiveness of Kalanchoe with rhinitis is a rarity of the bacterial cold. Most cases of rhinitis are viral or allergic in nature. Therefore, dripping into the nose Kalanchoe juice with flu, acute respiratory infections or hay fever does not make sense at all.
Anti-inflammatory effect. Here, everything looks much more encouraging - Kalanchoe juice really relieves swelling and quickly relieves inflammation. But to stop the inflammatory process in case of a cold before the time is dangerous, no matter how strange it may sound. Inflammation is a complex natural process initiated by a person’s immune system to defeat a disease. Muting this process artificially, we deprive the body of the ability to fight infection. Viruses or bacteria that cause a runny nose will not die from the juice of Kalanchoe, and immune cells (leukocytes and macrophages) will no longer be produced. So what then will kill the pathogen? Rhinitis runs the risk of becoming a serious illness. The indicator of the natural immune response is subfebrile body temperature. If a person has a temperature of about 37 ° C Celsius with a cold and a cold, it cannot be shot down, and it is not advisable to be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs include not only the well-known aspirin or analgin, but also Kalanchoe juice, so you shouldn’t drip it into your nose if the cold has just begun, and is accompanied by low-grade fever.
Kalanchoe against the flow of the nose. This is the effect of Kalanchoe most relevant in the treatment of rhinitis. The sap of the plant after contact with the nasal mucosa causes intense sverbenia and sneezing, and this helps to evacuate the mucus accumulated deep in the nasopharynx and in the maxillary sinuses. With a simple blow of your nose, it is impossible to clean your nose so effectively. But on the other hand, too intense sneezing can injure the mucous membranes and lead to their drying out as a result of the complete removal of mucus. Therefore, the treatment of rhinitis with the help of Kalanchoe juice should be careful and dosed: by adjusting the concentration and amount of medication, you should achieve the desired effect.
Lemon juice from the cold
Very effective at the first symptoms of the disease. It is necessary to mix lemon juice in half with water and pull it into the nose, immediately blowing back. You will have to do this several times, overcoming unpleasant sensations, and then immediately dissolve half a tablespoon of table salt in half a glass of warm boiled water, soak a cotton swab in this solution and introduce it alternately in each nostril. Lemon copes with microbes, and salt removes well the swelling of the nasal mucosa. If this unpleasant procedure is done several times during the day, a runny nose will pass very quickly. And, of course, in addition, you can breathe over grated onions or garlic in the old folk way. This is especially useful during a flu epidemic.
Editor's review: did so-so. The most important thing is to do it as soon as you feel your nose is laying. I just buried my nose with lemon juice and that's it. No cold. But for children this method is not suitable, it is very painful from the lemon in the nose.
Beets for the treatment of rhinitis
It is necessary to squeeze out some juice from a piece of beet, about 3 tablespoons add 1 teaspoon of natural honey. Stir well to dissolve honey. That's all, the drops are ready. Bury them in a few drops in each nostril 4 times a day. Runny nose quickly passes.But keep in mind: the tool is quite tart and potent. It is necessary to get used to this medicine. Drip a little bit, and if you feel that everything is normal, then increase the dose.
Garlic cure cold
Fill a jar, with a tight-fitting lid, finely chopped garlic. The essence of the treatment is to inhale therapeutic vapors. Putting a bubble to one nostril, close the second one with a finger and slowly inhale deeply, but be careful not to inadvertently inhale the contents. And so - in turn, gradually increasing the time of the procedure. At first, such sessions should be repeated 3-4 times during each hour, then the intensity can be reduced to 1-2 times per hour. As a rule, runny nose at the end of the day stops, the temperature drops. The next day, inhalation of garlic odor is repeated several times to prevent it. This recipe is good at the first sign of a cold.
Inhalation for the treatment of rhinitis
Rub the horseradish On a grater, put it in a jar and tightly close the lid. After 15 minutes open, breathe more fully in your mouth, hold your breath for 3 seconds and exhale through the nose. Repeat as many times as you can without effort. After such inhalations, no runny nose or sinusitis is not terrible for you.
We take 50 ml of vegetable oil, pour it into some glass dish that can be put in a water bath. Keep the oil in a boiling water bath for 40 minutes. During this time, the oil should lose all harmful substances. After 40 minutes, put the oil cool. And we take 4 slices garlic and quarter head Luke. Chop garlic and onions and pour this mixture with chilled vegetable oil. Let insist two hours. All useful qualities of onions and garlic will be transferred to the butter. Then just strain the oil and lubricate the mucous membranes in the nose. Do this as needed when the nose stops breathing. You will see the effect immediately. It will be easier to breathe, the congestion will pass, the snot will gradually stop flowing.
