Fight Cold, Flu and Infections With This Ayurvedic Wonder

The monsoons are finally here. We know you can't wait to drench yourself in the rain, but watch out for the wave of cold and flu bouts that are common during this season. Changing weather conditions could mean a dip in our immunity levels. Moreover, the humidity in the air is known to adversely affect metabolism, slow down digestion and cause problems like constipation or diarrhoea. Kadha is an Ayurvedic home remedy that could protect you, make you stronger from within and also help in fighting seasonal infections.

What is a Kadha?
Kadha is essentially an Ayurvedic drink made with a number of herbs and spices that are boiled usually in water to extract their benefits. With a variety of whole spices, ingredients and herbs easily found in an Indian household, the decoction is the most inexpensive home remedy to strengthen your immunity and fight infections.

A kadha can be made in many ways and it can be a combination of many ingredients.
There are 3 ways to make kadha at home to boost your immunity and battle monsoon woes.

1] Grind Tulsi leaves, black pepper and Ginger together and then boil them in water. To sweeten the concoction you can add some honey. This kadha works wonders for cold and cough.
2] Mix half teaspoon of cinnamon powder in a cup of water and bring it to boil. Add a teaspoon of honey and drink up for strength and energy.

3] Grind about half teaspoon of giloy (guduchi -- Indian Tinospora ), add it to a cup of water and boil. This decoction aids digestion, boosts your immunity and fights symptoms of flu.

Stay strong with these natural immunity boosters that act as precautionary measures and may help in faster recovery. However, if you're suffering from a prolonged infection or one that keeps coming back, you must consult a doctor.
