Autumn is here and aside from beautiful carpets of gold leaf, brings unpleasant viruses and colds accompanied by irritating cough. However, cough can be caused by other factors – such as allergies, dry air, smoking and others. If the situation is not so bad you can try to escape from cough without medicine with some little tricks at home.
Heating is enemy number one when we cough. Heating the room with an electric stove or heating drains air. Humidity measurements show that where there is heating, the air is dry as in the desert. Attempts to put wet by evaporators, does not give the desired result. Most appropriate is to put wet towels and to replace them periodically.
Don’t Underestimate the Power of Hydration
When we have cold our nose is blocked and secretion trickles down the back of our throat and may cause cough. Drinking a lot of fluids especially water and hot drinks is good for your cough and make you feel better.
Lower the Temperature
The heat creates an environment for the development of pathogenic microorganisms. In rooms where we sleep is better to be cool, as the most suitable temperature is 18-20 degrees. Not accidentally, Dr. Spock recommends it for baby’s bedroom. If the degrees rise above the healthy norm, the air is saturated with positive aeroyoni. They are fertile environment for pathogens and cause exacerbation of various chronic diseases such as allergies, heart disease and migraines. Dry air dries out mucous membranes and causes problems in all diseases of the respiratory tract. Very often, inflammation of the bronchi is preceded by inflammation of the nose – rhinitis and “expands” a neighborhood scheme – pharyngitis – faringotraheit – bronchitis. Furthermore, secretion of rhinitis, sinusitis and other infections localized in nasopharynx, also cause cough and no inflammation be lowered down into the lungs. Therefore, prevention of bronchitis and a rapid cure is important to take care of the throat and nose.
So if you want not to cough be aware of some little things which make big difference.
