Nobody likes to have a cold. Even the mildest dose can leave you feeling rotten and run down for weeks. In healthy adults, one to two colds a year is considered normal, however unpleasant. In school-aged children, however, this is markedly increased, with some estimating that anywhere from six to twelve colds are normal. This needn't be the case and you can dramatically reduce the number of sick days in your home with homeopathy.
Studies have shown that children whose colds were treated with homeopathy were more likely to feel and do better than those children whose colds had been treated conventionally. The homeopathically treated children also had fewer complications, and their parents took significantly less sick-leave than the parents of those children treated with antibiotics.
It is hard to escape the winter without succumbing to at least one cold. Be alert for initial signs and symptoms and you will be able to reduce the duration of your illness.
There are some things you can employ to try to avoid infection.

This remedy is best suited for a cold that comes on suddenly after being out in cold, windy weather. YOu could see symptoms like:
Pulsatilla is known for its changeable symptoms, so you may notice the cough or runny nose is bad in the morning, ok through the day and comes back in the evening.
This is a remedy for that 'classic flu'. Body aches, zero energy overall feeling rubbish.
For a really heavy cold that leaves you feeling like all you want is a hoodie and a hot water bottle.
Use for cases of colds with a dry nose, mouth & throat. Also for a cold that seems as though it may go to the chest.
Hopefully, these few pointers will help you find some relief should you succumb to a cold or flu this winter. Remember, if you aren't sure what remedy is best for you, book an acute call here.
Feel better soon!
