While you can take the usual route of gulping down those antibiotics with a glass of water to ease the annoying symptoms, it would be a better idea to go natural this time and find relief in some easy-to-use herbal remedies. Here are the best home recipes that you can try to keep infections at bay this fall.
Turmeric For Cold
Turmeric For Cold: The golden spice turmeric has strong anti-inflammatory properties due to its most active component, curcumin. It is also blessed with anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antioxidant properties.  Add a pinch of turmeric powder to a glass of warm milk and have it once or twice a day to ease cough and cold.
Eucalyptus For Arthritis And Joint Pain
Eucalyptus For Arthritis And Joint Pain: The leaves of the eucalyptus plant contains tannin, which helps reduce swelling and pain triggered by arthritis.  Take one teaspoon of eucalyptus oil and add to it half a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Mix the two and massage on your joints. Wrap a woollen cloth for at least half an hour to soak up the heat. Do once every day to ease the pain.
Chamomile For Sinus
Chamomile For Sinus: Chamomile tea not only boosts your immunity, it is also effective in fighting the symptoms of sinus, due to its germicidal properties.  In a large pan, place two cups of chamomile flowers and pour eight cups of hot water over it. Put it on a table and sit comfortably. Place a towel over your head and inhale the steam by taking slow, deep breaths. You can also have it as tea.
Ginger For Sore Throat
Ginger For Sore Throat: The compound gingerol in ginger has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe a sore throat and also ease the pain. Add a tablespoon of freshly grated ginger to two cups of water and bring to a boil. Drink this tea twice a day for better relief. 
Cayenne Pepper For Congestion
Cayenne Pepper For Congestion: Cayenne pepper helps in the expulsion of mucus from the body, thus relieving nasal congestion. Add half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a lemon wedge and two teaspoons of honey in a mug. Pour boiling water over it and sip slowly to absorb the heat and clear the congestion.
