Cold is a disease of the Upper Respiratory Tract.
The Viral infection that causes inflammation and irritation in the Upper Respiratory Tract is Cold.
It is mainly caused by Rhinovirus.
Cold is contagious. It causes congestion in the Chest and upper respiratory tract.
When the virus enters the body, the membranes of Nose and the Throat become irritated. It causes swelling and produces excess of mucus. Gradually, the symptoms develop and causes Runny Nose, Sneezing, Fever, Headache and Sore Throat.
This is our body's reaction to through the Virus out of the body.
People with weak immune system are more prone to get Cold. It is more common at the end of the seasons.

Causes of Cold
Nutritional Deficiency
Coronavriuses adenovirus
Human parainfluenza virus
Increase of toxicity in the body
Human respiratory syncytial virus

Wash hands regularly
Avoid contact with an infected person
Avoid touching objects and doorknobs touched by and infected person

If not treated properly,Cold may cause
Ear infections
Asthma attacks
Lower respiratory tract infections

A visit to the Doctor is a must

A Different Perspective
This is the official version. There is yet another angle to Common Cold. Picture this. You have come in sweating from the heat outside and have exposed yourself to the cold drought of the AC. Within minutes you will ' catch ' a cold. At this point in time there is no virus and no bacteria. Its a reaction of the body to protect itself from the sudden differential temperature. Or you have had a real hot water bath in winter and immediately go out into the cold inadequately dressed. You have again exposed yourself to a sudden difference in temperature. In such situations if you reverse the cause immediately and take herbal teas to regain the balance, you can get well real fast. The secret is to restore the balance before the bacteria or the virus take over.
Reheat your body immediately and take herbal teas. For specific remedies see Materia Medica below.

Note: The other thing to keep in mind is, that this is a natural defense done by our body. The immune system is trying to flush out the Virus from the body. It is recommended, not to take antibiotics, as it may suppress the system. As a result, the cold may get settle in your body for permanent or there will be recurrence of Cold.
Some scientists believe that, our body uses the Virus of cold itself to remove the toxicity from the body.
Eat a healthy diet to make your Immune System strong. Weak Immune System is less able to fight against infections.

Dear Herbpathy

I have been suffering from the problem of cold.Its been 4-5 years when it was diagnosed and is due to weather changing and some of the other factors. In order to cure this problem i have to take the prescribed medicine for continuous 2 weeks but still it is on regular basis. This problem of cold also leads to other health issues such as cough ,fever ,weakness in the body. Instead of taking medicines for such long weeks I would like to find an effective solution to my problem and going through the useful information displayed on herbpathy.com I would be very thankful if you could provide any treatment to this .

Dear Gaurav Jindal

When we take alopathic medicine in Cold, Instead of curing the Root cause it will suppress the cause inside the body.
When we catch Cold due to sudden change in body temperature, then we should take Herbal teas. As it will help in reheating the body from inside.
In case of Viral infection, the body tries to throw out the pathogen. This is the natural process of the body to defense itself.
One of the reasons for Cold is Weak Immune system. We recommend you to take such Herbs, that will improve your Immune system.
You may take Ginger decoction four times a day. It will help in melting the Phlegm and will throw out the Virus.

For more information, please visit the page of Cold under disease section on this website.

Suffering from cold from last 3days, getting this problem every alternate month from last 3years.
Always the cold is so severe that nose is working like a tap and continue headache adding the problem.

Dear Meenal
I suggest you do not take any allopathy medicine for this. As it may suppress the cold and may causes congestion. The running nose is good as it is secreting all impurities out. Cold in not a disease itself. When some foreign body enters in our body, the natural defense system that is the Immune system tries to throw it out from the body. You better take the following.
Take a few fresh leaves of Basil and 2 slices of Ginger. Boil it for 10 min. Add 1 teaspoon of Honey and a pinch of black pepper to it. Have fresh tea 2 to 3 times in a day. Also cut 1 onion and smell it for 5 min. Repeat it 2 to 3 times in a day. Avoid milk for some days.
It may take a week to get well.

I suggest you not to take any allopathy drugs as they may suppress the disease inside.
Better take a cup of fresh Ginger tea every day for 3 to 4 days only. Add a few leaves of Basil too. Also smell the essence of the tea.
Take one teaspoon of Honey, crush 1 cardamom. add a pinch of black pepper and have it 2 to 3 times in a day.
Have 1 Swalin tablet a day.
Follow this regimen for 4 to 5 days only. It will take some time to get heal.
