Dear Yashita
Not much studies are there to prove its effectiveness. You can follow the following:
- Cleavers: The homeopathic form of herb- Galium Aparium mother tincture. Take 3 drops in a glass of water.
- Fagonia Cretica: Take tea from the dried herb.
- Garlic: Eat 1 raw Garlic clove daily in the morning. Crush it with a wooden tool.
- Turmeric: Have Turmeric milk or Turmeric water.
- Soursop: Eat it as fruit, juice, or chop some fresh stems and leaves of Soursop. Boil them in 1-liter water until water is reduced to half. Strain. Drink 100 ml twice a day. You may add Honey.
Add immunity boosters to diet as Indian gooseberry, Vitamin C, Carrot juice daily (2-3 glass).
