Everyone is threatened from the microbes from the air. A grown person can have up to 3 colds in a year, while a child can have up to 5. Occurrence of influenza, cold and laryngitis is not comfortable, but with some helpful tips, you can avoid it the right way.
How to avoid the cold?
When you're having the cold, the capillaries in your nose start to spread. That leads to enhanced activity of cells that produce mucus. Mucus then descends to your throat which cause laryngitis.
If it has come to the inflammation of the upper respiratory channels, symptoms are sneezing, fever, sore throat, tiredness... Anything that irritates the respiratory system will help the cold. We can't affect the pollution, but we can affect our surroundings. Avoid cigarettes and their harmful smoke and people who have the cold.
You can also help your immunity by eating white onions, apples, red peppers, leafy vegetables and citrus fruits. You will stock up on vitamin C by eating those and protect yourself against bacterias and viruses.
In case you get the cold, it'll be necessary to stay in bed for a few days. You should drink lots of fluids, like tea and water. You can also take some capsules or effervescent tablets that contain vitamin C.
