Ayurvedic remedies to treat cold and flu

We are living a very stressful life. We feel miserable while we are living it and miserable again when we experience its uncomfortable results. We often know we need to slow down, eat well, find balance, but we don’t know where to begin…

‘Begin with ONE area of life. See what the effects are,’ – advices Dr. Claudia Welch. 

Before I’ll tell you how to treat cold and flu, I’d like to talk about ‘Life’ in general. Your life. Our lives. Yesterday the blogger Esoterica asked: How would you spend one year and 100K dollar? – here’s the post

My answer was… guess! Right – ‘doing nothing’. Why ‘doing nothing’? Because I never tired of it. Isn’t the world created to do nothing and just enjoy the present…? If no – then I’m in so-so-so wrong place. Esoterica’s response was great too. She wrote: 

I think, ‘we’ as a collective humanity are addicted to BEING BUSY.  Simply being present – is probably one of the most rewarding things you can do for your health…

I know, you can’t comment on my posts this summer, because the comments are turned off, but you can go over and answer on her page, if you like the question. 

Think: It is never too late to start to take steps toward living the life we want to be living. 

Once Frank Woodruff Buckles has been asked about the secret of his long life. He joked: 

‘When you start to die…don’t’

But seriously, Frank???
He said: ‘HOPE…and never hurry.’

A gradual changes is the best strategy. And today we take the first step – to study how to fight a flu and cold, because you should be prepared if those nasty things will arrive. 


Going by the wisdom of the Ayurvedic sage, Vagbhata, who wrote: “There is nothing in this world which is not a medicine”, you can make effective remedies using common kitchen ingredients. Try some of the following and see how they work for you:

  • Mix 1 tsp each of ginger powder, turmeric and black pepper and take ½ tsp of this mixture with warm water and honey twice a day.
  • Mix ½ tsp fresh ginger juice with ½ tsp honey and take 3 to 5 times a day.
  • Crush 1 tsp fresh ginger root with 7 cardamom seeds, 3-5 clove seeds, add 1 cup of water, 3-5 mint leaves. Boil it 3 min, filter it, add 1 tsp honey and 1 tsp lemon juice when the water isn’t too hot. Drink 3 times a day during at least 4 days. 

I personally prefer the third variant. Try it.  

Yoga sequences to fight cold and flu (at least during 4-8 weeks, never do if you has a fever):



All my mindfulness/ayurvedic posts will move to ‘Doctor Becky All Inclusive’ – WordPress blog – from July. Here’s the link if you’d like to follow – Dr Becky Page
I’ll post there only once or twice a week, my usual mindfulness/ayurveda/health posts.
