Sweet lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and are known for easing the symptoms of the common cold, such as stuffy noses, dehydration, and sore throats. While it is not a cure, sweet lemons are nutritious and will boost the immunity system, helping you look after your body during this difficult time.
Turmeric is a well-known spice that is a fundamental part of Asian cooking and culture. It has been used in traditional medicine systems including Ayurveda and has shown promising efficiency against influenza symptoms.
There are plenty of ways you can incorporate turmeric into your day-to-day routine. The most popular way is pairing it with other spices and herbs and adding it to your meals. It is complimentary to roast vegetables, salad dressing, golden milk (or turmeric latte), curries, and pasta dishes, etc. – adding extra flavour and decreasing inflammation. You can also make a turmeric-mixed drink.
In ancient Chinese medicine, garlic was prescribed to aid respiration and digestion issues in patients. But in recent years, modern science has confirmed many of these beneficial health effects, including reducing blood pressure, improve bone health and lower the risk of heart disease.
In addition to this, studies have proven that garlic can help fight colds and the flu. This delicious herb can help you recover quicker and boost your immune system, reducing your chances of catching an illness. Top tip: to maximise these benefits, it is best to consume raw or aged extract.
Drinking water has plenty of benefits, particularly when suffering from Covid-19 symptoms as fluids can be lost through having a runny nose and fever. In terms of wellbeing in general, drinking water helps flush toxins out of the body to keep the immune system in good working order. It also has plenty of other benefits for the mind and skin.
Here are a few ways you can drink water to look after your body during Covid-19:
- Drinking cold water will make it easier for your body to maintain a lower core temperature.
- Gargling a saltwater solution to ease a sore throat.
- Drinking hot water can be particularly helpful because the steam can ease congestion.
- Adding fruit into your water for a variety of different benefits.
- Hot water with honey and lemon will add tasty flavour and help suppress a cough and sore throat.
There are also plenty of things you can do to help ease your coronavirus symptoms and make you feel better. This includes lots of sleep, regular minimal exercising such as walking and staying connected with your family and friends.
