Cough and cold are some of the common health problems that are often seen in every household. Cough and cold can be the result of many factors such as a change in weather, consumption of cold water, and higher exposure to pollutants and allergens. Normally, cough can last for several days, and if left untreated can become chronic, too.
Persistent cough causes inflammation of the respiratory tract and throat. And the most common cause is the prolonged exposure to pollution and allergens. To protect yourself from this disease, it is important to have strong immunity. However, due to poor nutrition and irregular lifestyle, immunity gets affected to a great extent. Ayurveda, which is a traditional system of Indian medicine, is a well-known example of both preventive and curative health care.
