An apple a day, keeps the doctor away. Lemon the remedy for cold and fever. Do you know that lemon can also keep doctor away? (Oh really?) If you have been following my previous posts, you would have been equipped with the knowledge that lemon helps to cure acne, lighten the dark pigment spots and also relieve any anxiety or stress you are facing. Besides all these benefits, lemon is a natural remedy for cold and fever.
When you are having such symptoms, it means that your body is low in immunity and in need of Vitamin C for your defense cells. If you are having fever, get a cup of warm water and mix it with the juice of 1 lemon and honey. Drink it every 2 hours. If you are having sore throat, get a cup of lukewarm water, mix it with the juice of 1 lemon and 1 teaspoon (5ml) of sea salt. Gargle it for one minute to reduce the burning sensation. Try three times a day.
However, do remember that sufficient rest is also necessary for a speedy recovery.
