Doctors say most of the people troubled by dry cough in Delhi are those who are out in the open for long hours, breathing in the toxic air. They are usually two-wheeler riders or those doing field work as part of their job.
“If the cough lasts more than three days, one should immediately take medical help. It can be a sign of a serious medical condition,” they warned.
It has been found that herbs like Jufa, Tulsi, Bharangi and others are useful in cleansing the respiratory tract, expelling cough from the body system. These herbs also help boost the body’s immunity, the doctors said.
Dr Shantanu Kumar from the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) said on account of air pollution in Delhi, many people are contracting allergy symptoms which include cough, mucus, fever and headache, which if not treated early can turn contagious.
“Consuming tea and milk containing turmeric, tulsi, ginger, cloves and black pepper can help heal the sore throat, and remove toxic elements from the body system,” he said.
According to a few studies, some household plants like snake plant, bamboo, Areca Palm, peace lily and money plant, can take in toxins from the atmosphere and purify the air. The use of beeswax candles, salt lamps or essential oils, including rosemary, thyme, oregano, tea tree, lemongrass and cinnamon, can also help in purifying the air, they said.
