Sneezing, cough, cold, phlegm – causes and remedies


What is sneezing? When does it occur? Sneeze does not come to anyone at anytime. It comes only at specific times due to specific reasons. Please think carefully. If we shake off an old cloth in the air, when the dust particles from the cloth go inside our nose, we sneeze. When we walk on the road, if someone is sweeping the road, the dust particles make us sneeze. If we eat something very hot or containing too much spice, we sneeze. When some items containing chilli powder, etc. are being cooked in the kitchen, the odour entering our nose causes sneezing.

Why does sneezing happen? When dust particles, hot and spicy items, germs, etc., which can cause harm to the lungs, enter our nose, our lung gets afraid. It immediately goes to a doctor inside our body and says “Forty harmful particles have come inside. I am in danger. Please send them out.” The doctor inside our body gives this job to a sneezing gland called Histamine. Histamine gland examines the lung and does research. It then decides, “There are forty particles here. Therefore, we can send them out using four sneezes.” And then, it gets the strength needed for four sneezes and also enough air and water from the body and creates the sneezing.

Therefore, sneezing is nothing but a wonderful way by which our body gets rid of the unwanted particles with a lot of force by using the required air and water, even without our knowledge. Sneezing is not in our control. It comes all of a sudden and we are not even aware of its impending arrival. So, we can see that sneezing is not a disease. It is the treatment given by our body. But, when we get sneezing, we tend to suppress it. When we are in our office or in a meeting, we try to avoid sneezing. If we avoid sneezing, this avoidance is the actual disease.

Some people use oils or balms to stop sneezing when it occurs. Some people buy medicines like Coldact, Coldarin, etc. to stop sneezing. What have these people done in the bargain ? There is a garbage of dust in our body which wanted to come out through Sneezing but these people have stopped the garbage to come out but allowed the garbage remain within the body which in turn wants to come out through throat (cough) then flums (in lungs) and finally goes deep inside the body which can even result in Stone formation.

The smell from the balm or the medicine intake goes inside our body and orders the sneezing gland to stop working. Thus, it prevents our body from protecting itself from unwanted things. Therefore, it is a great treachery that we do to our body if we stop the sneezing gland from working when it tries to throw out the unwanted particles. As long as the smell of the balm is present in our body, we will not get sneezing. We may think that we have cured the disease called sneezing. We are wrong. We have actually stopped an action of the body to send out the unwanted particles for the next four or five hours. The sneezing gland will not work till the smell of the balm remains. If the sneezing gland does not work when there are forty dust particles, during these five hours, four thousand dust particles will enter our lung. Therefore, we should not take any treatment to stop sneezing when it occurs.

We should understand that the air in that place is polluted and we should come out of that place immediately or we should use a fan or we should cover our face with a piece of cloth. Thus, we should only try to clean the air we breathe and not attempt to stop the sneezing.

Therefore, sneezing is not a disease at all. The only treatment for sneezing is that we should sneeze well when we get sneezing. The only medicine for sneezing is to sneeze. If we do anything else, it will harm our body.

Best Remedies home made are given below : 

  • Take 10 gms of Pipli (Long Pepper), 10 gms of Black pepper and 1 inch of fresh ginger.  First grind the pipli and black pepper into power.  Add honey to this and make it a paste.  It is one of the best remedy.  For normal cough this is enough.   This paste can be kept for months together and it won’t get spoilt.  Hope you remember the stick that you use while eating ice cream.  Use the same stick, dip it in the paste and taste it in tongue.  Keeping having it every 2-3 hours once and in about 1 or 2 days your cough will vanish.
  • For Dry cough, add ginger juice also.  How to extract ginger juice ? Grate ginger and in clean hand squeeze the ginger into a different bowl.  You will get sufficient quantity of ginger juice.  You can add this juice into the paste and this will last for four days only.  After that it becomes pungent and you will have to throw it away.  So avoid ginger juice if you can in the paste already made.  Instead, remove small quantity of pipli and black pepper paste separately and add ginger juice and have it.
  • Yet another simple remedy is to mix one spoon of ginger juice with half spoon of honey.  This will taste like cough syrup and this will give you great relief.
  • Take one pomegranate.  Remove all the seeds into a small plate.  Take clean white thin cloth and put the pomegranate seeds into it and extract juice into a bowl.  One pomegranate seeds will give you half glass of juice and in this juice add one spoon of ginger juice.  Stir it well and keep having it as cough syrup.  You need to have 2-3 spoons at a time and not more than this.  Have it 4-5 times a day within 3 hours after you have made,  your cough and cold will vanish.
