•  If the cold is in acute stage, and accompanied by headache, sore throat and sneezing bouts with a running nose, application of dry Ginger paste over the sinuses helps.

•  A cloth bag that is warmed should be kept over the nose and forehead.

•  A decoction made of a quarter teaspoon of dry ginger, cinnamon, Tulsi leaves (Ocimum sanctum), four corns of pepper and a few springs of lemon grass laced with a spot of jaggery. Always drink them hot.

•  In general, addition of dry ginger, black pepper, Pippali (Piper longum) or rock salt to the cooked food will relieve the symptoms dramatically.

•  In fact anything with a pungent and spicy taste, be it medicine or food, will dilute the kapha character of the cold and make one feel much better.
