Natural remedies are available in the United Kingdom to combat colds and flu.
In Africa, the Zulus have been using natural medicine in the form of plants to fight colds for centuries. Herbal remedies are natural medicines which are used all the time by many African tribes. s mentioned previously, the Zulu tribes, for instance, have taken extracts from a Geranium plant for thousands of years.
The Zulus use this plant as a natural health cure to stop coughs and sneezes. One of the quick and effective ways, the plant makes a difference is by cutting away phlegm.
�’Geranium�’�” the plant has a particula key ingredient known as Kaloba, which has now been made in to a natural medicine and passed for sale in this country.
The manufacturers claim it can activate anti-viral defences in a person�’�”s body to bring about a natural cure. This natural medicine is derived from a certain geranium plant called �’Pelargonium Sidoides�’�” and comes in drop and tablet form.
Due to herbal remedies being considered a natural medicine the manufacturers do not have to provide evidence of how effective it really is. They do have to prove it is a safe product.
At Natural Cures, we can report that one quarter of people in England and Wales are off work every year with coughs and colds.
Many doctors hope there is a breakthrough with herbal remedies as a natural health cure. Their concerns are that too many antibiotics are prescribed by doctors up and the country.
There was a study carried out which found Kaloba had ‘limited effectiveness’ in the treatment of coughs and colds. However, the report also stated Kaloba ‘may be effective’ in relieving some of the symptoms of acute bronchitis.
In Britain, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency have recently passed it for sale in this country.
