Recently, popular methods of treatment are gaining more and more popularity, and this is not at all surprising, because they are simple, affordable and safe. Let’s talk about aloe juice, which is widely used in the common cold and cough.
Aloe vera juice is an effective remedy for sore throat and cough. With regular use, the tool will help in the treatment of the following pathologies:
Rhinitis, or a runny nose, is an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the sinuses, which is accompanied by copious secretions of mucus and pain.
The nasal sinuses are the place through which harmful substances, dust, viruses pass. Their functional abilities include the protection of the body from various diseases, because they should not let the infection inside.
The best remedy against rhinitis and sinusitis is aloe juice. Someone grows a plant at home for medicinal purposes, while others prefer to buy it.
For the preparation of medicines need leaves of the plant. We take the largest leaves and carefully wash them under running water.
After this, wipe the leaves dry with a towel and wrap in a newspaper. Leaves must be left in a cold place for ten days.
After ten days have passed, the leaflets must be unfolded and the thorns removed along with the peel. Then turn the leaves into a puree state.
The resulting gruel should be wrapped in a piece of gauze, through which the juice should be squeezed out.
The recipes for how you can apply aloe, can be very different. You can try another option.
It will need the lower leaves of the plant. Of them should also take a bigger one.
The juice is “mined” in the same way as in the first case: wash, dry, turn into mush and squeeze the juice. The treatment lasts for three days.
In each nostril should be instilled a few drops in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Often a runny nose is accompanied by a sore throat, in which case you can safely gargle with medicinal juice. It will promote the fastest healing of the mucous membrane. Redness and inflammation will also go away.
This ability of the drug encourages doctors to actively use the plant for angina.
The following recipe includes the combination of aloe and oil. The fact is that the plant is wonderfully combined with olive oil.
For one tablespoon of aloe juice, take three tablespoons of olive oil.
Next, you need to heat the resulting solution on the steam bath for five minutes, then in another vessel it must be held for several minutes in water at a temperature of one hundred degrees. How can you cure cold with this medicine? Every 4 hours you need to bury four drops in each nostril.
This is a good recipe for sinusitis and ordinary rhinitis.
Treatment of children
Absolutely everyone is susceptible to rhinitis, both adults and children. Nowadays, it is difficult to choose a medicine for children that would not cause unpleasant side effects or allergic reactions. Many experts, thanks to this, recommend aloe juice to drip into your child’s nose.
Why? Let’s talk about the main advantages of the plant:
- fast and safe removal of the inflammatory process
- supply the body with vitamins and minerals
- strengthening the child’s body
- neutralization of toxic substances and, consequently, the cessation of infection
- softening of the mucous membrane
- preventive measure against colds
- analgesic effect.
Adhere to the following rules:
- children under three years old can not use drops with undiluted aloe juice. Babies should dilute the juice with water
- squeezed juice can only be used within 24 hours
- Before digging in, it is necessary to warm the medicine to room temperature.

Kali with honey is easy to cook. We take in equal proportions such ingredients:
Drops with honey in some cases can lead to allergic reactions, because honey itself is a rather allergenic product. Allergies can manifest in the form of such symptoms: lacrimation, burning sensation in the nose, swelling.
When these symptoms appear, you should immediately stop using honey drops.
In pregnancy, treatment should be natural and safe. Even traditional medicine should be used after consulting a doctor. During this period, a woman’s immunity is weakened, so she is more vulnerable than ever to various kinds of diseases, in particular, catarrhal diseases.
Drugs, besides the positive aspects, have their own contraindications and side effects, which is why folk remedies are a wonderful way out of the situation.
Aloe during pregnancy is allowed, but in limited quantities.
In no case should not apply aloe inside. The fact is that the plant contains anthrahions.
These are substances that lead to the stimulation of smooth muscles.
In the early stages of pregnancy, the use of aloe juice is not recommended!
In the second trimester, you can safely bury aloe juice three times a day.
How to use the tool for otitis? To do this, take the usual pipette, tilt your head to the side and drip the ear, which is located on top.
It is best to use ready-made gel drops. You can dig in 3-5 drops.
For the best effect after instillation, the ear should be covered with a cotton swab.
Aloe is a natural stimulant for the whole body, which is why it is so effective when coughing.
Let’s talk about popular recipes that have saved many from coughing.
The first recipe is to take one tablespoon of honey and five tablespoons of aloe juice. To use the mixture can be from three to six times a day.
After drinking the mixture for the next thirty minutes, you should try not to eat or drink anything.
The second recipe differs from the first one by adding vodka to it. All ingredients must be thoroughly mixed and put in a cold place for ten days.
Take one teaspoon three times a day.
