This is a common condition for people, especially people with asthma or who have had bronchitis in the past. There is a tendency that an everyday cold or cough, if not monitored, will go deeper to the chest. A visit to the GP will usually be required and invariably a course of antibiotics will be prescribed.
Unfortunately we all know from the news that antibiotics are not working as well as they used to and GPs are now reluctant to prescribe antibiotics as freely as they once did. This is because our bugs and illnesses have become resilient and are not responding to them and super bugs are now emerging.
As a homeopath I consider a cold as a healthy sign, if it moves in the right direction and by that I mean outwards. It means the body is busy fighting off infection and is pushing the symptoms away from the body to the outside eventually leaving the body.
I prefer symptoms to be on the outside rather than inside. This is because if the symptoms begin to go inwards they go deeper into the body, hence the cold that goes to the chest which in itself can have many more serious implications.
This is where homeopathy can help. With a carefully selected remedy it can bring the body back into balance, ideally enabling it to work for itself as it was designed to do, pushing everyday colds away from the body .
Anyone that has received constitutional homeopathic treatment during their life can fight off winter coughs and colds more easily without the need to use over the counter medications.
