Winter is coming! As much as we all love the chill in the air, the relief from the unrelenting heat and the festivities that winter brings along, it is also true that we are more prone to illnesses and diseases in the season. Our immunity can take a hit during winter and it is important to stay strong and ward off any potential sickness by being prepared.
While medications and rest will eventually help you get better, antibiotics might not always be the best choice for your body (since they tend to have a lot of side effects). The human body is said to be a combination of the five elements: earth, fire, water, air, and space. It is interesting to learn about what Ayurveda says about the human body, diseases, and the immune system.
Since it essentially advocates the usage of natural elements and ingredients for the prevention and treatment of anything and everything, Ayurvedic remedies are the best ones, especially after a certain age, when your body starts reacting differently to unnatural products.
Seniority has put together a list of five Ayurveda-backed products that can enable you to deal with certain common problems that senior citizens are known to face, especially during winters. From Ayurvedic medicines for a cough, cold, throat infections, acidity, digestion, to even anxiety and stress, we have it all. Read on!
