Recurrent Cold: A Natural Treatment with Homeopathy

A cold can arise from many viruses. There are more than hundreds of viruses that can cause cold. Recurrent cold is an indicator of a weak immune system. Once a person catches a viral infection resulting in cold, the body fights with that infection and becomes immune to the same virus again. But as there are many viruses that can cause a cold, it is not possible to build immunity towards all of them. Whenever a body fights with an infection, the immune system tends to get weak that makes one prone to suffer from another infection in a shorter time resulting in frequent/recurrent cold. Homeopathic medicines for recurrent cold help to build the body’s immunity to save a person from catching recurrent infections.     homeopathic medicines for recurrent cold
