Alternative Medicine for Infectious Diseases

Recommended Posts

Lifestyle and home remedies

Many infectious diseases, such as colds, will resolve on their own. Drink plenty of fluids and get lots of rest.

Alternative medicine

A number of products have been purported to help fend off common illnesses, such as the cold or flu. While some of these substances have appeared promising in early trials, follow-up studies may have had negative or inconclusive results. More research needs to be done.

Some of the substances that have been studied for preventing or shortening the duration of infection include:

  • Cranberry
  • Echinacea
  • Garlic
  • Ginseng
  • Goldenseal
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Zinc

Check with your doctor before trying any products that promise to boost your immune system or chase colds and other illnesses away. Some of these products may cause allergic reactions or interact adversely with other medications you may be taking.
