The change in the weather brings with it cold and flu as accompanying baggage. Most people end up suffering due to erratic climatic changes, allergies to dust and pollution as well as a weak immune system. Cold and flu symptoms include a runny nose, watery eyes, itchy throat accompanied by cough and fever resulting in weakness. Although there are no quick fix remedies, certain herbs and spices can help prevent the condition.
