Who Is at Risk for a Common Cold?

Age is a factor when it comes to the common cold. Children are most at risk as they have weaker immune systems. The elderly, for similar reasons are also more at risk. People who have underlying health issues may also be susceptible. But, anyone can get a cold at any time if their immune system is weak or compromised.

Homeopathy Is a Better Option for Chronic Cold

There are no vaccines against the common cold nor is there a treatment to prevent it. Usually, as with any viral infection, you will be given medication for only the symptoms. If this is a rare occurrence, consuming those medications may not be a problem. But if it occurs often as with children or people with weak immune systems, homeopathy is a wiser choice as homeopathic medications that are given for symptoms of cold can be taken without fear of side effects over long periods. This is because homeopathic medications use a very small and diluted amount of the active ingredient that treats the illness.

Homeopathic Medication Offers Long Term Relief

The goal of homeopathy is holistic wellness, and therefore, the medications that are given may take some time to offer relief but the solution will be long lasting. Usually a combination of medicines is prescribed to treat the symptoms of the cold and to build immunity against future infections.
