It is commonly believed that season change cold or viral fever lasts seven days , with or without medicine. But my recent experience has been slightly different. I recently had an attack of cold accompanied by profuse watery mucous discharges and mild fever on the third day. I decided not to take any medicine and go the Naturopathy way. I avoided solid food for one full day and took hot cow’s milk and tea with tulsi leaves and the next day (fourth day) , I was free of all symptoms.
