In Ayurveda, the common cold is called Pratishyaya. In this condition, all the three doshas of the body are responsible for causing the common cold. The Ayurvedic treatment of flu consists of pacifying the aggravated body energies, expelling excess mucus, restoring peripheral circulation, strengthening digestion and boosting immunity by restoring the aggravated dosha.
- Cold due to Vata dosha shows up as dry coughs, little mucus discharge, hoarse voice, headache, and a runny nose
- Cold due to Pitta dosha can cause fever, sore throat, yellowish nasal discharge and continuous blockage of the nose
- Cold due to Kapha dosha shows up as thick mucus discharges with dull headaches and heaviness of head
From the Ayurvedic perspective, there are many different types of fever, depending upon the dosha involvement and the causative factors. However, most fevers indicate an excess of Kapha dosha where the body produces a fever in response to a digestive fire weakened by excess stickiness and heaviness.
A fever (also termed pyrexia) is a higher-than-normal body temperature and is a symptom caused by a wide variety of illnesses. Fevers may occur in an individual at any age and seem to play a key role in helping the body fight off a number of infections. Simply put, it is a temporary increase in body temperature, and usually occurs in response to an infection as with the flu, viruses that cause a cold, strep throat bacterial infection, or most infectious diseases, or with inflammation that occurs with tissue injury or disease (such as with some cancers).
For an adult, a fever may be uncomfortable, but usually isn't a cause for concern unless it reaches 103 F or higher. For infants and toddlers, a slightly elevated temperature may indicate a serious infection.
Symptoms of a fever
Depending on the cause of the fever, additional fever signs and symptoms may include:
Chills and shivering
Loss of appetite
Children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years might experience febrile seizures
Causes of fever
A fever occurs when the body's immune response is triggered by pyrogens (fever-producing substances). Pyrogens usually come from a source outside the body and, in turn, stimulate the production of additional pyrogens inside the body. Pyrogens send a message to the hypothalamus to increase the temperature set point which is why an individual experience shivers. A fever itself is not considered to be an illness but rather a symptom that the body’s defenses are fighting off an infection. It is part of the process of how the body kills germs. Other causes of a fever include:
Teething in children
Other viral and bacterial infections
The common cold is an infectious disease of the upper respiratory system that is caused by a virus but is not specific to a single virus. There are over 200 viruses that cause symptoms that are known as the common cold with rhinoviruses making up the most common viruses. The symptoms are mainly a result of the response of the body’s immune system rather than damage from the virus itself. Most are related to inflammatory mediators such as histamines which are triggered in response to the virus in an attempt to protect the body.
Symptoms of a common cold
Runny or stuffy nose
Slight body aches or a mild headache
Generally feeling unwell (malaise)
Discharge from the nose that may become thicker and yellow or green as a common cold runs its course
Causes of a common cold
Around 50 percent of colds are caused by rhinoviruses, other cold-causing viruses include:
Human parainfluenza virus
human respiratory syncytial virus
Since a cold virus enters the body through the mouth, eyes, or nose, the virus can spread through droplets in the air when someone who is sick coughs, sneezes or talks. It can also spread by hand-to-hand contact with someone who has a cold or by sharing contaminated objects, such as utensils, towels, toys or telephones.
