I am Thanmadhi and our kid did not had frequent Cold until he was 2 years. After that he started getting Cold quite often and anti biotics became a weekly intake. I was very much frustrated as I was not very comfortable with taking anti biotics. At least for two months my Dad was asking me to try Coconut milk with Sukku, Milagu, Kirambu, Aelakkai etc., But I was not very much confident as I tried Pepper, Turmeric, Chicken etc., so many times.
But after couple of months as nothing worked out and my boy started getting cold, fever, throat pain on regular intervels. As there is no other go I started trying the Coconut milk mix that my father suggested. Though it is little bit time consuming I started giving this to my boy every night before sleep for a week. He got cold on the third day after I started providing the Coconut milk mix. Usually in a day or two cold will become severe and he will get fever then we will run for the doctor. This had become a routine but this time there was a surprise.
This coconut milk mix did not allowed the cold to get congest in the chest. Mucus was coming out through nose, cough and the intensity of the cold decreased day by day. After this I made this as a regular routine and started providing coconut milk mix every night. Now my boy is not only out of cold but he became strong, he gained weight but did not be became fat. For the past five months no antibiotics, no doctor and I am relieved.
How to make the Coconut milk mix for cold,
1) Coconut - 1 (Cut into pieces) 2) Sukku - 1 table spoon 3) Milagu - 20 nos 4) Kirambu - 8 nos 5) Aelakkai - 2 nos
Mix all the above mentioned items and grind in mixie. Add required amount of water while grinding. After that place the mix in a light cloth and squeeze it to get the coconut milk out of it. Place it in a vessel add required amount of water. Heat for couple of minutes then add powdered karuppatti and mix it. Now your mix is ready for your kid. If you did not have access to karuppatti use very less amount of sugar for sweet.
