ضد نہیں ہے پسند ہے تو مری اشک تاثی ِر آب رکھتے ہیں
گویا جنت میں حور بھی ہو گی
اور ترا آسرا رہا ہوں میں َشیخ نیت خراب رکھتے ہیں
پھر مرے غم میں رو رہی ہے تو بہہ نا جائیں کہیں یہ اشکوں میں
اپنی پلکوں پہ خواب رکھتے ہیں

حسن بکھرا ہوا ملا ہے مجھے
تیری صورت بنا رہا ہوں میں بلال احمد
لفظ لپٹے ہوئے ہیں پیروں سے
اور ترے خط جلا رہا ہوں میں بہت یاد آتے ہو

اور ہنس کے ساز بجاتا ہے

پھر اپنی چاہت دیکھتی ہوں
اُس وقت بہت یاد آتے ہو
جب ضبط کا بندھن ٹوٹتا ہے
آنکھوں سے اشک نکلتے ہیں

Cough can help to keep your throat clear from phlegm & other irritants. However, sustained
coughing can also be symptomatic of a number of conditions, such as an allergy, a viral infec- Strep Throat
tion, or a bacterial infection. You can treat coughs due to colds, allergies, and sinus infections
with a no. of over-the-counter medicines. Bacterial infections will require antibiotics.
1. Honey: 2 teaspoons of honey with herbal tea or warm water and lemon. The honey does
the soothing, while the lemon juice can help with congestion.
2. Pineapple: An enzyme found only in the stem and fruit of pineapples — can help sup-
press coughs as well as loosen the mucus in your throat. Eat a slice of pineapple or drink
3.5 ounces of fresh pineapple juice three times a day.
3. Peppermint: Menthol in peppermint soothes the throat and acts as a decongestant,
helping to break down mucus. To make a steam bath, add 3 or 4 drops of peppermint oil
for every 150 milliliters of hot water. Drape a towel over your head, and take deep breaths
directly above the water.
4. Gargles: Salt and water gargle can help soothe a scratchy throat that causes you to cough.
Mixing 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt with 8 ounces of warm water can help to relieve irrita-
Strep throat is a common infection. Symptoms include severe sore throat, difficulty swallowing, fever, swollen lymph nodes in the
neck, throat that is bright red in color, and white or yellow spots on the throat. Antibiotics are used to treat strep throat.
You can relieve some of the symptoms of strep throat with home remedies
• Over-the-counter pain medications including ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) can help relieve
pain and inflammation.
• Gargling with salt water is a natural remedy that can help clear the throat and relieve pain.
• Throat sprays, many that contain topical anesthetics can provide short-term relief.
• Lozenges can help keep the throat moist, and those with anesthetics in them may help relieve strep throat pain.
• Sip warm beverages (tea with honey or lemon, herbal teas, clear soups), cold beverages, and eat frozen desserts (such
as ice cream or popsicles).
• Use a humidifier to keep your mouth and throat from drying out.
• The use of apple cider vinegar as a diluted solution to gargle is believed to be effective due to its antibacterial proper-
ties. However, vinegar is acidic and can be harmful to tooth enamel.
• Consult your doctor before using apple cider vinegar or any herbal home remedy.
15Running NoseA runny nose can be one of the most annoying symptoms of the common cold. Thankfully, there are several natural and home reme-
dies to try.
• Drink plenty of fluids: Drinking fluids and staying hydrated when dealing with a runny nose can be helpful if you also
have symptoms of nasal congestion. This ensures that mucus in your sinuses thins out to a runny consistency and is easy for you
to expel. Avoid beverages that dehydrate rather than hydrate. This includes drinks like coffee and alcoholic beverages.
• Hot teas: Hot beverages like tea may sometimes be more helpful than cold ones. This is because of their heat and steam,
which help open and decongest airways. Look for teas that contain anti-inflammatory and antihistamine herbs, such as chamo-
mile, ginger, mint, or nettle. Drinking hot herbal tea can help soothe a sore throat.
• Inhaling Hot steam has been shown to help treat a runny nose. A 2015 study of people with the common cold proved
that using steam inhalation was quite effective. It reduced illness recovery time by about one week compared to no steam
inhalation at all.
1. Heat clean water in a clean pot on your stove - DON’T let it get to a boil.
2. Place your face above the steam for 20–30 minutes at a time.
3. Take deep breaths through your nose. Take breaks if your face gets a too hot.
4. Blow your nose afterward to get rid of mucus.
• Spicy foods if you’re having symptoms of nasal congestion, eating spicy foods can possibly help.
