As the sky turns grey, clouds heavy with rain, sitting at home with a hot cup of tea seems to be the best idea ever. However, not all of us are lucky as we are out and about in the monsoons too. Rains, though beautiful, bring with them the risk of many diseases. Simple issues like a cough, cold or allergies can easily escalate into bigger problems such as malaria, dengue, viral fever and more.

But we can overcome these issues with simple monsoon home remedies and strengthen our immune system to stay healthy and happy.
