    Amazing tips to cure seasonal diseases

    Hello everyone, hope you all are fit and fine😄.Today, i will share my own experience which i recently faced when my elder daughter
    got cough and cold and not responding to any medicines which i gave to her. Its my weak point that my whole world revolves around my two daughters and i cann’t  see them in pain. There was a moment when i was very depressed  & then suddenly i remembered the old remedy which i had totally forgotten. When i applied it on my daughter which she totally disagreed to, but i forcefully applied it on her then the magic happened. She was totally fit and fine the very next morning. So, do you want to know the name of that magical remedy? It is none other than KEROSENE OIL:oops::oops:.

    image

       Don’t be afraid. If you have fever, cough and cold then just rub this on your feet for atleast 5-10 minutes. If you rub it at night before going to bed then you will notice when you wake up you will be perfectly fine. There is no need to take antibiotics because it acts just like crocin medicine. When i get fever i just rub this oil under my feet and it works really well.
       If you have sore throat then you can rub it on your neck and if you have chest congestion then it can be rub on your chest.
        Friends, i am not in favour of taking antibiotics for such seasonal diseases, when anyone can cure by just doing simple remedies, then what’s the use of taking medicines.
    Prevention of chickenpox and measles
    It is rightly said that PRECAUTION IS BETTER THAN CURE .Anyone can save themselves from chickenpox and measles if they take precauctionery homeopathic
