How To Use Fenugreek To Treat Colds Naturally

Yesterday, I talked about how we use thyme to naturally treat colds. Today, I want to talk about how fenugreek can be used to treat colds. Fenugreek is a spice that is used in cooking. It also has medicinal benefits.

Fenugreek naturally helps clear mucous, so this is a very helpful herb to use when you have head congestion or lung congestion.  It thins out your mucous and can ease the urge to cough. Fenugreek is one of the world’s oldest medicinal herbs and has many uses other than being used for colds.

How To Use Fenugreek To Treat Colds Naturally:

My husband and I take a fenugreek pill every couple of hours for a day when we take our thyme pills while we have a cold. We usually only have to do this for one day. Taking large doses of fenugreek can cause diarrhea in some people, but we have never had that problem, and like I said using these herbal methods, our colds are usually over in about a day.  I actually just buy fenugreek and then scoop it into empty capsules that I bought off of Amazon with my Swagbucks, since this is a much cheaper way for me to get fenugreek.

I mix some fenugreek into my kid’s applesauce if they have a cold for them to eat. Fenugreek has kind of a maple syrup smell & is really tasty.  I give them fenugreek 3-4 times in a day.

If you have fresh fenugreek leaves or dehydrated leaves, you could also make fenugreek tea. Just bring a pot of water to a simmer, add the fenugreek and simmer for 20 minutes, strain and drink. You can add honey as well since that can coat a sore throat and make it feel better.

Fenugreek & Nursing Moms:

I know many women who have taken fenugreek to increase their milk supply at the advice of their lactation consultants. I have never needed to use fenugreek in this manner, but when I had a cold and was taking thyme and fenugreek, I definitely had an overabundance of milk, so it definitely worked to increase my milk supply as well. You might want to keep this in mind if you are nursing, have an abundance of milk & want to take fenugreek for a cold. Make sure that you have a pump handy for any extra milk that you might need to pump.

If you have diabetes or a blood clotting disorder or are on blood thinners, you will want to talk to your doctor before using fenugreek since fenugreek can be contraindicated with these conditions. Fenugreek can be used for labor induction, so if you are pregnant, don’t use fenugreek.

Just a common sense note – I am not a doctor. These are just methods that have been used for years, and I have learned from research, personal experience and have been passed down for generations. If you are concerned about something with your health and think that you should see a doctor, then by all means do & take his or her advice.

    Is there a trick to filling your on capsules? I bought powdered fenugreek and filled my own, it took forever and was such a mess!

    I have used fenugreek for about 25 years with a combination of oil of eucalyptus – dabbing it on the collar of my pj’s and pillowtop as it does not stain for the purpose of getting rid of an oncoming cold. I usually take it for 2-3 days to knock out the cold completely. It is extremely effective and very cheap, financially with no side effects. These are also totally natural products with virtually no chemicals. I highly recommend this useage as I have been using it for may years with no side effects! I was originally told about this remedy from a lady in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory of Canada.
