Botanical name: 

The following method has been a successful one with me, in the treatment at the beginning of a cold, or during the earliest symptoms of coryza. I have used from fifteen to twenty drops of avena sativa, in hot water every two or three hours during the developing stages of this disorder.

As a result of this simple treatment the symptoms disappear and the disease is aborted.
