Symptoms, Causes and Diagnosis of Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI)
URTI (Upper Respiratory Tract Infection) or the common cold is a catarrhal and inflammatory condition of the upper respiratory tract, caused due to viral, allergic or mixed infection. Symptoms include sneezing, coughing, a running nose, heaviness of the head followed by inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose, bodyache, fever with chills and loss of appetite. Allergens, viruses and bacteria are the common factors that cause this disease. A cough may be caused by inflammation of the larynx or pharynx due to changes in weather. There is a higher incidence of cough during winter. The intake of catarrh-forming foods such as white bread, meat, sugar, porridge, puddings and pies, often contribute to bringing on cough, in winter. Hay fever, flu, sinusitis, etc are associated causes of this disease.
URTI is a viral infection involving the nose, throat and windpipe (upper respiratory tract). It usually lasts for 7 to 10 days, and can be highly contagious for the first 2 to 3 days. It is transmitted by infected people, usually when they cough or sneeze. It is not uncommon for people to have a cold many times in a year. Colds can occur any time of the year, but they usually occur in the cooler months. In warmer places, colds are most common when it rains. Most people recover without any treatment.
Causes of Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI)
Common colds are caused by viral infections.
There are over 200 different types of cold viruses, the most common being the rhinovirus. Since there are so many different types of cold viruses, it is highly unlikely that an individual can develop immunity to them.
Symptoms develop as a result of the body's response to the virus.
Cough is nature's way of clearing secretions from the nose, throat or lungs.
Symptoms of Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
The following are the signs that indicate the presence of this ailment:
- Running or blocked nose, sneezing, sore throat, congestion, headache, low grade fever with body pain, loss of appetite, lethargy and insomnia.
- You should see a doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Temperature (mouth) > 38.5°C, severe pain in the chest, stomach or ears, enlarged lymph nodes (glands) in the neck, shortness of breath, wheezing and sore throat.
- Fever, a sore throat or runny nose that persists for more than one week also calls for medical attention.
Diagnosis of Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI)
The medical history and a physical examination are usually sufficient to make the diagnosis.
Tips for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI) Care
In addition to taking over-the-counter drugs, you may try the following measures to relieve discomfort during the illness:
- Rest until symptoms subside.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Gargle with warm water or use throat lozenges.
- Use a humidifier while sleeping.
- Inhale steam to reduce nasal congestion.
- Use petroleum jelly around the nose and lips, for raw, chapped skin.

- Avoid smoking.
- Do not share articles like towels or cutlery.
- Avoid close contact with people who have a cold.
Conventional treatments for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI)
- Analgesics or antipyretics like acetaminophen (Tylenol) for relief from pain and fever
- NSAIDs like Ibuprofen (Advil) for relief from inflammation
- Oral decongestants like pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) to decrease congestion
- Oral antihistamines like Chlorpheniramine and Loratadine to reduce allergic responses
- Nasal decongestants like Phenylephrine and Oxymetazoline to reduce nasal congestion
- Antitussives like Dextromethorphan to prevent cough
- Antibiotics, depending on the type of infection
Some of these drugs may cause drowsiness. Avoid driving or using heavy machinery after taking them.
Please consult your physician for long-term use (over six weeks) of over-the-counter drugs.

The Biogetica Approach
Biogetica is a collective of Drs and Holistic Healthcare practitioners dedicated to holistic healing, with evidence based natural remedies & advanced bio energetic therapies.
- Heal the entire being
Heal the entire being
Biogetica has a unique and comprehensive Holographic model of healing which synthesizes all the medicine systems to simultaneously ease physical, mental, emotional layers of your being.
You, as a living, thinking, feeling, vibrating being, are much more than a collection of inter-related chemical processes. You are life itself. Life can never be reduced to a series of chemical reactions as chemical reactions cannot create life. Every thought, emotion, vibration or action leads to a series of chemical changes in the body. All ailments are a result of disharmony in the life force. Biogetica recognizes this and balances the ENTIRE BEING, bringing mind, body and soul into harmony, for lasting results. Treating an ailment on molecular level alone, seldom has a lasting effect as the untreated social, emotional, mental, spiritual and energetic patterns cause the ailment to manifest once again on a physical plane. Holistic healing is necessary for lasting relief. Biogetica, therefore, uses Resonance Homeopathy to harmonize the entire being; flower essences to attune the mind; Ayurvedic, Tibetan and Chinese herbs to balance the energetic and the physiological manifestation of the five elements; and nutraceuticals to coordinate cellular nutrition.
- Look for natural solutions
Look for natural solutions
Our bodies are made of and supported by nature and therefore can only be healed by nature in the long term. Chemicals are often necessary for immediate change in an acute situation but tend to do the body more harm than good in the long run. Hence, Biogetica’s Doctors are dedicated to providing natural solutions that are supported by evidence and prior use. To us, the argument is fairly obvious: One would use wood to fix a desk made of wood or metal to fix a car made of metal, so why use chemicals to fix a body made of nature?
Nature has blessed the Earth with natural medicines and healing mechanisms. It would be wise not to ignore them. The intelligence of nature is much greater than that of man. Unfortunately, man still focuses on chemical medicines, as they can be patented and sold for huge profits. Allopathic attempts to treat chronic ailments by interfering directly with the chemical processes using man-made substances, has essentially been a failure. We claim to be cracking the gene code, but we still can't cure a cold with man-made substances!!! Homeopathic and Naturopathic methods are never studied and verified by governing bodies, as there is no one who will spend millions obtaining an approval on herbs, knowing that they cannot be patented and sold exclusively by them.
- Appeal to the balancing forces inherent in all nature
Appeal to the balancing forces inherent in all nature
Life cannot be recreated with chemical interactions and there is much more to life than molecular interactions. Our bodies are the most advanced pharmacies on the planet and millions of functions happen each minute with astounding precision. Biogetica therapies are designed to appeal to the balancing forces apparent in all nature by reminding and stimulating the body towards a certain function. The nutraceuticals in our kits provide specific nutrition for a function, the herbs in our kits balance the terrain of the body so that it is able to perform that function and the resonance homeopathics are designed to remind the body to be in resonance with that very function.
- From medication to meditation
From medication to meditation
Good health and freedom involves every aspect of our being including diet, lifestyle, exercise, emotional states, thoughts and energetic patterns. Biogetica Drs have therefore designed diet, nutrition, exercise and meditation protocols specific to various life situations. We encourage you to actively partake in these for best results.
