CHAPTER I:
The Problem and Its Background

Introduction.
Its the season of rains and
typhoons, and the season of cough
and cold during every month of
June to the end of December, and
to protect you from these common
rainy season afflictions or to help
speed up healing, we have a lot of

Introduction
Cough is a reflex action to clear
your airways of mucus and irritants
such as dust or smoke. It's rarely a
sign of anything serious. A Dry
cough" means it's tickly and doesn't
produce any phlegm (thick mucus). A
Chesty cough" means phlegm is
produced to help clear your airway.
Cold is a viral infection which is
characterized by sneezing and runny
nose.

Introduction.
The common cold and cough
affects millions of people each
year. There is no cure for the
common cold, but colds can be
prevented by carefully avoiding
contact with cold sufferers and by
remembering to frequently wash
your hands. Symptoms of an
influenza or "flu" virus infection
may be similar to a cold but are
usually more severe.

In the Philippines, Filipinos are


very prone to the different disease
during the rainy season. This study
aims to illustrate a comparative
description between the remedies
that are being widely used and
which is more safe and effective
based on the perception of the
respondents.

Hypothesis
This study is expecting for the
readers to establish this hypothesis:
There
is
no
difference
or
comparison on the effect of using
herbal
medicine
to
synthetic
medicine when it comes in treating
common cough and cold among
high school students of Colegio de
San Gabriel Arcangel

Statement of the Problem


The following are the problems that the study
would like to answer:

1.What are the advantages and disadvantages of


the herbal medicines for common cough and

used for cough and colds?
3.Who are those at risk of having cough and colds?
4.When cough and colds a problem?
5.Which preparation is better or favorable to use
by the students of Colegio de San Gabriel
Arcangel?

Scope and Limitation .


The study will focus on the pros and
cons of the herbal versus synthetic
remedies for your cough and common
colds. The study will only use
descriptive type of study with the use
of survey form of gathering data. The
setting of survey is only limited to the
students of Colegio de San Gabriel
Arcangel located at Fatima I, Area E,
Sapang Palay, City of San Jose del

The information will be gathered in
the internet, textbooks, and other
related literatures and from experts
of this related study.

CHAPTER II:
Review of Related Literature

Foreign Study
According to a study in China. It
sought
to
describe
the
epidemiology of viral respiratory
tract infections and patterns in
prescriptions of cough and cold
medications among young children
who were suffering from viral
respiratory tract infections (vRTIs).

Foreign Study
Another reason to eat more
chocolate. It could keep you from
coughing, according to doctors at the
British National Health Service . In
their study, about 300 people at 13
hospitals who had persistent coughs
were given the chemical Theobromine,
which is derived from cocoa, twice a
day for 14 days. Early results showed
that
60
percent
of
patients
experienced some cough relief after
taking the cocoabased treatment.

Local Study

Foreign Literature
Sore throat, nasal congestion,
sneezing and coughing--it's all part of
the discomfort of having a cold.
According to mayoclinic.com, most
adults have between 2 and 4 colds a
year. If you have a high fever,
swollen glands, a cough with colored
phlegm, or severe sinus pain, see
your doctor .

Foreign Literature
A cough that lasts between
three weeks and eight weeks,
improving by the end of the period,
is known as a sub-acute cough. A
persistent cough that lasts for over
eight weeks is known as a chronic
cough. Most coughs will clear up,
or at least significantly improve,
within two weeks. If you cough up
blood or have a barking cough,
consult with a doctor.

Local Study
The performance of cough, cold,
and allergy (hay fever) remedies in
the Philippines remained fairly
sluggish in 2014, with current value
sales increasing by 3%. This growth
can be attributed to the erratic
weather
conditions
in
the
Philippines, which boosted the
incidence of coughs and colds in
both metropolitan and provincial
areas.

Local Study
Rapid changes in temperature
brought about health
problems
such as coughs, colds, fever and flu,
which sustained the demand for
medication.
By
the
end
of
2014,total revenue for cough, cold
and allergy (hay fever) remedies in
the Philippines reached PHP11.9
billion.
