Home Remedies for Cough

Natural Remedies for
Cough
Coughing is a reflex reaction that, in most cases, allows the body to clear the respiratory passages from obstructive substances.

The remedy one chooses must target the cause, not the cough! One may recur to a cough suppressant, but if the cause is not targeted one might be exposing ones body to a more serious complication by interrupting the body's efforts to clear a blockage in your system.

Most of the time, cough is the result of a bacterial (i.e. bronchitis) or viral (i.e. Flu) infection. Persistent coughs, that last longer than a few days, may be the result of an advanced bacterial infection requiring a course of antibiotics. Consult your physician immediately, if this is the case.

Whatever the case may be, I suggest the use of natural expectorants and anti inflammatories instead of cough suppressant.

Ginger, thyme, rosemary, eucalyptus, garlic, oregano and cayenne pepper are commonly used natural expectorants.

Try the following recipe: Honey Tea Infused with herbs- Boil in water for 15 minutes any of spices mentioned above. Add honey and the juice of a lemon. A tablespoon of Vinegar may also be added. Drink this tea while it is warm and as much desired (lots of water is also helpful). All of these ingredients have considerable expectorant effects! 

Another remedy for cough is to improvise a humidifier at home by heating up some water. Infuse the warm water with any of these herbs. Inhale the vapors from the water as depicted in this picture:Use a towel to trap and make the most out of the vapors. NOTE: Extreme caution should be used. Vapors may burn your face if too close or too hot. This treatment simulates a typical, conventional nebulization treatment. The vapors help ease the mucus making it easier, for the body to clear the passages. 

An alternative to home remedies continuing the natural path is a supplement called Calabash Plus (Totumo). It can be purchased www.healthandnatureshop.com. This is the link to the product: http://www.healthandnatureshop.c...
