If you or someone you know is fighting a cough, the following home remedy will help in shortening its duration as well as alleviate its symptoms.
This remedy should be consumed at the first sign of a cough or cold.
Ingredients you need to prepare this cough remedy:
Raw Organic Honey
– Multiple studies suggest that honey is just as effective in helping a cough as other traditionally prescribed medicine. Honey holds potent anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties.
This sweet and tasty ingredient strengthens the white blood cells that fight bacterial and viral infections. Make sure the honey is not heat treated so that the raw honey contains all the essential nutrients and enzymes. Locally sourced honey is the best choice!
Cold-Pressed Coconut oil
–Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid that eliminates bacteria, fungi and viruses which helps starve infections off.
– Turmeric can combat inflammation and boost your immune system.
– Cinnamon has anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal characteristics.
– Lemons are rich in flavonoids and Vitamin C, which assist in maintaining the body’s natural protection systems.
How to prepare it:
Combine all the ingredients and avoid heating up the honey as it will lose all the healthy nutrients and enzymes!
At the first sign of a cold or cough, take 1-2 teaspoons, 3 to 5 times a day until you feel relief.
*Due to the risk of botulism avoid giving honey to infants under 1 year old!
