Home Remedy For Cough and Cold
Before I realized the Winter season was over, with a change in the weather came cold and flu. No matter what I do to prevent and protect my family from escaping the virus, we will get one cold a year. This flu happens mostly in changing seasons, from winter to warm weather, especially when all the activities just began, our body wearying and inevitably come down with a cold.
Usually, I treated the common cold and flu with over-the-counter medicine. But when you irritate with an inflamed nose and throat, medicate yourself round the clock, and yet no improvement. You know you need something more, something that can help soothe the pain.
While we know that there is nothing we can do to cure a common cold completely, and an antibiotic is not an option, fantastic home remedies are passed along throughout the generations to help ease the symptoms.
This natural cough reliever and flu-fighting hot drink are easy to do with minimal effort, especially when you are not feeling well and need much rest.
Here is a remarkable home remedy I've been taking since I was a little girl. Although I got used to the taste, my kids need to learn to like it, and so far, they have done an excellent job.
Three tablespoons of raw honey, or Manuka honey, best: coat the throat. It provides some relief and has mild antibacterial properties that reduce inflammation and attack the bacteria that cause pain.
2 inches Lemon Grass: is enriched with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help decongestant your respiratory system
Half-cut of Lemon or Lime: the astringent juice will help shrink swollen throat tissue and create a hostile (acidic) environment for viruses and bacteria.
Two inches of Ginger is a natural analgesic that can soothe the sore throat's irritation and is anti-inflammatory.
1-inch fresh turmeric or 1 teaspoon powdered Tumeric, or 1 drop of essential oil. Turmeric contains curcumin, which may have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. It is also beneficial for conditions such as dry cough.
1 cup of water
Suppose you have a cough mix of 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil in your cup. Eucalyptus oil has the benefit of silencing the cough and can also help to get rid of the mucus from your chest.
Put water, Ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass in the small pan, boil, simmer for another 10 minutes, and turn it off while it is still hot add honey. Put aside, and before you drink, add lemon juice. Drink it while it is still warm, twice a day — the best time to take it is when the symptom first appears.
