10 Home remedies for a cough. Do you cough a lot? These are the best home and natural cough
remedies; They are quite effective so we recommend you try them before you medicate yourself
or go to a doctor. A cough is one of the most common and annoying
evils that exist. Luckily there are home natural remedies for a cough, which means that most
of the time you will not have to resort to medicines or doctors to relieve it. Obviously if after treating some of these
remedies the discomfort persists, then it would be a good idea to consult a specialist. 1. Honey “Syrup”. There is scientific evidence that honey can
be effective in the treatment of a cough and sore throat. You can take it directly or, for best results,
mix honey with coconut oil and lemon juice. You can also treat the old remedy of the grandmothers
before going to sleep: a drink of whiskey or cognac mixed with honey. 2. A hot bath. Open the hot water, close the windows and
turn off any type of fan. Steam can be the cough’s worst enemy; but also your best ally. The steam works by smoothing the airways and
loosening the nasal congestion and phlegm in your throat and lungs. (Although if you suffer from asthma, the steam
can exacerbate a cough). 3. Black pepper and honey tea. For a wet cough, you can try a pepper and
honey tea remedy; It is said to work because pepper stimulates the circulation and flow
of phlegm, and honey is a natural relief from coughing. Use a teaspoon of fresh pepper and two tablespoons
of honey in a cup, and then fill it with boiling water. Cover and let soak for 15 minutes,
strain and drink. (Eye, for people who suffer from gastritis,
is not recommended to eat pepper of any kind). 4. Thyme tea. In Germany, thyme is a treatment against a
cough, respiratory infections and officially approved for bronchitis. The small leaves of the herb contain a powerful
remedy that calms a cough and relaxes the muscles of the trachea while reducing inflammation. You can make thyme tea by soaking two tablespoons
of crushed thyme in a cup of boiling water for ten minutes, and then strain. Adding honey and lemon improves the flavor
and adds strength to the remedy. 5. Drink plenty of fluids. Drinking lots of fluids, either any of the
teas listed here or plain water, can be very good at relieving cough. The fluids help thin the mucus and keep the
membranes moist, which helps reduce coughing. 6. Natural drops for a cough. A menthol cough drops numb the back of the
throat, which helps tame the cough reflex. 7. Suck a lemon. This popular remedy is really efficient. Prepare
half a lemon and add salt and pepper, and then suck it. 8. Commercial mixtures of cough tea. Most health stores have a variety of cough
teas. The tea of mint, hyssop or elderflower, for
example, are very good for this. 9. Ginger. Ginger has many properties and has been used
since ancient times for its medicinal properties. It has antihistaminic and decongestant abilities. You can make a ginger tea by adding 12 slices
of fresh ginger in a pot with three cups of water. Simmer for 20 minutes and remove from heat.
Strain it and add a spoonful of honey and squeeze a lemon. Test it; if it is very spicy add more water. 10. Licorice root. Licorice root (or licorice) has been used
for centuries to treat a cough. Licorice can help soothe inflamed or irritated
throats to cure coughs. You can suck the licorice stick or let it
boil for 20 minutes. Strain it, add a spoonful of honey and a lemon and drink. (SOURCE: To learn more about 10 Home remedies for a
