The most important natural recipes for treating a cough at home:


 In the previous article, we talked about the types of coughs.


 Some types of cough can only be treated with medication.  Like bacterial infections, we need to take an antibiotic.  Or asthma, we need to treat and control asthma.


 As for coughs resulting from a viral infection such as the common cold, or allergies, for example, we can relieve these symptoms through some home remedies.


 These recipes also help calm coughs of all kinds.  But if the cause of the cough needs treatment, these recipes will relieve symptoms and are not sufficient on their own to treat.


 Honey:


 Natural formulated honey is considered one of the best treatment options to soften the throat and overcome cough.


 Mix two teaspoons of honey with your favorite herbal tea or warm water and lemon.  Enjoy the delicious taste and the soft feeling in the throat.


 Lemon juice helps treat congestion.  While honey helps soften the throat, especially in cases of dry cough.


 You can also have a teaspoon of honey instead of adding it to water or tea.


 Probiotic compounds:

 Probiotics will not help treat a cough directly.  But it helps maintain the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut and gut.


 This balance strengthens the body's immunity.  And it contributes to treating and combating colds, influenza, or weather allergies.


 Milk is one of the foods rich in probiotics.  We can also get them in the form of nutritional supplements available in pharmacies.


 Bromelain in Pineapple:


 You may not think of pineapple as a cough remedy.  But this is really effective.  This is due to the enzyme bromelain, which is found in the pineapple fruit.  And it helps to suppress the cough and soften the mucous secretions in the throat.


 In order to get the best benefits found in pineapple and bromelain, eat a slice of pineapple or freshly squeezed pineapple juice (100 ml) three times a day.


 Dietary supplements rich in the enzyme bromelain should not be taken by children or adults who take blood thinners.


 Also, be careful not to share with antibiotics such as amoxicillin.  Because it (bromelain) increases the absorption of the antibiotic.


 Mint:


 Peppermint leaves are known for their various health benefits.


 The menthol in mint softens the throat and acts as a decongestant.  It also helps to dissolve mucous secretions.


 You can get the needed benefit by drinking peppermint tea or inhaling peppermint steam from a steam bath.


 To prepare a steam bath, add 3-4 drops of peppermint oil per 150ml of boiling water.


 Place a towel over your head and take a deep breath over the steam rising from the boiling water with mint.


 Thyme:


 Thyme is used to treat respiratory diseases.


 The active substances in thyme leaves help eliminate coughing and relieve bronchitis symptoms.


 Thyme leaves contain compounds called flavonoids, which help relax the muscles of the pharynx.


 You can prepare thyme tea by adding two teaspoons of dried thyme leaves to a cup of boiling water.


 Cover a cup and leave it for 10 minutes.  Then enjoy the taste and benefit.


 Gargle water and salt:


 The recipe might sound too simple.  But gargling with salt water can help soothe an itchy throat that causes a cough.


 Mix 1/4 - 1/2 quarter to 1/2 teaspoon of salt with 1 cup (230 ml) of warm water.  This helps relieve pharyngeal irritation.


 Relying on gargling is not recommended for children under 6 years of age.  Due to their inability to gargle well at this age.


 Drink plenty of water and non-caffeinated fluids:


 And at the top of the list is water.  It is very important to drink plenty of water, to remove toxins from the body.


 As for liquids, any type of herbal tea or liquids not rich in caffeine are a good choice for a healthy body.  Like green tea, anise, or chamomile.


 Ginger:


 Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties.  Boosts body immunity and relieves pain.


 You can prepare your own ginger tea with fresh ginger root.


 Boil a slice of fresh ginger with water.  Then leave it a little in the warm water.


 Add a teaspoon of honey to increase the benefit in relieving a dry cough.  And enjoy the taste.


 Turmeric:


 Turmeric contains curcumin.  It is a compound with anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.


 Turmeric has many health benefits, including in the treatment of dry cough and various respiratory health problems, such as bronchitis and asthma.


 You can add it to your diet, and when you share it with black pepper.  Enhances the absorption of turmeric into the bloodstream.


 You can also get it in dietary supplements and turmeric capsules from pharmacies.


 I ask God Almighty for your continued health and wellness.  Take good care of yourself especially this coming months, as it is flu season.  And the Corona virus is still running and having fun!
