Why you should NOT use chemical cough syrup
Believe it or not, coughing is good for you. It is a powerful way for your body to clean your lungs from foreign objects and phlegm. If you stop the cough at once you damage the natural defense mechanisms of your body. The best way to get rid of your cough is natural cough remedies - which help your body spit out whatever it is trying to spit out. Only then will you really get rid of your cough.
Chemical cough syrup will stop the cough and your body will be "stuck" with all that dirt it is trying to remove. It is a matter of time until you start coughing again. These are the top 3 natural cough remedies. It's easy and powerful:
Natural cough remedies
1. Thyme leaves and honey -The combination of honey and thyme creates one of the best natural cough remedies. This especially helps for cough caused by infection in your throat. Thyme also strengthens your immune system and so we get two great advantages from one product. Just mix 10 fresh thyme leaves into half a cup of honey (I always recommend organic honey) and wait a few hours. You can have 2 spoons of this honey (without the leaves) a day. You can also add hot water and drink it as herbal tea.
2. Oregano Tea - Another winner among natural cough remedies is - Oregano leaves. Those contain a substance called "thymol". This substance is useful for killing bacteria. It also helps to release accumulated phlegm and turn dry cough to "wet" and productive cough. Brew 1-2 tablespoons of fresh oregano leaves in boiling water for 10 min, let it cool and drink. You can do this twice a day.
3. Nutrition - avoiding these foods will dramatically reduce the amount of phlegm you produce and reduce your coughing. This is one of the most powerful Natural cough remedies out there. These are the foods you should try to avoid as much as possible: Cow's milk products, peanuts and cereal products, citrus, banana, white sugar and white flour. I know what you're thinking now: What is there left to eat? It's hard to avoid all of these foods, but at least try to reduce the amounts. When you get hungry and prepare your next sandwich, remember that having whole wheat bread instead of white bread is already one of your natural cough remedies.... Even Small changes will make a difference.
