Get Your Cough Away!

Pucker Up and Suck a Lemon

 

A cough is an action the body takes to get rid of substances that are irritating to the air passages, which carry the air a person breathes in from the nose and mouth to the lungs.

Doctors classify coughs into 2 categories, acute and chronic. Acute coughs can be divided into infectious and non-infectious causes. Infectious causes of acute cough include viral upper respiratory infections (the common cold), sinus infections, pneumonia, and whooping cough. Non-infectious causes of cough include flare-ups of the following chronic conditions like chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, and environmental allergies.

Cough can cause Mucus, Bacterial infections, Common cold (viral respiratory infection) and Sinusitis (inflammation or infection of the sinuses). You will experience headache and runny nose (nasal congestion).

We always never fail to provide home remedies. People are always reluctant to go for a check even they know the consequences. Take some fennel plant leaves, clean and make chutney. Then eat with your food often. Fennel contains anethole, which can explain some of its medical effects: it, or its polymers, acts as phytoestrogens.

For a wet cough, you can try black pepper and honey remedy that is said to work because the pepper stimulates circulation and mucus flow and the honey is a natural cough reliever. Use one teaspoon of freshly ground pepper and two tablespoons of honey in a MUG, and fill with boiling water. Cover and allow steeping for 15 minutes, strain and sipping.

Pucker up and suck a lemon. Indeed, this popular remedy calls for sprinkling a section of lemon with salt and pepper and sucking on it. (If nothing else, you will probably be so distracted by having a mouthful of lemon that you may forget to cough.) And if the idea of sucking on a lemon lacks appeal, you can try hot-buttered lemonade and swap the sugar with honey for good measure.
