4 Homemade Remedies For A Cough

A cough is kinda like a brother/best friend to catarrh and honestly, it’s one of the most embarrassing infection to have (my opinion though).

So, you know how you have to hold your chin up every now and then to keep back Mr cough from busting out loud amidst a group in the quietest and sane environment.

Anyway, here’s how it works, when there is a blockage or irritant in your throat or upper air passages, your brain thinks a foreign element is present and tells your body to cough to remove that element.

A cough can be as a result of a viral infection, common cold, flu, and smoking or health problems such as asthma, tuberculosis, and lung cancer and it comes with symptoms like itchy throat, chest pain, and congestion.

So, here are 4 homemade remedies to help you

Well, since ginger and garlic often go along together as siblings in most recipes, then it only makes sense that they both perform similar functions as far as cold and catarrh is concerned.

To use the ginger remedy, you can either crush the ginger slightly and pour into a cup of hot water to make ginger tea or you could dice the ginger into smaller bits and chew on all day.

Try these remedies to get rid of that disturbing cough and share this article with your friends to help them.
