3 Comments for the Cough Home Remedy


Was sitting, miserably in bed last night reading your posts, desperately searching for some relief from an extremely sore throat and tickly cough. Star Anise kept popping up and I remembered that my kids had recently bought some Green Tea with Star Anise and Cinammon which they weren't fond of. So, made up a cup and for good measure added a good squeeze of lemon and a dollop of honey. At this point it actually tasted rather pleasant, but then decided to add a dash of tumeric for good measure, which made It look and tasted odd, rather than unpleasant. Drank most of it down and must say the annoying, tickly slightly phlemy cough subsided and I got the best night's sleep. The best thing was shortly after drinking it, my airways suddenly cleared and I could breath freely. I'm not sure which component was effective, but would definitely recommend you try this, maybe minus the tumeric (or perhaps that is the magic ingredient?!!). Feeling much better today

Turmeric is recommended for inflammation and to support the cardiovascular system; so, it was the turmeric. :-)


It was turmeric that did the magic


I just tried this and was immediately sick afterwards! Obviously it didn't agree with me.
