42 Home Remedies for Cold and Cough


I tried this for my mate when he had a cough that just wouldn't go away. It may or may not work for you, but it worked for him.

4 parts dried Mint leaves (if you can't find dried fresh will work)

3 parts ground ginger

3 parts ground cinnamon

2 parts ground black pepper

1 pinch ground cloves

Mix together and put into a teabag. No teabag? Coffee filters work too. Just fill and tie the top so nothing falls out. Steep in 8 ounces of hot water for 5 minutes and serve hot.

Two cups in a day killed my mate's cold but take as needed for your situation. Good luck!


Tulsi leaves cure common cold

The best way to cure a cold is to take black elderberry syrup, two tablespoons twice a day. For prevention take two tablespoons after the first time yoou go outside. I discovered this in late 2010 and since then my wife and I have had only one cold eeach. Once when I couldn't get any closeby I had the beginnings of a cold and took St. John's wort instead tbe got over it by the nest cay. But St. John's wort products vary in strength and quality.

If you stick an onion in your socks and boil them then drink the soup this will reduce your fever.

Washing all over with an anti-dandruff shampoo containing Zinc Pyrithione at the first sign of the flu seems to work for me.


I woke up with a swore throat yesterday, which quickly moved down to my chest. This morning I felt really congested and couldn't breath deep without coughing. I have been taking that Muchus Relief Expectorant, but without much results. So, I read through the home remedies and found one that interested me and that was radishes and horse radish sauce (without mayo in it). I also verified this theory with other naturalist websites that seem to corroborate the mucus clearing advice.

So, I went to the store and bought a small jar of almost pure grade horse radish and some radishes. Within 45 mins. most of this phlegm has seemed to clear aside and I can take deep breaths now without caughing. This is really amazing!!

Note of advice: If your bronchial passages are sore, be careful not to breath in the horse radish sauce, unless you like pain.


Hey guys I was having a sore throat for around a week . take a glass of warm water and mix it with one teaspoon of salt and gargle twice a day(empty stomach) once in morning and once in the evening. take 1 teaspoon of aniseed, 1 inch of cinnamon stick, 1/2 teaspoon of whole black pepper, 1 tea spoon of ginger (crushed), 3 green cardamoms, 2 tea bags of English breakfast ( red label etc) and 3 cups of water. put every thing on a boiler, let it boil and reduce the flame to simmer, let it boil for 20 minutes after that, the liquid will be reduced to 2 cups, add 3 tea spoons of honey to it. and you have 2 doses of your own home remedy use it every 3 to 4 hrs and you will be alright in 3 days.
