To stop a cough before it happens, take a sip of water and suck on it, move the water from side to side. As long as you have the water in your mouth you will not cough.
TAKE 1 TABLESPOON PURE HONEY AND ADD ABOUT A PINCH OF GROUNDED WHITE PEPPER AND YOUR COUGH WILL BE GONE IN ABOUT 3-4 DAYS NATURALLY. AND IF YOU DO THE SAME WITH BLACK PEPPER YOU WILL SPIT OUT MUCUS MORE EASILY. ALSO PUT GINGER PIECE IN UR TEA WHEN YOU MAKE IT ON THE STOVE, ITS VERY GOOD FOR A COLD.
Day time cough ONLY with no phlegm or stuff comes up the throat. Depends how often you cough make your own judgement. Get a medium size water melon and cut out white part between green skin and the red meat. Put it in cold water and bring to broil. Turn to med. heat cook for 1/2 hour, cool and drink. For serious day time cough a whole mater melon will cure, so what do you need? Do not use if you are coughing at night it will make it worse.
Just take half of spoon of pure honey in morning 1 hour before food and half a spoon at bed time before sleep.
1/4 tsp (red)cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp water
Mix and take by the teaspoon for a congested cough.
A substance similar to that found in the cough syrups is found in hot red pepper. Use red (cayenne) pepper with caution-it can irritate your tummy.
take 2 tablespoons of honey with one cup of orange juice
Eat a piece of dark chocolate (the higher the cocoa content the better) whenever you start to cough as it helps stop mucus production. It works wonders but not to much at a time as it also gets the bowels moving!
warm one teaspoon of honey and then stir in a teaspoon of lemon juice.
1 inch or so fresh ginger root, sliced thin or grated
1/2 a fresh lemon, sliced (peel & all)
1 clove garlic, mashed
~2 c water
Very generous spoonful honey
Place water, ginger, lemon, & garlic in saucepan; bring to boil, then turn down heat and simmer gently for 20 min. Strain into mugs and add lots of honey. The tea *will* get stronger if you let it sit! Most invigorating!
The garlic adds a bit of bitterness, but the honey masks that. This tea is very soothing to the throat and warms and opens the chest and nasal passages. Plus there are all those vitamins and other good things! I now make this tea at the first sign of a cold, which helps me fight it off. I find it more effective than the commercial hot lemon remedies, and of course cheaper!
