We've all had it that annoying persistent cough that has decided your body will be its permanent residence. It attacks you at meetings, it attacks you when you're sleeping, it even attacks you mid conversation. Here are my 3 Proven home remedies to help you beat that cough that refuses to go away.
**Please note garlic is very potent. You may smell like garlic for a while. But its your call get rid of the cough and smell like you were trying to keep vampires away or keep coughing and have everyone stare at you all day long asking you are you okay.
A spoonful of raw local honey with a squeeze of lemon works great especially during the spring and fall seasons. I however find that since this is attributed to those with spring/fall allergies it does not work as well in the other months. The reason raw, local honey is best compared to your grocery store honey is each area has specific allergens. Thus the local honey is tailored to those specific plants/flowers/and trees.
This tea is is one of my favorites for coughs and colds. Your body will thank you for this one. Take fresh (1/2 cup) garlic cloves, peeled, cut ginger (1 cup) , and cut a whole lemon in half, put it in your tea pot. I have a tea pot with an infuser already attached. It makes a huge difference with the strength of your tea. Boil and let tea seep in the goodness of the garlic, ginger, and lemon for at least 5 minutes. This gives it an opportunity to cool a little as well. Then add honey to taste.
