Herbs and plants for the treatment of coughs and sore throats without drugs

By Hellinoos.

Do you, since you caught a cold, cough more than actually talk?

Don’t worry any more since mother nature has gifted us with numerous herbs that aid us in dealing effectively with coughs and sore throats.

These herbs can either be consumed as herbal tea (infused) or as a homemade syrup (I’ll provide you with the recipe later on). Herbs with expectorant and decongestant properties can be combined with each other as a hot infusion which we can consume it as a decoction with a little honey and lemon or even make steam inhalations out of it as it will help us in efficient removal of mucous secretions from the lungs. There are many herbs that can effectively address cough that may be related to various causes such as colds, flu, smoking and diseases such as bronchitis, pharyngitis and inflammation of the larynx.

How to relieve cough directly with alternative and effective ways?

Drink herbal teas

Drink lukewarm chamomile teas. Chamomile has a soothing effect. The same applies to the linden. Even some herbs like eucalyptus, mint, anise and fennel, are antitussives. A beverage of these herbs can relieve you greatly. Another antitussive herb is elm, which forms a protective layer over and soothing of irritated mucous membranes of the throat. Drink hot milk with honey, if the cough is accompanied by pain in the neck.

Make hot steam inhalations

You can put it in boiling water two drops of eucalyptus essential oil. The steam inhalations combined with eucalyptus soften your throat and help remove sputum.

Eat smart

Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables because the vitamin C content helps the immune system. Take a hot soup, if you have a dry cough. The soup has anti-inflammatory action, that can alleviate the irritation of the throat which causes dry cough. Additional nutrients contained in soups, can strengthen the immune system.

Pressure exercises

Pressing fingers on our chest can make us relax and relieve us from coughing. With your middle fingers (both hands) press for a few minutes, the “pits” located under the tabs on the left and right of the sternum (where the bone begins the clavicle).

Visit your doctor if:

You phlegm with blood The phlegm is very thick You persistent dry cough Lasts more than one week Cough accompanied by shortness

Do not take cough medicines without consulting the doctor. If the cough is productive, ie you have phlegm, they must be removed from the organism, and antitussives suppress the cough reflex that removes them.

Things to avoid:

Intense physical exercise Stop smoking completely Avoid talking aimlessly

Did you know?

According to research from the University of Pennsylvania, honey is equally effective in combating coughs of children as the cough medicines sold without prescription. Specifically 2 tsp Honey can reduce the severity and frequency of nighttime cough, as the honey soothes irritated throat.
