Home remedy for tickly coughs


The aim of this ‘recipe’ is not to titillate your tastebuds, but to afford you a nights sleep (or a less irritating day :-)) if you’re suffering from a dry, tickly cough.  I discovered this mixture after having tried what seemed like every over-the-counter remedy on sale, as well as numerous prescription medicines. The taste is a bit unusual, so you might have to use a bit of coercion with children. In my experience though, it’s well worth it as it really works better than anything else.

As a rule, coughs should not be suppressed as it’s the body’s way of expelling germs, dust and other irritants. However, if you have one of those irritating dry coughs that just go on and on, then this is definitely worth a try.

Ingredients (one dose)

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (organic if possible)

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger (optional)

1/4 glass of boiling water

Drop of cold water to cool mixture if necessary

Melt the honey by adding to boiling water, then add the other ingredients one by one. Mix well and drink.

Honey should not be given to children under the age of one. If your cough lasts over ten days, you have trouble breathing or blood in the sputum you should consult a doctor. This post is provided for informational purposes only and is not meant to replace a trained healthcare provider.
