Home Remedies for Cough

The ever dirty air of Kathmandu along with the monsoon rains can play havoc on our health. As the monsoon rain pours, soaking us mercilessly (or maybe even sympathetically for some of us who don’t get enough water to shower everyday), getting a bad case of cough at this time of the year is a common thing. For those who believe in home remedies and wish to avoid taking chemical medicines, here are a few things you can try at home.

  1. Mix equal parts of ginger juice and honey and have it 2-3 times in a day which is fine for cough.

  2. Cinnamon is a well recognized herb which is used for cooking. Make a cup of tea and put some cinnamon to it to relief the cough. 
  3. Gargle sage leaves and elder blossom tea with a little almond oil, oil of clove, and honey to reduce the cough and soothe the throat.

  4. One good Home Remedy for Cough is the root of the turmeric plant which is helpful in a dry cough. The root should be baked and crushed. This powder should be taken in three gram dosage two times daily, in the morning and evening.

  5. Another effective Home Remedy for Cough is a sauce made from raisins. This sauce is made by crushing 100 gm of raisins with water. 100 gm of sugar should be mixed with it and allow the mixture to heat. When the mixture obtains a sauce-like constancy, it should be conserved. Twenty grams should be taken at bedtime every day.

  6. A syrup of 1 teaspoon raw onion juice with 1 teaspoonful of honey kept over 3 to 4 hours serves as an excellent cough syrup. This is another superior Home Remedy for Cough.

  7.  Chewing betel leaf with 3-4 black Tulsi (Krishna Tulsi) leaves, a clove and a small quantity of menthol thrice a day provides relief from severe cough.

  8. Eating apples each day helps if you've got dry cough.

  9. For severe cough, mix tulsi juice with garlic juice and honey. A teaspoonful of this mixture taken once in every three hours will treat excessive cough.

  10. A teaspoon of honey, a pinch of turmeric powder, chewing cardamom for a while, a stick of clove, all these have proven very beneficial in treating dry cough.

  11. A cup of grape juice mixed with a teaspoon of honey is recommended for cough relief.
