Sneezing and coughs can be very unpleasant, and also very difficult. They are harder to treat if they affect smaller children, because their immunity system is a lot weaker than the adult immune system, simply the child body cannot fight the virus.
If you visit the doctor because of these discomforts, he will prescribe a cough syrup. But using these syrups too often may cause negative side effects like headache, rapid heart rate, drowsiness or even migraines.
Dextromethorphan and codeine are the two most used ingredients in every cough syrup.
Used for over a millennia, ginger and honey are the top natural remedies to treat coughs and quickly get rid of it. If you use these as a cure there can be no side effects, because they are on a natural base.
Here is one of the most effective and powerful natural remedies, made out of honey and ginger:
- Raw Natural Honey
- Olive Oil
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated Ginger or Ginger Powder
Mix the flour with the honey until you get a homogeneous mixture. Then add the ginger and olive oil. Stir for a while and pour all of the mixture on a napkin. Then wrap it in a gauze and apply it on your chest or on your back, secure it to stay still with adhesive or medical tape.
