We all know how terrible it can be to get through the day if you are coughing and sneezing constantly. This is a real drag and it can slow down every activity you are doing daily. Plus, nobody likes to be in close proximity to a coughing person.
Additionally, the cough will also keep you up for the night, which is very annoying. Moreover, if kids are affected, due to their weak immunity, it can get worse and they will be unable to fight the virus, which may turn into a cold.
Normally, what you would do in this case is consult a doctor and you will probably get a cough description, like a cough syrup, which is believed to be the best medicine in this case. However, what you are not told is that pharmaceutical medicine might cause some side effects and severe complications, especially if you take them for a prolonged time.
Some of those side effects might be a migraine, headaches, drowsiness and rapid heart rate. Codeine and dextromethorphan are the two main ingredients which can be found in regular cough syrup.
What we are here for is to offer you an alternative, albeit natural remedy which will help alleviate the cough overnight. All you have to do is use raw honey and other potent ingredients. In this case we offer you our honey and ginger wrap, which will help you get rid of that nasty cough.
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger or ginger powder
- Raw natural honey
- Olive oil
You will also need a gauze, napkins and adhesive tape.
How to Use It
First, stir the flour in the honey until they are well combined. Then, drizzle some olive oil and add the ginger, stir again. Next, transfer the paste-like mixture on a napkin and wrap the gauze around it. Finally, secure it on your back or chest by using adhesive tape.
This remedy has no side effects, just be careful if you use it on children because their skin is more sensitive.
The Story of Rachel Lim
This is a short successful story about this remedy with amazing results. This mother used this popular wrap on her child and she was amazed with the results. She just altered it slightly and she used tin foil. Also, instead of olive oil, she used coconut oil and she added ginger juice, too.
As stated on her Facebook post, her baby always coughed at night and for about 2-3 hours later after it fell asleep. Thus, she applied the wrap on her child and she left it for 4 hours.
