A cough, or tussis, is a voluntary or involuntary act that clears the throat and breathing passage of mucus, foreign particles, microbes, irritants, and fluids, and is usually a result of viruses.
Short-term coughs can be a result of common colds, the flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, or laryngitis. On the other hand, chronic coughs might be caused by smoking, asthma, post nasal drip, GERD, and the use of some medications.
Yet, most of the over-the-counter medicines used to soothe coughs fail to treat the issue, cause serious side-effects, or need much time. Today, we will reveal a highly effective natural remedy that will quickly treat your cough:
- 2 ripe organic bananas
- 2 tablespoons of raw organic honey
- 400 ml. of water;
Boil the water, peel the bananas, and mash them in a large bowl using a wooden spoon. Then, pour the water over them, and wait for the mixture to cool. Next, add the honey, and stir well.
You should warm the remedy a bit prior to use. Consume it 4 times daily. Despite soothing the cough, it will also boost serotonin levels, and help you easily fall asleep.
