Have you caught a cold? Do you suffer from cough, pain and sore throat? With the help of traditional medicine, you can significantly alleviate the course of most diseases, including colds. But before you start treatment with herbs and infusions, you need to decide what a cough is and how it happens..
So, a cough is a reaction of any organism aiming at removing sputum from the lungs. It should be noted that the cough is dry, in which sputum is not separated from the lungs, and wet, in which the removal of excess mucus from the bronchi is much easier..
If you suffer from a dry cough, then several recipes can help. Here is the first one: mix equal proportions of egg yolk, butter, linden (you can also flower) honey and wheat flour (about a tablespoon), mix. Take the resulting mixture in small amounts 4 to 7 times a day. It is also helpful to drink warm milk. Add a teaspoon of thyme, coltsfoot or sage herb to it, boil. After the milk has cooled down a bit, add a piece of butter and drink like hot tea, jamming with honey. Attention! Do not add honey to too hot milk, otherwise all the beneficial substances in it will be destroyed by high temperature. An infusion of linden blossom and licorice root in a ratio of 2 to 3 liquefies mucus very well. Pour one tablespoon of dried plants with a cup of hot water, let cool and infuse for 10 minutes, strain and take it warm in half a glass at a time.
How to eliminate a wet cough? You can breathe in hot steam by adding essential oils to the water: mint, eucalyptus, rosemary, thyme, fir, add grated garlic to enhance the effect and breathe for about 10 minutes. If you do not have any oils or garlic, then boil the potatoes and also breathe over the hot steam for about ten to fifteen minutes. Lungwort tea helps a lot. Indeed, in ancient times, tuberculosis patients were treated with such a drink. And the people themselves called the grass “lung” for its healing properties. Drink carrot or beetroot juice, berry juices or fruit drinks.
Pay special attention to black radish juice with sugar and honey..
Another good folk remedy for any cough is badger and bear fat. For 3-4 days, rub it on the chest and you will certainly notice an improvement in overall well-being and cough relief. This method can also be used by pregnant women..
One of the principles in the treatment of any disease is not to run them! After all, the complications that have developed as a result of our indifference to our health will take you even more time and effort to eliminate them.!
