I'm at the tail end of a cold and have been up the last 2 nights with a dry cough. All the medicinal cough medicine and lozenges over here contain some form of soy, which I'm really allergic to.
Does anyone know of a natural remedy?
I really need to sleep tonight. I am no longer human. Lol.
I would be grateful for any advice.
Honey, lemon, hot water and whisky.
With or without the whisky if you can drink that.
Not sure in English name of the herb - coltsfoot, foalfoot? Make a tea. It changes cough from dry to wet
Thanks, you guys are awesome!
My Mum used to make me honey and lemon drinks. Guess she knew what she was doing.
I have some of the most important meetings so far in my career starting Monday and I feel like a zombie. I understand now why they resort to eating brains.
RFox; you might also consider the humidity in your living space, as well as other aspects of the air in your environment. Humidity has a lot to do with why people pick up germs and viruses... and substances in the i.e. air, dust, smoke, etc that could be afflicting an already dry condition in your body compound matters. Along with the tea Misha mentioned or in place of, find some dried eucalyptus for a tea and/or put in a pot of boiling water to make a steam to breathe. This would be very soothing to your dryness as well as add an antiseptic component to stave off any germs or viruses that may be present creatiang the cough. It's "mintiness" is also soothing..
In addition, do what soothes your soul. You are anxious about the upcoming career meetings. Give yourself extra emotional support with soothing and/or affirming components. All will truly be well, stay warm and confident, relaxed and calm this weekend with the suggested soothing medicinals. Eat comforting foods that are healthy and easy to digest, and drink plenty of pure water, not in tea, but in addition, at least a half an hour before or after you eat or drink anything else. This way the water will go directly into the cells where it is needed most.
And don't forget your Buddhist mantras,
isn't Tara good for healing? or any of the 33 manifestations of Avalokitesvara/ Kuan Yin
"Na-Mo To-Lo Kuan Yin"
pronounced "NAH-MO DWAW-LWAW GWAN EEN" meaning Hail! (homage to the sacred name of )Tara, Mother of Salvation
or "Na-Mo Shih Yao Kuan Yin" pronounced "NAH-MO SHE(R) YOW GWAN EEN" meaning Hail! (homage to the sacred name of) Kuan Yin who gives medicine
Good Fortune in your career moves,
Thank you so much for such a thoughtful reply. Sorry I'm late in response. Things were a bit crazy. I used everyone's great advice and managed to get some sleep, so thank you everyone!
And my career meetings went above and beyond my expectations so my happiness is helping me get better quicker. Now I'm home and have two days to relax and drink tea and put my feet up. So yay!
