Homemade cure for cough

A few days ago I wrote an article about how to cure coughs by steaming orange with salt, and eating the flesh and juice. There are many homemade cures you can find in the internet. To me, most of these natural remedies have certain positive effects to treat coughs. As there are many types of coughs, I would assume that certain remedies would be more effective than others. It should also be noted that different people respond to the same treatment differently due to their different constituents and conditions.

Normal coughs are actually not a serious illness. For my case, I got the coughs only after a bout of flu. If I can contain my flu, I am free from coughing. Of course, if anyone has a prolonged coughing bout and not getting better even after the standard treatments, then it is prudent that a doctor be consulted. Be that as it may, all of us want to rid our coughs as quickly as possible because coughs are very irritating, uncomfortable and debilitating.

For this article I like to share a very simple and easy homemade cure for cough. You can try this method as a complement to whatever remedies that you are taking to cure your coughs. This method is to eat cucumber with salt.

Eating cucumber with salt

The method is so simple and easy. Wash a cucumber and cut it into pieces. You don’t have to peel the skin. It doesn’t matter how you want it cut; slices or in strips, or even eat it whole. Eat the cucumber with a pinch of salt for every piece or every mouthful. Eat as much as you like and as often as you can.

Hope this easy and simple method works.

You may also want to follow the other method which I wrote “How to cure coughs”.

      Hi kat_thurston,Kerry43, carol7777 and Lipnancy ,

      Hope all of you will never get to try this remedy only when you get the cough. But as a good salad, you may enjoy the salty taste of healthy cucumber!

      Yes, whiskey is supposed to do the trick too, and so is brandy.

      Thanks all of you for comments and vote.

      I will have to try this one. I still think the best cure for a cough is a shot of whiskey.
