How to cure coughs the natural way
Coughs are a nuisance. Whenever I caught a flu, usually it would end up with irritating coughs. There are lots of over-the-counter remedies for sale. Personally I found them not to be very effective.
There are also many home-made recipes. Let me name them here. Ginger and honey, cinnamon and honey, cinnamon and lime, apple cider vinegar, tea with lemon and honey, warm milk and honey, and even turmeric. If the above methods don’t work, you can add, taking hot bath or shower, chewing ginger condiment, and chewing peppermint leaves. There is even a breathing technique where you reduce the intake of oxygen to reduce or stop coughing. I am sure you have tried some of the mentioned methods with a degree of success.
If you like to add another in your list of home-made cures for coughs, here it is. I hope it is as effective as the others, if not more effective.
Cut top of orange, and cut flesh
Put salt on top of orange and close the top, and put in bowl and pot to steam
Steam an orange with salt
The method is quite simple and easy. Please follow the instructions below and take a look at my photos on the right. You won't go wrong.
Step 1. Wash a fresh orange and cut the top off.
Step 2. Cut through the flesh inside and around the orange.
Step 3. Add a teaspoon of salt on top of the orange.
Step 4. Cover back the top part with the cut piece.
Step 5. Place the orange in a bowl.
Step 6. Put the bowl inside a pot with enough water to steam the orange for 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 7. When cooled, eat the flesh and the juice, including the water in the bowl.
The juice and flesh are quite tasty, with the sweetness of the orange and saltiness of the salt.
Enjoy the fruit and juice; and I hope your cough will also stop for good.
