How to get rid of a cough?
I have lingering couch and want it to be gone. Any home remedies that will help me recover more quickly?
Read my hub on natural flu cure. Cough will be gone immediately.
I personally do not go to see doctors. I have not seen one in years and I do not plan on seeing one. For coughs and sore throats I drink tea loaded with honey. Sauna, hot baths ... such things help me.
Although my father had a cough two years ago in the winter for several months. Nobody (including doctors and specialists) knew how to make it go away. He took two weeks off and went down-south (to Cuba I believe). I think something with the ocean water, hot weather ... not sure but he came back without the cough.
Just my opinion.
I know how you feel, I have one too.
I always find my bad coughs soothed with lemon and honey in hot water.
Hope this helps!
Gargle on salt mixed in warm water, it always helps.
Avoid resorting to cough syrups till you feel you need to.
try eucalyptus oil....inhale a few drops in boiling water....a few times a day.....cont/....next few days....
ps - let me know if it helps.....
I don't like honey. Buy a cough syrup or just make some breathing exercise... also don't forget to pray. Prayer helps a lot. thanks.
a spoonful of honey will ease an achy throat temporarily, but drinking lots of water and getting plenty of vitamin c will help clear up your cough in the long run. gargling with warm salt water really heals up a sore throat. vick's or other menthol salves feel great on your chest and throat when you've been coughing a bunch, but nice hot steamy baths are my favorite home remedy by far!
If the suggested does not work, then there is only one way.
COUGH IT OUT!
OK, this sounds weird, but it works. If you are having problems coughing at night and having trouble sleeping, put Vicks Vapor Rub on your feet. No, kidding, it seems to work.
first off, i tell th person who is coughing to please go away,... if that person happens to be me,... i drink and shoot pool,... not real sure it gets rid of the cough,.... but it does a fine job of making me not care about i so much.
Gargling with the salted warm water helps at early stage, but so far nothing other than cough syrups worked for me...
There is a Propolis tincture, and if you put couple drops directly in a throat, it will create a thin coat that helps, but again I'm not sure that it completely stopped coughing for me.
here is the link for propolis: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propolis
I would suggest you to read my following hub about getting rid of cough....may be it's useful to you.
I am very glad to have found this opportunity to thank you personally.
I've always tried herbal remedies first for colds, coughs, and flu.
Drink lots of calamansi juice. (Lemon is okay but calamansi is better if you could find it.)
For really stubborn cough, boil several stalks of lemon grass or leaves of bitter melon for about 10 minutes. Drink the tea-colored water hot to help ease the throat.
For stuffy nose: boil onions, black pepper, ginger in vinegar. Gently inhale the steam into your lungs.
Hope these tips helped!

Chew a betel leaf with a few cloves.. You shall get a good relief.
The good old fashioned egg and brandy cure.
For three nights in a row, last thing before you go to sleep, beat up an egg white, add a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of brandy and drink.
1 spoon of ginger juice mixed with honey will certainly improve
if it is throat infection related cough.
See my hub http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/is-it-cold-or-allergy many helpful tips, i personally use zinc, and oil of oregano. Yes it works. If the cough lingers longer than 2 weeks, it could be an allergy.
