It is difficult when you are coughing all day. You may not go to sleep because of that. Small children are some of the most affected persons with state like this since they have a weak immunity.
When you have a cough, you usually visit the doctor and he/she gives you a cough syrup. Most of the people think that this is the best solution. Actually, there are a lot of side effects and can create some complications.
Some negative effects from the cough syrup are: migraines, headaches and insomnia. These problems are caused by codeine and dextromethorphan which are part of the cough syrups.
However, we are going to write about some very effective natural ingredients which treat cough.
For example, you can use the honey, or you can combine honey and ginger to make a wrap.
- Recipe for a ginger and honey wrap
- Ginger powder or fresh ginger (one tablespoon)
- Honey (raw)
- Olive oil
- Adhesive tapes
You must combine the flour and the honey. Then you need to add the olive oil and later the ginger. You should mix the content. Take this mix and place it on a napkin and put gauze around it.
In the end, you should use adhesive tape to fix it on the chest.
If you use this on your child, the wrap should be placed there for about three hours before it goes to sleep.
For adults, they can hold it the whole night. The ginger wrap will help you sweat more than you usually do.
This ginger wrap won’t cause negative effect, but be careful when you prepare it for your kid since it has a really sensitive skin.
The story of Rachel Lim
Rachel Lim is a mother who did this to her kid and it functioned. She altered it a little since she used a tin foil. She did not use olive oil, but she used coconut oil. Of course, she used the ginger.
She said that her kid often coughed in the evening, two or three hours before it goes to bed. When she used the wrapped ginger on her baby, she got excellent results.
Rachel even says that her baby does not cough anymore. The most amazing thing is that she held this wrap only for four hours.
All in all, you can notice that ginger and honey are very helpful and people must use them more often.
