There’s nothing like a recurring cough to remind us how frail our lives truly are. And seeing how especially vicious winter has turned out this year, coughs, and the diseases which cause coughs, seem to be everywhere in major cities.
Coughs usually are telling you that there’s something wrong with your body. They are trying to clear up the central part of your respiratory system. They are caused by bronchitis, cold or flu. Instead treating them with traditional medicine try home remedies which are cheaper and more efficient.
– 2 ripe bananas
– 2 tablespoons of organic honey
– 400 ml. of water
Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork or a spoon. It would be better if you use wooden cutlery, because they will get dark if using metal one. Then, put the bananas in a pot and pour the boiling water. Let it soak for about half an hour. When the mixture cools down, add the honey. It is important to add the honey last, because it can lose its benefits if added in a boiling water.
Drink for 100 ml of this beverage 4 times a day. The amount of this mixture is enough for one day.
Besides helping to nurture your body, bananas can actually help you sleep better because they increase your night time serotonin levels. This makes it perfect to help you cope with the annoying night time coughs.
Besides being the perfect organic cough medicine, honey can also improve your sleep.
