Coughing can be caused by irritation in your throat due to allergens, also it can be caused of the buildup of mucous in your bronchial tubes. If not treated, it can further lead to bronchitis, chronic cough, and dry heaving in the lungs.
If your cough syrup or medicine doesn’t work, don’t worry, there are natural alternatives for treating coughing and one of them is the honey wrap.
Honey wrap has calming effect and will soothe the symptoms of bad cough.
How to prepare the honey wrap and how to use it
You will need:
-Raw organic honey
-Adhesive medical tape
Mix one teaspoon of flour with some honey, and then add some warmed coconut oil.
Apply to a napkin, and place in the center of your chest with some adhesive medical tape.
This all-natural compress can be applied to an adult overnight or to a child for only 2-3 hours. Repeat this for several times in one week.
The specifics of the ingredients:
Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, therefore it is thought to dissolve the lipid coating (lipid means the “fatty” layer which the virus used as protection) around some viruses and thus makes them more susceptible to attack by the immune system!
Honey has the ability to relieve common cold symptoms such as sore, itchy throat and severe coughing fits.
