Last year, I came up with a homemade soothing cough remedy using natural ingredients for my eldest son, who was having a really bad cough that didn’t get better despite having visited our family doctor twice and completing two rounds of antibiotics.
Hearing him coughing every minute or so made me so worried that I started looking up the Internet for home remedies for coughs – anything that could help quickly to alleviate my son’s coughing fits. I found many natural cough remedies and with what ingredients I have in my kitchen, I quickly concocted a cough syrup for my son to see if it would give him some relief. Well, it worked very well indeed!
I was happily amazed to find that his persistent cough did reduce quickly to just the occasional cough or two, and best is, he could sleep through the night without any coughing.
I even tested my cough syrup on my skeptical husband when he had bad coughing fits last month. His phlegmy cough got much better just after drinking it once at night before sleeping. The next day at work, his colleagues even asked him for my natural cough remedy recipe when they saw how his cough has lessened a lot so quickly.
Yesterday, my husband started coughing badly again, a dry cough this time. I was surprised that he asked me to make him some my homemade cough syrup right away.
