Rating: Best folk remedies for cough

Among the methods of combating cough, there are many folk remedies that are not so harmful to the child’s body, and sometimes even more effective. However, if used improperly, they will not only not be useful, but can also lead to serious side effects. In this article we will analyze folk remedies for cough from plant and animal products, and also consider recipes for their preparation, which can be used both for children and adults. The folk methods were commented on by our experts, pediatricians Yaroslav Matveev, Erdyn Baldanov and Alain Gritsay.

The best folk remedies for cough

1. Radish
For a long time, our grandmothers, when coughing, made syrup from radish. This folk remedy copes with a dry cough. Its special advantage is ease of preparation, as well as a rather pleasant taste that a child will like.

Radish Cough Syrup Prescription
We will need:

radish;
honey or sugar.
Take a medium-sized fruit and cut off the “cap” on the side of the tail.
Cut a hole inside the radish so that your radish becomes like a cup.
In a radish, put 1-2 teaspoons of honey or sugar. Please note that the radish should not be completely filled with honey. Juice will be allocated from it, which will also need a place in the hole. Therefore, the radish should be filled with about 1/2 honey.
Cover with a “cap” and leave the radish at room temperature for about 8-10 hours. Therefore, it is better to prepare syrup for the night, so that in the morning it is ready.
Syrup is taken in a teaspoon every hour. However, you should be careful with the child and give the first servings of the alternative medicine drop by drop, and then watch him for allergic reactions. It is better to coordinate this prescription with your doctor before use. Some recommend replacing honey with sugar to avoid allergies.

Doctor’s comment:
Radish and other “bitterness” provoke a cough center, due to this the child clears his throat more. However, with such recipes it is important to comply with the dosage. The cough center is also responsible for the gag reflex. And if you overdose, you can cause the child to vomit, and not cough.

Contraindications:
allergy to syrup components;
age up to 2 years;
gastritis with high acidity or an ulcer;
acute pancreatitis;
post-infarction condition.
2. Ginger
Ginger is an effective remedy that has an anti-inflammatory property. However, this root is a rather powerful remedy, which is contraindicated to some or permissible only in small doses. Consider the “soft” cough recipes.

Ginger Tea
We will need:

ginger root;
water;
lemon;
honey.
Take ginger root and peel it, then chop non-thin strips. Pour boiling water over it.
Add sugar or honey if you or your child are not allergic to these components.
Leave the infused drink for 15-20 minutes.
Drink 2-3 times a day for 100 ml. For a child, it is better to dilute the drink with warm water so that it is less concentrated. At the first dose, monitor the reaction of the child’s body to this spice. If you suspect an allergy, ginger should be excluded from the diet.

Contraindications:
child’s age up to 2 years;
gastrointestinal problems, gastritis, ulcer;
hepatitis;
heart disease
frequent bleeding;
fever; fever;
sleep disturbances.
