Suffocate a cold at the very beginning!

Health Tips

Probably everyone rejoices at the arrival of spring, but along with joy come all sorts of colds, which in this season are very easy to catch a weakened body. I say this not unfounded, because at the end of winter I myself had to experience all the “charms” of this insidious cold disease. And how much I had to listen to from good people of various folk remedies to get rid of a debilitating cough! And so I immediately wanted to share these useful recipes with you.

First, let’s find out what types of coughs are and what this or that type says. And cough is distinguished by duration (paroxysmal – with whooping cough; periodic – with bronchitis; continuous, short – with pleurisy); by timbre (barking, hoarse and silent); wet with sputum (with bronchitis, pneumonia) and dry (with diseases of the upper respiratory tract and in the initial period of inflammatory diseases of the bronchi and lungs).

For the diagnosis and determination of methods of treatment of the disease, the manifestation of which is a cough, you must consult a doctor. Only he can recognize the features of the cough and decide what to do in each case.: either prescribe antitussive drugs, or engage in distracting procedures (put mustard plasters, compresses on the chest, mustard foot baths, alkaline inhalations, etc.).

We offer you old folk methods of treating cough, which are no worse than medicines will help you in the fight against this disease (after establishing a professional diagnosis of a doctor for you, we will pay your attention to this again).

For example, the effective method known to many, in which a hole is cut in the washed black radish and 2 tbsp. l. honey; then the radish filled with honey is placed vertically in some dish and covered with thick paper on top for 3-4 hours; This remedy is great for dry cough. Only take the resulting liquid you need 1 tsp. 3-4 times a day before meals and at bedtime.

The next effective way to fight a cough is called “mogul-mogul”: whipped 2 tbsp. l. sugar and 3 yolks until smooth. You can add 50 ml of rum – the effect will be even more noticeable. You need to take this mixture 4-5 times a day before meals, 1 tbsp. l.

If you do not have to go anywhere, then we recommend that you prepare such curative, but (to put it mildly) smelly antitussive mixture: finely chop 10 onions and 1 garlic, pour the contents with unpasteurized milk, bring to a boil and cook until the onions and garlic are soft. Then add 100 g of honey and mix well. Take this remedy for 1 tbsp. l. every hour during the day.

Or another, no less effective, way to get rid of a debilitating cough: Mix 4 crushed walnuts with shells with 1 tbsp. l. black elderberry flowers (sold in a pharmacy) and 1 tbsp. l. honey. Then pour 0.5 liters of boiling water and boil the mixture for 30 minutes. Strained broth take 1 tbsp. l. 3 times a day.

But with such a decoction, which consists of products available to every person, you will extinguish an attack of coughing in the bud. To prepare it, you will need 1 unpeeled potato, 1 onion and 1 apple, which will need to be boiled in one liter of water until the water has evaporated by half. The resulting decoction should be drunk with a constant cough 3 times a day, 1 tbsp. l. Or mix grated onions and apples, add honey in equal proportions and take this apple-onion mixture in 2 tsp. 3 times a day.

As soon as you feel the first symptoms of a cold, immediately chop 2-3 large cloves of garlic, mix it with 1 tbsp. l. honey and 1 tbsp. l. butter. Put the mixture in a cup, pour hot milk over it, mix well and cover with a saucer for 2 minutes so that the mixture brews a little. Then mix everything again and drink in small sips all at once. Reception of “garlic milk” after a while can be repeated.

those who do not have heart problems, we advise you to pour a mixture of 1 tbsp. l. honey and 1 tbsp. l. vodka hot strong tea. Mix everything well and drink the resulting mixture. But after taking this remedy, you need to go to bed and cover yourself well, so you need to take it at night, and in the morning you will feel much better.

You can also try this decoction to fight a long persistent cough.: grind the kernels of 15-20 apricots in a coffee grinder, pour one glass of warm boiled water and let it brew for an hour. Then strain the resulting infusion and take it 1 tbsp. l. 3-4 times a day. This mild remedy is good for bronchitis, whooping cough and tracheitis.

In addition to the mixtures and tinctures we offer, There are other effective cough suppressants. For example, compress: for any cough, take a wide leaf of cabbage, lightly grease one side with honey and apply this side to the chest, cover with plastic wrap and tie with a warm scarf. This procedure should be done at night and go to bed with him.

Try also applying rubs – for example, from a mixture of turpentine and castor oil. Prepare it like this: 2 tbsp. l. heat castor oil, then add 1 tbsp. l. turpentine and mix well. In cases of a mild cold, it is enough to rub the chest once, and when the disease is running, you can do such rubbing 3 times a day.

After using the old folk antitussive recipes we have proposed, I am sure that you will take off your cold as if by hand. Or at least make it less painful. But in general, dress warmly in this insidious time of the year, and then no illness will bring you down, and you will enjoy the spring and awakening nature.
