Re: Please, tell me a way to stop coughing!! Is there anything natural i can make in the kitchen???
Most cough syrup is of dubious efficacy. Tell us what kind of cough you have. Then we'd know if you need an expectorant or not (to remove phlegm). Some cough supressants can actually exacerbate the condition if the wrong kind of ingredient is in it. For example, Fisherman's Friend is very helpful for some sore throats, but the main ingredient is very strong menthol and actually can cause MORE phlegm, which is a bad thing if that's your issue.

Is it a nuisance? Is your throat aching because of continual coughing and you need some sleep? Then usually you take a cough suppressant at nighttime, but then something else during the day. Something to calm the reflexive actions of the throat muscles trying to expel an irritant. Plus something calming for yourself so you get needed rest. Make sense?

The simplest cough syrup is some warm honey with a crushed garlic clove in it. I know, sound revolting, but it contains powerful germ fighters and WORKS. Then to boost your immune system, drink a small bottle of acai juice. That's important. A cough is an indication of probably a viral infection, but because as you eat the food particles get caught in the phlegm that is rising, a secondary bacterial infection can easily happen. It's why the doctor doesn't want to prescribe antibiotics, but then later if the illness does persist, it might very well have become a secondary illness on top of the first.

Look for irritants in your home that might be worsening the irritation in your throat. Something as simple as woodsmoke particles (very common in Winter) could be abrasive and stiring up a histamine response in your throat (since it's raw). Make sense? This can be the reason for a hacking cough, even if it's pet dander or cigarette smoke, even strong perfumes. They all can trigger that cough response.

Often, a good trick is to simply use something like an inhaler such as Primatene. It expands the brochi and extra opening allows any deep mucus to be expelled easier. Rather than spend a lot of money on a doctor visit, you might try a cheap and often just as useful solution like that.

Your body is trying to clear your lungs, so if you make the orifice bigger, you make the mechanism of expeling the mucus easier. Make sense? I know it seems weird to use an asthma inhaler, but sometime ask your doc about it.

This should be in your medical kit at home as it is so HELPFUL. Take a old plastic water bottle, cut a hole in one end, and spray the inhaler into the water bottle (it doesn't have to be large like the video) and breath in from that. Why? This allows the mist to mix with the air in the homemade chamber and allows more beneficial medicine to be absorbed versus a straight squirt into the mouth. It's technically called an extender, but those are expensive. This method is being used in 3rd world nations to allow the same effect to be done CHEAPLY.

It's very true that marshmellow root as well as licorice root can be found in herbal teas and these tend to calm down a spastic cough. You might consider:
[link to shop.traditionalmedicinals.com]
It's very cheap and WORKS. This tea is like a miracle. If you have heart problems through, licorice root can speed up your heart rate, so use caution if that's the case.

This is the cheapest and easiest way to deal with a cough.

Re: Please, tell me a way to stop coughing!! Is there anything natural i can make in the kitchen???
Blah blah blah.

Ever since I was small and I'm 50 now there is somthing that was used by my family for generations and its simple.

You can get it at the grocery store.

Yellow dry mustard. Get your self a can of it. Bring it home. Get some hot water and a towel like a tea towel.

You mix about 2 heaping tablespoons with 6 tablespoons flour. then add hot water to make a paste. Not to thick but not to slimmy either. Consistancy of pancake batter.

Pour it on to the tea towel in the center. Then fold the towel like an envelope.

Lay down all comfy and place it on your chest. Cover yourself up with a warm blanket.

The heat created by the mustard with it placed on your chest is like a poltice. leave it on for about 20 minutes. It will feel a little pickly but oh well. You can place another thin towel under the plaster also but don't make it to thick as to not penetrate your skin because you need the moisture from it as well to work. It will make your skin a little pink or red as well but oh well that goes away.

I swear Mustard Plasters work at drawing out a yukky couch and crap. Loosen up your chest so you can breath. I swear by them. The whole family swears by them. Mom used them on us and we use them on our kids and they will use them on their kids.

Your welcome.

I second that about the mustard. It's especially helpful if you're nasal passages are congested as well as the cough. One can simple take a teaspoon of chinese mustard. It's loaded with horseradish and will open the sinuses.

By the way, most large grocery stores carry Traditional Medicinal teas. It's inexpensive and there's no need to order it online.

I used to cough a lot as a kid because I had asthma. Believe it or not, a good, hot cup of tea always helped if the cough is coming from your chest and not post nasal drip

3% hydrogen peroxide in a nasal mister with tape dded to keep the top in a 'locked on' position. Point at back of throat and breath in sharply while squeezing gently. (it the top comes off while doing that you will die) 3 squeezes in the morning and night if you are a smoker a little more if you are not. 1% tastes better at first but 3% is more effective. A little between the cheek and gums is effective if rotten teeth are trying to cause an infection BTW. As a smoker it would take the morning cough away in 7-10 days for me then off for a month or so.

I had the uncontrolable cough for years. My chiropractor said my stomach was not producing enough acid causing my body to produce histimines that were causing the cough. (allergies) He put me on Betaine HCL and my cough is GONE!!!

I hope you figure it out and find the solution. I believe for every problem there IS a soultion. Hang in there until you find yours!

Hey, you're not on an ACE inhibitor, are you? One of potential side effects is coughing. Something you check out, if recently changed medications.

Dark chocolate, preferably with no dairy in it.

They've done studies that show it to be as effective as codeine.

And if it doesn't work, at least it tastes better than cough syrup or onions boiled in honey.

Too bad that article didn't mention Mullein:
[link to www.naturalnews.com]
You can buy it in bulk at the health food store and the plant is easy to find in the wild.

Brew a tea with the leaves, cover the pot with a tea towel and let the steam collect.

Then inhale the vapors and quickly strain the leaves and drink the remaining tea.

Since it's an expectorant you will cough for a while, but it will remove whatever is irritating your system.

Within 24 hours your nagging cough will be gone, although you may experience occasional expectorant coughs that remove more harmful material.

Good luck and best wishes for a speedy recovery!

For my cough syrup: peel one lemon, one inch of ginger. Pit in blender and blend fine. Sieve into a bowl. Add a cup of raw honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon and one 1/8 tsp cayenne powder. Stir, place in jar in fridge. Lasts several months. Use as needed. Take directly or in hot tea or water.

No bullshit.

Crystal meth is the cure; snort it.

Consult your doctor; side effects include

habit forming; impotence, obsessive compulsive behavior, sleeplessness, hallucinations, heart palapations, anxiety, and sudden death.

Glad someone mentioned vinegar on the first page. Wish I would have known about vinegar in my early life when I was plagued by awful bouts of bronchitis.

I learned about vinegar stopping coughs at Earth Clinic, here's their cough page:

Vinegar really works! It's like a miracle.

I suffered badly from lack of vitamin B12 and B6, I thought I would die of caughing (don't smoke or drink, healthy living) still, I just run out of these vitamins, so I bought multivits with extra B12-B6 and also ordered Chlorella from Ebay (blood purificator), it cured me from a dangerously low health state, hope you can find you cure!

Re: Please, tell me a way to stop coughing!! Is there anything natural i can make in the kitchen???
When I was a kid, I used to cough so hard my throat would feel raw whenever I would get headcolds. Health problems and allergies prevented me from taking a lot of the meds out there at the time.

My mother made a concoction which soothed my throat and seemed to lessen the cough.

She filled a large glass with really hot water, put in 1/4 tsp dried ginger, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, and 1tbsp honey. She then stirred it up and told me to sip it. I remember breathing the vapor of the hot mixture seemed to help my sinuses a bit too.

One warning though, don't drink down the mixture too quicky, you need to sip it or the vinegar can upset your tummy.

Another thing you might want to try, OP, if you have the tickly cough with sore throat- black strap molasses. Get yourself a teaspoon of that stuff and eat it slowly letting it dissolve in your mouth. It really helps soothe, but the flavor is hard for alot of people to take, so eat it slowly.

Also, be careful if you have any serious heart issues or take magnesium supplements, as molasses has nutrients which are not safe with those issues.

Are you on blood pressure meds? If so, have you changed recently? I had to quit taking one as it had me coughing to the point where I could barely speak without coughing. A change of meds and I was back to normal. Can't recall which one I was on, though. It's been several years. Still, various meds have different side effects--I've had erratic heart beats from a different sort, so if you are on meds, check back with your doc. Sometimes, it takes a couple of tries before you get the one best for you.

Some of you are right! Something's trying to get out. LOL

I thought it was allergies,but i'm like non stop now.

I was given a prescription for Tussionex but its $75 dollars and i'm not filling it.

I'll get honey and lemons and tea and some of the other suggestions.

Eldelberry is not so easy to find, i dont think. :-(
 Quoting: natasha77


In lieu of elderberry, use fresh, peeled ginger. You should simmer the mixture and add some of the peel of lemon (at least 1/4th of the lemon). Simmer until the peel is soft and edible, which is about 15 minutes.

Also drink lots of water.

Whiskey mixed with honey, and a piece of hard candy. let dissolve, throw a bit of cinnamon and clove and drink up. Also if you're all mucusey smoke some mullien or weed. They both expectorants and will clear out your lungs.
