We’ve all had that persistent, annoying cough at least once or twice and we know how unpleasant it can be. Sometimes it can last for weeks and our throat becomes sore and inflamed, bothering us even more. Coughing is a normal mechanism that our body uses to expel the phlegm from our lungs and it’s a common symptom in colds. Heavy smokers also have to deal with it on a more recurring basis and they too know how annoying it can be. So, what is there to do to relieve this persistent cough and remedy the condition?
We could turn to over-the-counter cough syrups and lozenges but we all know they’re not as effective as we would like them to be. Any other options? Sure there are, you just need to turn to natural medicine as it has the solution for all your little, annoying problems.
In this article we’ll share with you the recipe for a homemade cough syrup that will help you put an end to that nasty cough and expel all the phlegm accumulated in your lungs. The syrup is easy to make, it’s not expensive and it can be used by both adults and children. You just need a few ingredients and a couple of minutes to prepare it and you’ll never use anything else for your cough again.
DIY Cough Syrup
- ½ kg carrots (organic)
- Some water
To prepare the syrup you’ll need a mason jar, a pot and a mixing bowl. Wash and peel the carrots and chop them. Pour water in the pot and bring it to a boil. Add the carrots and cook them until soft. Set the pot aside, take out the carrots and save the water they were boiling in for later.
Blend the carrots into a paste. Now add the honey to the water from the carrots and toss in the mashed carrots. Mix everything to combine and store the syrup in a mason jar in the fridge. Now just make sure to consume 3tbsp. of the cough syrup every day and your cough will soon be gone.
