Amazing Home Remedies to Get Rid of Cough

If you’re desperately looking for Remedies to get rid of a severe cough, then this post is just for you. Take a look at these hacks and pick the one that suits you best!

1.Honey:

Take a pinch of turmeric and add it to a tablespoon of honey. Mix this with a glass of warm milk and consume it before sleep at night. Honey is a powerful antioxidant and an anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial agent and hence works wonders for a severe cough. You can add spices like pepper, cardamom, or cinnamon apart from the above two.

2.Turmeric:

Add a teaspoon of turmeric powder to boiled milk. Since turmeric, when mixed with milk, helps clear the throat, it also reduces congestion when consumed warm. This helps build the immune system by the hour.

3.Ginger:

Consume raw ginger dipped in honey or boil a cup of water with ginger pieces along with your favourite tea’s leaves. Ginger is an active ingredient from herbal concoctions to over-the-counter cough suppressants. Also, the antioxidant content in ginger helps boost your immune system.

4.Licorice Root Tea:

Brew dry licorice roots in hot water and sip the concoction thrice a day. If you need it to be sweeter, add a dash of honey. While licorice root is best consumed as tea and works wonders for curing cough and cold at home, it also helps thin the mucus, which is important to prevent congestion. It is also known to ease the irritation and inflammation associated with coughs for the glycyrrhizin content present in it.

5.Salt Water Gargle:

Mix a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and gargle thrice a day. This can bring you immense relief. Salt water helps bring down the discomfort associated with a cough due to its osmosis effect.
