Cough

A cough is a sudden, explosive expulsion of air from the lungs, usually caused by the need to expel something from the air passages. Productive coughing brings up mucus (referred to as sputum or phlegm) while an unproductive, dry cough does not. [divider]. [tabs]. [tab title="Symptoms"]...

    Hi Jesus,

    Unfortunately I cannot determine which sort of cough you have, as I am not a licensed medical practitioner.

    Kevin recommends that you follow the steps:

    For a dry irritating cough, use an infusion of marshmallow leaves.

    For cough with mucus, make a tea of 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder, a pinch of clove, and a pinch of cinnamon powder in one cup of water. In addition, gargle a solution made from one pinch of salt and two pinches of tumeric powder added to glass of water.

    For chronic coughs, make a confection of one part sesame seeds (black seeds if possible) and 1/2 part shatavari. Add ginger and raw sugar to taste and take one ounce daily.

    Kevin also recommends drinking hot water with ginger and honey, in the morning and before bed.
    (Be careful so you do not burn yourself on the Hot water!)

    If your cough does not ease after these steps, then I recommend you speak to a Natural Health Practitioner.

    Kind regards,

    Emmelie

    Hi , Every single time i catch a cold of flu I get this horrible cough,it starts small at first than it starts getting bad to worse and worse, it lasts about 11 days and even on. By the end of the days it is better but it continues for more than the 11 days like for a 3 weeks but at the end of the 3 weeks i only cough ocasinally or when i breath a little cold air of after i get out of the shower . The coughing lessens, the loud sounds of the cough minimize, but it still is there when i go outside and the air hits me or after I take a shower and when I wake up in the morning or if i go to sleep any time of the day and wake up with terrible cough. Then this ends like 1 month and a week later if I remember correctly from last time. I have it now. I get a bit of phlegm or mucus and it is clear white with only little ocational green like material comes out whith every like big cough. and then as the days pass by after the cough lasts for more days when i get sick i get very thick mucus in my throat and i’m not sure what barking cough is but i think that’s how my cough sounds when its at it’s worst days. My throat also starts to get painful to hurt as i cough more and more and also when I swallow food or saliva. It happens every time i catch the cold or flu and I don’t know why.the My mom does not get the cough for that long and that bad neither my sister when they get a cold or flu even if we caught the same cold or flu. You know i was not going to mention this but just two coughs while i was brushing my teeth i saw a little blood but i think its cause my tooth brush maybe scraped the top of the inside of my mouth on top close the end i my teeth and i think my mouth was bleeding im not sure since i did not see any later on when coughing. I don’t take anything for the cough cause I don’t want to take drugs. I wanted to know if this cough was more than just a cold or flu cough cause it get really bad even though at the end. I would be so greatfull for you answers. I need you help in figuring out what type of cough I have natural cures team I can’t figure it out even though I read the type of coughs in the pages above.

    I see a couple of the same questions, but no answers. Are the answers sent privately? I’m wondering if any of the above recommendations are not safe for a 2 year old with a persistent dry cough, especially at night?

    My three year old has had a persistent cough for the past year. It only gets bad every few months. Any suggestions?

    Hi Andre,

    Please follow the steps above. But likewise, if the problem persists, please consult a practitioner.

    Cheers

    My wife has had a cough since early June 2011. It started off with a cold, tinny nose, sore throat for a few days on and off. We use the natural salt water gargle, Ginger etc.. Symptoms improved somewhat for awhile but then soon enough the coarse cough returned. At times it was a dry cough and some mucus also. The on and off cough, mucus continued thru July. My wife remained active but limited her workouts daily to light, light workouts. She exercises on a daily basis for the last 20 plus years. She did manage to relax for a week in a pool enjoy the sun and the cough did come and go during the week. She then got stuffed up, loss of sleep which resulted in a severe stye. Her eye could barely open for a few days. Her Dr. Prescribed gars one for her eyes and apo ciproflox which helped improve they eye but not the sore throat. A week later her Dr. Prescribed apo prednisone for a short time (2 weeks). it is day 4 and the throat feels better but the cough is still there? My wife is on day 12 with the resolve herpes cleanse which she was advised to continue. at this time she still workouts lightly, gentle stationary bike daily for 30-60 minutes daily but still has the cough haunting at times during the day. She wants to commence the Trudeau Daily Supplements seeing they arrived and is hesitant seeing she has so many things going on. Can you provide your opinion regarding this cough? would your Candida cleanse help better then the prednisone? How about the Trudeau daily supplements? Would you recommend she start with them at this time or after completing the resloveherpes cleanse?

    For my coughs I also swallow 1-2 Tablespoons of Mulberry Molasse (sweet and tasty) that helps sooth the cough.
