  • A hot tea is beneficial as well, feel free to add in honey if your taste buds desire. Any tea will work but Green Tea is best.
  • Around half a cup of water, 1 big spoon turmeric, 1 small teaspoon pepper, cinnamon sticks ..boil the above mixture for 2-3 min. pour it in a cup and add 2 big spoons of Honey.
  • Boil a stick of cinnamon in water until water changes color then serve with a table spoon of natural honey, and squeeze a whole lemon or lime.
  • Put VICKS on your feet before bed, and cover your feet with socks. Should help your throat, and cough. Great for children and adults! I have done this before and was amazed at how it worked!
  • Eat warm/hot soup to soothe your throat and fight your cough
