Collected from around the world and through the ages



At one time or another just about all of us will come down with a bothersome cough from colds, the flu, sinus infections (and drainage) or whatever. Sometimes those coughs can linger on and on and often the irritation and tickling of coughs may keep us up at night. The next time you have a cough, instead of reaching for potentially dangerous over the counter cough medicines, try some of the following safe and effective natural and home remedies:

  • For deep coughs, nebulize with superior colloidal or ionic silver and lobelia (five parts colloidal silver to one part lobelia) as well as take colloidal silver internally and the Chinese herbal formula ClearLungs. That combination works wonders for helping get rid of deep coughs and congestion.

  • Neti Pots - Many people have found relief from coughs by using saline solution in neti pots.

  • Mullein is a very useful herbal substance for coughing.  It can be taken internally as well as nebulized in extract form.

  • Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) may be best known as a candy, but as a tea it can lick a lingering cough. Steep a licorice root tea bag or one teaspoon of the loose dried root in one cup boiling hot water for five minutes, and drink up to three mugs of it throughout the day. Your cough should improve right away, but you can continue to drink three cups a day for up to three days. Licorice can raise your blood pressure, so don't drink it if you have hypertension or diabetes.

  • Wild cherry cough syrup and decongestant. Cover the bottom of a crock pot with wild cherry bark. Add enough honey to cover the bark. Set the crock pot at the lowest setting, then cover. Let the mixture cook for two days, stirring every now and then.  After two days, strain the mixture and use the resultant syrup as cough syrup and/or decongestant.

  • Boil Thyme leaves and make Thyme Tea. This will help stop the cough from tickling you and from waking you up.

  • Soak almonds overnight. Remove their skin. Make a paste of these almonds with little butter and sugar. Very useful for a dry cough.

  • Hot tea with lemon and raspberry jam, drink as much as possible

  • Wild Turkey, lemon and honey. Mix four ounces of honey (especially locally produced raw clover honey) four tablespoons of lemon juice, and a shot glass of more of Wild Turkey. Take a tablespoon at a time as needed. Your cough will either get better or you will cease to care!

  • Drink hot milk with honey at bedtime for cough relief

  • If you can get herbal cough syrup made from yarrow extract, do so!

  • An odd sounding remedy that works is this one:  Take one tablespoon of Butter sprinkle with sugar (organic is best) and eat it.  Sounds odd, but many report it usually does the trick.
