Homemade Cough/congestion remedy
Cough & Congestion remedy that works!
It's that time of year again when coughs and congestion runs high. I have a home-made recipe that I have used for years to clear out the crud and help restore breathing freely..... Made with items you probably have in your pantry, this concoction will help clear your sinuses and throat in no time!
Dr. Welch's Cough/Congestion remedy
2 Tablespoons honey (from a local source is best - the honey is then made from plants in your area!)
2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons water
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (brings in the heat! be careful or omit if on blood thinners...)
1/4 tsp ginger
--------------------------- that's it!
Take 1 Tablespoon and keep tissues handy for the outcome..... May repeat every 30 minutes as needed.
For a little extra "boost" I sometimes add 1/4 tsp of turmeric and 1 tsp of lemon juice.
You could also add 1/2 tsp crushed garlic to this to give it even more antibiotic power (but I do find that this works well as-is, too.)
If you try it, let me know what you think!
