As the weather gets colder and colder, the recurring cough comes along to remind us just how frail our bodies are. If the winter turns out to be a really cold one, coughs and diseases which cause coughs, seem to be everywhere in the larger cities.

People typically associate a cough with old age, long term effects of smoking, or second hand smoke. Sometimes, it is linked with the natural condition for anyone living in major cities, such as Los Angeles, for example.

It is safe to say that coughs are neither a sign of health, beauty, or athletic capacity though. They can represent part of the body`s natural wisdom.

Coughs are the body’s way of cleaning up the respiratory system. Given that coughs are typically an involuntary action, they serve as a messenger, letting us know that something is wrong with our body.

Sometimes, coughing can point out a certain infection such as bronchitis or the common cold and flu. But a few days of constant coughing can make our body’s inherent wisdom an irritation which has to be dealt with. The first reaction to a cough is going to the local pharmacy and getting reliable cough syrup. However, this is wrong as it is nothing but throwing your money away in most cases.

Why?

Since 2006, research has continually shown that there is no evidence in proving that these products do anything to relieve a cough. At best, they can offer the benefits of a placebo effect caused by the little fortune these companies spend on advertising.

Even though it seems like a bitter pill to swallow, knowing that cough syrups are useless is the first step in learning how to treat them. Again, natural ingredients can offer some help.

Disclaimer: If you have a persistent, recurring cough that you just can’t kick, it can be a sign of a serious underlying infection or condition. Please visit your medical provider to be treated if this is the case.

Homemade Banana Cough Cream

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe organic bananas (look for spots).
  • 2 tablespoons of raw organic honey.
  • 400 milliliters of water.

Instructions:

First, start by boiling the water. As you wait for it to boil, mash the peeled potatoes in a large bowl. For the best results, use a large wooden spoon. Add the boiling water to the bowl, cover it and let it sit for half an hour. When it is cool, add the organic honey and mix it well.

Use:

Take 100 ml of this cough cream 4 times daily. Heat it up a little bit before you eat it!

How Does It Work

This cream helps you find relief as the body cures itself of whatever the cause of the cough.

In addition, bananas promote better sleep as they increase serotonin levels.  This makes them ideal for those dealing with annoying nighttime coughs.
