Although coughs and colds are minor illnesses, sometimes they can be really irritating. For instance, coughing makes it difficult for us to concentrate and may also lead to a few sleepless nights.
In order to get rid of coughing, most people usually take cough syrups, which is far from the ideal solution because all they do is suppressing the pathway of signals in the brain that triggers severe coughing. Most syrups also contain codeine and dextromethorphan, ingredients that usually cause side-effects such as drowsiness, headache, and rapid heartbeat.
However, luckily for us, there is a natural solution that doesn't cause any side-effects. It is called Honey wrap. Honey is a natural antibacterial ingredient that will help you expel mucus from your lungs. It is also very good for the treatment of a sore throat and clogged sinuses.
Here is the recipe for the Honey wrap
– Raw, Organic Honey
– Coconut oil
– Adhesive Medical Tape
Mix a teaspoon of flour and a small amount of honey. Then add a little bit of warmed coconut oil and mix well again. Put the resulting mixture on a napkin, and attach the wrap on your chest by using an adhesive medical tape.
Adults can keep the wrap overnight, but if a child is receiving the treatment, the wrap can stay on its chest for no more than 2-3 hours. You should experience significant improvements after the first treatment, but it is completely safe to continue using the wraps for as long as you need to.
