When we cannot seem to get rid of a cough, there are a variety of remedies that are offered. Most will reach for the cough syrup when they seek relief but what about those who are looking for a different form of medication? Wouldn’t it be nice to find a remedy that attacks the root of the problem instead of simply offering you momentary relief?
Coughs take place because of certain irritants. They also take place because allergens build up inside of the body. Mucus can build up inside of the person’s bronchial tubes and keep them from being able to avoid prolonged coughing fits. If these coughs are not treated in a timely manner, the person may even end up experiencing dry heaves. That is why this do it yourself cough remedy has become so important to our health.
Instead of relying on cough syrup that simply treats the symptoms without addressing the actual problems that are taking place, the honey wrap is here to save the day. The best part of all is that these wraps can usually be made from materials that we already have in our homes. No expensive trip to the pharmacy is necessary and this remedy offers rapid relief.
All you need to do is create a paste by using coconut oil, honey and flour. From there, the healing process begins when you strap the honey wrap to your chest before going to bed at night. You are guaranteed to wake up feeling much better than you did before you went to sleep. This remedy allows us to address the problem without having to rely on an opioid analgesic.
There is something to be said for a remedy that allows us to feel better without forcing us to feel drowsy or even high. Thanks to natural remedies like the honey wrap, we can avoid the common side effects that take place when we rely on traditional medications. To create the wrap, simply grab a napkin and some tape to go with your paste.
A teaspoon of flour is all you need. Mix in some honey and warm up the coconut oil. Once these steps have been taken care of, the makeshift wrap is placed on the chest and you are ready to go. It is important to note that the wrap can be applied to an adult’s chest overnight and a child should only be given a honey wrap for a couple of hours. Be sure to share this information with all of your friends and family members.
