If you’ve ever had a cough, you know how difficult it can be. Coughs are pretty tough to resolve and may last for a long time, and the ones that affect infants and children are definitely the worst. If you take your child at a doctor, he’ll surely prescribe cough syrup, and people believe it’s the best choice.
However, cough syrups contain a variety of drugs such as codeine and dextromethorphan which have adverse side-effects that can worsen the situation. Luckily, there’s a natural remedy that can help.
The remedy is pretty simple to prepare and is actually a ginger wrap that should be applied on the child’s chest. It will thin out the mucus in their lungs overnight and stop the cough, effectively treating all the other symptoms as well.
Here’s how to prepare it:
- A tablespoon of ginger powder
- Olive oil
- Adhesive tape
Mix the flour and honey first, then add the ginger and olive oil and mix well. Put the mixture on a napkin and wrap it in a gauze, then stick it on the child’s chest with adhesive tape. Leave the wrap to work for 3 hours in children, or overnight for adults. It will make you sweat more and promote elimination of toxins, while also resolving your cough. Although it doesn’t have any adverse side-effects, the ginger wrap can irritate sensitive skin.
Recently, a woman named Rachel Lim read an online article on the ginger wraps and decided to try it. She used the wrap on her daughter, and amazingly, it stopped the child’s cough in only a few hours! The ginger and honey mixture has been used against congestion and respiratory problems for a long time, and it’s the main thing behind the power of the wrap. Try it yourself and you’ll be amazed by the results!
