Common and persistent cold is very unpleasant and discomforting because it prevents people to focus and deal with their daily activities. Moreover, it also can be a great put-off for those around you at the time. This health condition can prevent you from get a good night sleep, and it is even more prominent in kids since their immunity is not strong enough to effectively combat the virus that causes common cold.
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.
We suggest that you try natural homemade wraps instead of drowning yourself in cough syrups.
THE RECIPE FOR THE HONEY WRAP:
-Raw, Organic Honey
-Adhesive Medical Tape
Combine flour and honey into a paste-like mixture, but try not to touch it. Then add a little bit of warmed coconut oil and mix well again. Next, put the mixture on a napkin and wrap it using a gauze. Attach the wrap on your back or chest with an adhesive tape.
If you use this wrap on kids, make sure to leave it on them for 3 hours prior to bedtime. On the other hand, when it comes to adults, they need to keep the wrap on overnight. They should know that the wrap will make them perspire a lot. This cough-relieving treatment has no side-effects, but be careful when using it in children, because keeping the wrap on their gentle skin for too long may cause unpleasant effect.
