Coughing is a natural reaction to a foreign body's presence in your throat. It is quite natural to cough once in a while, but regular sessions of cough can get to be quite irksome. It can be unpleasant while it lasts for even a short-term. One that lasts for two or three weeks can be quite disturbing, but it is a pointer towards an infection of the sinus, it can be a flu or it can be a symptom of common cold.
Either way, it is going to require a remedy, and if you are wary of the artificial stimulants present in the remedies sold in the market and over the internet, you are going to opt for some home remedies. Like you can take a spoon of honey and mix it with some herbal tea. The honey is sure to sooth your throat, while the herbal tea is going to tackle the congestion. Something similar can be achieved with the help of lemon-juice and honey.
Using honey to get over cough is going to prove to be more cost-efficient than any other drug or medicine you are going to buy from the local store. Moreover, it is going to taste a lot better. This is another of the ways our ancestors dealt with the problem when they were confronted with coughs.
But the treatment should not be given to babies less than one year of age. There is a risk of the baby getting some infant botulism, a form of food poisoning. moreover, it is widely held that babies are not able to digest honey well.
