No one likes the taste of cough syrup in their mouth and having a nasty cough that won’t go away has to be one of the most uncomfortable states of being possible. Coughing, of course, is due not only to irritation in your throat due to allergens, but it is also due to a buildup of mucous in your bronchial tubes which can further lead to bronchitis, chronic cough, and dry heaving in the lungs.
What if I told you that there was a natural alternative to calming these symptoms and that it would cost absolutely nothing to your health to give it a go?! The idea is to create a paste out of honey, coconut oil, and flour. After that, simply strap it to your chest overnight (if you’re an adult) to begin all it to aid in soothing your symptoms!
It is called a “Honey Wrap.”
What exactly is wrong with cough syrup and pharmaceutical options? Codeine and dextromethorphan
Codeine sulfate is what is called an opioid analgesic (a pain reliever) that has a whole slew of common side effects such as: drowsiness, light-headedness, dizziness, sedation, and the list goes on. Of course these can be amplified when taken with other medications which also induce sleep as is common when trying to tackle multiple symptoms such as mucus in the lungs, sinus pressure, and allergy symptoms such as stuffy, runny nose etc.
