A ginger and honey home remedy is all what many people need to ease their cough. The method of preparation and usage is explained. This method is highly preferred in Alternative Medicines.

It is always preferable to use natural and home-made remedies for those conditions that do not require the intervention of medical personnel. Ordinary cough, that is not the result of infection, is a good candidate for home remedies. Such natural remedies save you time, money, and often create no side reaction. The commonest and the most recommended remedy for non-infective cough is a mixture of the juice of ginger with honey.

Preparation: Take around 100 grams of fresh and healthy ginger. Clean them thoroughly of mud. Peal and rinse them thoroughly with water till the the remaining trace of mud is completely washed off. Shake the excess water off them. Pat them dry further with a clean and absorbent material. Then grind them to a paste and strain them to extract the juice. You might even use a clean cloth the strain the paste and get the last drop of available juice.

Mix an equal amount of honey and taste it. If you can bear the pungent taste, then the home remedy is done. If not, mix more honey till you can tolerate it. Take care not to overdo it, lest you be left with a lot of honey and little ginger. Pour into a food quality container, close the lid tight, and keep in a refrigerator. (Do not freeze!)

Usage: You can use this remedy, one teaspoon at a time, three to eight times in 24 hours. Retain a teaspoon full of remedy in your mouth for as long as possible, swallowing it as slowly as possible. Try to drink a glass of hot water half an hour after you take a teaspoon of this combination. It would be helpful for for you to drink the hot water slowly, at least as many times as you take this mixture. This is to help with cough and also to protect you from the effects of ginger in your stomach.

After the third or fourth time of taking this mixture followed by hot water, you will start noticing an easing of cough, and more easy expulsion of the phlegm. This means that the home remedy has started working. You should be in a comfortable position in less than three days if no infection is present.

Precaution: This Natural Remedies Factoid is meant for information and education. It should not be used as a substitute for medical advise. If the coughing is not eased within three days of using this remedy, or if it becomes worse, you must  contact your physician because an infection might be present that needs direct medical intervention.
