During the winter when the weather is very cold, chronic coughs are very difficult to shake away, sometimes even so hard that not even the medicine can’t help us. But did you know that one of the most effective ways to fight this annoying health problem is a home remedy made from cabbage leaves and honey? If you don’t believe it, just keep reading, as what we have today is truly a “golden cure” for all coughs…
The best thing about this treatment is that it has no age restrictions, i.e. it is equally effective in both children and adults.
To prepare your own treatment, all you’ll need is a single cabbage and some honey. Here’s what to do:
First, slowly peel off the leaves from your cabbage and then put them for a few minutes in boiling water. They should become warm and soft.
When you finish, just rub some honey on one side of a leaf and place the leaves, honeyed-side down, across the chest of the patient. Then, use a nylon wrap to secure the leaves and wrap a scarf or towel on top of everything. The procedure should be done before bedtime.
In the case of severe coughs, you should wrap two sheets of cabbage – one on the chest and another on the back. The wrappings should be removed in the morning.
When you remove the wraps, clean the skin with a damp cloth or wash the place to get rid of any residue which the wraps have pulled from your body.
If bronchitis is in an early stage, results will be visible after the first treatment. The treatment should be done for a total of five to seven nights, after which the chronic cough should be entirely gone.
The reason why this simple remedy works is that the active ingredients in honey and cabbage, together with the heat, can steadily eliminate your cough and reduce the inflammatory process responsible for it.
You can also switch between honey and warm castor oil during the course of your treatment.
