Ayurvedic Home Remedies: How to Get Dry Cough Relief from Bananas

Parents were shocked earlier this year when the FDA issued a public warning that over the counter cough and cold remedies could cause "serious and potentially life-threatening" side effects. Parents of children under the age of two have been strongly advised not to use these products.

 

Pediatrician Dr Alan Greene has expressed his approval over the warnings and reassures parents that they are not missing out on effective remedies, but rather on pharmaceutical preparations that have proved to be no more effective than placebos in clinical trials.

Instead of using what he considers to be non-effective over the counter remedies, he is recommending that concerned parents step back in time and learn some natural home remedies instead.

Here's a simple recipe that shows how to make one of my favourite Ayurvedic home remedies for a persistent dry cough. It's easy to make, safe for small children, and it tastes delicious...

Mashed Banana Cough Relief Remedy


Ingredients:
1 ripe banana 1 teaspoon runny honey 2 pinches black pepper



Method:
Mash the banana, add the honey and pepper. Mix thoroughly and eat two or three time a day. That's it!

This simple home remedy is better in every conceivable way than buying over the counter cough suppressants. It's better for our children, it can be rustled up in no time from ingredients we usually already have at home, it's easy, it's cheap and there is no risk of nasty side effects.

Regular sips of boiled water cooled to a warm and comfortable drinking temperature will also help keep the tissues of the mouth and throat hydrated.
