Got a chronic cough? If your respiratory infections and simple colds and flu’s lead to days and weeks of coughing spells, you might want to consider a simple drink of coffee with honey as your treatment. Coffee has properties similar to steroids in causing relaxation of the muscles of your airways but it is not yet clear whether it is this function of the coffee or other unknown properties. Honey has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on the airways and to reduce coughs in a number of other studies as well. Regardless of the chemical constituents of these two natural substances, it is a tasty and harmless drink to calm your cough. Check out a review of this study in the Natural Medicine Journal link below:

Words of Inspiration
Illness does not appear suddenly. It develops from small daily sins against nature. When enough accumulate, illness appears.
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
~ Helen Keller
To keep the body in good health is a duty...otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
It is within my power either to serve God or not to serve Him. Serving Him, I add to my own good and the good of the whole world. Not serving Him, I forfeit my own good and deprive the world of that good, which was in my power to create.
~ Leo Tolstoy
