Honey and Coffee Better Than Oral Steroids for Persistent Cough | Natural Medicine Journal

cough natural remedy naturopath london ontarioGot 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:
