Either an infection or an allergy usually causes coughing spells. Depending upon the nature and severity of other symptoms, people may or may not choose to consult a doctor for a cough. They may attempt to treat it themselves, either through self-medication or home remedies. The former path is unadvisable, but home remedies can be very useful in treating cough. Home remedies base their effectiveness on the shared personal experience of discomfort and relief that has been in vogue for many centuries. If one has a mild cough, they could try the following home remedies. Home remedies are an excellent way of regaining health as well as avoiding frequent intake of allopathic medication.

1. Honey

A spoonful of honey is said to calm a persistent cough more so than over-the-counter medicines. Honey is an age-old dry cough remedy that works wonders because of its analgesic properties. A rich demulcent, the golden nectar sticks incredibly to the irritated mucous membranes and coats all the areas to provide relief. Honey also has antibacterial properties which shorten the duration for which you may cough (if caused by bacterial illnesses). Simply mix honey in warm milk and drink it for relieving chest pain accompanied with an incessant cough. Organic, Manuka honey is one of the most potent natural substances on the planet and offers a multitude of health benefits.
