What is the best way to get rid of a cough?

Report as

Is your cough part of having a Cold? Is your cough clearing mucus or is it dry and harsh? Is your cough causing nausea or pain in your abdomen? How long have you had the cough? Does anything relieve it?

First, stop eating foods that are mucogenic - dairy products, wheat products, anything high in sugar. Secondly, check to see if a simple OTC remedy like Mucinex from the Pharmacy will give you relief. This is very good for simple coughing, although I notice that people "get used to it" in a few days and it becomes less effective. Your Pharmacist has several effective expectorants, so if the Mucinex doesn't help - you can discuss this with them.

I give my patients White Horehound extract mixed with Wild Cherry and Sundew - that combination covers most of the common coughing triggers and helps to dispel the mucus. I find that Ivy Leaf extract is MAGIC at clearing away chronic mucus and easing the urge to cough....
