Coughing is a natural reflex to help clear out foreign particles, irritants, and secretions from our lungs and airways, an autonomic response also known as tussis. The forced and sometimes violent exhalation can be voluntary as well as reflexive, since coughing is useful for moving and clearing out anything disturbing our breathing from the respiratory system.
Here on Earth Clinic we have a number of quite popular home remedies and natural cures for coughs as determined by our readers. We have received numerous positive reports about the use of apple cider vinegar, onions, hydrogen peroxide, garlic, and even menthol rubs to cure a cough. We are always interested in hearing about what you use to combat coughs and colds, and would love to hear about what you try or use regularly. If you have a remedy that isn't listed here, please feel welcomed to share it with us!

If it's green it's an infection (not getting better as it's coming up' as someone said). Lots of garlic, thyme tea, ivy thyme complex (vogel) half and other half echinacea, high dose vitamin c, zinc 3 times a day, vicks on your chest, steaming with eucylyptus, and if no impovement in a few days go to see a herbalist.
Skip the alomond, the butters, the honey on it's own (manuka with lemon fine), any sugars (like syrups) or these will be very mucous producing and lower immunity...
