Slice up a brown or yellow onion and place it in a breathable bag such as a linen bag. Put it is bed near the face of the sufferer and it will stop the coughing within minutes. If the sufferer is awake, tie the bag around the neck and lie down on the couch with eyes closed. I thank God for the wonderful herbs He gives us to help our sicknesses!
Red Onion. I am from Mexico, and my mother recommended me a red onion home made syrup for nagging coughs.
My first son had a times a cough that would never really go away. My second son was an extremely premature baby and therefore with "weak" immature lungs. I used this homemade syrup after trying everything, including various homeopathic formulas.
The original syrup calls for sugar but I have replaced it with honey or stevia. The onion has to be RED onion and I give it to my children either as lung strengthener or as medicine qwhen they do have a cough or cold.
1 big red onion washed and peeled.
sweetener (brown sugar, stevia, honey)
Cut the onion HORIZONTALLY in slices. Start at the base of the onion. Lay the newly cut base and place base in a bowl. Add a layer of the stevia or honey in here. GO easy as you have many layers to go and the sweetener from the top layers will eventually sip through the bottom layers
Repeat until the whole onion has been cut and reconstructed on the bowl.
Let it rest for at least 15 hrs at room temperature. I do it overnight.
Next day I have a bowl with about half a glass of "syrup". Children like the sweet taste. It doesn't taste like onion at all.
I hope you find this remedy as "miraculous" as I have!
I have had a nonproductive cough for about 2 weeks. I tried the red onion and honey this morning and I feel like new! Just a little cough left but not bad at all. Thank you Earthclinic (again! ) and thank you Alicia for the recipe. This is a keeper and I will use it everytime a cough comes up.
Onion tea, grandma's remedy also, not pleasant to have it but it works.
Cough. i tried this recipe from a friend's mom and it worked wonders. Peel Red Onions and make thick slices (may be say 3 or 4). Keep the slice in a bowl and put 1 tbsp sugar, then put another slice and again put 1 tbsp sugar, repeat the process until all slices are covered with sugar. Do this in the night and keep it until morning. In the morning there will be some juice in the bowl. Squeeze the onion with your hands to extract some more juice and drink it. Do it for 3 days. i got relief immediately after the first try.
I found relief from coughing by spraying my throat with 3% hydrogen peroxide (use a nasal pump sprayer). While spraying, I would deeply breathe in to get HP into my lungs and sinuses. Do this 5 times every 2 to three hours.
I also consumed a cup of hot water with a juiced lemon, a mashed garlic clove (almost liquified) and as much cayenne pepper as I could tolerate. I took this in the morning and evening.
The above remedies was what I used during a recent bout of flu. It cut the length of illness, stopped my coughing and I had no lingering side effects from the flu.
I have stumbled across a remedy for coughs and bronchitis. slice an onion and place in bowl layer with pure honey, leave sit for an hour or so, this will yield a syrup. Have a teaspoon every 15 minutes until coughing chest soreness subsides.
Fantastic remedy. I made it this week for my husband who had a nagging cough after a week-long illness, and at the same time recommended it to a friend with a 12-year old daughter who had been coughing for 3 weeks.
Both my husband and my friend's daughter a) loved the taste of the recipe and b) had excellent and fast results from it.
My friend actually wrote me the morning after her daughter's first dose; it had been the first night in 3 weeks that both she and her daughter slept through the night due to a complete cessation of coughing. She was absolutely thrilled and continued to give it to her daughter in the days to follow with great results.
Excellent and highly recommended remedy!
Ive been chopping up three cloves of garlic. Same amount of ginger and giving it a fry in the wok just briefly in virgin olive oil.. Then frying a slice of bread then an egg... Then press about a third of a teaspoon of cayenne into the fried bread on a corner.. and putting some egg yoke over it straight away and eating. The ginger has nothing to do with the crackily throut issue but.. The ginger really does act like a cortico steroid without any side effects for stopping back pain... (The actual recipe for backpain is ginger tumeric and cayenne) and need a full week to clear up any pain... but as far as the Throat and lung issue goes The cayenne alone will do it in no time.
Chopped onion fumes did not help me at all. And now my bedroom wreaks of onion. I was hopeful as I love natural cures. I also drank the Apple Cider Vinegar -honey drink- also did not help!
Someone posted a remedy for cough that was very simple and worked for me when I had a persistent bronchitis cough. It was an onion slice or two covered by honey, taken as often as necessary. I was amazed how well it worked.
Re the crackling breath... Garlic and cayenne should clear it up in a couple of days. You will cough some stuff up and that should be that.
Onions: can be made into cough syrup. By taking a sliced onion and then putting some sugar on top, and then let set for a few min. then drain off the juices. you can even eat the onion afterward if you would like.
peel one large onion and cut in in half, put a half a tablespoon of brown sugar on to each half of the onion, and cover it, let it stand for an hour. The syrup relish should be taken at least twice a day. It works wonders.
For Cough please try to drink Citrus Fruit Tea. Make Citrus Fruit Tea by simmering on low heat for about an hour a combination of juice, pith and ground skin of pomelo, grapefruit, lemon, lime, tangerine and orange, as little as possible amount of water to facilitate simmering, plus cinammon and black cumin powder. Once tea is ready, remove from heat and add wild, organic, raw honey to taste. Drink this three times per day. This will provide vitamins A, B, C, phosphoros, potassium, bergamottin, magnesium, flavinoids and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Buy or make Cottonwood tree bud balm (Balm of Gilliad) such as one available from Essential Northwest Botanicals. Rub balm on chest and reapply balm every hour. This will soothe and reduce the cough.
Take an epsom salt bath everyday. Make organic, grass fed bone broth vegetable soups with lots of onions and garlic, eat fresh berries, oatmeal, avocado and Salmon while avoiding potato, tomato, eggplant, fried foods, processed foods, breakfast cereal, soda, sugar and all GMO products. This will aid removal of dead cells from your body.
Gargle with water and pink Himalayan salt mixture three times per day. Also drink a glass of water with pink Himalayan salt once a day. This will kill the source of infection. Swish your mouth with virgin, organic coconut oil 2 times a day for 15 minutes at a time to aid your body's immune system.
I found your Red Onion recipe for coughs to be very effective. I did, however, modify it slightly.
I took 1/4 of a Red Onion and 1/2 cup of Honey and blended them together into a puree and strained the puree through a wire strainer. It seems to work fine.
I have been having a cough for past 6 weeks with varying intensity. To start with it was phlegmy and then turned to a non producing spasmic cough. I have had a course of antibiotics. I was getting fed up with all and then I tried some remedies recommended in EC. Took almond butter with honey, turmeric and honey in warm milk, ginger and honey in warm water, pulped ginger in hot water, thyme leaves in hot water, sugar and honey in layered red onion slices and drinking the juice and finally leaving sliced onion at the bedside table. Now my cough turned into green phlegmy cough. What is the best way to get rid of it? some suggestions, please. Many Thanks, SILVER NISSAN
Hi, I tried the red onion recipe and whilst I dont cough as much, I still have a crackling sound when I breathe out and feels tight around my chest. I had a cold several weeks ago which cleared up but the cough stayed. I feel ok, started on ACV & baking soda a week ago, mini protocol two days ago, am feeling not as good as a couple of days ago, but I think that is detox going on. Any advice on the chest complaint.
Hi Gavin, Thanks for the info, how much of the cayenne and garlic do you take? I find that raw garlic gives me indigestion.
