A cure for the annoying cough?

My husband still has this annoying cough.  The one that’s been hanging around for a few months now.  (I know, I think he needs to go to the Doctor too, but…)

It’s a frustrating situation actually.  You don’t feel sick, and most of the time its unnoticeable, but every once in a while, it comes back with a vengeance, just to remind you, it’s not gone yet!

But I think I found something!  I found it on Pinterest!  I was cruising around, looking at recipes, and I came across a home remedy for the “hacking cough”!

It has 4 ingredients. Simple enough.  I have all of the ingredients. Why not give it a try!

Apple Cider Vinegar – Honey – Ginger  Cayenne…and some water

MAGGIE’S COUGH REMEDY

  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey

Dissolve cayenne and ginger in cider vinegar and water.  Add honey and shake (stir) well.  Take 1 Tablespoon as needed for cough.

A few nights ago, as he was experiencing a non-stop coughing episode, I mentioned my new find, and asked him if he was interested.

At that point, he was willing to give just about anything a try.

I mixed up a batch, gave it to him, and it actually helped!  It calmed down the cough, and cut through all the yucky stuff lingering in his throat.

It’s safe, (although not for children 1 and under) it’s effective, and it doesn’t taste as bad as the nasty over the counter cough syrup that usually doesn’t work anyway!

He calls it “liquid fire“.  I call it relief.  And quite possibly a cure for this annoying cough!
