Dry coughs are one of the most annoying health problems, which is very difficult to treat even you take medicines that your doctor recommended.
Bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. These are the tubes that carry air to and from your lungs. People who have bronchitis often have a persistent cough that brings up thickened, discolored mucus. They may also experience wheezing, chest pain, and shortness of breath.
Bronchitis may be either acute or chronic. Acute bronchitis develops from a cold or other respiratory infection, and often improves within a few days without lasting effects. Chronic bronchitis is a more serious condition that develops over time rather than striking suddenly. It’s characterized by recurrent episodes of bronchitis that last for several months or years. The constant inflammation in the lining of the bronchial tubes causes excessive amounts of sticky mucus to build up in the airways. This restricts the amount of airflow going into and out of the lungs. The blockage in airflow gets worse over time, resulting in breathing difficulties and increased mucus production in the lungs.
Believe it or not, this remedy made from cabbage leaves and honey is the most effective way to eliminate this disturbing health problem.
The best thing about this remedy is that it has no age restriction and it is equally effective in children, adults and even pregnant women.
Slowly peel off the leaves from your cabbage. Then, put them in a boiling water for a few minutes – they should become warm and soft.
Rub some honey on one side of a leaf and place the leaves, honeyed-side down, across the chest of the patient.
Then, use a nylon to secure the leaves and wrap a scarf or towel on top of everything. The procedure should be done before bedtime.
If you have severe coughs, you can wrap two sheets of cabbage – one on the chest and another on the back. The wrappings should be removed in the morning.
When you remove the wraps, you should wash the skin to get rid of any residue, which the wraps have pulled from your body.
If bronchitis is in an early stage, the results will be visible after the first treatment. The treatment should be done for a total of 5 – 7 nights, after which the chronic cough should be completely gone.
However, the reason why this remedy works is that the active ingredients in cabbage and honey, together with the heat, can firmly eliminate your cough and reduce the inflammatory process responsible for it.
