Home remedy for Cough and chest congestion

The next time you have an annoying cough and chest congestion, take my advice and try this natural remedy before you reach for the cough syrup. Turmeric powder, cloves, cardamom mixed in honey. Mix it up with warm milk or just eat/ drink it plain.


Dosage :

1 Teaspoon of this paste twice everyday. This paste tastes bitter. But since this is made of all natural ingredients and helps fight cough and congestion, you can just swallow it quickly like any other medicine. It tastes better with warm milk. you can mix 1 teaspoon of this paste in warm milk and then drink it up.
