Yes, that’s right, honey wraps can cure common colds very quickly. Cough and cold are minor ailments but sometimes it can turn into an extremely irritating and disliked disease.
A dry cough is especially more annoying as it makes you uncomfortable and does not let you concentrate on anything. In addition to the one who suffers from it, the ailment is also a nuisance for the people around.
Though it can be bearable during the day, it’s a completely different experience at night. The cough does not let up however hard you try to sleep. And so, many people end up relying on cough syrup to get relief.
Cough Syrups Suppress The Symptoms…
What the majority of cough syrups do is suppress the transmission of signals to the brain that triggers coughing.
Cough Syrups have two major ingredients codeine and dextromethorphan which suppress the signals and makes you sleep.
These, however, are known to cause certain side effects such as, drowsiness, headaches and rapid heart activities.
What Are Honey Wraps?
Interestingly, there is a relatively common ingredient that can not only help with a cough but has other medicinal properties as well. That ingredient is honey!
The use of honey wraps will not only help alleviate the severe coughing but also dislodge the mucus from the lungs. This treatment can be used for children as well as adults.
The Honey Wrap Treatment
