What Should You Eat/ Drink if You Have a Cough?
A few slices of raw ginger root in boiling water may help relieve coughing and sore throat due to its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Ginger may also be helpful for coughs because it can relax the muscles in the airways.
Grate some ginger and add it to a pan of boiling water. Once the water has reached a boil, add the honey and squeeze in half a lemon. You are then good to go. This is helpful for sore throats and coughs.
Garlic can be eaten raw, cooked as part of a meal, or taken as a supplement to try to alleviate cold symptoms (which cause you to cough) or boost the immune system. Additionally, getting plenty of rest and fluids can help speed up recovery from a cold. Studies suggest that garlic may help fight colds and the flu, it may reduce your risk of developing an illness, and it may help you recover faster.
The majority of the health benefits of raw garlic come from an enzyme called Allicin, which has anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, antibacterial, and anticancer properties.
