When we’re sick, our body ramps things up to protect us. An increase in mucus brings an increase in antiseptic enzymes and antibodies. Our noses run to wash out some of the germs, and make it harder for others to enter. This increase in mucous, coupled with narrowed inflamed nasal passages that accompany some colds and general bugs; can make for some truly uncomfortable days and nights.
This home syrup will help you eliminate the mucus in your lungs, and the best thing is that it is also great for children.
1 tbsp marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis)
1 tbsp flaxseed
1 tbsp sage
1 lemon, sliced
1 quart filtered water
1 cup of Pure Maple Syrup
Put the water in a small saucepan, then add the pure maple syrup. Preheat the pure maple syrup on a medium heat. Add the rest of the ingredients and turn the heat on low. After 15 minutes take the saucepan off the heat and strain. Take a tablespoon of the syrup three times a day. Use it until you feel some improvement and your cough is gone. Keep the syrup in your fridge.
Apple cider vinegar is thought to help thin out mucous being secreted, making it easier to drain the congestion. Lemon juice is also thought to help with congestion, although the exact scientific reason isn’t known, and makes the whole thing go down a little easier.
One thing to keep in mind-the best (almost) instant and natural decongestant out there is steam. If you’re in need of instant relief, hop in a hot shower or make a cup of tea/boil some water and breathe in the steam to thin out mucous so it drains easily. Have some tissues next to you!
