Home Remedies for Cough


A fantastic remedy to cure cough that I have personally tried it on my son. He used to have a very bad cough and throat infection every year since his first birthday. He had to be on strong antibiotics for a week. It was his 5th birthday when my beautiful mother told me to use this ultimate remedy. All you have to do is to take 3 cloves of garlic and 1 glass of milk with 2 glasses of water. Bring it to boil and then simmer till ¾ glass of milk is left behind. Strain it. Make it every day for 7 days and drink it last thing before going to bed. You will see the difference in 3-4 days.

Although the taste is not that bad but you can add honey as desired for a more better flavor.
