What if I told you that there was a natural alternative to calming these symptoms and that it would cost absolutely nothing to your health to give it a go?! The idea is to create a paste out of honey, coconut oil, and flour. After that, simply strap it to your chest overnight (if you’re an adult) to begin all it to aid in soothing your symptoms!
It is called a “Honey Wrap.”
What exactly is wrong with cough syrup and pharmaceutical options? Codeine and dextromethorphan
Codeine sulfate is what is called an opioid analgesic (a pain reliever) that has a whole slew of common side effects such as: drowsiness, light-headedness, dizziness, sedation, and the list goes on. Of course these can be amplified when taken with other medications which also induce sleep as is common when trying to tackle multiple symptoms such as mucus in the lungs, sinus pressure, and allergy symptoms such as stuffy, runny nose etc.
Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant that is commonly used in over-the counter drugs. This particular drug is used to suppress the signals to your brain that would tell it to spasm your lungs in attempt to purge it from irritants as well as the signals that would come from your throat that would tell your brain to make a powerful cough from your lungs to push the mucus caught in your throat out.
